The most important thing you will ever learn from me:
Do not, I mean DO NOT, go running in Arizona during the ‘summer months’ when the sun is already up unless it is an easy slow run and you have a gallon of water with you.
It was 85 degrees for my run so just hitting 8 miles felt like a huge accomplishment.
20 minutes warm-up (7:45 pace)
8 x 1 minute fast (6:20 pace) followed by 1 minute recovery (8 minute pace)
20 minutes cool-down (8:10 pace)
My clothes were actually drenched.
I think this is the longest I have ever gone without some sort of running injury. Stretch and do abs. I promise it is so worth the time.
Brooke seriously loves little kids. This morning when Brooke woke up the kiddos rushed in there to start singing her a good morning song. She could watch them all day long.
The best way to cool off after an incredibly hot run is clearly the pool.
PS my sister-in-law is due in less than a month…maybe I should just extend my tickets until the baby comes.
Can we just talk a minute about Brooke’s little topknot bun for a second?
The last important matter to discuss with you are two things that I just found this last weekend.
These will be the things that I buy every time I go to the grocery store and swedish fish have been bumped off of the list as far as running fuel goes and they will be replaced with these:
The best type of dry shampoo I have ever tried:
If you use dry shampoo: What brand do you use? How often?
Is it starting to cool off yet where you live or is it still pretty hot?
Any Arizonians reading? What part?
