143.8…The Final Run
Friday night calls for a glass of wine.
Well, let’s get real. Every night calls for a glass of wine but yesterday was Friday so we’ll just go with that.
I made pizza for dinner using the Garlic & Herb pizza dough from Trader Joe’s. I topped it with sauce, mozzarella, red onions and herbs.
I really liked the flavor of the crust! Until now I had just tried their plain version. This will be a repeat buy for sure.
I had two slices and a salad.
I really wanted another glass of wine but I didn’t because I had to get up bright and early today for my last run with Team in Training.
I got up at 5:45am, got dressed, grabbed my running gear and a quick breakfast of toast with peanut butter and headed out the door.
I met the team at Kit Carson park in Escondido. After a few announcements, we were on our way. Today’s run was harder for me than usual. The congestion from my cold was bothering me. I also knew that it was my last team run and I just wanted to get it done.
Mile 1- 11:50
Mile 2 – 10:42
Mile 3 – 10:56
Mile 4 – 10:31
Mile 5- 11:03
Mile 6 – 10:19
Mile 7 – 10:33
Mile .48 – 5:06
After the run we all sat down to hear all the information we will need for race day. They had breakfast burritos for everyone so I grabbed one with eggs, potatoes and cheese.
My half marathon is next Sunday. That blows my mind a bit. I know I can do it and am excited to cross the finish line. I have learned that I don’t love running but I don’t hate it either. I don’t plan on running another race until running becomes fun again. :)
I came home, showered and took the kids to Michaels. I need to decorate my shirt for race day so I bought some iron-on letters to put my name on my shirt.
When we came home I made a tuna sandwich with some pickles for lunch.
Now I’m icing my knees and trying to relax a bit.
Tomorrow I will be doing something crazy. I will be crossing something off my bucket list. I’m not going to say what it is…it’s a surprise. Guess you’ll have to wait and see! :)
Do you have a favorite pizza dough?
Any ideas what I’m doing tomorrow? For those who know….be quiet! :)
