|Sometimes it's hard to run when all I really want to do is snuggle on the couch with these people.|
Thursday: 7.5 miles, 8:35 pace with Jami. Does anyone else besides me and Ashley feel like running in fog is the same as breathing in jello? Seriously.
Friday: Treadmill 5K, 7:14 pace. I don't think I've ever liked the treadmill as much as I did on this day. Probably because I knew I was only going to go 3 miles!
Saturday: 11 miles, 8:31 pace. It was great until mile 7; that's when I regretted eating 3 pieces of french toast, 3 pieces of bacon, and a glass of orange juice only 30 minutes before leaving on my run. Whelp. I won't do that again.
Last week's goal: Run 20 miles. Check! It may not seem like it, but it was pretty hard to get this done this past week. There was LOTS going on. I'm sure you can all relate.
This week's goal: Foam roll every day as well as after every run. I'm feeling some IT Band tightness and I need to do what I know will help me- and that means foam rolling like it's my J-O-B.
And for the year.....
I love garmin connect. LOVE IT. I'm going to attempt to use Daily Mile (be my friend!) this year, but pretty much everything I do is better tracked with my Garmin anyway. I love looking back over my days, weeks, months, and today I was able to look back at last year...

|No, your eyes aren't fooling you. That's nearly 3000 feet in elevation gain in 7 miles. At the beginning of a marathon. Wanna run with me????|
What CRAZY race goal do you have this year?
Besides the 50,000 vertical feet, I want to BQ at the Ogden Marathon in May, and run a 10K with a 6:59 pace or under.
