Let’s chat about Saturday first before we get to the camping part.
We got back home at about 10:30 a.m. and then I was off to get in my miles for the day. It was 80 degrees when I left and so the handheld water bottle for this run saved me. I felt like I was drinking for the entire run. I think that I’ll probably use this for my marathon. I am loving being able to get in plenty of water and it will be nice to just grab a few Gatorades along the course on race day.
I also practiced shadow running—> aka sprint to the next tree covering and enjoy the shade there until it ends and then sprint to the next set of shadows. It was a great fartlek type workout.
8 miles @ 7:50 average in the heat is progression for me. Heat running= needed for my next race. The crazy thing to me was that there were a TON of runners out on the running trail in these temps too… runners are just hardcore people.
It wasn’t until I was uploading my pictures on my computer that I realized I matched my water bottle perfectly. I must have chosen my running outfit with my mind subconsciously finding something to match my water bottle.
I finished up with 50.2 miles total for the week including a 20 miler (that was rough…) and a mini speed workout. Six more weeks until the St. George Marathon!!!
Came home to these three. Did some stretching, Jane Fonda’s/donkey kicks/bridges to get the glutes working—> My goal this next week is to really get into habit with glute work!
After some work around the house we hit up a football game and Brooke sported her sweet new headband for part of the festivities.
Thank goodness for that umbrella because it was crazy hot.
The kids then fell asleep as we were driving so we decided to have a mini parking lot date. We grabbed some salads and ate in the car. Our kind of Saturday night.
After that we picked up a few things for Brooke’s bday party with our families. We are having a taco party along with a cake that she is going to absolutely love.
And back to Friday night—> our first of many many family camping trips ahead. We have one blurry family picture from the night. We went up Hobble Creek canyon and Andrew put the tent up and we were good to go. We met up with a bunch of families up there so the kids had a lot of other kids to play with.
They were pretty excited about the whole situation.
I was pretty excited for the cobblers and lava cake from the dutch ovens for dessert.
The kids got in a whole lot of playing and craziness…
The kids slept perfectly… and Andrew and I sure did not ha.
Three things that your Sunday is filled with?
Camping—> Yay or nay? If yay, where is your favorite place to camp?
