I combined various aspects of all of these recipes to try and used:
- 3 apples
- A heavy sprinkle of cinnamon
- About 3-4 tsp brown sugar
- A dash of vanilla extract
- About 1 tsp of molasses
- About 3 tsp honey
Onto the running update. This week was not so great. Between too much work and too much fun, I didn't
even do my long run. Bad Sara! Hopefully this doesn't have a significant impact on my training. I have this weird sense that I'm teetering between hard training that results in soreness and injury, so I've been kind of skiddish about running lately. I hope I'm just being paranoid, but I've experienced at least some pain on most of my runs recently. LAME. Hopefully ice, foam rolling, and stretching will help. I'm also considering whether or not compression sleeves might help - sometimes the pain is like the beginning stages of shin splints... my right knee has also been achy... gah, who knows! Anyway, onto the recaps:
Monday 10/15: 3 miles on the treadmill, since there was thunder/rain/potentially hail. i think my average pace was sub 10, but I honestly don't know.
Tuesday 10/16: strength training + spin class
Wednesday 10/17: 3.1 miles outside, avg. pace 9:53 - felt good about this one! kind of speed work but not totally?
Thursday 10/18: rest - i was worn out (not even from running, just more from school), so i restd
Friday 10/19: rest - planned to do my 10 miler but i didn't have time (work? psh)
Saturday 10/20: 3.1 miles with sabrina! (i guess this makes up for thursday's easy run that i skipped?)
Sunday 10/21: rest - also thought maybe i'd do my 10 miler, but it didn't happen
