Welp, that was a struggle. I just could not get into a groove yesterday on my long run. I have this very complicated theory that if you have a really bad/hard/doesn’t feel pleasant run right before your marathon then you are actually just getting the bad run out of the way so that you can have an incredible run on race day. Let us all cross our fingers and toes that this theory is correct.
Smiling because I finished alive. 16 @ 8:09 average.
The scenery was incredible (like usual). This canyon of ours…
I did feel good during two sections of the 16 miles—> For the portion where we ran on the dirt and for the last mile (I hustled because I knew Brooke would be waking up soon and finished with a 7:20 mile and it felt pretty good).
First ones to the Noah Ark Splash pad yesterday morning. This may be our last splash pad experience of 2014.
My alarm went off in the 4 o’clock a.m. hour to meet the girls for our long run and so when Brooke took a nap yesterday afternoon I decided that I probably should too.
You know you had a good nap when you wake up with some sweet nap head.
Candice and I hit up the park for a few hours and one of my oldest and dearest friends came and met us.
My high school reunion was this weekend and so the girls were all in town. I didn’t go to the actual reunion but I did get to see some of my favorites for a few minutes.
I took one food picture yesterday. Long Run Day = Donut Day. The two go hand in hand.
DID YOU SEE THIS!?!?! WOWOWOWOWOW!!!!
(not injury hurt though:)
3 things that you are doing today?!
Anyone agree with my bad run before a marathon theory?
Naps—> Yay or nay? Perfect nap length for you?
