This week was all about tapering for my first race of the season. I have to admit that it’s the least likable part of my training for Badwater. If one really loves to run, not being able to run for as long as one feels is a little bit of a challenge. Because less running means less eating and I really love to eat. Although, less time running means spending more time with all the other adventurous and interesting things in life like my husband, my friends, my cats, cooking Swiss gourmet meals and making more detailed plans about this year’s Badwater race. While I was running on the treadmill this morning I realized that I didn’t use any music during all those long hours running the Badwater Ultramarathon last year. Music and senses are very important in my life. So I decided I need to burn some very special Badwater Music CD’s. As a proud Swiss citizen I need at least a couple of CD’s with famous Swiss Music. In addition to the Swiss music I will have an emergency CD called “Songs for the Almost Dead” which will include the most inspiring songs I know to push me all the way to the finish line. I will start picking the songs tomorrow. If you have any suggestions please post them to the comments. Mille grazie!
