Apparently, a week or two before your big endurance race event, you are supposed to “taper down” to allow your muscles time to heal. During the taper down time, the training schedule is lighter than usual. This weekend was my final group training session. Some of our honored teammates (with leukemia) were there to support us and remind us of the great LLS Team cause. We walked 6 miles around Creve Coure Lake. I met a lady that walks about the same pace as I do, so at least I won’t be all alone on my 4 hour 13.1 Mile stroll through Saint Louis. I am pleased to say that I’ve still been keeping track my Weight Watchers points every day. I hope that it soon becomes a habit; however, I’m just happy that after the initial excitement wore off that I didn’t fall back into old habits. I’m scheduled to walk 2 miles tonight, 3 miles on Wednesday, cross train on Thursday and a final 2 miles on Saturday. Race day is Sunday….It’s so funny, because I look at the calendar like 2 miles? Really, is that all? I’ve come a long way baby!
