Last Long Run

Saturday will be my last long training run (20km is the plan)! Then I have to deal with two weeks of taper, which I am not looking forward to because I’m already having issues. I don’t know how I am going to contain myself, how I’m going to store all that energy for 14 days and 14 nights!

At last weekend’s live play, I lasted through the first act of 75 minutes with only a tad of jitter. The second act, I left my friends to enjoy the play without disruption and sat by myself in the aisle seat of the back empty row.

I was a disturbance at work on Wednesday! A co-worker said "sit still"! There was no polite asking me to or suggesting me to, it was an abrupt "sit still". I did not even realize I was being a disturbance. I guess I should have clued in when shortly before that, another co-worker said "Thumper"! I just thought she was talking to her self, maybe it was a full moon or she was surfing and saw a Bambi ad.

My answer to the "sit still" was not to sit still but go for a 30 minute walk through the Plus 15.

I look forward to my last long training run so I can freely and enjoyable spend this energy. Oh my gosh though, the two weeks after that will be rough. I realize now, my co-workers are not counting down the days with me to the race because they are supportive of my running but because then they won’t have to deal with the shaking floors and furniture!
