Friday workout: rest, oh yeah and like 4 hours of power walking, that counts right?
Saturday workout: was a scheduled rest, started out thinking I was going to do 7, ended up doing 4. Not feeling too hot + strength training
Today was a scheduled rest day with a plan for a hard effort mock half marathon tomorrow. Since apparently I don’t give an eff about training plans I decided to shoot for 7 today and 15 tomorrow…
That whole 7 mile plan died pretty quick. I don’t know if it was because I spent a lot of time on my feet yesterday, didn’t eat/drink enough or what, but I was feeling sick and walked the last mile+ home.
I stopped in Encinitas along the way to give Drama-Mamma her wedding present, WAY overdue!
Pizza Port introduced me to what may be my new favorite beer, Carlsbad Cream. Delish.
I wasn’t sure I was going to eat because of my “not feeling goodness”, but SR ordered veggie pizza with artichokes which is my fav and I couldn’t say no after one beer had me too buzzed to drive. Thanks SR, my clean driving record appreciates it!
I was a little nervous to both meet so many women whom I admire as athletes but also to just jump in and meet a bunch of new people in general. I’m still getting my bearings in SoCal and haven’t quite made it home yet, so it was really amazing to meet a bunch of women who love running as much as me and don’t get tired of talking about ways to not chafe, run on no sleep, sneak a race into a vaycay with your bf/gf etc. All in all I can’t wait for our next meet up or the actual race!
Traffic on the way home was a pain in the ass, but HauteRunningMama sent us off with goodie bags so I had some sweettarts to ease the pain of sitting in my car for an hour.
I brought P-Love a pizza for dinner because I am an amazing GF.
15 miles to my favorite Mexican food tomorrow. It’s all worth it. Plans to make sure tomorrow is an amazing run:
Shuffle full of sweet beats, Clif shotbloks, Balance Bar for brekkie.
I ate a bit more than normal today, but I was hungrier so that’s how that goes… My plan is to wake up, grab a cup of coffee and head to the air show with P. We will probably run around 3pm and hit the road shortly after. I’ll need 1 solid meal in me pre-run so I will likely be packing that lunch unless funnel cake is the optimum pre run fuel. *fingers crossed*
