TGIF. well, for me at least 😛
Tomorrow I am taking a much needed personal day. I have a long run, CrossFit studying and I get to hang with this stud and celebrate his birthday a day early!
We have been communicating via facetime all week while he is out of town but tonight Mr. Roommate comes home. And I can’t wait!
Yesterday I had a day full of kiddos! I had a nice lunch date with kiddo #1. We shared pretzels like true BFF’s.
Between my dates with all the kids I had to come home and run. I had a 30 minute run with some fast progressions thrown in. It’s weird, after a few days of not running hard this run started out great. I was going fast with what felt like little effort. By the end of the run my calves were on FIRE. holy crap. I only ran 30 minutes but when I got home I immediately rocked compression sleeves the rest of the night!
I didn’t have much of an appetite last night, strange I know, so I opted for the healthiest dinner I could think of.
Today I have a 45 minute tempo run planned. Strange since it’s the day before a 2 hour 45 minute long run. I need to follow the coach’s orders though! Tonight I won’t do much. I am strange, and the nights before a long run I tend to just relax at home with lots of water. If I am not in bed by 9 I get anxiety about my run the next day.
Do you have any “night-before-a-long-run” rituals?
ps- go give this girl some words of encouragement. She is injured part way into marathon training but still keeping an awesome attitude!
