Last night my mom made peach jam. I’m soo excited to try this with breakfast! Yum!
It’s funny because I don’t like to eat peaches by themselves but things like peach jam, peach greek yogurt, peach flavored anything is super good to me! I just can’t explain it. I’m just a weirdo.
So I found out yesterday that another girl at my work is doing the same marathon that I am! How fun is that! Except this is her…get this….11th marathon! What??!! She’s a rock star! She told me she just does these races for the medals ahaha That’s a long way to run just for a medal. I hope she has one of those cute hanger things to display them on. (which ps I want one! Christmas is only 4 months away…just sayin)
Yesterday I went for an 11 mile run. I was supposed to keep a 10:18 pace but ended up averaging at 9:48. I could tell I was going faster than I should have but I just felt so strong! So I wasn’t going to let this opportunity slide to get in a great workout. It’s the strongest I have felt in a long time and I was loving it!! Remember when 11 miles was my longest run ever and now it’s my mid-week run? This marathon business is crazy. My legs are pretty tired lately though, so I think today will be a pilates day.
If you’ve been reading for a while, you know that I’m on a podcast craze rather than listening to music on my runs. I just got annoyed with my music and I love listening to conversation. I’ve also thought about getting a “book on tape” (I know it’s not on tape…but I don’t know what to call it) so yesterday I signed up for the free trial of audiblepodcast.com and got one free book. I decided to download “Better” by Atul Gawande. The first book I read for college was “Complications”, also by this author, and I loved it! So I thought one of his other books would be a great thing to listen to while running. He’s a surgeon and (at least in his other book) he talks about the reality of being a doctor and being human all at the same time. He tells different stories and has a very engrossing way of writing. I also love just about anything medically relate. I can’t wait for Saturday’s long run so I can listen to this for hours!
It’s almost the weekend! We’re so close! It’s going to be a busy one for sure. I also have some surprises for you next week that I can’t wait to tell you about!
Favorite type of jam?
What was the last awesome run/workout you had?
Have you listened to books on tape? Any recommendations??
