Last big workout… done! As far as speed goes, we have a 5k time trial and an interval workout of 3 x 2 minutes on/2 minutes off + 3 x 1 minute on/1 minute off left.
I am so excited to do this race with Lauren! The goal is to stick together for all 26.4 miles (I’m just counting on it being longer because I don’t run the tangents super well in Boston), but if one of us needs to go ahead, the other will cheer them on.
14.7 miles @ 7:18 average pace with 7 x 1 mile (part flat, mostly downhill) @ 5:44 average, w/ .7 mile recoveries back up to the start. My friend giving us workouts told us to do these intervals at a pace where we wouldn’t need to put our hands on our knees to recover or stop at the end of each one. This pace felt pretty great for us, which was exciting because a few months ago, this was my all-out pace for just a few of them. Runners love progress.
Last random fact about the morning—> I started eating my bagel with the lights off inside my house, and when I jumped in my car, I saw that my bagel was moldy because the light was on. It took me some time to get over that situation. Thankfully I had a few gels to give me some energy.
I wore my Carbon Hokas for the workout, but now after trying out the Nikes, the Hokas feel great and comfortable but not like speed shoes to me anymore. I will be racing in these Nikes forever now. I ordered another pair to have a fresh new pair for race day, and they are just so beautiful.
Beck brings us his shoes to let us know that he is ready to get out of the house and adventure.
I rotate through a few things after a workout, but this protein drink is always one of my favorites.
We took the kids to the aquarium, and it was a huge hit.
They also had a clouded leopard there, which was Brooke’s favorite… She would learn all day about big cats if she could.
We came home and had lunch while Beck napped, and then we went out to the girls’ #1 choice for dinner (trying to make spring break feel extra fun at home this year:):
Every meal should end with these:
Mary asked this question yesterday if anyone could help her out!
Expiration dates with your food… follow them or not so much?
What have you been using for fuel right after you finish a workout?
