This weekend I have my last 20 miler and a 7k race on Sunday. Ha! My taper was supposed to start on Monday of this week, but I’ve had to stagger it since the week before I did virtually no running and missed my long run. So this weekend is my last 20 and then Monday I begin a two week taper.
I no longer really give a shit as my training has been sub-par anyway. My goal for the race has dwindled the more my schedule gets cocked up and the closer I get to race day. Eh, I’m not too fussed about it anymore.
By the way, what’s the opposite of taper tantrums?
There is a disturbing trend of late—people using chat acronyms in everyday speech and not in an ironic or taking the piss kind of manner. Two friends in the last two days have each said ‘OMG’ when talking to me.
This TOTALLY irritates the hell out of me, especially when it spews forth from the mouths of members of my generation. We should know better. Saying ‘OMG’ takes just as long to say as ‘oh my god’ so I don’t see the point. Also every time I hear it, it makes me think of OMD the 80s group which then leads me to this.
Happy weekend, everyone.
