I’m entering that stage in marathon training, where it is getting harder to get out the door. The mileage and workout fatigue are accumulating, but that is exactly how I should feel now at this point in training.
10.1 miles @ 8:21 average.
I am excited for the day that I don’t come home with lines all over my forehead from my headbands.
I’m positive there will never be a point in my life where I play more board games than I do now. I need to start gambling on Skye’s games because she is a guaranteed win.
We went to the library with Skye and Beck’s best friends.
My mom came over to read with Skye, and somehow she knew that I needed brownies and brought them over. Moms always know.
This ziti recipe was so easy to make and tasted delicious. I subbed cottage cheese for ricotta because we were out of that.
Emilee dropped this off for me to use for some R&R with all of this training. It felt so good.
A special congratulations to Utahns that enjoy doing speed workouts on Wednesdays because the roads are actually going to be clear.
PS can I tell you a sweet story (I don’t think I’ve shared this story here…) to go along with this picture I shared of my grandpa. My grandpa lived in Eagle, Colorado in the 40’s. He qualified to run in the State Meet in Denver. When he and his dad got there, they found out they had to have track shoes to compete. My great-grandpa found a pawn shop and pawned his pocket watch so he could buy my grandpa track shoes for the meet. My grandpa won and was the state champion… him finally having track shoes made him fly faster than ever.
And his six-pack was from throwing 50 lb bags of potatoes onto railroad flat cars all day. The high school boys had to go to school at night to work the ranches because the men were at war!
I’m unsure how Boston is coming up so quickly, but it is just 5.8 weeks away. My biggest goal is to finish with a time of 2:4X:XX (I’m thinking 2:49, but then my coach sent me a 2:45 pace chart, too ahhhh), but I have another goal–> I want to finish in the top 100 females this year! Last year I was 116th, and I’m excited to see what happens this year. PS if you haven’t noticed, I am obsessed with making goals…
Do you share your goals or keep them more private?
-I wrote a newspaper each week to deliver to my neighbors when I was 7-9 years old. I would tell them everything about me and my family’s life in that newspaper… oversharing is who I am.
Brownie or cookie?
-Brownie. Always brownie.
Anyone live in Colorado? What part?
-We are going to Glenwood Springs this summer.
Anyone else doing speed today? What about this week?
