When someone gives you donuts during your Monday morning run, you know it will be a good day. 8 miles @ 8:34 average.
Breakfast burritos made an appearance in the morning too.
Let’s get chatting about tangents:
*The mileage may be dropping in the taper, but the calories do not (in my opinion)—so many PB & j sandwiches every day. Lauren and I felt like we had put on a lb or 2 or 3 during our taper before Boston, and that PAID off on race day because we had the energy to fly.
*Wore my friend’s new Garmin 955, which is as light as possible. It is a touchscreen but also has buttons and all extras. If you want a light watch, this one is way lighter than the Fenix 6s Pro that I have.
*I’m not going to walk on gravel in my Nikes… I save every step for speed miles;).
*My Halloween costume arrived. My kids love to see these things outside of stores, so I decided I would dress up as one.
*My St. George splits from 2019… my goal is to run each of these miles 12 seconds faster. It’s a downhill course, but some challenging miles are thrown in there too.
Are you going to dress up for Halloween this year?
Best holiday in your opinion?
I would love to hear any stories about a big jump in your PR… I’m asking for a 5-minute course PR in 11 days!
