Three Things Thursday

  1. Today was my final long run into work.  2.5 hours with 3 min accelerations every 30 min.  I was out the door at 5 am again.  Luckily this time there was no unfortunate incident with a curb!  The run went really well and I ran 4:1 intervals again.  I also took two gels in addition to drinking Infinit along the way, something I haven’t done on my long runs before.  The extra gels gave me that extra oomph and I didn’t feel nearly as depleted after today’s run as I have in the past.  It only took me until August 12th to figure out that maybe I’ve been needing a few more calories.  Better late than never!
  2. I totally was coveting Cat Deeley’s dress from the SYTYCD finale this evening.  It was gorgeous.  Wish I could find a picture of it!
  3. Wow, IM emotions are a funny thing.  I get choked up at the most random things.  Just reading the notes from my coach on my final training block to IM made me all misty eyed.  Yesterday just listening to Angels & Airwaves – The Adventure was enough for the ol’ tear ducts to activate.  No clue why!

Hope everyone has had a great week so far!

"SYTYCD" ??

I'm glad I wasn't doing my long run with the idea I'd get somewhere other than home at the end of it. I'd have probably ended up face down on the bike path.

This whole emotional rollercoaster thing has me pissed off. Yes another emotion. I put it down to be much more tired than usual.

Yes, IM training brings out a LOT of emotions...and better late than never to find out about extra fueling.

I LOVED Cat's dress, too cute...and I love her shoes, unfortunately my days of wearing stilleto's are gone.... so sad!

Great job - you are getting so close!

Here, you want to set emotions off...watch the video on this post. I saw it 2 weeks before my own Ironman and it gave me chills!
