Drove 30 minutes south to go meet up with the girls (because heaven forbid I do a long run on my own) to run in a new (to me) canyon. It was beautiful and there were maybe 7 cars that passed by the entire 18 miles. I like that.
18 miles total with 8 @ a 6:33 pace (my friends killed the workout with paces from 6:00—> 6:20!!!!) and it was definitely not easy for me (at ALL) but that feeling after a long run is worth it. Also, incredible news—> I didn’t have to stop once —> quite the different story compared to last week!
My purple pureflows waited patiently on the side of the river for me to finish my ice bath. It is amazing how much ice baths help me to recover after a hard run. I was a sore mess before getting in and afterwards my legs felt a trillion times better. It doesn’t feel great at all during (8 minutes.. but once your legs go numb it is fine) but it is so worth it to me because it helps me to recover fast. That means I can do another hard workout sooner:)

At least the view from where I was sitting was really good.
Went to go find Brooke an Easter dress (along with the rest of Utah.. ) and she was very positive that she just needed this hat. You know the drill, I take it off and then she sprints over to put it back on again and then we repeated that 40 times. I won and we did not get the hat.
Veggies, carbs and one incredible woman.
I absolutely loved Captain America. Then again, I would probably love any movie as long as I have a tub of popcorn in front of me.
Happy Easter. I am so thankful that I get to spend the day with the Brooker. The Easter eggs are already hidden and ready to be found.
Ever taken an ice bath? Did it help? On a scale of 1-10 how badly did you want to jump out and never do it again?
-I am getting a hot chocolate to drink next time I get in that river (aka next Saturday).
Last movie that you watched?!?
