First up, week 16 of Chicago Marathon training (taper week 1):
Signs you may be tapering for a marathon:
Tapering for a marathon can cause some craziness for us runners. Last week, I had already started to feel the effects of the taper and experienced some craziness of my own in the form of marathon “nightmares.”
On Sunday, I got to experience some other (unfortunate) signs of the taper during my 15 mile run when I diagnosed myself with at least 3 different running-related injuries. Isn’t tapering fun?
To follow up on my list of signs you may be training for a marathon, I’ve put together a list of signs you may be tapering for a marathon.
So yea, this is my life right now…
Someone PLEASE tell me they can relate!
OR- are you one of those lucky ones who actually enjoy the taper and don’t turn into a walking loony toon the weeks leading up to a race?
