Taper week! I love taper weeks because A. you get to run less and B. you feel like superwoman. I ran 12 miles Saturday and compared to the 15 or 16 miles from the previous two Saturdays, it felt like a breeze. Also, I was told I earned hard-core runner points because we ran the 12 miles in the rain. It wasn't cold, but it was pretty rainy for most of the run and that was a little annoying. However, it could have been worse. I'll take rain over heat any day.
After my 12 mile run, I also had cheer tryouts at school. I am one of the cheer coaches for the brand new squad at my school and I am pumped. Tryouts went really well and we had a great turn out! I can't wait to get started with practices!
This week the mileage is 4, 9, 5, and 18. 18 is a really long run. I'm a little nervous. But, I also know that once that 18-miler is over, I will feel super confident about being able to finish the marathon.
This week is also my first official week of school with my students! I can't wait to meet them all. We have some fun getting to know you games/activities and we are also diving into Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus. AH! I'm extremely nervous, but I am also so excited!
Happy Monday! Hope everyone has a nice week!
