Best laid plans....

Today we go out to the new house and do a walk through. We have been packing like crazy! Moving boxes of books!! I have a huge library. I'm gonna whine...as I was carrying one of these boxes my right hip and leg kind of twinged and gave out a little as I went up a step?
I never planned on moving during the taper phase of the marathon!! Such is life.
I stretched gently this morn before running. I started out very concerned. The leg and hip held up pretty good. I felt so strong and I can tell that even diminishing mileage by 22.5% I am already reaping the benefits of the taper. Cardio-wise I feel very confident about the marathon.
I stretched again after, took some ibuprofen, and began packing again...aarrggghh! I will post some pictures of the place! It's really a dream come true for us.
Put in 4.1 miles real easy. Still plan on the 12 tomorrow at MP. I think I'll have a bag of ice on hand and after the run I may hop in the tub with it. Wow..the weather is turning perfect for us runners. Hope you enjoy the day.
