Bangs has officially left Utah. I guess she had to get back to her husband and job or something silly like that. We had the best 72 hours together and I can’t wait until November when we get 1.5 weeks together. I will be spending Thanksgiving with her and then staying with her until the California International Marathon!
We have a lot of fun together.
Loved seeing the sunrise at the end of my run this morning.
I had a tempo run on the schedule for today.
The first 2 miles and the last mile were supposed to be at 8:00 pace and the middle 5 at a 6:30 pace. My coach scheduled in a water break during the tempo miles which I took and loved but I also had to stop at a few stop lights to wait for cars (I was running on busy roads because it was dark outside). I feel like the few stops that I had (and was more than happy) to take turned it into more like mile repeats but whatever, every run cannot be perfect.
The weather was perfect.
I came home and did sit-ups with my dad and Brooke. My dad couldn’t even do 1 a few weeks ago and now he is into 15 in a row. He really is amazing.
One reason that my run may not have felt like butterflies and sunshine was because Bangs Friend and I ate popcorn with M&Ms mixed in late last night while watching Grey’s Anatomy. It sounded like a great idea last night. YOLO (yes, I did just write that).
I may want to get my nutrition figured out if I really want that sub 3:)
And last fun fact of the day….I am running my FIRST RAGNAR!!!!! I am really excited about this but I am kind of nervous too because I have no idea what to expect. Running in the middle of the night? Running more than once in 24 hours? Eating junk food in a van full of friends? Okay…I am really excited about this.
I need some RAGNAR tips! Who has done one before? Which one?
Any Grey’s Anatomy fans?
-Last night was the first time I have watched it in years.
Where are you spending Thanksgiving this year (I know…it is still two months away:)?
Popcorn: Kettle or butter? Do you add anything in to your popcorn?
