2 days out from Denver marathon, had a textbook taper day:
No running, lots of eating, 2 hour nap.
Stopped drinking beer for the week, even though it's Isolation season.
I've done everything I can...except for training effectively and intelligently. Whoops!
I crammed some specificity in the last few weeks. Short distance speed is 'meh'...endurance seems OK but hasn't been tested...middle distance speed is OK. But I'm heavier than any marathon in awhile, gained a few pounds right after Lean (sic) Horse. C'est la vie. It'll be a fun time with friends and bands. Never did a Rock 'n Roll before, J and friends have enjoyed them, and I do enjoy a little energy from the crowds.
I won't lie, though: I will also try to get it over with as soon as possible.
