Last Week’s Run Summary, Marathon Training, and Baked Falafel

I know I’m late with this, and have also been M.I.A. lately. I’m sorry. My office has been without internet off and on for the past week or so, and it’s been a total nightmare. So when I get home it takes me several hours to catch up on everything I missed during the day, besides having to make dinner, take Lucy for her walk, and the every-day household stuff that has to be taken care of. But anyways…

2/2/15 – 2/8/15

I took it easy last week in anticipation of marathon training starting this past Monday, although there was really no reason since so far it hasn’t been anything different than I normally do. The hardest thing for me during the first half of training (until the long runs get long) will be getting in cross-training. Because, frankly, I suck at doing anything besides running and/or walking :)

Today I went ahead and registered for the Marathon – that was exciting!


In shoe news, the Kinvaras have been working out quite well so far. I’ve worn them for every run since I got them. Does this mean I’ve stopped searching for the “perfect” shoe? Of course not! Lol! I’m going to stop at my LRS this weekend and try on the PureFlow 3 or 4, the new Launch (if they have them in stock yet), and maybe even the PureCadence. I’d also like to try the Hoka Cliftons and the New Balance 1400 but my local store doesn’t carry either of those. I’m trying to refrain from ordering anything else online since it’s been kinda hit-and-miss lately. But we’ll see…

Tonight I made baked Falafel for the first time and Wow! They are delicious! It was also my first time eating them. It definitely won’t be the last.  I put them over some quinoa with roasted garlic, and drizzled some Sesame-Garlic sauce over it. Yum!

This morning’s weigh in was 117.4 so all is still good there :)

And that’s about it for today!
