Since this is my first 1/2, I've never tapered before. I think this is more difficult than the actual training itself. I had 5 miles on the schedule. It seemed so easy (and I was really pushing it too). I wanted to run longer, but, from what I've heard and read, your not suppose to. I'm suppose to let my body heal right now and prepare it for the torture it's about to go through. I have so much built up energy, that I'm use to getting out after work. I guess it's a good thing the entire house needs to be cleaned before this weekend and I have a bunch of errands to run. Wish me luck on my taper.
I'm getting pretty sad, since I only have one more day of working out. I want to be well rested for my race, but I love working out. It's been a hobby since I was a little kid. When I was learning to write and had to fill out questions. One question would ask what my hobby was and I would write "working out". Most other kids wrote playing with friends or cars and swimming or something like that, not me.
On the other hand, I am very excited for this weekend. It's raining right now, I hope it gets it all out during the week and be some sun with a slight breeze for just Saturday. That's how it's suppose to be. But, I also checked the weather at the end of last week. I'm going to keep hoping for some "perfect" weather for my first 1/2.
