And, maybe it was kind of a reward for a pretty stellar week of training.
Monday - 4 miles. 41:38; 10:31 avg pace. I ran the first 2 miles with Jeff and then continued on for 2 more miles. This made me so incredibly happy to have my non-runner husband join me for a couple miles! Whoo hoo. :)
Tuesday - 5 miles. 54:03; 10:05 avg pace. Took Sallie with me for the first 2 miles and then continued on for 3 more. Took it real slow and easy. Knees started to feel a bit wonky. :(
Wednesday - REST
Thursday - 5 miles. 46:03; 9:22 avg pace. I did a mile warm up and a mile cool down with 3 miles at tempo in the middle. Felt good and strong!
Friday - 4.25 miles. 50:12; 12:00 avg pace. Took Sallie with me for the first 1.5 miles and then struggled through another 2.25. My pace was slow - partly recovery; partly because I knew I'd be running LSD the next morning.
Saturday - 10 miles. 2:10:26; 13:20 avg pace. Gave McCoullough Hills trail another shot. It was so much better this time. Dare I say, I actually really enjoyed it! The 10 miles seemed to really fly by!!
Sunday - REST
Total #FFMarchMiles: 51.25
Before yesterday's run, I picked up a Bountiful Basket, so lots of delicious new recipes to try.

Tuesday - Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta.
Wednesday - Leftovers
Thursday - Sandwiches
Friday - Chicken with baked potatoes.
Saturday - TBD
I'm linking up with Laura over at Mommy Run Fast and Jill at Fitness, Health, & Happiness. Go check out what everyone else is cooking up this week.
We also got a 1/2 gallon of coconut oil in our Bountiful Basket yesterday. I've never used coconut oil before, so I'm very excited to start incorporating it into our day in so many ways!
What's your favorite way to use coconut oil?
