Coffee…because life’s better buzzed!
I practice what I preach, lol!
I had to rearrange my run schedule and move my long run to Thursday, so I did a nice and easy treadmill run on Wednesday.
I am LOVING this GIVE GRACE t-shirt.
A pretty acai bowl for lunch.
And Robin Frazier at Franklin Massage gave me the best massage!!!! She knew that I had a long run the next day, so she helped get my body ready to run.
It felt so funny having pasta on a Wednesday night! I’m definitely a creature of habit and pasta is for Friday nights.
Long run prep! Gels: Honey Stinger, GU, Huma, Cocogo (Discount Code: JENCHOOSESJOY), Picky Bar
Thursday: Long run time, but first coffee!

***I’ll be out of town for a few days, so my blogging schedule might be a little sporadic.
Who’s racing this weekend? Chicago? Iron Horse? Middle Half?
Are you a little (or a lot) OCD with your pre-long run routine?
Do you typically run the day after your long run or take a rest day?
