Well this was definitely not the long run I was hoping to finish up with leading into MCM. From the start I just wasn’t quite feeling this run and it slowly went down hill from mile 15 on. I’m coming away from this run knowing that I really need to get to yoga more often (I can really tell the difference in my long runs when I don’t practice as much!) and I need to spend some more quality time with my foam roller in the next few weeks.
I did get to teach my first restorative yoga class this week which was kind of cool. I love restorative yoga and I was actually there to take the class, but was asked if I could jump in and teach when the teacher didn’t show up!
NEXT WEEK (10/7-10/13)
Yoga. Foam Roll. More Yoga. More Foam Rolling.
Not the best picture of me, but how darn cute is Madison! We had a little floor photo shoot to send pictures to Jason since he’s away for work for almost 2 weeks!
Does Madison help out with the foam rolling and yoga? Whenever I visit my parents, one of the cats love to help, but mostly his “help” is going after my ponytail.
Haha, YES! Whenever I got on the floor with my foam roller Madison runs and gets one of her bones and starts rolling around too! It’s SO cute but I’ve never been able to get a good picture of it!
My last training runs before Goofy Challenge were horrible but I managed to run really well at GC. Remember that you have trained really hard and are ready for this marathon! Happy taper!
Thanks Pam! If I weren’t so exciting about the race in general I’d probably be more stressed about how bad that last long run was!
The weather here has been horrible! I was barely able to do 4 miles without dying from dehydration, let alone your 22. I wouldn’t worry about it not going so well, you are a marathoner, you’ve got this!
I love that you’ve added 10 minute of foam rolling to your schedule. I need to do this so bad.
