I’ve got one blurry picture from yesterday’s run.
I don’t think I actually woke up until about mile 11.
The run yesterday was the longest that I will do before the marathon. My coach said to stick between 7:30-7:45 average pace… so I did a 7:29 average pace because it brings me great joy to come within a second or two of what he tells me to do.
I didn’t do too many hills (a total of 650 feet gained over the 22 miles) and my dad stuck with me until it was light out. I need to dedicate this marathon to him. He has helped out so much.
Last week’s 20 (pretty much the same course) was a 7:35 average pace and there was a lot of cramping. Yesterday was longer and a tiny bit faster and it felt a million times better. Part of the fun about running—> you never know how you are going to feel during your run.
Only one more LONG LONG run (21 miles) before things cut back.
We got in some park time. She went down this slide with her shark 400 times and I stretched out because I was quite stiff after I finished.
Fast forward through two lunches (long runs will do that to you) at home and 101 Dalmatians watching with Brooke and then it was time to head north for the Taylor Swift Concert.
But first we stopped for our chicken salads. 5 lbs of goodness in the tin.
iron-on do it yourself shirts = much cheeper than buying shirts at the concert.
It was beyond amazing. I loved every. single. second.
After the concert I went back to my parents’ house to pick up Brooke and eat pb gelato while telling my mom all about the concert—> just like we did when I was in high school:)
I hope you have a fabulous Saturday! Get your run in and make sure to relax as much as possible!
What’s on your agenda for today?
