I'm running out of things to write about. But that happens during times of taper. I put in four recovery miles at Crystal Cove State Park in the late evening and then hit the gym for some stretching and light core work. As Lindsay of chasing the kenyans and Brian of A Runner's Blog have been pointing out for a couple of days now, nothing that I'm doing now is going to change my fitness! ( Unless I overdo it -something that I used to do all the time).
So, with that in mind, today I will put in my final three miles on this cycle. The plan is a 30 minute tempo run, so I guess tomorrow's title will be "Last Tempo in Newport" (ha ha! How many of you are old enough to catch that obtuse movie reference?)
I also want to thank another blogging buddy for a great idea! Patrick (My New Life on the Run) suggested adding some Latin music to my play list in keeping with the Cinco de Mayo theme. I grew up in a predominantly Mexican area of Los Angeles, and we actually had roaming mariachi bands in restaurants on weekends, much to my delight. So, I snagged some Mariachi Sol de Mexico to add to my playlist:
My youngest son goes to school with Jose Hernandez's (the leader of this band) daughter. A couple weeks ago, the band performed at his High School just for the students! Wish I could have been there!
