Yesterday we ran on a path that I have been on close to a million times over the last 16 years. Josse (my running partner) started talking about the candy bag. I had never even heard of such a thing. A candy bag?
We stopped along the trail and she showed me a bag that contains candy that has been there for a very long time along the path. Somebody refills the bag for people that need some emergency candy while they are out running or riding.
This is a total game changer for me.
I guess I will be taking this path even more often now.
Blurry picture because I took it while I was running but it sure was a gorgeous morning.
My legs felt like lead just like they did during my long run last week. I have been feeling great during my speed workouts but endurance runs have been feeling hard for me the last few weeks. I think my body can only zone in on one at a time—> building up speed or building up my endurance. Lately it has been choosing speed and wanting to take as many breaks as possible during the long runs. I also know that it always takes my body a few weeks of adjustment time to get back into marathon training, I just need to be patient. I’m not very good at being patient.
My lovely training partner:
After the run we went back home and I did some 8 minute abs (for some reason this never gets easier for me) and like usual, the second it finished Brooke made sure to tackle me.
And 4 things from yesterday:
1. Went to dinner with my mom, dad and aunt. My mom said, “Janae/Brooke is to Cafe Rio as Seinfeld is to Monk’s Diner (the coffee house they hang out at a lot).”
Yep, this place is kind of our second home.
2. After dinner I put my coat on and was out and about and realized a few hours later that it was inside out.
4. And some Aristocats watching before bed.
PS I am super excited to be a part of Daily Burn’s 9 Bloggers Who Changed Their Lives One Post at a Time!
Are you working on your speed right now or are you focusing more on your endurance? Or both?
Most interesting thing that you have found while out on a run? Ever found money? Candy?
