- Running: Yesterday I logged another run and continue to feel Hopeful of making a full recovery. I must admit however I am still in utter amazement that these arch cutlets have seemingly solved a problem that has long stumped professionals and plagued my life to the point of having to give up on training.
- Racing: Sunday is the Capital City River Run and obviously there's no way I could possibly run the Half so alas, another race that wasn't. I had toyed with dropping down to the 5k but after consulting Coach EK we agreed that I'm not ready for that scenario. Between the adrenaline and crowds it'd be hard to avoid falling prey to the excitement and pushing myself. I need to be taking it easy and focusing on recovery to avoid re-injury so instead I was given the all clear to attempt a nice and easy "long run" of about 4.5ish miles. I'll take it!
- Support: Since I won't be running Sunday I have decided to join my new DM friend and spectate her husband as he races his way to a PR. I'll also be cheering from afar for a few of Spike's friends and Viper as they hit the streets of Akron for the Akron Marathon.
For those of you Chicago bound folks, I just want to remind everyone to take a deep breath and relax! Taper can be maddening but you just need to believe in your training and yourself!
