I woke up remembering how I said I wasn’t going to run and instead do the elliptical today and tomorrow because of the race on Saturday. I then remembered the elliptical is boring compared to running and I am less of a beast to my students if I run. Plus why taper if I am not racing? (I knew you wanted to know my exact brain conversation from this morning).
By the time I got to the treadmill it was 7 on the dot so I fit in 3 miles and still made it to school by 7:46….don’t think too hard about that time frame or you may think less of me.
Yesterday when I got home from the track I had the best package ever waiting for me, THANK YOU CHOBANI! If you haven’t tried the blood orange flavor you simply must right this second.
I learned my carrying food technique from Gus Gus.
The other day I was wasting my life away on Facebook and I came across something that made me beyond happy! Kara Goucher’s husband, Adam, has started a blog following her journey to the 2012 London Olympics. Since I like to be referred to as her biggest stalker, I love having a new place with pictures of her and things about her training.
Kara and Shalane Flanagan are currently training high altitude (8,000 feet high altitude) in Mammoth. They are averaging about 120 ‘base’ miles per week. You can find the website HERE!
Just a few of my favorite pictures:
The Nike black and blue outfits are just about the cutest things in the world.
Maybe this one will motivate me to do core work someday….who would have thought that having a strong core could make you faster;) She makes it look so easy.
And for the randomness of the day:
Are these stats true for you? Do you tend to eat later in the day on Saturday and Sunday? Do your eating habits go downhill on the weekends?
-We do eat a lot later in the day on Saturday and Sundays and if my eating habits could get any lower then yes, I am sure my eating habits are less healthy on the weekends.
How often do you do core work?
Do you follow any elite athletes blogs/training?
Would you rather have a croissant or a cupcake right this second?
