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.
