Morning Runner Girl’s 100th post is coming up this week!! Stay tuned 🙂
I just want to point out that I was not trying to be all cute with “Tuesday” and things that start with “T”… it just happened that way. No really, I promise!
Here we go:
Saturday was my last “big” run! I did 10 miles…. and I did not mean to tempo it, but it just sort of happened. I didn’t look at my watch the entire run so I had no idea what my pace was. I just ran by feel. I felt light and strong! Getting in some quick turnover was great for my legs and has me so so SO excited for Richmond!
With that said, I have received wonderful advice from you all regarding tapering. I am being so super duper careful and really taking it easy. In fact, I may be tapering “too” much. But I am 100% ok with this, because I am so excited over how I am healthy! I am making it to the start line with my body in one piece and a smile on my face! I feel very blessed for this… it is so easy to get injured throughout the looooong training process.
No matter how I do in Richmond, I am thankful that I am not at all burnt out on running (which I ABSOLUTELY WAS for my first marathon) and I am not injured. To me, I am already a winner!
My weather on my phone has all the key cities that I am constantly checking up on.
- Bloomington–Where I go to school, south of Indianapolis….
- Richmond— Whoohoo!! 4 days!
- Denver— Ya… I just love looking at my phone and seeing “Denver” 🙂
- New York— Where my sister lives ((gotta make sure she is stayin’ safe!))
- Chicago— I have been there so frequently for races this season…
- San Juan— Where I will be catching a cruise ship from December 27 🙂
The weather for Richmond is lookin just fine! I do pretty well in the cold (actually, the heat too…) so regardless, as long as it is not raining with a windstorm in freezing temps, I am happy!
You guys know I am a Coffee Girl. A very serious coffee girl… I drink lots and lots and lots. All Black, and all different flavors. But, interestingly enough (or not ha) I also love tea!! Anyone ever been to Teavana? It is purely a tea store where they must create 100 tea flavors. It is gorgeous inside and the best smelling place you will walk into. I went to Teavana for the first time last weekend and walked out with 2 ounces of White Chocolate Peppermint for 10$ Yes… it was expensive… but Hey, When in Rome, right?! (or something like that…) This tea is AMAZING! Totally worth the price! I wish I could transfer the smell via the internet…
Please checkout this store and buy something online… they have it divided into naturally caffeine free, caffeinated, and decaffeinated. And in each of those categories there are about 50 choices of Roobios, Herbal, Black, Green, Oolong, etc. Check it out!
That is all from me! I have another exam today I am, again, ill prepared for due to a very fun-filled weekend! So fingers crossed on this one!
Have a Terrific Tuesday (yes, that one I was being
Favorite Tea OR Coffee?!
