Last week I was at a client meeting and the team shared these bars:
They are honestly so, so, so good. As soon as I got home I ordered a box on Amazon. They’re a little expensive (12 pack was $17) but the taste is worth it!
I like having one a couple of hours before I go for my afternoon run. Yesterday was just another easy three miler. Actually every single day this week except for the “long run” of six miles on Sunday is only three miles this week. They ease you into the 20-week plan really slowly!
After getting used to running five miles on weeknights it’s definitely weird to only run three but not in a bad way. I’m really enjoying the extra time it gives me at the end to kick my feet up and breathe for a few minutes.
One of these days I’m going to finish my run by this chair and just sink into it for a while. I bet that would be so nice after a long run!
Overall I’ve been enjoying this first week of training. I’m only going to top off the week with 21 miles I think, which is about half what I’ve been running recently. That was all part of my master plan though to avoid burnout!
If I didn’t decide to start with the 20-week plan and instead just did an 18 or 16 week plan I would have decreased my mileage anyway. It’s just nice to decrease the mileage and still be in marathon training.
There’s just something about being in a plan that makes me feel right! Plus, I’m honestly so bad about being consistent when I’m not following a plan. I end up taking way too many rest days and cut runs short. It’s much better for me to just say, “right I need to do X today because the plan says so!”
I’m such a robot! 😀
I hope you have a great weekend!
Any special plans for the (long) weekend?!
