Well, it’s Monday

And so far the best thing I have to say about it is that Monday only comes once a week.  I am stressed up to my eyeballs right now and yesterday I dealt with it by eating ALL of the things.  I was making a box of goodies to mail to my hubby and I “tasted” each and every item that went in it.  Restraint was shown in certain areas so that there would still be food to mail, but wow I fell of the healthy eating bandwagon in a big way (I also ate a semi-unregulated treat meal for dinner on Friday – terrible idea before a long run).

I am happy to say that my running didn’t suffer as a result of my crazed carb and fat consumption (chocolate chip cookies, cake balls with french buttercream filling, Reese’s pieces Chex muddy buddies).  I ran my 11 miles Saturday morning as a 3:1 finishing strong with an 8:17, 8:04, & 7:35.  I did a reasonable amount of climbing during the run and had an overall pace of 8:52.  My recovery run yesterday hurt a little more but I still managed an overall 8:04.

I’ve got 3 weeks of training left to get down to PR pace for this half.  It’s going to be close!

Be Proud.

  2. Get it girl! I fell off the bandwagon in a major way one day the week before my race and I totes feel your pain. You kicked ass on your runs though! Keep up the good work 🙂 Those Reese’s will fuel your last few miles 😉
