Tapering

   Okay, I admit it.  I did not believe in "taper madness".  I thought once the training was done.  I could just go back to normal running.   Nope!  I have a ton of extra energy.  I tiled the kitchen floor (something I have been putting off for 2 years) and cleaned out both the dining room and the garage.  Problem is?  I still have extra energy.  Luckily I quit most caffeine out of my diet or I would probably be adding a room on to the house.
   At the half marathon, 2 weeks ago, I re-hurt my left leg.  I had originally got hurt back in April of 2012.  I do not know what is wrong with it and no I have not went to a doctor about it.  I took it easy since the last race and the pain is almost gone.  I am going to run the marathon.  However I know that it is most likely that I will injure my leg again.  The pain is right at or below my left knee.
   Wish me luck and my next post will be Post-First-Marathon.
