Happy March! It’s my Birthday Month!
16 miles last week, 18 miles this week, and it’s time for my 12-week Buffalo Half Marathon training to begin! I have been working on a training plan with one goal in mind—to PR in Buffalo. I know that if I want to race fast, I am going to have to train fast. Strength train. Recover well. Eat well. (In fact I declared the month of March #NoCandyMarch—AHHH!)
Let me just take a minute to point out how proud I am of my pup. This was a HUGE week for Georgie! She completed 4 runs totaling 10.25 miles. Not only did she run her first 5k on Wednesday, she also ran 3.4 miles on Saturday on a day that I did not feel like running AT ALL. She still stops quite a bit to sniff and take bathroom breaks (she pooped 3 times during her 3.1 mile run!) but she is getting better and seems to really enjoy our time together out on the roads.
· I posted my 4th product review as a BibRave Pro. Spoiler alert! I want more colors! You can check out my thoughts on the Merino Wool Buff here: http://www.jenrunsfastblog.com/2016/03/bibrave-pro-product-review-merino-wool.html
· I got a major haircut! 10+ inches…gone! I don’t love it but I also don’t hate it. It will just take some getting used to but I am happy to donate my ponytails to a great cause.
