Another way that Brooke is supporting my marathon training:
She understands my constant hunger from upping my mileage and makes sure to feed me her food too.
My mom recreated (minus the coleslaw + lots of veggies) my favorite meal from Disneyland—> baked potato with bbq chicken. She used THIS recipe and it was so good.
Brooke has taught me many valuable lessons over the last 29 months.
One of these important lessons—> adding sprinkles to a dessert always takes it to the next level.
We were in charge of bringing dessert to our family dinner, Rice Krispy Treats for the win.
And I am really excited about the fact that I have a brand new bag of popcorn. This Costco sized bag may last me 2.7 days!
Candice sent this to me yesterday! That means we are 98 DAYS AWAY FROM BOSTON!!!! WAHOOOOOOOO!!!!!
Here is how last week’s training went:
Monday: 10 mile progressive run. Started with an 8:12 mile and finished with a 6:46 mile. Average pace—> 7:40
Tuesday: 8 miles @ 8:34
Wednesday: Yasso 800s. 10 x 800 (or .5 miles) with an average of 3:06 with recoveries (.3-.5 miles each) in between each interval. 10 miles total.
Friday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace and lots of foam rolling.
Saturday: 16 miles @ 8:16. My ONE and only run outside for the week. That is just not okay.
Monday and Saturday’s runs didn’t feel great but the ones sandwiched in between felt awesome!
50 miles total for week #2.
