Hello! It’s the last day of Run Camp! It’s not really the first day of training for the LA Marathon, but it’s the first day I’m keeping track of my training and eating. I’m trying to be better about logging everything to get better. I have a lot of big goals and big races coming up!!
First, let’s talk about food. I have been craving GOOD chips and guac so I grabbed some from Trader Joe’s… it didn’t do the trick. I really need to make it myself. womp womp.
In running shoe news… I hit up Road Runner Sports for some gels for my long run and there is a BIG clearance sale right now.
In cat news…
Vegas is sleeping. That’s not news, that’s all he does – but it does it well. Go Vegas!!
Yesterday was the most gorgeous day ever in the history of the world (I have to double check that, but I don’t have time to research right now).
Run – 20 miles. I kept a good pace, but a few of the miles were pretty rough. And after I felt wrecked. I need to focus on stretching and core work.
God Bless California.
In running eating news…
I hit up Smart & Final for grapes. I am obsessed with grapes when watermelon is out of season.
Anyway… I saw Lean Cuisines were on sale AND if you bought 4 you get a box of Drumsticks FREE. I could not turn that down. But isn’t it kinda funny to give people buying Lean Cuisines – ice cream? But who am I to question free ice cream?! I was all about it!
Run Camp Day 21
Last day of Run Camp!! For the last 21 days we’ve been doing small changes and check-ins to run faster, stronger, longer and better!
Over 1000 RER-ers joined Run Camp and a few hundred were in the Facebook group. Seriously – You ROCK!!! So so proud of all the work and support of each other. I love it.
I’m going to be putting the Run Camp Calendar, log and all the challenges and tips in an e-book you can get in one shot soon. Stay tuned for that!
Final Run Camp Challenge:
1. Finish your running log for this week.
2. Compare it to the last 2 weeks.
Check in and ask yourself –
What did you improve about your running?
What do you still want to work on?
What was your BEST run from the last 21 days?? Why was it awesome?
What was your WORST run? Why was it bad? What can you do next time to prevent a similar situation?
What is your biggest strength in running?
3. Give yourself a high five / hug / thumbs up selfie for signing up for Run Camp and working to be a better runner. It’s not easy to run. It’s not easy to add a challenge to your schedule. You are getting better everyday.
