Hello! I hit up the Surf City Marathon expo yesterday. And because I’m a mess (in running and in life) I changed from the full to the half marathon. It was super easy to switch it. Thank Jesus (or I would have been seeing him very soon).
This was the first time ever I was in and out of the expo super quick. There has been a line so many times in the past.
I had to…
In other news… I LOVE my latest Stitchfix delivery. This top and there’s a maxi dress dreams are made of.
And I had lots o’ Spark yesterday and today.
Friday night I was a party animal.
And by ‘party animal’ I mean couch potato with my lil animal.
So yesterday I said on Instagram that I was going down to the half and refocusing on training because I’ve been struggling lately. One of my new favorite people chimed in that I should look into Hansen’s training plan. And with that the game is changed.
I love it. It’s a high mileage training plan that incorporates tempo runs. So today I did 7 miles and tomorrow is the Surf City Half Marathon. Boom. Just like I like it.
We’ll see how it goes tomorrow. It’s going to be the first day of my 12 week training for the OC Marathon. (PS – If you register for OC please say Monica Olivas in the Blog Ambassador drop down menu so they think I have friends.)
Post run eats included avocado toast with a side of Vegas.
And now I’m off to get race ready (read: hang out at my mom’s and eat all her food).
