Yesterday was the last day at the Blend Retreat. Next year it will be held in Boulder, Colorado… I will be going every year from here on out… COME WITH!!!!
Brooke came up with me and as you will see she was quite the party animal and thoroughly enjoyed being surrounded by so many amazing people:
After Blend it was off to Sundance to celebrate my good friend’s birthday (they were in town for a wedding ((they live in the Bay Area)).
PS once upon a time (when I was 20 maybe?) I climbed that mountain in the back (Mt. Timpanogos). I think I was sore for a full month after that hike.
The best omelet of my entire life. I am convinced that they included a stick of butter in that thing because it was so crispy and delicious. I will be back for more.
After this marathon (ON SATURDAY… AHHHHHHH) I will be taking a few weeks off and then getting back to work to start training for the St. George Marathon. I will be figuring out what type of training plan/method I will be doing soon so I wanted to hear from you guys about where you get your training plans for races!
After I ran my first marathon I just kept up with long runs and stayed in marathon shape and then did my 2nd and 3rd (my personal record) marathons that same year. For the NYCM Marathon I worked with my physical therapist to come up with a plan because I was coming back from an injury. I didn’t have a lot of time to train for NYCM and I was just wanting to complete the marathon, not race it.
Having a running coach was awesome and I saw huge improvements (he sent me my plan for the week each week). For this marathon I did the plan that my running friends were doing because we are all about the same pace and running with people has become my favorite part about running.
Oh, and Brooke wanted to give you a flower today.
Where do you find your training plans? Which ones have worked for you the best in the past? The worst?
What are you training for right now? Or are you just working out to work out and enjoy that more than training for something?
Favorite omelet add-ins?
-Ham, cheese, peppers and mushrooms.
