Ok so last week was a cutback week for me. There were a couple reasons. One, if I run 40-50 mile weeks for ever I die. Two: I had to go get my foot hacked up. Three: Lazy
(mostly kidding about 3)
I had a couple of workouts scheduled for early in the week.
I got off to a craptastic start and felt just as lousy as I had the week before. Yuck. Again, there was nothing wrong with me I just felt flat and blah.
I took Tuesday off as a mental health day and maybe a physical health day.
|Mental health day demands quality beer.|
week a rotten workout doesn't bother me, however I never sad to have a good one!
|This is my "good workout" face. Wow.|
|The gross foot pic. It got even grosser but I'll spare you.|
I was a hot mess. I didn't really have a fun day. My mom made me cookies which made things better.
Luckily, on Saturday I was well on my way to normal again.
I hit the treadmill for my long run armed with my ipad to enjoy the Olympic marathon trials.
|Nice cool day over there.|
The teamwork between Shalane and Amy was really inspiring (although at the end I was yelling at Amy "LEAVE HER LEAVE HER!!!!!" which is why I don't have any friends....)
|"LEAVE HER AMY, APOLOGIZE LATER!!!!!"|
Post run, in honor of the drinks my creative Crow friends named after the top runners I enjoyed a "Desi" in the comfort of my own home. Desi is beast. I want to be her when I grow up.
|The "Desi" was bourbon. That's all. Just my style.|
Oh! The best thing about Saturday was being able to watch the marathon and then switch live feeds and watch the Grand Prix Special live from Global. I was totally geeking out from excitement. (yeah, I watch live action from Global pretty much weekly but this week was a big deal.)
Of course, after seeing Laura Graves NAIL it I got even MORE excited for Rio.
|#fangirl Sorry Desi, I actually want to be like Laura when I grow up!!!|
|Such a great time!!|
