Time To Taper

Ran with the Loudonville girls C-C team this morning at 7:00. They moved practice up an hour to beat the heat but it was warm by the time we got done. Ran 6 miles with Haley Young. However, I ran down to the school 1/2 mile, 1/2 mile warm-up and a 1/2 mile back home for a total of 7.5 miles. I need to start tapering so tomorrow I am going to sleep in and do nothing except some housework.Ugh!! After the run, did one more day of light lifting. That will be it for the lifting until after the 50k on Saturday. I won't get any swimming in either this week. It drives me crazy when I don't follow my workout schedule but I need to rest for the race.

I would like to ask anyone who reads this to say a prayer for one of Keith's friends, Nate Scarberry and his girlfriend Kate Thompson. They were in a car accident today. She was driving and lost control of the car. Nate was thrown out and recieved a concussion, a broken finger[which he had to have operated on] broken collar bone and cuts and bruises. Kate recieved a broken wrist. He has been a friend of Keith's since they were little.They play sports together and have had a lot of good times. It could have been a lot worst. I'm greatful that once they heal, they will be fine. It really makes you think about how things can happen in an instant!! Everyone please drive safe!
