Today, I ran 4 miles, which felt pretty slow but mentally challenging. I am definitely getting weary after 6 weeks of marathon training. But, despite these creeping thoughts, I still ran my 4 miles at a good pace and I ran it well.
I had my overnight oats again, and a peach and an iced matcha latte for breakfast. I know, I’m boring.
For lunch, a vegetariano freddo sub from a local Italian supermarket called Gemelli’s. If you’re in Moco, I highly recommend it! It was the size of a small baby, so I haven’t had a snack since.
Dinner will be broccoli rabe, mushroom with eggs, and corn on the cob. I don’t know what I should have for dessert, but I want dessert. I need to eat more carbs tonight since I have my 8 mile long run tomorrow. I am nervous! Plus, it might be raining so there’s that. Ugh.
I read my Duke summer reading book (The Prince of Los Cocuyos) last night into tonight, and I really enjoyed it. It is a memoir by poet Richard Blanco about his childhood in Miami as a Cuban-American. He will be coming to Duke Orientation to speak with us about his experiences.
Today I was less bored! Woooooo. Tomorrow will be a busy day.
