Rest Week was AWESOME!

I have the office lifestyle of Pam Beasley, the fabulousness of Lauren Conrad, and the witty repartee of Homer J. Simpson

It's a well-known saying among marathon runners that after a marathon you can eat whatever you want the entire week.

I think I took this phrase more seriously than I did my entire training.

I feasted! You would have thought I was a prisoner with a death sentence. Whatever I wanted, done! Pop tarts, pizza, beer, cake. I think I had like four Mexican fiestas. It was phenomenal.

And I took a week off of running too. At first I was going to do a jog mid-week, but I nixed that after the 3rd burger. Once again- I take the rest week very seriously. Sunday, I slept until 2p.m. TWO PM! I haven't slept that late since college when I didn't have to be anywhere.

So after all that feasting and sloth-ing, how did the scale look?

Beautiful. Didn't gain a pound.

I think I'll run a marathon every week. =D
