As I was running by Whole Foods this morning the sun was rising just above the store and it made me think of all of you Whole Foods salad bar loving people out there. It gave me warm fuzzies.
I still haven’t tried their salad bar yet but I am sure at some point in the near future I will break down and try it out.
Surprisingly my legs felt really good this morning after Saturday’s 5k and I was able to do the workout my coach had for me.
6 miles @ 7:27 pace followed by 10 x 20 second strides with a 1 minute jog in between. The strides started at 5k pace and then I worked down to mile pace. Try these sometime because your legs are guaranteed to feel like jello at the end. I did a total of 8 miles.
I think early morning running is my best time to run, now I just need to find races that start ridiculously early. In Utah all of the races (that I did at least) started really early but I am having a hard time finding any races that starts before 8 here. I guess I will just deal with that considering the fact that it is perfect running weather here 12 months of the year.
And on to our relay team:
It is a parenting relay team. I plan my run so that I don’t have to wake up a second earlier than I need to to make sure that I get home 45 seconds before Billy has to leave for work. He passes the baton on to me when I walk in the door and it is working out really well for us. I get in some core work and stretching and then the Brooker wakes up ready to party.
Fun fact Monday: Brooke is just as in love with watermelon as I am and a bonus fun fact for your day is that my house is a disaster and I don’t even mind.
We spent the day doing errands including one of my absolute favorite things in the world. The car wash. Having a clean and freshly vacuumed (they even vacuumed Brooke’s car seat) car is just as good to me as entering a free all you can eat froyo bar. My house can have clutter (okay, not the kitchen or bathroom) but I just need a clean car.
For lunch I had roasted veggies with a chicken panini….aka I had leftover chicken/cream cheese mixture from making the chicken rollups yesterday and decided to make a panini of it.
Time to find something sweet to eat because you kind of need something sweet at the end of every meal and then I will be putting together my race wish list for this summer and fall.
