Who guessed that I wouldn’t even last one day without red wine and dessert?
Notice the bottle is half empty? I could hardly let it go to waste, so I HAD to have a glass!
And when there are peeps in the kids’ Easter baskets, I HAVE to sneak into them and eat them when the kids aren’t looking. Zero self control. So, once the red wine and peeps are out of the house, then I may think about abstaining for the rest of taper.
Oh – do you see the foam roller in the back ground? At least I’m taking care of the legs. Right hamstring has still felt a tiny bit off since last August, so I’m rolling the crap out of it.
Speed workout today. Less miles, same intensity. 6.75 miles with 6 x 800m at 5k pace. Ended up with very even splits (3:29, 3:29, 3:33, 3:32, 3:31, 3:29). It felt great. Now I just need to really think about goal time and pacing plan. I feel like I could really really smash my PR, but the more conservative part of me says I should take it easy and just go for a more tame PR. It’ll likely be a race day decision. I like Kristy’s motto of running the best that she can, on that day.
