OFFICIALLY IN THE SINGLE DIGITS: 9 days and yesterday was the last time I will wear my florescent jersey before CIM!
The original plan was for us to race the turkey trot yesterday but my coach saw that we were really feeling worn down so he told us to run it for fun and we will do a 3 mile workout on Saturday instead. It really is so nice to be able to meet with him in person so he can really get a feel for where we are at with out training and adjust accordingly.
Right now we need as much rest and recovery as possible with a little sharpening and that is what we are going to do!
From when we went to go talk to my coach on Wednesday!
It was snowing like crazy during the race so I was happy to not be slipping and sliding trying to go fast… but my friend on the right (Tawny) averaged 5:45 pace for the race! UNREAL.
I think winter is officially here now and that this will be the normal for the next few weeks:
4 mile race + miles before and after the race = 11 miles total.
Lately, whenever I run on the treadmill I catch up on James Corden clips on Youtube which makes treadmill running fun. I watched this one yesterday and it made me laugh so hard.
Brooke did a turkey trot too with her dad. I can’t wait for her cross-country season (aka running while we play a million games each practice;).
SKYE SLEPT IN UNTIL 10 AM. I think that she would do that every morning if it wasn’t for the big kids making noise ha. She loves her sleep but was a little unsure about the snow.
She is getting way too good at hiding.
We had a small dinner with Andrew after he was done with work and is there anything better than rolls? I have my carb depletion coming up (PURELY FOR MY MARATHON TRAINING so that my body will store carbs better for the race) so I am extremely grateful for rolls right now.
Finished off the night with Frozen for the 49858th time:).
I have a feeling we are all going to feel this way today:
PS sorry for the lack of Friday Favorites today but I included all of my favorite things in my gift guide here (but my favorite running/life leggings are on sale today for only $20!!) this week just in case you missed it. Have the best weekend and I have never found a more accurate chart in my life.
Happy almost December:)
