Taper nearly done

So we’re on day 11 and I’ve skipped a few blogs but I’ve been tweeting so that counts right? Finally, after months wondering whether I was going to make it, the Liverpool Marathon is only a couple of taper days away and I’m a mad mix of terrified and excited.

Today’s taper run was really enjoyable, I left about 7.30am so it was late enough to feel happy along the canals and early enough for it still to be reasonably quiet and nowhere near too hot. In fact I had a really enjoyable 10k run and felt really positive when I got back.

I’d normally top that off with half an hour on the bike, but wary of Sunday’s race – and short of time – cut it back to just 10 minutes, followed by a good amount of stretching. Might get the foam roller out tomorrow too.

I’m going to really try to keep up the blogging over the next couple of days and definitely aim to get the big one done – a race report from the marathon – haven’t done one of those for ages.

Can’t believe we’re nearly half way through already, I need to up my game!
