Who is tired from marathon training? I am! I feel like I can't get enough sleep. I know I am not exhausted because I have tons of energy for daily activities and my training runs, but getting up in the morning sucks! I think I might not be eating something? I'm planning to make an appointment with one of the university's dietitians so I can make sure I am fueling properly.
Yesterday I had another awesome run. I had a library book to return and a book to pick up. I decided to make it and errand run! I ran from Shadyside to Oakland and back. It was about 3.6 miles which took me 37ish minutes. I ran around the block where I park to round out my 50 minute run. I completed 4.92 miles. It was kind of hot out but not unbearable like it has been for all of the summer.
Tonight, Matt and I went to the local track so I could do another speed workout. 10 minute warm up, 2 minutes hard, 2 minutes easy x6, 10 minute cool down. I did 4.1 miles. I thought it was going to be a crappy run because Matt and I had a miscommunication about when we were going so I chowed down on a bunch of honey wheat pretzels about 2 minutes before we left. Surprisingly it was a fun run. Speedy runs always go by really fast.
I'm off to eat some split pea soup and then going to bed!
I was looking through our honeymoon pictures today. This is one of my favorites.
