Yesterday was the final double digit run of this training cycle. There were probably close to 30ish double digit runs completed in preparation for this race and the final one is done and now I just need to put my feet up.
Turkey crossing. There were about 50 turkeys crossing the road randomly as I was running by.
I got in some good hills and time on trails but overall I felt pretty terrible ha. This cold hasn’t turned full-blown but I’m not feeling my greatest. Colds rarely last over a week, right?! It will actually be the perfect timing because after feeling bad for a few runs with a cold, the ultra will be my first run back feeling normal. I’ll feel like a million bucks compared to running with a cold/cough so it will help me to just cruise!
Always fun to be greeted by the cheering squad when I get home.
They are quite supportive of this training.
Next week I have about ten miles total before the race… I can’t believe it is almost here!
Beretta got in some good running too. Her fast twitch muscles are about 1 million times more developed than mine. I don’t know if I know how to sprint anymore;)
My sister brought over leftover french toast from an event along with the syrup (from Magleby’s which ties with Kneaders for their french toast).
We had them for breakfast, lunch and snacks:)
We have a busy couple of Saturday’s coming our way so we were very laid back yesterday.
Andrew did put together the trampoline which was exciting (aka we don’t think it will snow anymore wahoo).
And for dinner we had a chicken fajita salad. Chicken cooked in the crockpot with salsa and peppers/onion cooked in a pan with olive oil and fajita seasoning. It was wonderful.
Here’s how running went this last week!
Monday: 5 miles @ 8:19 average.
Tuesday: 3.2 miles @ 8:50 average.
Wednesday: 5 miles @ 8:20 average.
Thursday: 0 miles
Friday: 4 miles @ 8:14 average
Saturday: 10 miles @ 8:38 average with some good hills and some time on trails.
27.2 miles total. Tapering is going well and starting tonight… I’m in bed by 8:30 every night until the race.
What was your best run last week?
How long does a cold usually last for you?
Was your Saturday pretty laid back or busy?
Can you do any tricks on a trampoline?
-Front flip for life… but the idea of trying a back flip terrifies me.
