Happy Saturday to all! Todays fun was an 8 mile run at an average of 8:08. Last mile 7:29. It is a little cooler today which felt sooo nice!
Today officially marks 16 weeks till the Kansas City Marathon that my husband and I are signed up for!!! My goal for this race is a big PR (isn’t that the goal we all have). So far my fastest marathon time is 3:36 and I am going to try for a 3:15. It is quite a differenc,e but if I train right I believe it is possible. My recent 1/2 marathon time was 1:32.
If everything goes right and I PR, great!!! If not I am still so looking forward to that weekend! My husband and I are doing it together and may even spend an extra day in Kansas City just having a fun date weekend. You know you are a runner when you think a marathon is a fun date! 🙂
The training plan…I am not sure yet. I need to get on it, I know! I am trying to decide between one and two speed workouts a week. Along with that will be a long run, a day off, and the rest easy days. I am thinking about having my long runs go only up to between 16-18 miles but keeping them closer to race pace than easy pace.
I have a few books I want to read through while coming up with my plan….
I will let you know how I like them and any helpful tips I get from them :).
Onto ZOKU! This thing is sooo cool and totally works! We made oreo pudding pops today. There are so many fun flavors and different recipes. Some I want to try are:
There are a ton of great looking recipes and the best part, they are done in 10 min!!!! Love it!
