Three Things Thursday: Alphabet, Sub Mileage, Fruit

1) Letters. There is no hidden secret that runners love to letters in the alphabet more than any. No matter if you run a 5k, 10k, 13.1, 26.2 or any other distance the letters P and R are nothing new to you. Every runner loves running a PR. Going into this weekend’s Asics LA Marathon not only will I be trying to attain the letters P and R, but I will also be going after 2 coveted letters that most marathoners look to add by their name. Those two other letters are B and Q. If marathon running is new to you, BQ stands for Boston Qualifier. For my to achieve those two letters I will have to run a 3:05:00 on March 17.

2) Taper Week. This is my taper week. Typically, I regretted the taper week. I though have embraced my taper. I have found ways to keep myself from going crazy during this time period. Since my first week of training this is the first week where I have ran less than 50 miles. I have typically been running an average of 80 miles a week including a 100 mile week right in the middle of the training cycle. As total mileage has dropped during my taper, I have moments to keep the intensity. This gives me my running fix.

3) Team SunRype. Yesterday I found a box at my front door that was left by FedEx. The box was filled with goodies from SunRype. Along with the edible goodies made of 100% fruit, there was some training gear. Between now and the end of September I am officially part of Team SunRype. SunRype sponsors me in my endurance events. Such an honor to represent a brand I know that is good for me!

 If you are tapering how is your week going? Are you joining me in LA this weekend? What are your goals?
