I felt a little emotional that it was our last workout of the training block! A few of our friends are going in different directions after this marathon, and I want us to keep training together forever. Feeling two emotions at once has become my specialty… missing training already but also so excited for some time off, ha.
I cannot wait to see what everyone does on Saturday.
I’m sure they will miss me making sure they start refueling the second we finish the workout.
I brought out my race shoes for this short workout. While I was pretty sure I could get away with saving them completely for race day, I didn’t want to realize during the marathon that there was something wrong with them!
They are ready to go.
Seven miles @ 7:45 average with 2 miles a little faster than marathon pace (my goal marathon pace is 6:15) + 4 x 30-second strides with the happiest hamstrings (THEY TURNED A CORNER)!
The featured carbohydrate for yesterday was this churro bread that my friend brought over.
The rest of the day was spent celebrating Knox! He and Andrew went to in-n-out for lunch; we took treats to his class and then played with his new toys for the rest of the day.
Four more things before I say goodbye for today…
I’ve been rereading Meb’s book about the lessons he learned from his 26 Marathons. This is another must-read, in my opinion! I’m going to be so patient on Saturday.
Good news… the temperatures have dropped a few degrees for Saturday! EVERY degree counts, ha.
What is your run or workout today?!
Is anyone feeling two very different emotions about the same thing lately?
What shoes did you wear for your last race?
What temperature is your absolute favorite for racing?
