Week In Review - 50K Training - Weeks 18 & 19

So, this is going to be a cruddy 2-week review. I have been doing this taper thing. A month long taper. In my world, tapering for the big day is easy. It is awfully easy for me to lay around in bed doing nothing. So, unlike others with the taper crazies, I am the total opposite.

So that is what I have been doing. No blogging, limited twittering, doing a whole lot of nada. Well, I have been watching OZ (I have never watched it before and should finish season 6 soon) and going to work, but a whole lot of nothing else is going on. Hence the crappy 2 week review post.

My brain has shut off. I really like being lazy doing nothing. Maybe that is why I don't go taper cray-cray.

Daily Mile stats
Hmm. Looks like I forgot to add a 5miler on the 31st. Oh wells. 

The green arrow on the pic above is from the BoGlow race. The start of my 4 races in April. I have also convinced myself that 4 races in April also means 4 weeks of pizza. I had post-BoGlow pizza. 3 more weeks of pizza to go!

This Saturday is the Beat Coach Pete 5k. If Petey runs another 27 minute 5K, I will (hopefully) be beating him. Next week is Robie Creek. The Saturday after that is my 50K and proof that my training did work. I have a secret time goal in my head. But, whatever happens, happens. I did some training miles the last few months. I have the next couple of weeks to prepare for non-training related issues. Like what to eat and what to wear. I am sure I will be wearing my pink Team Sparkle skirt, purple Dirty Girl Gaiters, my pink & purple Nathan vest and Hokas. As for the top-I don't know. I am sure something pink, purple, or black is what I will be searching for.

The training is done. The next 2 weeks is all about the taper.

Do you get the taper crazies? Or is tapering for a big race easy for you?

Editing to add a PS. There were multipule bloggie searches for my feet  this week. BF? Are you being the foot fetish creeper?


  1. The taper drives me nuts. I usually disappear because I have nothing nice to say. :-)

    1. Haha, we will see how I feel in the next week. I got pretty nutty the day before Robie Creek last year.

  2. Enjoy the taper!! Great miles you've put in, and best of luck with the race! Can't wait to read how it went!

    1. Thank you! I'm sure I will have nothing else to talk about other then the big race for quite some time after I finish. :-)

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday to me.

You know how I celebrated the start of my birthday on midnight at work? (I actually am not taking my birthday off. Why can't all birthdays be on a weekend day?)

Burpees, pushups, squats, crunches. One for every year. So, I did 22 of each.

Ok, 24. ;-)

Sunday, for the BFs birthday, we had a shot of Wild Turkey. And our birthday shot (which I found out Vista Bar doesn't do free birthday shots - shame on them! Looks like Neurolux is my preferred birthday celebration location because I know they give free birthday shots) made me want to really enjoy another, but I refrained.

Actually, I think this weekend, I will be taking in a cocktail or 4 at the Modern.

I also made sure to sign up for lots of restaurants deals for birthday goodies this year because I like being a cheapskate. I like it when places give you a week (or all month) to use the goodies and not just on your birthday day. I don't want to go for a free b-day meal alone on my birthday at lunch, wh…

Kiss Me Organics Organic Dandelion Root Tea - With Hibiscus & Cinnamon Review

This post is sponsored by Kiss Me Organics and no other compensation was given.

I love Dandelion. They are not really a weed, but they have so many health benefits. The BF started eating them a few years ago. And he picked the first one this last week for me to eat. He has even gotten some of his guy friends to start picking them and eating them regularly. Serious! I am thankful for this tea because I don't have to eat them out of the yard, unless I want to. They are full of nothing but health. This tea tastes way better then a flower out in the yard!
