Hi there! It’s a rainy dreary morning around these parts but I still managed to get my workout in. 1 hour of teaching spin with the crew. We did lots of speedy sprints and jumped on plenty of hills. Feels good to get it in on a Monday.
Hope your weekend was wonderful! The weather around here cooled off just a bit…just in time for my 23 mile run on Saturday. Temps were in the 60s for most of the run so that made for a good time. I honestly felt like I could keep going on this run and never really hit a wall which was awesome. I took in 3 salted caramel energy gels and some gatorade. This was probably the longest training run I’ve ever done in the 5 years that I’ve been running marathons. I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it…riding solo. And that I did.
Now it is time to taper and scale those miles back to get ready for my race! Less than 3 weeks away from my 11th full marathon.
After the run the remainder of the weekend was fairly low key. My friend and blogging buddy Sharde came to town with her gorgeous baby London. We had brunch at Pop Diner with bottomless mimosas. So delicious! Cheers to Sharde!
I got to hold her doll baby and almost stole her away. Clearly she loves me and thinks I’m hilarious.
The mimosas sapped some of my energy and I was basically useless the rest of the day–which was a good thing in itself because it forced me to rest (because I don’t know how to sit still otherwise.)
Sunday…wow what did I even do on Sunday? Oh yeah…I took a selfie. Actually I had a sushi date so I had to get all cute. I wore a scarf even though it was about 90 degrees out. And I went to get my nails done.
Then I ended the day only the best way I know how. With frozen yogurt. My 23 mile run treat.
Oh and before I go…I also did a little race shopping and rewarded myself with this registration. Guess who will be an ULTRA MARATHONER in 2015?! Hello! Bring it on February. 31 miles to kick off my 31st birthday and 31 years of being on this earth.
What did you do over the weekend?
