(I think I fixed the Feedly/RSS feed/Bloglovin problem with my blog… will somebody let me know in the comments if it did or didn’t work today?)
Well, the last long run of this training cycle was done early yesterday morning. I wore lots of pink for the occasion.
A little disappointed with how my final long run went. My stomach has been really off for the last couple of weeks and we are trying to figure out what is going on but it isn’t pleasant. The workout called for 4 x 7:30 miles and 6 x 6:30 miles. After the first of the 6 @ 6:30 my stomach said no more. My speedy friend (he ran a 3:01 at St. George last year) was fine slowing down for the rest of the run with me and we ended with 10 @ 7:08 average pace. This is the thing about marathon training and racing… things always pop up at some point along the way so you just have to learn to work with it and be resilient. Things happen.
I’ve yet to ever have a perfect marathon training cycle nor do I know anybody that has had one so you just have to go with it.
The sunrise was quite perfect if you ask me.
Back in time to get the Brookers up and snuggle at the kitchen table…. just a normal Saturday morning occurrence for us.
It is always weird after a marathon because I take a break from Saturday long runs for a bit.
Our favorite (and only) September tradition! Third year in a row——> raspberry picking (we went and did it in Payson).
Debating whether or not she should eat this one or put it in the bag.
It sure takes a lot longer to pick them compared to how long it takes us to eat them.
And like many nights lately—> a lot of couch time at Megan’s house and some Sobe Lifewater.
And I am eating this beautiful Einstein bagel with almond butter and jam while chatting with you. I hope your Sunday is fabulous!
