I have decided to link up with Tara of Running n Reading as I love linkups. Make sure to check out the other bloggers there too!
Last Week: I was great. I start carb loading on Tuesday and had a lot of added sugars (coconut cream yogurt! yum!), bananas, carbs and yummy food. A great carb loading week even though it will be a long time before I want to have a banana again.
This Week: I am going to make sure I am eating enough to recover and also eating healthy and back on track with low carb eating until my next race!
Last Week: Last week rocked (minus on Friday when I got up to use the bathroom and couldn't go back to sleep). I averaged between 7.5-8 hours of sleep including 7 hours of sleep the night before the Marathon.
This Week: I want to try and get as close to 8 hours of sleep as I can. The temps should finally cool off which will make it much easier to sleep. I feel like I function better when I am getting 7.5-8 hours of sleep.

Tues: 2.1 mile run (10:45 pace)
