Photo's of the past few days and Boston Marathon taper...

My hubby made me this awesome MIZUNO Easter egg!!  We take dying Easter eggs very seriously! Haha...
Chia Pudding
I made some Chia seed pudding the other day and it was quite tasty....
1 1/4 cup Almond Milk
1/4 - 1/2 tbsp of honey
1/4 cup Chia Seeds
handful of raisins
1/2 tsp cinnamon

I put it all in a jar and got to shaking to mix it all together...then placed in fridge over night and voila!!!


We went to play with baby Avery and her big brother Jordan...My boys are sooooo in love with Avery and they have adopted Jordan as their own brother!  haha...We are so lucky to have such an amazing group of friends!

So this week I have started my Boston Marathon taper...Sunday I got hit by the GI bug and felt like pure crap!!!   Monday consisted of running 3.5 miles with my girls lacrosse team followed by 6.5 miles of speedwork...I did 10 x 400 meter repeats and really pushed the pace ... 6.5 miles in 45 mins and the 3.5 miles with the girls in 26 minutes!

Tuesday was a much needed recovery and rest day ( I probably should have taken Monday off too ).

Today... after standing out in the cold for 2 hours I went to do my tempo run and felt so stiff,  I did a warm up mile at 8:06 pace then 6 miles at 7:18 pace then 1 mile cool down at 7:35 pace.  My left leg felt very stiff and "off " the beginning few miles so I increased the incline from .5 up to 3% and this seemed to help out! 

Now it is time to taper, rest and hydrate before the big day!  My boys have been on spring break this week and this mama is ready for school to be back in session... They have been coming to lacrosse practice with me this week and my goodness do they showoff for the high school girls!  

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Anyone else love/hate tapering?

Happy Running!
