Most weeks lately feel like they will never end...
Weekends go by so quick!
Friends I haven't seen in about three years popped into town and I spent a really fun Thursday evening with them.

4 mile progression run 37:17
10K ( it was an overcast day) I feel so much better when it's not super sunny.
|If I can't pull this off for the 10K it's going to make me sad|
I had lots of rest days this week so I expected my Saturday work out to kick butt. You know how you have some days that are amazing...
...and some where you need a reset button.
|Saturday treadmill run|
My Saturday treadmill run was a rough four miles. I ran a 9:22 pace for most of it. I did end going up to 8:40 about the last half mile, but I felt like I was hanging on for dear life.
That's one thing I will never get, sometimes after rest days I feel like a superhero and sometimes I can't hardly sustain my pace. I did get a good 45 minutes of strength training in, which always makes me feel better.
I hope this means tomorrow I will have a great run. I am only planning about an hour. Run buddy told me I better taper this week and be well rested so we can cruise next Saturday...we'll see!
Going to try to eat healthy and drink lots of water this week...does my favorite snack count as healthy?
|Dark chocolate on a strawberry...these are a few of my favorite things :)|
What's your favorite snack?
Do you ever think you feel fine then struggle in your work out? That's the one factor of races that worries me. I trained, I can make good choices in my diet and get enough rest, and still just have an off day :/ Trying to not think about that!
Have a great week :) Send speedy vibes my way! If this upcoming week is like last week I may not blog again until after the race.
