Overall I'm pretty happy with my training this time around. I had made it a point to get in all my training miles or as closely as possible and for the most part, I think I accomplish that. Looking over my training schedule, there was a week here and there that I had not kept up the milages due to fatigue but overall I am happy with it.
This coming week is another taper week. A couple of short runs and then I'm on my flight to Chicago. Here are some photo highlights from this past week.
|Ah coffee! I had one this week. That's what kind of week it has been.|
|Cream bun - there was no cream in the center but it looks like a pillow. Cute!|
|This photo is out of place but I was running an errand yesterday morning and decided to have breakfast at The Corner Bakery. My actual breakfast is below but this was a part of it. It's a "crisp" and it is yummy.|
|Since I was at the Sporting Good sport doing some errands for work, I got myself a new outfit to wear on the trip to Chicago.|
|Ah, so this is my Corner Bakery breakfast, croissant with soy chai tea. This tasted awesome. Wish I had some now.|
|Crazy lunch time also spent running another errand and decided to have lunch at the Fashion Island Food court. I didn't eat all that in one sitting. I only ate the soup (Chicken Tortilla Soup), a few chips and a slice of bread. I ate the spagetti later in the afternoon.|
|I had a craving for this last night. It is a Vietnamese dessert drink called Ba Mau (meaning 3 colors). So we went to a Pho joint and I had Pho and this drink. After many experiments with my pre-long run meals. I have to add Pho into the category of stuff I cannot eat the night before a long run. Seems like bread is the best carb source for me.|
|I had some waffles after my run today.|
|Waffles and sliced peach. Mmmm!|
|Finally, an early present! :D I can't wait to play with it.|
