Let’s talk about race day goals. The other day I was talking to my coach and he asked me what my goalS are for the race. Ummmm… SUB THREE… I answered. Hello… I have one goal for race day;) He then reminded me that it is always a good idea to have a few goals (while holding onto your biggest goal with everything you have too) with the marathon. A million things can happen race day and having a few goals can help you keep things together if things start going south.
So, my goals for the race in very particular order:
1. Sub-3. Anything starting with a 2. (Around a 6:50 average pace)
2. Under 3:04—> my current PR but that was 5 years ago. (Around a 7:00 average pace)
3. Under 3:12:28—> my PR since having Brooke. (Around a 7:18 average pace)
As you can see… going from a 3:12 to a sub 3 is a big jump but I’ve done the work for it so I’ve got it right;) Just make sure to cross all of your fingers and toes and chant ‘GO GO GO Janae’ a few dozen times on Sunday morning. I’d appreciate it.
This was a huge deal last night. Brooke is at the PERFECT age for Christmas now. She is so excited for all of the things and she thinks Santa is the bomb.com… all of the previous years she was quite skeptical of him.
Santa made me come sit on his lap too. Any guesses what I asked for?
We had a Wednesday night girls’ night with my girls.
And my last heavenly salad before the race. Carbs and protein will be my staples from here on out (this is just what works for me and my stomach).
We did make a quick pit stop for a few of the chocolate covered Swedish Fish too!
PS have you ever played with this stuff? It is addicting.
Fun fact: Whenever I do my hair, Brooke comes in and joins me with her toy hair straightener. I’ve got a pretty great side-kick.
Rewinding a bit, I put quite the fashionable outfit together…
To go get a massage from Josse. My legs felt really tight, now they aren’t. I’m all set to go now! THANKS JOSSE!
