Wow! What a week!
Yes, I made it! I officially have now run 100 miles!
In the midst of running all those miles, we also had category 1 hurricane-force winds that caused us to lose our electricity for 3.5 days!!
It was quite the adventure: showering by candlelight, wearing a winter jacket inside because it was 56* in our apartment, and going to bed at 8 p.m. since there was nothing else to do! Craig and I will definitely talk about this 50 years down the road.
Thankfully, in between the chaos, I still managed to run 100 miles. Woo hoo—my first time ever!!
AM – 9 miles/1:11 (track workout: 2 x 800 meters, 2 x 1600 meters, 2 x 400 meters)
PM – 5 miles/39:40
AM – 12 miles/1:35 (treadmill workout: 2x[3 miles at marathon pace + 1 mile at half-marathon pace])
PM – 5 miles/42:44
AM – 10 miles/1:24
PM – 5 miles/39:11
Total: 100 miles
It is turning downright chilly here. I had to break out the mittens this morning on my run. Not going to lie, I am not particularly excited about this because the season that shall not be named comes next.
Chobani was extremely nice and sent me another shipment of their Greek yogurt to try. Initially they had e-mailed me saying they would send me some of their new pre-blended yogurts. However, when the first shipment arrived, it ended up being their traditional fruit-on-the-bottom containers. I didn’t mind; it was free yogurt, but they offered to send me some another shipment, this time of the pre-blended flavors.
I dug right into the Vanilla Chocolate Chunk flavor! Oh man, this stuff was like melted ice cream. Real chocolate shavings and a rich vanilla flavor. It was super good!
Well, I’m off to finish running my errands getting things off my to-do list
