Swimming and weight training today. This is unofficially the beginning of the taper, but I still plan to do a mighty brick this weekend…if I don’t survive to write about it…
The Country Music Marathon and Half-Marathon is (are?) this weekend in Nashville. Here’s my plan: Go up to Nashville around, hmmmm, 2am, ride the full marathon course from the start to the stadium, turn around, ride it back again (the math on that is 52.4), get off the bike, get in a running corral, and run 13.1. What did you say?? Crazy? Insane? Completely certifiable?? That is the actual full distance of the bike/run portion of the race, then two weeks from Saturday we put the whole damn thing together…
Ok, so anyway, today’s swim/strength training was spectacular. I’ve got a little personal stuff on my mind and I think you know you’re an athlete when you know without a doubt you are going to feel better (physically, emotionally, spiritually) after a workout, and I was right. Personal stuff not one iota closer to being resolved, but your mind is more at peace.

We can check into the nearest mental facility together- think it’s in Woodbury- you can ride your bike there- I will take my car LOL….
Seriously, you’re not crazy- what a great way to culminate your training- plus all the excitment at the CMM- much more fun than running down the same highway with the familiar roadkill!
