I have the Huntsville Marathon this Saturday!
I am excited about this marathon. I feel ready! Maaaaybe a little injured. (Plantar Fasciitis)
but overall, I trust my training.
Honestly, I didn’t do a 20 mile run. I had one on the schedule but did Big Cottonwood Canyon Half Marathon that weekend instead.. I also split the majority of my long runs into two runs each day just because of that crazy thing we call life.
But then again, I have never done a 20+ mile run in training before..
I’m ready to run though.
It will be beautiful. Downhill. & I’ll probably lose a toenail.
Totally worth it.
SIDENOTE: This race isn’t full yet so if you need a race soon.. REGISTER!
There is a Full—> Party with me…. Half Marathon, 10 k and 5k!!
My friend Kenzie found these awesome race pace bands! This is a Utah based company, they create the pace bands coordinated to the race course you are doing!
Click on pace bands and from there, select your race and your goal time!
I love this and can’t wait to try it. No matter the distance of every run I think of it as two runs. For example, if I have a 5 mile run. I tell myself I have two 2.5 mile runs.
When I do a Marathon, I take it ONE mile at a time. If I have a goal pace for each mile it will help to focus on that mile and not the 9,382 more there is left.
Works for me.
I’m hoping for a perfect day.
Today I had a two mile run at 70%. I over shot a little bit.. 2.37 but whateve.
PS. Taper is awesome.
After my run, I ran errands- forgot about teaching a boot camp class.. seriously, completely spaced it! I’m losing it y’all…. Picked up the twinners from pre-school and headed home for lunch.
It was kind of an emotional weekend due to a family accident and I just don’t know where
I haven’t been posting recipes lately..
I have figured out my nutrition and its simple.
But it works for me. I have been craving something yummy soon, so I’'ll be coming up with something snazzy for ya!
Sometimes (more like always) for lunch I make my whole meal in the same pan.
Hate dishes? This works just fine!
Mahi Mahi plus yellow squash and asparagus!
Hot and steamy = awesome pictures.
Loving all the squashes coming out the garden lately! (NOT my garden. It would for sure die.. but my friends are awesome.)
And just because I love this little golf man.
Ladies, here is some eye candy.
Do you run with a pace band?
Marathoners how many 20 + runs do you do?
What is your favorite meal?
