I have one more week of big miles and than we are going to do a mini-taper for Myrtle Beach Marathon. At this point, I am not racing it but using as another training run. I still have hope that the meds will have stabilized me by than I might be able to push it at MB. I have a short and moderate tempo scheduled for early next week to see how I handle it. So a good balance of hope and realism. I will be ready emotionally to handle either outcome. And if MB ends up being just a training run, I will enjoy that as well as I would a race. My family will be going for a mini-vaca and than onward to Boston! That will set me up well for 8 weeks of training for Boston and maybe I will be pushing it at Boston.
I am confident that I am on the right course and all is working for the good!
