As I discussed earlier in the week, marathon training is in the forefront of my mind again. And with training comes my most/least favorite thing... routine. I love making plans! At the beginning of the week I try and write down the meal/workout/to-do list plan for Nick and me for the week. But then, sometimes I feel like the "Run" listed for Tuesday and Thursday just hangs over my head... I guess I love having a plan, but I hate actually executing it? The funny thing is, I didn't really want to run yesterday, but I know if something else had gotten in the way of running, I would have been beyond irritated. I'm silly like that.
Speaking of running- yesterday's run was a bit of a surprise. I did a four mile out and back that Nick and I have done several times. This is the one that includes an enormous downhill from mile 1.75-2, and therefore an enormous uphill from mile 2-2.25. Blech. My mile times were:
7:50 (huge downhill, but still warms my heart)
8:27 (legs tired)
8:00 for the last 0.4
