Normally Friday is speedwork day.
But, despite sports massage, stretching, and icing, my hip still doesn't feel 100 percent better. And the half marathon is only 9 days away.
While I'd normally only take it easy for a week before a half marathon, I've decided to extend my pre-race taper and start scaling back now: No more track workouts. No double-digit runs this weekend.
After all, one more speed session won't make or break my race.
But aggravating that hip could ruin it entirely.
So, I took a page from Peanut's book and decided to sleep in.
Now, I just need to figure out what to do with all this extra energy...
How long do you taper before your races?
