Rachelle and I own the streets of Utah County each morning that we run together. She ran a relay race this last weekend (ummm she ran an average pace of 5:39 for one of her legs) and so my workout was her easy run because she was recovering from the relay:)
I had a progression run to get done and it had been a long time since I had done one so it felt good to be back at it.
First mile at a 9, most of the middle ones around 7:30ish and the last mile at 6:30 for a total of 9 miles. For some reason my breathing felt really off and more difficult than normal but like usual when our bodies don’t fully cooperate we just have to remember that it is completely normal for some runs to be crazy.
You know I need to do laundry when I am wearing my chocolate milk shorts.
Yesterday was dedicated to getting a lot of not so fun errands done but at least one of the errands had fresh chocolate chip cookies waiting for us.
There was one R.E.A.L.L.Y. fun errand and that was to buy Brooke some clothes. It is amazing how much happiness this $14 pink jean jacket brought me.
Brooke looks too cool for school in this picture. She also got the shoes. Shopping actually is proven to be amazing therapy especially if it is for Brooke clothes.
Some day I will learn to not take pictures in front of windows.
And they came bearing treats. I miss having a TJ’s a mile from my house very badly so to have a TJ’s treat again was the best. I wonder where Brooke learns the grabbing sugary foods from?
The night was finished up with a walk around the neighborhood.
Did I tell you about the fact that Brooke FINALLY started saying mama? It is adorable and she says it all day long.
Do you ever do progression runs? Do you like them?
Ever ran a relay race? Which one? Do you want to run a relay race?
Favorite chocolate covered food?
-Besides the chocolate covered toffee….chocolate covered cinnamon bears.
