Boston 2012 Taper Continues: 3.3 + 10.7 = 14 and Notting Hill
Well, I missed my weekly goal by 8 miles (45 instead of 53), but I took 3 rest days. They were the first rest days since Jan 3. In between then and now I had, 83 consecutive days of running, swimming or cross country skiing. Anyway, the mini-taper hit me hard today. After my morning 3.3 miles and 1 hour yoga session, I had to take a 2 hour nap. Then it was onto the couch to watch "ION TV's" back to back airings of "Notting Hill" with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant. One observation: Where are the cell phones in that movie? Surely it wasn't made so long ago that they did not have cell phones. A couple minor plot points could have been resolved if they had cell phones. Anyway, I think there was an apprehension in Hollywood in the first 10 years of cell phone use to include them in films. Now they are everywhere in the movies. But I digress... Anyway, I was slogging through that film, trying to get the will/energy to go run, and it was very hard to get off the couch. Normally, I am raring to put in a few extra miles, but today was different. Well, after too much sappy "Notting Hill" I eventually got out the front door and it was a hard 10.7 to North Ave. beach and back. Snapped a photo though:
Hope I am able to get some energy back to finish this thing off in a respectable fashion.
14 Miles for the day. 45 Miles for the week. The taper continues...
