I started the run feeling as optimistic and energetic as possible, and I finished feeling like I had been hit by a food truck;)
The hm pace miles were–> 5:49, 5:48, 5:48, 5:52, 5:49, 5:54, 5:47 & the floats ranged from 6:48-7:30. We finished and did a 2 mile c/d for a total of 18 miles @ 6:58 pace.
I had a Maurten 320 drink and 2 graham crackers on the drive and then a gel at miles 3 and 9.
This is where our half marathon starts on Saturday, so it was good to see the course before we race it. It is a net downhill course, but I always underestimate the rolling hills starting at mile 5ish. A dress rehearsal on the course helped me with my pacing plans for Saturday. I will not fly and die; I will not fly and die, I will not fly and die;)
Family came into town on Saturday, so we spent time at a trampoline park to tire out the kids.
We went to church.
And also went into Provo Canyon!
I hit 75 miles last week and this week I’ll run 50 miles, including the race on Saturday!
Any highlights from your weekend?
Tell me your goal for your next race… I swear, the more we put it out in the universe, the more likely it will happen!What has been the WORST in your opinion gel/workout fuel/protein bar etc that you have ever tried?
Naps make you feel better or worse than before you took the nap?-I strongly feel like they make me feel better and Brooke strongly feels like they make her feel worse.
