Let’s talk about the 10 highlights from yesterday and end things off with the very lowlight.
– Even though I woke up REALLY craving a good run, I followed my taper and the only running I did was chasing Brooke around my mom’s house. Usually during the taper I embrace cutting back on my running because something is usually hurting… but this time around, nothing is hurting so I just want to run:)
-And the reason I am not hurting this training cycle… Working with Dr. Bennett. Went in for my last appointment yesterday before the marathon. We worked on strengthening this area. I’m all good to go now.
– I love it when two very good things combine into one. Pumpkin cookies + snickerdoodles. Everybody loved them.
-Brooke’s latest obsession—> doorbells. You would think the world ended if I forget to let her ring our doorbell before going inside.
-We went to find some good throwaway clothes for Saturday morning because it is supposed to be freezing at the start. I didn’t end up getting the onesie because I found something way warmer and cheaper but I may go back and get it because it is pretty awesome.
Brooke was thrilled to be there:)
From my Instagram.
-Finally finding the answer to a question I have always wanted to know.
-I have NO IDEA where she gets her love for purses, samples and Costco from!?!
-Carb-loading party with the crew of St. George Marathon runners.
-This highlight doesn’t need an explanation:
And are you ready for the lowlight.
I had the door cracked open while I was doing dishes because it was raining outside and I love to hear the rain. A ginormous cockroach comes in and lands on my wall. This thing was huge. I had to get up on the coach to try to get it and then it jumped off the wall and tried to attack me (I think that was his motive at least). I screamed and jumped off of the couch and landed on the very edge of my computer (it was on the floor because I moved it off of the couch… I know, not my best idea but I was frantic).
Luckily, it is just cracked at the very top and now I can blame all of my spelling/grammar errors on the cracks;)
I just do not do very well with electronics.
Tell me a highlight from your week so far!!!
Who is racing this weekend? What are your goals?!
What are your runs like the week of a big race? Do you run the day before the race?
Are you feeling whole right now or is there anything hurting/bugging you when you run?
