This week my training has been all over the place. I have done runs in California and Massachusetts, run outside in the snow and on my family’s treadmill, gotten up to run early in the morning and waited until after eating junk for breakfast to do a workout. Needless to say, you can tell this is a holiday/vacation week.
I’m not stressing about it because I have one more week before I start seriously training for Boston and it is nice to have a relaxed week during the holidays. However, I don’t think I’m ever going to eat this before a run again in my life…
I have really been enjoying running in the chilly weather at home. There were even snowflakes on my watch at the end of my run on Thursday!
I ran the first half on the Boston Marathon course yesterday for my long run and even though I’ve run that part of the course in the past it will be nice to have it fresher in my mind come April. Its easy to forget how hilly the route is! I tried out my new Lululemon jacket, compression socks, and Camelbak Dart on the trek to Wellesley and my conclusion is that I LOVE THEM ALL!
We spent half of the day yesterday at my sister’s indoor track meet. She came in 5th in the 1000m and anchored the 4x800m to a first place finish! What a stud!
Henri loves watching indoor track!!
