Tapering is usually no big deal for me. Why should there be a big deal about running less, and your brain having more time to think about what’s coming. Usually I just bounce off the walls with excitement. Apparently this taper has decided to be different. In a span of 24 hours I’ve gone from running mile repeats, to barely being able to walk, not being able to walk (mom found a pair of crutches for me to use), sobbing uncontrollably, limping, sort of walking, walking, and now walking with no pain. The thoughts that run through your head after 5 months of training with all of this going on are no fun! No fun at all!!!!! Bad taper brain, bad! I found this on pinterest this Sunday afternoon. I’m making it my motto for the week!
