This week has been my WEEK OFF!! Yes, I have not a run a single mile and have enjoyed EVERY SECOND OF IT!!...especially since we’ve had some freak show weather…..FREEZING COLD and snow and WAY TOO MUCH rain….blah!
STRESS+RECOVERY= PROGRESS (SPEED).
It’s true. It works. Give yourself a break after each training cycle so your body can absorb what you’ve done.
If you’ve raced a marathon Hard he makes us take 2weeks.
Anyway….This weekend was my last weekend before I start MARATHON TRAINING!! WOOHOOO….
And I made sure to end it on a bang;) and eats LOTS OF DELICIOUS FOOD!
Steve and I went away WITHOUT KIDS overnight for our anniversary. (pics below). I did write a whole bunch about it in my last post but am too lazy..so I will just put captions under the pictures to explain our wonderful date away.
I am so excited to start my training…only 2.5 months til the WINDERMERE MARATHON!!
Oh…speaking of which…last year the top 3 female finishers had times between 3:04 and 3:20..think I could make TOP 3?? Wouldn’t that be AWESOME???!!!
Grilled Cheese Grill.....
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Grilled Cheese sandwiches...one of my FAVORITE
foods by far.
I had DILL PICKLES and onion...oh my word. HEAVEN.
We checked into the hotel and got ready for Dinner and a movie:)
Okay..so before the movie...we went shopping...we walked into Banana Republic
and the lady hands us one of those coupon things where usually you get no more than 10% off...
but we hit the JACKPOT and got 50% of our ENTIRE PURCHASE! so we loaded up! it was SO fun to shop without kids...oh my gosh, what a blessed experience! $500 later (that is AFTER the 50% discount) we walked out with 3 FULL bages of new clothes:):):) a womens dream. I LOVE to shop! so here's me in my new shirt and new belt:)
Isn't he cute?:)
AT Jakes Bar and Grill eating the most delicious pot roast!
Afterward we went and saw "The Kings Speech"...you must see, a great movie!!!
we finished the night with starbucks hot chocolate, a walk downtown and a 10 hours of UNINTERRUPTED sleep!
what a way to finish my week off:)
