Pretty fierce looking if you ask me.
(We are flexing if you can’t tell, which let’s be honest… You probably can’t tell)
10 miles done by 6:30 a.m. I love getting speed work done before I realize what I am asking my body to do.
Get ‘er done. I like to just get the hard stuff done and then out of the way so then I can play (aka have a day or two of easy running).
3 mile warm-up followed by 4 mile repeats. .5 mile recovery jog after each mile repeat.
1.5 mile cool-down. We planned this workout to be done on tired legs and boy did I have tired legs from the beginning. I think it is good to teach your body to run through tired legs because I am pretty sure my legs will be a little fatigued towards the end of my upcoming goal races… Time to train myself now to push through that feeling and finish strong.
Going to the grocery store before 7 a.m. is amazing.
No lines and no one there to stare at the girl dressed in too much purple that is extremely sweaty and needs a shower desperately.
So this meal probably doesn’t look very good but it tasted good. Layers: baked potato, black beans, canned sweet corn (you have to admit, canned corn is good), a chicken breast and bbq sauce. I really have a weird obsession with baked potatoes.
Followed by leftover birthday cake. It is a shame we only have birthdays once a year. Who made that rule up?!
The other really great parts about today:
1. Brooke is quite the painter already. Be impressed.
2. My sister and I took Brooke out on a walk (because it is finally warm enough) and we saw Mer while we were out.
3. My sister watched an episode of Parenthood with me once Brooke went down for her nap. I love that I have hooked her on that show too.
And two birthday presents that I am rather excited about.
1. A YOLO card game. Doesn’t get any better than that.
2. I am now set for at least 1 month.
