Once I got cleaned (aka a quick shower), we had dinner, but I was still wanting something extra. So, I made our tea. I'm in love with chai tea (I know, I'm late to the game). I had also made some coffee cake muffins, but they're just ok and nothing to really talk about. But, this did really hit the spot. I all this food was consumed, I was ready to relax, then hit the hay. I did have a 4 am wake up call.
This morning, I ran a nice, easy 4 miles. Nothing special. I did get caught up on my local news while I ran. This is the only time I have time to get my news (I'm usually asleep by the time Daily Show or Colbert is on).
I have a few favorite workouts during my taper. This may be old news, but a favorite of mine. You start in the plank position. Hold it there for a few seconds.
Then, you bring your left knee to the outside of your left elbow. Repeat with the other side. I repeat both sides 8 times each. It really works your core!
