What were you doing at 4:30 a.m. this morning? (Now you are supposed to ask me what I was doing at 4:30 a.m.) Well, if you must know I was sitting on the kitchen table eating my leftover macaroni right out of the bag with a fork. Cold. It did the trick except it gave the little girl the hiccups for the next 30 minutes but it was totally worth it.
I am afraid to say that the above food may be my new pre-race fuel of choice because I had an awesome run this morning.
10 miles (with 3 potty breaks…silly bladder). You know that you had a great long run when your computer runs out of batteries and you started with it completely charged. I watched Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition while I run. I love this show because it is so much more realistic/healthy than Biggest Loser and the host seems like such a good guy.
You can thank me in the comments for letting you know about the best way to spend your Friday:
A FREE Chic-fil-A meal (that includes lemonade;) if you just go in dressed like a cow. I am meeting my family there in a few hours and I can’t wait! Click HERE for more details.
I really wish that I had more exciting things to share with you today of what I have been up to but I decided that today needed to be a mental health day until Billy gets home from school. A mental health day for me means that I do nothing productive (in reality this is every day), relax, not think about anything stressful and instead just stare at the tv or the computer screen while laying down.
I found an AWESOME book list on Runner’s World with the best running books. I have read 5 of them but I am so excited to read the others.
What is your long run this week? How many miles classifies your run as a long run?
-Now it is 10 miles…that is LONG for me.
Any books on that list that you are wanting to read? Which ones on the list have you read?
Are you going to celebrate Cow Appreciation Day at Chic-fil-A?
What did you eat before your last race? Did it work?
