Since I can't run 40 miles straight for my 40th birthday I decided to do it for my birthday week. Luckily it wasn't a huge task since marathon training already has lots of miles.
So far being 40 is awesome!! I am in better shape now that I was at 30 (granted I had a 1 month old on my 30th birthday). Plus being 40 gives me 5 extra minutes for my Boston qualification time :)
Last week was the last week of big miles and training and now the tapering starts. I am so ready for the race to be here and to be done training for a while. I'm ready to run for fun for a bit. And maybe do a few half-marathons.
Today's workout: 8 miles. Last night when I set my alarm I was so excited to set it for 5:25 instead of 5:00. The hubby thought I was crazy when I said "yippee I get to sleep in". Apparently he doesn't think 5:25 is sleeping in :)
