I usually do my week of running summaries on Sunday but I forgot so here is last week’s running:
Monday: 10.25 miles on the trails @ 9:23 average pace.
Tuesday: 9.25 miles @ average of 7:40. 8 x 1 minute hill sprints and a fast finish with 1.25 miles @ 6:35.
Wednesday: 7.1 miles @ 9:10 ap on the trails.
Thursday: 7 miles @ 8:29 ap. Some on the trails, some on the roads.
Saturday: 18 miles @ 7:30 ap (with 8 of those at a 6:33 pace).
TODAY: 9 miles (7 of them on trails) with two of my favorite girls. I didn’t have my garmin with me (PS I LOVE leaving the garmin at home sometimes so that I just go off of feel and not off of time) so I don’t know the pace for my run today.
I have been doing a lot of my miles on the trails in the mountains which is keeping my body and my mind very very happy.
Brooke had her first (of many) Boston Marathon watching experience. I have been looking forward to watching the marathon for weeks. I could watch running all day long on tv even though I can only stand watching any other sport on tv for a total of 6 minutes.
35,755 runners at Boston today!
These athletes are so incredibly inspiring and watching them makes me want to train harder.
First American to win the Boston Marathon since 1983… and he is almost 39 years old. Incredible.

No big deals that the winner of the Boston Marathon and I are good friends (even though we only talked for 5 minutes.. we are still good friends and technically Brooke is too because she was in my tummy at the time).
The apple pie and a diet coke were calling my name for breakfast but I had my usual instead. Did I tell you that I have cut wayyyyy back on diet coke. I barely ever drink it (I did have a delicious one on Saturday) lately. It is hard but if I can just get to about 2 in the afternoon without one then it is easy after that. I am hoping it helps me get this Giardia far far far away from me.
The usual shenanigans with these two:
And then Paige and I attempted to eat bacon/avocado/turkey salads and sourdough bread at the park. I say attempted because our kids are at the age that means we eat a bite and then run over to save them from jumping off of something.
I came home to find this on my bed. My mom must have hit the after Easter candy sales… party at my house this weekend. .
Random subject of the day… I notice on the days that I don’t run or workout I eat more candy and junk than usual (ahem… Sundays) and on the days that I do run I tend to eat way healthier. Anyone else? Do you notice a difference in your eating habits on days that you workout vs days you don’t?
-Maybe it is easier for me to eat a lot of fruits and veggies after a good workout because I am wanting to refuel with the good stuff. Also, I am always more tired on the days that I do not run and maybe I reach for candy to give me energy? I don’t know.
How many times a week on average do you leave the garmin at home for your runs?
What is your “usual” breakfast lately?
