My Favorite Macaroons & Workout Recap

The best part of Passover in one bite…

chocolate covered chocolate macaroons

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.

Just saying.

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…

weekly workout recap

*Monday*

 

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.

 

*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.

 

*Wednesday*

 

Pure Barre Studio Series & 5 Miles – Easy-paced run as recovery from yesterday’s run!

 

*Thursday*

 

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.

 

*Friday*

 

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.

*Saturday*

 

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.

*Sunday*

 

A few miles, I haven’t decided just yet!

    Haha I would never say I ran a half marathon if I didn’t race it on a race course, actually it would never occur to me! Great run, the wind wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be 🙂

      And I thought the wind was much worse than I expected! I couldn’t get it behind me no matter where I ran.

    Ohhh I want one of those macaroons! They look amazing! 🙂

    So far, just plain old choclate drizzled coconut macaroons for me.

    Saturday “mini-Seder” at Rabbi Monte and Anna Sugarman’s house.

    Sunday Easter dinner at friend’s Meg and John’s, usually about 25 or so of mostly his family. I bring wine, peeps (can’t find any yellow around….), and malted milk balls.

    A winter of indoor training has turned me into an even worse weather wimp, “feels like” of 29 decided me to skip today’s run, they YMCA being, obviously closed . . . .

    And, wow, those training paces would seem to set you up nicely for a 44:00 10K/1:38 Half. Looks like you’re headed into a good year . . .

      I hope so! I just want to break 1:45 in my next half which I am confident I can do.

    Saturday started out way too windy for my liking, but wasn’t too bad once I got started on my run. Sometimes it feels good to have the wind but only when it’s behind you and pushing you, right? Hope you had a wonderful weekend 🙂 I can’t stop oogling at all of the chocolate around my parent’s place.

    Im eating some Easter candy right now- my mom gave us some chocolate eggs filled with peanut butter!
    This morning we went to church and spent the rest of the day moving. I tried to go to Target today but it was closed, Walmart was open though.
    Hope you had a great weekend!
