1. It’s taper time. My body is freaking out. Or my mind is. Or my body is. I don’t which one it is but something isn’t right with my hamstring (and some of my IT Band). I have worked too hard to allow anything to be wrong before Big Sur. So, I am sucking it up and spending the money on a massage this week and one race week. I will continue with Physical Therapy too. I am debating stopping Pure Barre for the next 2 weeks to be safe. What are your thoughts? Do you continue to strength train or stop before a big race? I worry that I am pushing too much because my pain tolerance is pretty high but I am worried that I am going to make it worse. It’s like I can feel there is something wrong but it doesn’t make me stop dead in my tracks. Would you rest or run? Help. Please and thank you.
2. Big Sur also means vacation. I cannot wait. I have only been to California once and that was last year for a work meeting-which means I never left the classroom for a week. Some of the Big Sur team is extending the trip with me and we are headed to Napa, Sonoma, and San Francisco after the race. Any favorites or suggestions?
3. Do any of you track what you eat? I have read several blogs/tweets about people finding out they aren’t eating enough of this or they are eating too much of that. I wonder how hard it is to keep up with what you eat and when you eat—I think it is hard to remember it all. If you do track it-what do you use? Is there a good iphone app that also has a website?
Lots of questions on this 3 things thursday. Thanks for your help in advance :):)
