Hey hey, hope you guys had a great weekend! I really wish that I could have ONE more day to enjoy over the weekend because it always goes too fast. This weekend was pretty low-key with a focus on training (more details on that) and football of course!
I don’t know if you guys tuned in to the Packers game yesterday, but I was a stress case.
I am in Michigan for work and missed pretty much the first half because I was en route and there was no wifi on the plane (what decade is this, seriously). Finally we sat down at this super cool restaurant called HopCat and I was able to watch the game… with a lot of Lions turned Cowboys fans.
Luckily we were able to pull it off but I may have lost a few years on my life. I really hope that we can beat Atlanta and head to the Super Bowl.
Side note, super funny — I was talking to one of my coworkers from England who was asking me why it matters so much, and I really didn’t know how to put into words? Because in the grand scheme of things, it really doesn’t matter… especially when you’re looking at it from an international level. It’s a team, winning a game, but I think it’s a source of pride for my state and the team I cheer for.
That being said —> wondering about what matters, let’s talk about Boston Marathon training, week 3!
I am starting to feel like training is coming together, but honestly, I’m still struggling on the nutrition front.
Why in the world is this so hard!?
You eat food, the end.
But basically, I just can’t figure out the right balance for what makes sense for my body.
Some nights, I’m just not that hungry so I don’t eat much (cottage cheese + orange FTW) and I wake up in the morning, not that hungry, but once I start running, I am STARVING.
Work in progress (any ideas, let me know!).
And, a recap of last week below:
Su: Rest day, but did some weights (go me!)
Mo: 8 miles with 10 x 100m stride outs
Tu: 5 miles easy / strength workout
We: 10 miles (treadmill)
Th: Rest day
Fr: 4 miles easy (treadmill) / strength workout
Sa: 15 miles long run
Total miles: 42 miles
Usually I hit this high mileage later in training, so yay for knocking it out in week 3! I did less miles on the treadmill (yay, brain is much happier) but also stuck to my strength workout training goal which was a major win. So let’s just say the word of the week was “yay” for life. 😉
Why do you think our sports team winning matters?
What did your workouts look like last week?
Any thoughts on nutrition? I need your help! 🙂
