Maybe it is just me but whenever I finish my run and sit down to stretch or sit in my car I sweat like crazy. I sweat pretty moderately throughout my run but as soon as I sit down… that is when my body realizes that it is overheated and it tries to cool itself down big time. Just a fun fact. Or maybe not a fun fact at all but I wanted to see if that happens to anyone else?!
We met up together first thing Monday morning to log some miles together.
The drinking fountains along the trail are turned on again which helps big time. It is always sad during the winter months when we run by them, think about how thirsty we are and then remember that they are turned off for the season.
It feels so right to be running with the girls again and Josse’s ankle is slowly but surely getting better. Hallelujah because St. George Marathon training starts on MONDAY!!! I’ll be doing a 16 week training plan (my coach sends me the plan one week at time) for the marathon. 16 weeks feels just right for me when marathon training—> not too long and not too short.
I did the first 6 miles with the girls and then finished the last four on my own. 10 at an 8:00 pace. I was convinced yesterday that the treadmill is easier for me compared to running on the roads. I ran 11 last Friday @ a 7:18 pace on a 1% incline on the treadmill and then did 1 mile less yesterday at an 8:00 pace (pretty flat route too) and it felt way harder. It could have been one of those days that just feels harder but who knows… maybe the treadmill is easier for me!?!
Fast forward to dinner.
Pineapple should always be a salad topping.
It turns out that I am rubbing off on Brooke just a little bit. She’s just taking pics of our friends across the table.
And because I have nothing else to do with my life on Monday nights… I choose to watch the Bachelorette while eating TJ’s cat cookies. This show just makes me mad lately but I can’t stop.
We made an executive decision on the way home that we needed to stop for an ice cream cone. Neither of us were mad about it.
Just posted my favorite summer running songs over at Women’s Running!
Do you normally go faster or slower on the treadmill compared to your outdoor pace?!?!
Are you a sweater or a glistener while you run? Anyone else sweat way more after they finish running like me?
When training for a marathon——> how many weeks is your training plan usually? What about for 1/2 marathons?
Thoughts on the Bachelorette this season?
