Thank you so so much for the sweet comments about the video in the last post. You guys are da best.
There was this one time when Candice and I went to the rec center at 5:50 a.m. on a Saturday morning so that we could start our long run (in the pool) by 6 and when we got there the entire parking lot was empty.
They didn’t open until 7. 7 on a Saturday!?!? People actually sleep in a little on Saturdays?
So we laid out our towels (ps can you believe how light it is early now?) and put 8 Minute Abs (this will NEVER get easier for me) on my phone and did that followed by a bunch of push-ups and fun stuff like that until they finally let us inside.
We did 2 hours of pool running and talked the whole time… Our ‘long run’ flew by. My leg is getting better and I am not limping quite as much as I was earlier this week so I am thinking there may be a happy ending to this marathon actually happening in less than a month.
PS I have to admit, I am actually really enjoying pool running (not as much as normal running but it is by far my favorite type of cross-training now).
Straight to the park with the Brookers after I got home. Getting ready is overrated.
And then hours later I was exhausted (running + water resistance = I am tired) and so during Brooke’s nap I started a new book and ate treats in bed, what I do best.
Brooke is constantly sending me subliminal messages… carrying the box of donut mix all around the house. We are going to just have to make these today.
Fun date out at Outback:) Coconut shrimp—> next time I am just going to order myself 5 plates of those.
And of course I got my usual steak and potato.
Finished up with a walk to the waterfall in the canyon. Hopefully, in less than a month I will be running right past this waterfall during the marathon… You are crossing your fingers for me that my leg is 100% by then right?!
Get some extra rest and relaxation today!!!
What was your long run/race/workout this weekend? How did it go?
Steak… yay or nay? How do you like yours cooked?
Three things that you are doing today?
-church, pancakes and refer to picture above with chocolate and a book for the third thing.
