This morning’s trail run was bittersweet.
Sweet—> because I love starting off the day with Jess and the trails.
Very Bitter—> because this was our last run together before she has surgery next week. She won’t be able to run for a few months and it breaks my heart because I know how much she loves running.
I am going to miss our mornings together so much. She is going to use my spin bike during her rehab so I will just show up at her house at 6 a.m. and sit on the couch next to her as she spins and talk to make up for the lack of morning runs together.
When we plan on what time to meet the night before we keep forgetting that the sun doesn’t rise until about 6:40 now and so when we met at 6:10 this morning we got to run in the dark. Neither of us tripped on anything. It is a miracle.
Thank goodness for the flashlight on the iPhone.
Super high quality picture of Jess running in the dark with her flashlight:
Brook was still snoozing after our 7.6 miles so I did this little 15 minute strength workout and the thrusters burned real good.
And some planks. I told you I was going to live in my new sweatshirt… I even plank in it.
Lunch was lots of veggies, chicken, cheese, an apple and yogurt. My love for vegetables came from my sister. She was ALWAYS eating them when I was growing up and since my life mission is to be like her, I started at a young age to eat large amounts of vegetables.
Speaking of sister—> we exchanged food today. She brought over homemade granola for me to eat while she ate the lunch that I made her.
Who else is excited that it is finally boot weather? I know Brooke is.
Longest break that you have taken from running?
-4 months because of those silly femoral stress fractures a few years ago.
Are you a boots, flats, heels, booties person? Favorite type of non-running shoes to wear?
Any good strength workouts you have been doing lately? How often are you doing strength work right now?
Do you LOVE veggies or just eat them because you know they are good for you?
