The schedule that I made from smartcoach on runner's world has my long run as 7 miles this week. I feel like I just started training 3 weeks ago and that I really don't need a rest week on the long run. So far I've done 13.1(race), then 12, 14 and 16. My plan is above. What do you think I should do this weekend?
As far as fueling, I haven't been doing it! I'm kind of skipping GU because I'm angry they didn't respond to my request to try out new products/write a review. Yep- I'm a ball buster like that. I used that stuff all through my pregnancy and was a gu poster model - so at least I feel I could use a response (and I've seen it on other blogs). As a result, I don't know what I'm doing mid-run for fuel. I haven't really needed anything? What are you using this season?
Today I made Danica's pumpkin muffins into bread, it was delicious. I didn't use bananas and I swapped ground nuts for almond butter. Yum yum! I also added some milk.
Heather's groat bread without the Stevia - YUM! This is basically some part of oats - groats - with water after being soaked overnight and baked. Delicious and simple!!! I may have to try this pre-run!
For Clare, I'll dig up my quinoa muffin recipe and post it.
Confession - I have not been to master's swimming in almost 2 weeks (it will be 2 weeks on Wednesday!) Last week I was way too tired when Nick had woke up in the middle of the night - he's been stuffy lately, then Bill was away one night, and the past 2 practices (friday, monday) I just could not get out of bed. I have to get back into it on Wednesday! I swam with my sister on Saturday and it felt GREAT - the whole 5am thing, puhh! I reason with myself at 4:30 am that I should sleep in while I can (not teaching).
