About 17 miles run this week. No cross training. Boo!
Last saturday I went to the Nike 26.2 preview. It was pretty much being taken down when I arrived at 1:30- well before the 4pm close.
These were some of the designs that could be pressed onto shirts at the event (if you bought one of the Nike shirts) I got this one:
Tuesday was by far the highlight of marathon training. I went to running away multisport and got to see Moses mosop.

I ran 3 easy miles that night for the fun run. (total of 5 for the night)
Did a crazy circuit workout that kicked my butt on Wednesday with CES. I plan on incorporating planks, lunges, dips, pushups etc into at least 2 workouts a week. Core training is important.
Wanted to do 11 miles, but only did 4.5 with the group. Calf is still tender. I didn't want to push it. This whole injury thing is very frustrating, but the MICE is helping a lot. The massage therapist didn't feel any knots this time in my calf so I know I am doing the right thing and healing is taking place. I'm just starting to grow impatient. I didn't cross train this week.
This was crowded. I hate crowds. Food was ok, but again- did I mention I hate large crowds?!
The bean in the summer!
What's going on this week?
-I'm psyched to make some delicious smoothies and salads this week.
Arugula, pear, blue cheese, with lemon juice- olive oil as a dressing. Yum!
