St. George brings out the runners in them. They were eagerly waiting for me to get home to join me for a mile.
12 miles @ 8:42
Andrew joined me for a bit on his bike too. I am positive that wearing super shoes for all of my runs are helping me to stay injury-free with this high of mileage and this many workouts. It is pricey but so is going into getting an injury fixed (<- How I justify it to Andrew;)
My brother and SIL took us out for the most amazing Mexican food. I’ll dream of this burrito.
Followed by swimming for a few hours.
Some of us were much too cold to swim but got in all of the talking.
Now for some tangents!
*The marathon is 4.5 weeks away and I’m feeling pretty good at that 6:28-6:40 pace on flat roads. I’m surprised about how much I have enjoyed training for a flat marathon. I wish I would have signed up for Chicago this year. I’ve been thinking about my race plan a lot lately and as of right now, I am thinking I want to hold a 6:50ish pace for the first half and then work down if I can or hold onto that 6:50 pace. I’m not sure how my body is going to do in warmer temps and with all of the traveling BUT I think this plan might work for me. The more I plan our trip, the more I realize that we will be go go go and on our feet so I want to be conservative with my race plans and enjoy the race as much as possible.
I do have a feeling I am going to be hooked on international marathons from here on out;)
*He forgets that he just broke is ankle not that long ago.
*Currently listening to for Book Club this month.
*Sun, I’ll see you again in a few weeks.
*These kids want a cat so so bad.
*This is just phenomenal! I can’t wait to see what she does in the marathon.
Have any tangents today??
