Friday, the girls I have been running with had a little get together. We ate tacos, talked about races and laughed a lot! Also, for whatever reason, I took NO PICTURES!! Seriously, great blogger over here! Group gathering and not one photo to had. Whoops! 🙂 But I can assure you, if you think about a group of women sitting around a table laughing, that was us! I think I am going to have a very fun, very full, racing calendar this year!!
Saturday I ran on the ‘mill again. Although it was torturous I did it and it felt good. I only used .5 incline as I don’t want to get used to always being on 1. Total was 7 miles….thank goodness for Netflix. I discovered Gilmore Girls….not bad. I almost made it through 2 episodes before finishing my run! It was very distracting!
|10:52/mi total 7 miles…right on target!
I also discovered these….they are incredible. Try them!
|Huge and super yummy! My kids did good!
I also had these! Got to love having kids!
|Green is my favorite!!
Overall my week of marathon training went well! I switched 2 days around but was within a half mile of my mileage so its going according to plan and my body is feeling good. I really think having a day dedicated to foam rolling is awesome!! Plus, only running 4 days a week and using the other days to work on my body is nice. I am running well yet not hurting due to overuse!!

Tonight before my run I am going to attend my first spin class. Super excited about it and hope I get to run on tired legs tonight. It always makes me feel a little stronger when I get to do that!!
How many times a week do you foam roll? I usually do about every other day.
What race are you training for right now? Rock and Roll Nashville for me!
