This outfit can be called: ‘I haven’t done laundry in weeks so I wore my last clean running clothes and didn’t care that I was wearing 12 different colors all at once.”
Gym treadmill today for a few reasons..
-It was freezing and windy and I have turned into a weather snob again.
-I didn’t have anyone to run with and I knew my sister would be at the gym on the elliptical and just being in the same building as her makes my soul happy (we kept waving at each other, it was cute).
-I really needed a recovery day and the treadmill is good for me because I can set it at a recovery pace and not be tempted to go faster than I should go like I am when I am outside.
7 miles in an hour and then a few pushups and planks to pretend like I am still trying to keep up with my strength training.
Brooke loves jumping. All day long. She now has her own personal little trampoline at home and she is in heaven.
The weekly Target trip (obviously we went to the bank before judging by the suckers… I remember I was always beyond happy whenever my mom told me she needed to go to the bank because that meant a sucker sugar high).
I have been craving Subway for the last few weeks (ever since I was in Thailand?!) and I finally fulfilled the need.
A few things I have been doing lately are very telling that I am in the midst of marathon training (this week will probably be my highest mileage week ever).
You know you are marathon training when:
-You go to the grocery store and you buy carbs, carbs and more carbs (missing from picture, the bag of chocolate chips that I opened in the car).
-You foam roll 6 times a day. Seriously. I refuse to get injured over the next 6 weeks.
-Your laundry load is 90% running clothes and 10% other.
-You start thinking… oh, I only have 7 miles to run today. ONLY!?! No, 7 miles is still a long ways to run. You’re distance perspective is crazy during marathon training.
-8 meals a day. Sure, why not?
-When you are driving around town you are thinking about how the road you are on would make a perfect tempo/part of a long run/hill work road for your next run.
-When people ask you what you are doing this weekend you respond by telling them about your long run because your weekend is kind of based all around the long run and you will be on the couch for a very long time after you finish your long run.
Do you have a gym pass? How often do you use it? Which gym?
Favorite carb lately? Favorite type of crackers?
