We tried really hard to get a good self-timer shot with my iPhone of us running and this is the best that we were able to get.
A humid run yesterday morning with Jess. I really don’t understand how you East Coasters run in humidity… my version of humidity in Utah is probably equivalent to the driest day of the year for you. I almost sweated to death with our 3% humidity yesterday.
Competitiveness. The topic of the day.
I was thinking about it yesterday and I really think that over the years I have lost some of my competitive bones. When I am in a race (except for my last marathon I could barely finish let alone compete) I feel like my competitive side really comes out. But during training I don’t feel competitive at all anymore. It used to drive me to push harder if someone was running faster than me outside or next to me on the treadmill but now I just clap in my head for them and go along at whatever pace I feel like going. I think I am just more competitive with myself over the last little while than anything else if that makes sense… hitting a certain pace or a goal time drives me to run faster than competing with another runner. When my sister and I used to go running a lot a few years ago we would end up sprinting pretty much for the entire last mile or two because one person would speed up and then the other would catch them and pass the other and do that over and over again until we finished… that doesn’t happen anymore:)
Is this you:
I have a love/hate relationship with Ikea. I love it because I get some killer deals there but I don’t love it when I leave with a headache and sore arms from pushing around 500 lbs of stuff. If only Ikea would just deliver everything right to me and put it together for me too… all for a cheap price:).
A date with my parents at Costco for some pizza for dinner #1
And a late night dinner #2 with Jess and Paige. Jess had this for dessert and I actually did drool onto the table.
Brooke is so over my 21 days of no desserts… anytime we walk past a froyo place she just stands there and points.
PS Candice sent me this awesome ab/obliques workout! Try it, it is great! I am still sore and I did it two days ago.
Remember to keep up with the GLUTE EXERCISES from last week… I will have some new ones for you to add later on today.
Are you pretty competitive or not so much? Would you rather place well in a race or get a personal record? Anyone competitive with their siblings? What about the people next to you on the treadmill?
Are you one of those lucky ones that gets to run in the humidity every day? HOW do you do it?
Ikea—> love/hate/somewhere in the middle?
