Taper Time. The hard training runs are done. I will cut my mileage down a lot in the next few weeks to allow the body to rest and regain the energy to excel on race day. My overall plan is to run a few 3 miles during the weeks to maintain my fitness. Also, during the taper, I am looking forward to putting on my comfy sweats, relaxing on the couch, and enjoying the holiday festivities. Chanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s!
This was a big running test week. The week called for a mock Dopey simulation. On Monday I ran 3 miles, Tuesday I ran 6 miles, Wednesday I ran 13 miles, and Thursday I ran 20 miles. This will be my last Dopey simulation before The Disney Marathon Weekend. Most of the miles were done indoors.
On Saturday, I rewarded my hard work by attending an Andrea Bocellli concert at TD Garden Boston. The concert was fabulous. He is a brilliant artist, and his voice is fantastic. Magnificent show.
Just an update. I am running the Dopey Challenge on behalf of the American Lung Association. This week was a 42-mile training week. Lots of hours on my feet
