Training for the week..7 days out from 26.2

Monday: 9.7 miles
Tuesday: AM: 30 minutes PM: 2 miles with the neighbour
Wednesday: 2 mile w/u, 4X 1 mile on the track, 5:29, 5:22, 5:16, 5:13 (rest of 3-3.5) 10 min c/d
Thursday: 9.16 miles
Friday: 45 minutes easy
Saturday: 12.7 miles in 1:27 (relaxed and easy, 6:50 avg with some 6:10's thrown in just to make the legs feel good)
Sunday: planned 50-60 minutes

The workout on Wednesday confirmed that the track IS much fast than mugshots. I felt great the whole time, actually looking forward to doing a few more of those sessions after the marathon. This was a very much needed week of taper. 7 days...26.2 chances for the race to go badly...1 chance for it to go well :)

Miss Maddy turned 1 yesterday. We had a great time playing with balloons and stuffing our faces with cake.
