I tricked myself.
Before I started running this morning I told myself that it was going to be an awesome run no matter what.
I told myself to just quit complaining about the ‘altitude’ and suck it up and run. It worked and I had an awesome run. After we turned around and we were on our way back some construction workers told us the trail was closed and so that meant we had to run the other way home which involved a steep 1/2 mile uphill. It burned so good. Conquering hills feels really good.
I sure do miss those mountains back there. Not the snow part. Just the mountains.
Sister and I got to my mom’s house (she watches the girls for us while we run) and Curly joined me for some planks. No exaggeration- she held her plank for a full minute and it was a double ab workout for me because she had me laughing at the same time.
We ate blueberry muffins for breakfast (Brooke LOVES them).
And the wrap from my dreams for lunch. Fancy turkey meat (not the cheap stuff I buy), salad mix, feta and salsa with some mini cucumbers, grapes and yogurt. Washed down with some more muffins.
Have you noticed that I have been having the same tortillas with every meal here in Utah? It is because these are officially the best kind in the whole world. My Costco at home better carry these or else I might start a strike in front of the store and you can all join me.
Seriously Brooke looks like a 2 year old all of the sudden.
Do you live near mountains? If you could, would you change the temperatures/climate of where you live to something else? What?
What was your lunch today?
Mentally how was your run today: easy, challenging, fun, blah?
Do you fool yourself into a good run?
