So much for a taper in running. How about no more running. I was told by my A.R.T. provider to completely rest until the marathon. 9 days of walking only. Hope it's all worth it.
I have a really tight hamstring. Plus my IT band is a little tight.
So lots of heat, rest, stretching, eating right, calm walking, foam roller, 2 more A.R.T. sessions. A massage on Saturday. Plus more rest and hopefully all will be fine in 9 days and I can run an awesome marathon!
I can swim and bike carefully, but no hills biking and no running. Boo. It will be a hard week, but it will all be worth it on the 21st! Bring on the marathon.
