An Easy 14K Run

Today we had really crazy weather, almost every hour it rotated from sunny blue skies to a thick snow and back again. On the way home it was gray and snowing heavily, by the time I got changed and out the door the sky was blue and sunny. Figure that out???

Anyway I had a pleasant sunny 14K/8.7M run, easy pace about 5:42/K (9:10/M). My legs seemed a bit stiff from lack of activity this week, but my energy level is good. My cold is just about gone and I am feeling good. Now if I can only stop eating everything in site, I gained another pound!

This weekend I will repeat the run that I did tonight, e.g. same route, same speed. Next week I will run to 9K/5M runs (probably Tuesday and Thursday) and a 20 minute jog on Friday night. The marathon is Sunday the 12th at 10 a.m.

Hey, watch that eating, Jack. You don't want to lose your nerve at the last minute. One week to go. Eat right. Steer clear of the ice cream and Black Forest cake. (actually, I don't know if they eat Black Forest cake in Germany, it just seemed like a good German cake name).

Are you checking long term weather forcasts yet?
Step away from the donut! :-)

Try not to go mad during the taper. Can't wait to read about how great you do on the marathon!
