So many awesome things this week....

I really felt strong most of the week and was pretty diligent about getting things done. My ankle didn't feel amazing on long run Saturday (oddly enough, it feels better on hills than on flat surface) but I'm trying not to worry too much. Extra icing and stretching will help.

So much fabulous fall weather this week- Autumn around here never ceases to amaze me.

All.the.freaking.motivation- I can't even tell you how awesome it feels right now. To feel that drive and passion for my training and how I want things to go the next few weeks until CIM. Feels so good to be out of that rut!

My whole 'goals' thing right now is really working well. Helps that I have a big goal (CIM) smack dab in the middle of this whole thing. California, I'm coming for you.

Spending a weekend in NYC, long run with Heather...and of course, cheering on my best friend Hollie in her first marathon! Plan on 2 posts about all of this...NYC Shenanagins and my thoughts on spectating at NYCM. 
I mentioned before I had a 'friend' going to run CIM with me. Well, Heather finally made it public that she was going...with an awesome post- check it out, because the graphics make me laugh every.single.time. Not only did I get to spend time with her in NYC, we will officially be hitting both coasts together in a matter of a month. Hell to the yes. 

Goals:
1. Meal prep for the week 
2. Sugar-free week----->#EPICFAIL (you have NO idea.)
3. 3 Double digit runs and 2 non-running workouts

Next weeks goals:
1. Core Circuit (at least one round) each day!
2. Sugar-free week (splenda in coffee ok)--let's try this again!
3. 50 running miles

How was your weekend?

Do you meal prep EVERY week?
