Catching up on weekend posts?
I’m a tad bit obsessed with that photo and am considering having it framed and mounted. 😉
How was your weekend? Run a race? Chilled at home? Celebrated something special?
I gave my legs a little taste of speed by hitting the treadmill early this morning for a round of fartleks. In the three week (!!) countdown to Chicago I plan to mix in a good amount of speedwork and steady longish runs to keep myself in shape. Nothing too long and nothing too hard, but just enough to remind my body what this marathon will be all about.
Speaking of training…
The plan is to treat this race as a race-pace long run. Right now my goal is to maintain a sub-9:00 minute pace in Chicago, so I hope to hold the same for Miracle Miles. My previous PR is 1:21:05 from 2009, which translates to an 8:41 per mile pace. If I finish anywhere around there I will be one happy girl. 🙂
Luckily I’ll have my Sister there to push me along.
Nothing like a little family competition to make you faster and stronger, right? It’s on Kelly!

This weekend Kelly admitted she was a little burnt out on peanut butter. Well, I’ve been a little burnt out on almond butter (hence the larger quantities of pb lately).
Are you feeling burnt out on anything lately?
