I remember very clearly the moment that my legs and knees stopped rubbing together during a workout run and when my arms hung down straight to my sides. If one has never been heavy, it’s a hard feeling to describe. At that point, I had only lost a fraction of where I am now. I have recently hit the 90 pound loss mark from my very heaviest, 55 of those pounds lost in the past 4 years.
I’m in the taper madness phase of this upcoming race. Still doing a little something something but cutting back on frequency and intensity. And don’t even get me started on the eating. I know it is okay to eat a little more in the days leading up to the race but this hunger is beyond what I have normally experienced. My mantra this week has been “trust your training” so I need keep repeating it and know that I have done everything I can to get to the race start!
This has turned into a little bit of a rambling post so I’ll close for now.
