When I'm driving home on a Friday after work I feel such a sense of relaxation just waft over me. I LOVE weekends! I know, who doesn't? ;) My coworkers who still are getting to know me even told me to 'Get some rest and don't do any racing this weekend.' LOL. Too funny! FYI: I am NOT racing this weekend. Instead I am nursing my anticipated post-marathon cold. Yup. :S
Check out my finishing photo from the Valley Harvest!
|Don't you just love the braid flying in the air? LOL.|
If I figure out a way to give you a clearer picture I will! Until then, my elevation is in the green and the pace is in blue. :) Happy
running mountain climbing. ;)
Of course I had to analyze my erratic splits as well...lol.
Mile 20: "Hello massive hill."
Mile 21: "Ahhh, feet are on FIRE!"
Mile 22: Hitting the wall like a champ. Even walked with my hands on my hips, ruffled up my eyebrows and moaned like a real big baby, LOL.
Mile 23: "Well there's only 5 k to go....I might as well just keep going. Forget about your fire breathing feet! Real runners run through the pain! Yeah well, REAL runners are crazy then!"
Mile 24: "Oh my god, I'm almost done and my time doesn't completely suck!"
Mile 25: "Anyone can run one mile. One mile is only from my house to the convenience store. That's nothing. I can do this. Oh my goodness I'm going to puke. Just one mile. Get your ass in gear!"
Mile 26: "Why can't I see the University??!?!?!?!? The Course IS long! I knew it!" :S
Last 0.6 Mile: "Go go go go go go go go go.....OMG I can have water real soon!!!!!"
Recovery food....Sort of
I bought these a few days before the marathon with the full intention of baking them as soon as my race was over. They only lasted a day between Matt and I!
I treated myself to this on Monday, but didn't finish it since it wasn't what I thought it would be.
So then I made these and they really hit the spot!
|I think I need sugar rehab.|
If you follow me on Instagram you probably already saw that Lola photo bombed my sunflower picture...lol.
Our Thanksgiving dinner was just what I needed! mmm
This made me giggle nervously since I was battling a similar issue before the marathon....
|Thank goodness I saw this a couple of days AFTER my marathon!|
|In true runner fashion I'm hitting the Garmin with a smile at the finish. Every second counts! ;)|
|How true is this?! LOL|
