Oh Utah, we really love exploring you.
My legs still feel like lead and so keeping up with these two was quite the struggle this morning but I do love finishing 13 miles by 7:08 in the morning. I have learned over the year of running with other people that our bodies are all so different. These girls can handle 70 mile weeks but my body just can’t at this point and that is a-okay. We just have to be happy with where we are at and to work with what we have. PS they also strength train a ton and have been marathoning for years which is a big reason they can pound out these high mileage weeks without getting injured.
Nothing like a little snow on your roof in May. When will it end?!?!
Remember how I ate poppyseed bread at my friend’s house yesterday and then I couldn’t get it out of my brain all day long and finally I just had to make two loaves for myself late last night?
Turns out it was just the pre and post-run fuel that I needed this morning.
4 other things that I just needed (not wanted, these were all needs) last night.
1. Ghirardelli chocolate chips. We drove to the store just to restock my supply. Don’t even waste your time with any other brands of chocolate chips.
2. QUALITY and QUANTITY girl time.
3. 2 lbs (seriously) of salad and the Mindy Project. I signed up for Hulu Plus for one reason—> to watch the first two seasons of The Mindy Project. Sometimes my sister and I call each other just to talk about one of the episodes.
PS I am almost 3 weeks diet coke free.
4. A good laugh with the Brookers on my bed.
Those 4 things (and the poppyseed bread) made last night pretty great.
What made last night pretty great for you?
Warm, cold, perfect temperatures where you are at?
To go along with above question, what state (or country:) are you in?
