Dessert! And Lansing Marathon training week #15 recap

Dessert anyone?

The lime bars and black forest cheesecake bites were both SO yummy!  But I think I am officially done with desserts and red wine until after Lansing.  Right.  Let’s see how well that works out for me.  Any bets on how long I last?!?

Today was a great day.  Started off with coffee and a run.  Church with the kids.  A food filled day with the family.  Dessert and red wine.  Love it all!


Wow – week 15 of training is in the books.  Crazy that this training cycle is now almost at an end.   Official taper time now!  My week this week was heavier in the first few days, so I would say that I’m doing a 2 1/2 week taper, which seems to work just right for me.  3 weeks ends up seeming long and 2 not quite enough.

  1. wow those desserts look amazing! i’m the worst with desserts – have such a sweet tooth! but that’s a bonus of running – you can allow yourself some treats 🙂 happy taper and good luck in the race!!

  2. I enjoyed some dessert myself yesterday–but yours look yummier!

    I can’t believe you’re tapering! I feel like your training just started!
