The Oakland Marathon is 8 days away. And, here is my checklist in preparing for it:
1. Injured. Check. My ankle/lower leg is still sore. It is getting better but very slowly. Hopefully in a day or two it will be fine. But, I can run on it right now.
2. Sick. Check. Even if I was not injured, I could not run because I started felling sick on Tuesday night. I went into the office on Wed and by later afternoon on Wed I felt horrible. I was sick in bed all Thursday. Hoping I get through this flu soon.
So for this tapering week I have only been able to run 4 miles on Monday. Hopefully, by Sunday I can get a couple miles in so that I can run a few times next week.
