It is a little sad when you go from this being the view from your car…
to this being your view:
We decided to stop in Vegas on the drive home for a quick lunch and somehow that turned into walking around Mandalay Bay and eating at their buffet.
The highlight of the buffet was the sushi, crab legs, potatoes and the soft-serve.
Just a few random things.
-You know you are dating a really great person when you tell them on the way home from the beach… ‘that donut shop that we passed by 15 minutes ago looked really delicious’ and then they turn the car around and drive back to the donut shop because they know how much donuts mean to you
-Vacations are for donuts.
-What do you think—> Could you eat pizza WHILE running?
-I’ve had some people ask about where some of my clothes from the last few days are from—> Gap. Everything is 40% off there today!
-Total mileage for our road trip—> 1508 miles. I feel good about that.
St. George Training Week #8 (aka recovery week after my half-marathon last weekend):
Monday: 8.4 miles @ 8:20 average pace.
Tuesday: 6.3 miles @ 8:14 average pace. I realized during this run that my body needed some time off in order to recover properly from my race. I was exhausted.
Friday: 5 miles @ 7:52 average pace and 14 miles of walking around Disneyland:)
Saturday: 8 miles @ 7:53 average pace.
26.7 miles total.
Starting today (gotta love Mondays:) it is back to normal training, some weight lifting (Brooke has been hitting the weights more than I have) and attempting to eat like an athlete (easy for me to train like one but really hard for me to eat like one).
How was your running last week? What was your best run? Worst run?
What was the best part of your weekend?
How often are you strength training these days? On a scale from 1-10 how much do you enjoy strength training?
I would love to hear your goals for the week!
