I got an email inviting me to game night, which I was super excited about for several reasons.
1. I love board games
2. I could drink wine for free (note - if I don't pay for something the moment I use it, it's "free". Example: $6 for a glass of wine at a bar - not free. Drinking wine I purchased two weeks ago: free.)
3. I could wear sweatpants, my race tshirt, and my medal.
4. The email said there would be more food there.
This is basically my ideal social event. It includes only my close friends, aka no annoying random people you might encounter out in public, it involves no beauty rituals other than showering, its cheap, and it was guaranteed to be super fun.
It got even better once I arrived and found out that Casi had brought one of my favorite wines that I didn't even think was sold around here, and that all three girls had provided a dessert, which meant I got three times as much sugar. Heaven.
That's right. On demand karaoke with a self inflating whoopie cushion.
The beating continued Sunday morning, but after a ridiculous amount of coffee I managed to bang out a 10K (6.2 miles) and Jillian's 6 Pack Abs, level 2. It was 37 degrees with no wind chill, practically summer! I got to run with no gloves, ear warmers, and only one layer of clothing, it was so freeing.
After that, my
This is the point when marathon training gets super scary. All the runs are at their longest points. I just did a 5 mile "easy" run, which didn't feel so easy, followed by another round of Jillian, which was definitely not easy. Not going to lie, I'm really glad this is the last week of the challenge! This week's tempo run is 8 miles - AHHHH so frightening! But if I can power through February I get to start tapering in March.
My ankles are still really sore, and Amanda suggested trail running to strengthen them, so I think I might look into that.
