As you know I got a cold the weekend of my last long run. The long run didn’t happen. Instead, I did an hour walk and a 30 minute bike ride, but wasn’t able to go a full 20. My cold turned into “the plague” on Tuesday and continued into Wednesday with a fever. So tapering has been a lot of forced rest so far! Some would want to get a long run in the weekend before, but I’m just going to do an easy 5-6 miler on Sunday with a few other 3 mile-ish runs thru Thursday before I fly down to Disney on Friday.
I’m not worried. I had enough long runs to where I know I am prepared to do a full marathon. It’s my 6th marathon in three years and my 3rd Disney marathon on the 20th anniversary of the WDW Marathon AND it’s also the place I ran my 1st marathon so it’ll be fun no matter what!
The real training for 2013 starts after marathon recovery!
