The best part of Passover in one bite…
Chocolate covered chocolate macaroons steal my heart even more than the chocolate covered chocolate chip macaroons although I will take either variety of macaroons that you have leftover from your Passover seder tables.
I hope everyone is busy enjoying their holiday weekend (Happy Easter & Passover to you and your families!) so let’s just take a super quick look at my workouts from the week…
Pure Barre Mile High 2 & 4.25 Miles – My run was pretty bleh so I cut it shorter than usual in favor of saving some energy and regrouping for a better run on Tuesday.
9 Miles – Yep, cutting yesterday’s run short was the right thing to do.
While yesterday I struggled to maintain a 9:45 pace, 8:44 was my warm-up mile today.
It was glorious and slightly fascinating what a difference a day can make.
Overall average pace @ 8:29. Much more like it.
Pure Barre Studio Series & 5 Miles – Easy-paced run as recovery from yesterday’s run!
9 Miles – I loosely planned to run 8 miles but the time went by so fast and I was chatting on the phone towards the end of the run that suddenly 9 miles happened!
Another consistent run from start to finish averaging 8:40.
Pure Barre Studio Series – I knew I didn’t want to run again today but didn’t feel like going to the gym for the elliptical so my cardio for the morning was cleaning the house after Pure Barre.
13.1 Windy Miles – You know you are a runner when you say you ran 13.1 miles rather than saying I ran a half marathon this morning!
The difference? 13.1 miles run at your leisure, not on a race course, and at an average pace of at least a minute slower per mile than your race pace.
The wind was crazy strong yet I held consistent and felt terrific (ave pace @ 8:50).
I could have kept going but had to get to my son’s first little league practice for the season.
A few miles, I haven’t decided just yet!

Favorite chocolate treat/dessert from this weekend?
If you celebrate Easter, what are you doing for the holiday today?
If you celebrate Passover, which stores are open in your area today?! I heard the mall is open here!!
