I couldn’t resist going out with Emilee for a 2 mile run yesterday at an 8:47 pace.
I’ve pulled out my Boston 2019 glasses for training the next few weeks to build even more excitement.
I did my normal pre-race things like my recovery boots..
And chocolate chip pancakes…
I don’t normally go out the night before a race but I just couldn’t miss Cookbook Club. Each month a member hosts the group and chooses a cookbook for everyone to cook from and eat together. The host prepares the main dish and everyone else brings apps, breads, salads, and desserts. I try to eat extremely simple foods the day before a race but the spread was just too good.
This month’s cookbook was from Our Best Bites! I’ve had and loved this cookbook for years!
PS Andrew received his Century club shirt from Peloton for completing 100 rides!
PPS 20 degrees= shorts racing weather IMO wahoo! Off to go explore Antelope Island again.
I have four favorite things this week to share!
*If you want to watch a thriller, you have to watch The Weekend Away. I don’t like scary movies but I love an intense movie every now and then and I couldn’t blink with this one…
*I feel like I need to keep you updated with my search for the perfect jelly beans (I still haven’t been able to find the Sweet Tart variety). The Starburst addition of the minis to the jelly bean bags was brilliant. Please try them asap. If you like a little sour in your jelly bean then I also think you need to try the SPK variety.
*With each year of life, my nighttime routine gets longer and longer. I love rituals and my nighttime ones are my favorite. I started drinking perk chill at night and it is delicious. It includes protein, collagen and it has zero sugar added. It includes ‘the Power sleep mineral complex to enhance recovery and repair, and glycine to aid in relaxation and sleep quality.’ Maybe it’s the placebo effect, maybe it’s not but either way, I am happy because I really love how my sleep quality has improved.
What are you looking forward to this weekend?!
Tell me about your nighttime routine?
Does 20°F equal running shorts for a race weather in your opinion?
Tell me something new you have tried in your life lately?!
