Saint Louis, I’m coming.
We’ll get to that in a minute, but first…let’s backtrack.
Zach got home safe and sound last night around 10 PM — which is already past our normal bedtime. BUT — we rallied, got home, and taste tested the apple pie for you all…before we crashed hard 2 minutes later in an apple pie coma.
Yup. Approved by both of us 🙂 Expect a recipe later this afternoon :).
This morning I finished my final run for this training cycle. I may do a shake out 2 miles Saturday morning in Saint Louis, just to adjust my lungs and body to sea level…but for all intents and purposes, St Louis RnR training cycle is complete.
Workout This Morning: Final Five K 🙂
This last run went much better than my run earlier in the week. To be honest, I think the treadmill just bores the heck out of me when I’m going constant speeds — which is all I have been doing lately trying to take it easy for taper. I haven’t done speed work in probably 2 weeks — so the treadmill just gets mundane.
This morning I broke up the run and did mile 2 quite a bit faster than one and three point one, which was a nice way to break up the run. Instead of dragging along, this run seemed to fly. Looks like I’ll be working on speed work in the off season 🙂
And now — it’s time to finish getting ready and head into work. Woo hoo late day. Date night tonight 🙂
So, I’ll be back with the pie recipe AND recap of date night 🙂
Quesiton of the Afternoon: Do you switch up your speeds on the treadmill often? And if you aren’t a runner, do you have a workout that bores you fairly quickly?
