Rachelle and I started off our day with an easy 8.2 miles with the sunrise. I can’t tell you how much I love the fact that it gets light so early now.
I am starting to think I overdid it in the month of October/early November… within 4 weekends I did a 5k, 10k, 2 1/2 marathons and 4 legs at Ragnar. I know there are a lot of runners/bloggers out there that can handle a trillion races a year but I am not one of those. I am having a hard time doing any speed whatsoever… good thing that I have dedicated the rest of November to slowing down. Way down. (PS my quad is back to feeling 100% after getting it scraped… working on a post about it!)
FYI here is a great list of signs that you are overtrained. It is hard to recognize it in ourselves so lists like this always help me to slow down when I need to.
I have been experiencing the second one.
Girls day (like every day of my life) with my crew.
Note to self: go to Cafe Rio when it is 11 in the morning when it isn’t crazy busy like how it usually is. Usually every table is filled and there is a huge line but not in the morning:) The sis and I split a chicken salad and the girls had quesadillas.
She likes green smoothies. I do not. I would rather have a salad full of spinach and other veggies with a fruit smoothie on the side. I don’t like combining the two.

I think I wore Brooke out today because the second we got home she ran into my mom’s room to go cuddle and relax with her.
Are you a green smoothie person? What do you put in yours?
Have you experienced any symptoms of overtraining recently? Which ones?
How many races do you do on average a year? What can your body handle?
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
