That is the question of the day my friends, does candy = carbs? If you say yes I you will immediately become my bestie
Thanks to Carrie, Danielle, and Kimberley for sending me good wishes for my test run today.. It went AWESOME! I did 4 miles in a little over 34 minutes which is WAY faster then I planned on. I think either A. my garmin messed up or B. I was too busy focusing on how IT band felt the whole time to realize I was going too fast. Either way I am a happy camper because I didn’t have any pain what so ever. I came home and ice my shins and IT band, can’t be too cautious. I have been foam rolling a few times a day as well so I plan on keeping that up.
My dad called me tonight to tell me about all the carbs my sister and him were having in preparation of the race. I ate a salad for dinner (which I never do!) so I am thinking I should have some carbs. Easter candy = carbs right? Because I have A LOT!
Mmm jelly beans and chocolate
Goals for the rest of the week: Eat well balanced meals, drink LOTS of water, and get at least 8 hours of sleep. I am off to cheer on my Chi-town teams, GO BULLS and GO BLACKHAWKS!
What advice would you give someone about to run their first half marathon?
What do you think I should do running wise this week?
I have been told an easy 3-4 tomorrow then 1-2 Friday with strides. Lots of different opinions though
