No running for me on Friday morning. We are running TWENTY MILES today (with 8-10 of them at marathon pace) and so I wanted to save my legs for this morning. Honestly, I am kind of really nervous for this run.
I feel like (who knows if it is true or not) I lost a good amount of fitness while in Thailand and during the food poisoning saga and I wonder if my legs will know how to do marathon goal pace this soon after. I did download some new power songs to listen to during the tempo miles so that should definitely make me run speedier right? That is just what I am going to keep telling myself.
This is getting out of control. These two.
I can’t help but eat all of the croutons out of my salad first. These babies are so buttery and injected with 5 cloves of garlic a piece… I should just get a container full of them and dip them into ranch and call it lunch. That actually sounds really good.
During Brooke’s nap I couldn’t stay inside (my mom was home so I gave her the monitor). It has been an interesting week and I just needed to be outside so I went on a long walk and then stopped at a place with a good view to read from my NEW BOOK.
Can you believe the mileage of the elite athletes!?!?! I had no idea that elite 5k runners were running over 90 miles a week!
I do not know why my iPhone camera decided to make Brooke glow but it did. I have been wanting to go see the Sacred Gifts exhibit at the BYU art museum and we finally made it over there. Incredible. The exhibit paintings were loaned from the Frederiksborg Castle and they have never been loaned out before… and they say that they will never be loaned out again so I am really glad that we were able to see them while they are here. Growing up my dad always took us to art museums (especially on vacations) and I want to do the same with Brooke.
I take the night before a long run meal extremely seriously. I ordered bbq chicken pizza but they brought out buffalo chicken pizza.. good but I probably should have had them bring out the one I ordered instead ha.
And some more time outside just because when it is spring/summer I never really want to go inside.
Long run or race this weekend? Details please!!!
