Hello, groovy people, and welcome to a brand new week!
Sometimes we don't feel like putting a whole post up but just want to share something small, so this is a great place for doing that during the week. It's always inspiring to see everyone's training updates!
If you're new or a lurker this is a great place to say a little hi without the pressure of a full post.
Let us know how your training, running, racing is going!
I know a fair few of you are coming to the tapering stage of your training now, or at least considering it. Many of us get very anxious at this stage, but I'd like to recommend that you look back at how far you've come and relax! You'll be keeping up the pace, but you can also enjoy the reduced long runs - the extra time in bed is very nice Plan some activities to help you feel more peaceful - could be a spa day, a good book, a new running route, a lovely walk, a yummy dinner (cut down on the alcohol though! And drink plenty of water!!). Stop worrying about all those little niggles you might be feeling in your legs, maybe try instead using that fabulous brain of yours to conjure up gorgeous images of you racing under the finishing arch, arms aloft, big smile, flying feet!
What have you got planned for your taper? Are you tapering at all?
Have a zen week of running
Ju-Ju, Rignold, and Roseabi
