Prepping for Friday’s Long Run

I have been so busy, I almost forgot that I have a 16.0 mile run on the marathon training plan tomorrow!! YIKES!

Can you believe I’m already at 16.0 miles?!?! I cannot.

 

I spent the afternoon on campus, which meant packing snacks to keep me going.

I didn’t plan on being on campus as long as I did, so when I got home I was STARVING! Dinner was the last third of my mellow mushroom mega-veggie pizza. Not as good 5 days later, but I ate every last bite.

Can you tell I’m breaking into the Halloween party candy stash? 😉

Yum!!

I need to get to bed, Friday’s are officially my long run days!

If you have been wondering why Caitlin and I have been meeting on Friday’s to do our long runs instead of Saturday or Sunday, it’s honestly because it fits best into our schedules! I have Friday’s off school, and since JasoNerd (the boyfriend) works Mon-Sat, I like to have Sunday’s to spend with him!

When I trained for my first half marathon with BFF Debbie in 2007, we did our long runs on Tuesdays!!

As long as you get them in, and space them about a week apart (give or take a day) it really doesn’t matter!

 

In other news…

My sister, Brielle, is AWESOME at doing hair. A few people asked why she is able to visit for 3 weeks, and it’s because she just graduated high school in May, and starts hair school in January!

She trims my hair (I really don’t do anything to my hair other than cut it) and I love it! She colors her friends hair, cuts, etc.

This morning she braided my hair to keep my shortest layers out of my face. I think she called it the “Lauren Conrad Braid”.

She’s considering starting her own blog about hair/fashion/makeup stuff, and I think she should do it!

But then, I’m biased because I love her!

Who thinks Brielle should start a blog? ME!!
