Crazy how last month I was doing the above…
And then, this last week, I was too tired to even think about driving 26.2 miles. Whenever I am sick, I am always reminded how grateful I am for health and the energy to do the things we love to do. I’m telling myself that the time off is just what I needed before Boston training starts soon.
This came in the mail. My neighbor always makes us The Food Nanny’s bread, so I finally bought everything we needed to make it ourselves.
This was delicious.
So was this…
And some homemade chicken noodle soup was healing.
I had a lot of time in the hot tub.
Luckily, Andrew didn’t have to work while I was sick… I don’t know how I would have cared for everyone if he had to work the whole time.
Sunday, I was feeling a lot more like myself! Stay healthy everyone; whatever is going around right now is nuts!
PS Andrew wanted me to tell any of you that use the Peloton to try this class:
I love thinking about an upcoming theme for my running each year. I’m not quite sure what all of my time and race goals are quite yet (I mean, a 2:4X at Boston would be a DREAM and something that excites me but other than that, I’m not quite sure yet)… but I do know something I want to work on:
This next year I want to be better at suffering and growing. I want to look at both of those things as positives. I want to be able to go into those pain caves and hang out there for longer. I want to welcome the suffering because I know it will bring growth. Suffering will always happen to get to our goals, and I want to get better at it:). The best runners I know are really good at suffering!
Another goal this year is to do a random, extremely difficult race like this one in Telluride that a reader told me about. I’m not sure if we will be able to make it to this one yet (cross your fingers for me… also, trying to get Andrew to do it with me:) but I want to do something crazy hard like this (over 5k ft of climbing at this race) and so different than anything I’ve ever done:
Have any 2023 running goals yet? What about a theme for your running that you want to focus on?
Plan on trying any ‘new to you’ races next year?
What was the best part of your weekend?
Does anyone ever use the Food Nanny’s recipes? If you make homemade bread, what recipe do you use?
