Woo to the hoo! Another week of Chicago Marathon training! About 300 miles in so far – ya know, that’s the part that nobody ever sees – the miles that you put in just to be able to run 26.2 on race day. But there we are, each morning before the sun comes up. Running empty streets and trails. We do get little rewards though…Like seeing shooting stars and sunrises!
Most days I get done before da sun, but if I time it right, I can just catch the big star as it climbs the horizon.
Longer runs the sun will come up along the way. Makes for a nice view…until it decides to start cooking your body. Texas is hot, y’all.
We got another reward this week when our training plan called for the shortest run in a couple months – 3.3 miles of intervals. Decided to visit old friend, Mr. Stripey Oval.
But it was a short reward, as we’re now back to more miles. This weekend’s long run is 18 big ones. Should be…fun?
Either way, I know I’ll reward myself with more TACOS! Just watch out for the spicy ones!!!!
Luckily there’s guac around to calm the heat down. I really do want to eat ALL the guac.
Oh, and yoga. Yes, it can be tough, but it’s also a reward, right? Ohmmmmmmmmmm.
There ya go, another quick update. See ya on the streetz…or the internetz!
How bout you? Morning or Night runner? Are you gonna eat your guac, or can I have it? What should I name those horses?
