Marathon Training Week 14

Happy Thursday.

Kids are finally getting over their cold. It always takes them about 2 weeks to get over a sickness. I’m sure this is from them slobbering all over each other and sharing their drinks. Germs get swapped back and forth. Yuck.

School is intense. I can officially say I am overwhelmed and incredibly busy. One of my projects for the food writing class is to develop and write a blog. I have a few ideas brewing. I was thinking I could start a cake blog. I would post all of my cakes on the new site and this blog would focus on running and nutrition. I have a few other ideas that I will share once I have them worked out.

So much to do

Running this past week went well. I was short 4 miles, but made it up with a great hill run and long run.

Monday- Rest

Tuesday- Easy 4 miles on the treadmill in 89 degrees, ugh.

Wednesday- 5 miles with 2 miles at marathon pace. I had planned to run 9 miles with 6 miles at marathon pace, but I ran out of time.

Thursday- Rest

Friday- Hills 8.33 miles. This run was amazing. It was 75 degrees outside and felt great. It is crazy what 5 degree differences does for my running.

Saturday- Easy 3 miles on the treadmill.

Sunday- Long run of 17.5 miles. The first 7.5 miles was a steady incline of 436 ft. I also didn’t listen to any music for the first half of the run. I’m trying to wean myself off music while I run. I don’t want to need music to run. I also want to use music as a motivational tool or for when I’m dying out there. I also took 3 GU and drank about 30 oz of water.

Speaking of GU, look what came in the mail yesterday. I’m excited to try all of the flavors.

I also have two pairs of these bad boys coming in the mail today. Woot, woot. My legs will be so happy.

I have a 20 mile long run planned this Sunday. This will be my first 20 miler, and it’s safe to say I’m nervous. All I want is to complete the run. A girlfriend of mine is planning to run the first 6 miles with me. Yay. I love running with friends. At least the first 6 miles will be fun.

My husband and I share the Apple cloud backup, so that our pictures and calendar sync together. Every so often I will look at our shared photos to see if my husband captured any cute pictures of the kids. This is what I found this morning.
