This morning was my last run before the half on Saturday! I went and did a short 3 miles just to get my legs moving. I usually eat a gu before I go, but since it was only 3 miles I knew I wouldn't need it. I started out pretty fast (for me) 7:50 and decided to slow it down. I have only been able to maintain that pace one time for a 5k and I almost threw up, so I told myself that today shouldn't be a fast run, it should be a good, slow run to get ready for Saturday. I didn't look at my watch the whole time and felt SO SLOW! I thought to myself "What if I'm running 12 minute miles?" (Which there is nothing wrong with, it took me a loooong time to get to a 12 minute pace.) Anyway, when I got home and looked at my watch I was pretty surprised.
My splits were all under 9 minutes! I'm so ready to crush this half!!
Also, I wanted to share with you my favorite new recipe for oatmeal! I eat oatmeal at least 6 days a week and I never get sick of it, I just love it! Well, my hubby uses creamer in his coffee... I just use milk. He got pumpkin spice creamer the other day and I wanted it so bad, but I know I don't like it in my coffee, so I added a tablespoon to my oats, and boy oh boy, that was a great decision!!! I usually just put brown sugar and milk. But for the last week I have been using just a little brown sugar, a tablespoon of pumpkin spice creamer, and a lot of milk, and it is so delicious! You should go try it now :)
Any races coming up???
