We have our biggest workout of the entire training cycle TODAY so I decided to take yesterday off to prepare for it.
Brooke’s class earned a pajama day and that alone put her in the best mood ever when she woke up.
Great Harvest bread dates will be a lifelong tradition for Skye and me.
I went to the park with a good friend of mine (she is also going to run St. George and she is going to walk away with a huge pr:) She is helping me carbload with these.
Try them, they are delicious.
Got in some time on my mat during Skye’s nap to stretch things out.
Picked up some peaches later on in the day and I need some peach recipes from you!
My niece had an amazing race!
My kids really love my nieces and nephews.
He made it in time for soccer games!
The gear is all ready to go… 20 miles HERE I COME (and legs, I’m going to need you to move fast).
This is going to hurt but I want to be done before the kids wake up!
My friend posted this and I wanted to post it here too… FOCUS ON YOUR JOB:)
Random topic of the day:
I am lucky enough to get my own water bottles along the course at the St. George Marathon this year! My 1:20 half marathon time last month qualified me for an elite bib! I am very excited about this because Emilee and I are planning on running the entire race together (if we both feel great obviously) and she has an elite bib too.
I’m pretty excited about this but I probably need to practice a little more than just placing a water bottle on my kitchen counter and pretending to run by it. I think they are going to call me sometime soon to give me the details of how it all works but I’m really hoping having my own bottles can help me to run faster and really nail my nutrition for the race!
I’d love to hear what you do as far as hydration goes for your marathons? Anyone had bottles before… give me your tips?
-For St. George last year I held/drank from a little water bottle for the first 6 miles until I saw Andrew and gave it to him. At each aid station I would switch off between water and gatorade… and towards the end I always take water cups and dump them on my head.
Give me your sentence of the day!!
Any delicious peach recipes that you can share with me?
What time feels TOO EARLY to be setting your alarm clock?
-Anything before 5 a.m. haha but I guess it’s good to get used to this because St. George calls for a 3:something alarm clock too.
