It’s taper time, those last 3 weeks before a big event where you let your body rest. At this time no additional hard training will improve your fitness for the big day.
The Rock n Roll USA marathon in just under 2 weeks away. I have said good bye to Bodypump and spinning for these weeks and have lowered my mileage on runs. I am eating lots of protein and amino acids while also trying to eat for my current activity and not my usual weekly exercise.
I know I will feel overly energetic, but also somewhat lethargic during this time, however that is how I prepare my body for running the marathon. I am also using this time to visualize my race and plan for the days leading up to it.
Now I’m just counting down the days until March 16th.
