- Menu Planning. I have more time for planning out meals during taper. Of course, part of that is because I think about food ALL the time--day and night. Dinner is planned for the rest of the week with meals best for carb loading.
- Social Networking. In the last two weeks, I have spent more time on Facebook and the Loop than ever before. And that is saying something! Just think of all the people I can encourage that way!
- Petting the dogs. After all, I am spending lots of time sitting. They love the extra attention!
- Manicures. With all the extra time and anxiety, my nails are getting manicured regularly. Of course, I tend to pick at my nails when nervous so I don't know that I can really call it a "manicure."
Hmmm, I am going to have to keep thinking of positives! I am rested and ready to run. I am finally getting excited. I am feeling more confident. My plan is to have not real plan, but to relax and enjoy the run. Stay slow and easy to start and finish strong. Marathon minus 3 days...
