Ohhh Heeeeeyyyyy: OJAI.
T-2 weeks. That came FAST.
I have been having mixed emotions about this race. On one hand I am ready to go crush 26.2. It’s time for a marathon PR. Not just a few minute PR. A ginormo PR. On the other hand I have pre-race doubt. My heel is till nagging me a bit. That tiny bit of soreness could change the entire outcome of my race. Should I run? Yes. No. Maybe so. I hate that. I don’t want to run the race and feel disappointed at the finish. I want to give it my all. So here we are…
The past week (or so) has looked like this:
05/12- 18 miles (11 easy, 7 @ MGP)
05/14- Easy Run
05/15- Morning run: W/U, 4×800, C/D- 6.1 miles
Evening Workout: 1 hr Barre Class
05/16- 30 min Yoga
05/17- Easy Run
This weekend I am planning on yoga and my last real long run. Then it’s time to mentally prepare. And taper. Yes. Bring on taper.
Off to drink hot chocolate and put together party bags for my big boys birthday party tomorrow. I know, wild night. Try not to be jealous.

I know you will crush it. Marathons are like life sometimes the things we are the most apprehensive about turn out incredible. You are strong, fast and fully capable of achieving what you have worked so hard for. You got this. Enjoy your taper and knock em dead at O2O.
Party bags and hot chocolate were my Thursday night! We are wild girls :). Have a great weekend!
Good luck! Hoping your heel doesn’t bother you during the taper – that is the worst (when things pop up during the taper).
You’ve got this! I hope your mental preparations in these next two weeks are so encouraging and motivating! You’ve worked hard, and a marathon with or without a PR ain’t easy 🙂
You put in the effort/training – I think if you take it easy over the next two weeks, the heel hopefully will play nicely!
You. Great training!! Your going to kill
It! I can’t wait to see the recap!! Happy birhday to your boys:)
Looks like a great week! Barre class sounds awesome 🙂
If you’re going to PR Ojai is the place to do it! Taper away!!
