Would you take a look at my plan for the next 5 weeks of long runs and see what you think?
My main thing is the 20- should it be 2 weeks out or 3? I usually do 12: 2 weeks out and 8 : 1 week out.
March 15: 14 miles
March 22: 16 miles
March 29: 10 mile race + add on to do 18? 16?
April 5: 20 (or do 18?) 12?
April 12: 8 miles
April 20: Marathon
I don’t know if I’ll really do a 20 miler. Maybe 18.
My goal: to finish and have fun. No real time/pace goals, but I do hope to finish under 5 hours. But mainly, I want to enjoy it and take in the experience. Hopefully see family along the way! And hopefully find lots of people to hop in and run with me.
I was thinking of doing a 1/2 race this weekend but I’m kind of thinking I might get nervous thinking about doing the other half in 6 weeks. It is a tough course. Hmm…
I tried the LUNA macadamia flavor today – YUMMMMMIEEEE in my tummy!!
smoothie mania – well, inspired by Amanda over at Run to Finish, this is my 3rd day of smoothies.
Today I tried spinach in it. It stayed purple. I think I added 1/4 to 1/2 cup of fresh leaves, so not too much. I used:
blackberries – 1/2 c
blueberries – 1/2 c
1/2 a banana
Aria Protein Powder
Topped w/ whip cream and that is good stuff!
