To the newer followers of RTP: Welcome and thanks for following. I tend to clump my complaint blogs, and the following is a prime example.
I used my taper week this week and will have to run 35 miles the week before San Diego. Either that or resort to my own (admittedly ill-conceived) Couch to Marathon 5 day plan. HJG is not sleeping and he is making sure we aren't sleeping either.
I tried using that excuse plus the old 'work was busy' (it was), 'my itb is sore' (it is) 'I'm supporting Adam through his foot ordeal' (I'm not) excuses, but the fact remains, I did not make it out on the road at all.
Had a chance to run with Lauren and Demi this morning on our weekend canal run and DNS. Hope you guys are tearing it up! As The Governor of California once said, "I'll be back!!" He also said, "Get your ass to Mars!", but that's just sleep deprivation talking.
I am working more and more on the idea of changing to Half Marathon status for San Diego. I'm on a fairly minimal training plan, but not making the weekly goals. Feedback?
