That’s it guys — it’s THE week 🙂
The Saint Louis RnR Marathon and 1/2 marathon are this weekend, October 27.
After a crazy Summer, including another half marathon and getting married, I am READY to wrap up this training season with a beautiful race through Saint Louis, Missouri, where I grew up.
My family and I were checking out the course map yesterday and it seems nice. I’m definitely starting to get that anxious, butterflies in the stomach feeling, but overall I know I trained hard this season and all I really want to do is leave EVERYTHING out there on that course.
You all saw the pictures from yesterday. Sunday in our house was a nice, relaxing day of board games, football, and pizza.
Zach is currently at the air port ready to head out on his second of three business trips, New York City. The trips just keep getting better for this guy, as the next one is London and Geneva. Not.too.shabby.
He’s there until Wednesday this week, so expect some more fun bachelorette evenings for this girl.
Workout of the morning: YOGA
Some nice, full body yoga to start out my final week of taper. This week is back to scheduling, but one that is very laid back and meant to prepare me for the big day.
Workout Schedule For the Week: October 21
- Monday: YOGA and 3 miles of walking
- Tuesday: 5k easy run
- Wednesday: YOGA and 3 miles of walking
- Thursday: 5k easy run
- Friday: REST/YOGA
- Saturday: Possible 2 miles in STL to open up the legs
- Sunday: RACE DAY BABY!
As I’m sure you’ll notice, it’s a very light week, and one that I am looking forward to. At some point over the weekend, I came to terms with this training cycle and feel like I’m more prepared than I ever have been. My training has been strong, and now I’m ready to let my body heal up and be able to really use that strength Sunday.
but for now — it’s time for work 🙂 You know I’ll be back later 🙂
Question of the Morning: What’s your favorite work out song, or inspirational song? I need a rockin’ play list!
