Weekly Recap: October Week 4

 

Well friends, another interesting week for me. I am still having some medical issues, and have an appointment with the cardiologist tomorrow, so please say a prayer everything comes back ok!

Because of some of the issues I have been having, Bobby and I took it easy this week. We also knew we were running a half marathon Saturday (yesterday) and so we didn’t want to tire ourselves out, and rest was probably best anyway!

I am home for another week then out of town again, then another half marathon (Disney Wine and Dine) so I will get in a couple runs this week, but then next week will be easy again because I will be out of town and “tapering” for yet another race. It will slow down at some point right? I kid. I love it.

Be looking for a recap of the Jazz Half marathon tomorrow. It has quiet an interesting ending, you won’t want to miss it.

QOTD: Do you taper before a race? Any race or just longer distances?

Comments

  1. I taper for anything longer than a half. I find not running or running very few miles to be hard but I know it helps for race day.

  2. I hope everything goes well tomorrow! I taper for my longer distance races (half marathon and marathon), but don’t really find it necessary for the shorter ones.

  3. Great job this week! We do a roundup would be fun if you linked up!

  4. Hope everything is okay and you are back to 100% soon. I love the new bling!!! I have that same skirt, so cute! I don’t remember if I thanked you for featuring me on your blog. If not, I am such a turd. Thank you so much for featuring me. It was so fun to connect with other runners and I felt like a star for a day. Hope you have a great week!

  5. Hi Heather,

    Great blog and I LOVE the jazzy medal from your half!!! I do a weekly link up on my blog and I would love for you to join in the fun with your weekly recap post! Here is the link! http://meplusmytrainer.blogspot.ca/2012/10/sunday-funday-with-twiw-link-up.html

    Cheers & SPA love!

  6. I only really taper for a half or full Marathon. I ran in a 5K this past sat and I didn’t really taper. I lowered the intensity, but that all. In college xc we never tapered much either.

  7. I’m a saxophone player – so you can only imagine how much I love that medal! I would love to run this race!!!! Congrats and hope you are better soon. I am 7 days into sinus infection / bronchitis. Finally coming around the bend…
