10 miles today and 15 on Saturday which will bring my mileage for the week to 40… aka 80% of my normal mileage = I am trying real hard to do this tapering thing right.
I don’t know why but I really don’t mind the treadmill at all. I actually really enjoyed it this morning. I am constantly playing around with the speed and distracted with music and my iPad so the time flies by. I have always had a weird love for the treadmill so it must be that my brain is wired a little different than most humans.
After my run Brooke and I did her favorite post-run stretch of balancing on our heads. It is quite effective.
Blading adventures once nap time came around with Megan and her sis (Brooke took her nap at my mom’s house… ps this is going to be a long tangent—> I feel so so lucky that I was able to move to Utah when I got divorced. I don’t know what I would do without my family and friends that I have known since I was 8 close by. Staying in California would have been extremely difficult… I love California but this whole ’single mom’ thing would have been a whole lot harder there. The whole thing worked out in the best way possible… lucky.com).
I highly recommend compression socks for roller-blading.
I also recommend going through the splash pad at the end to cool off.
Tortilla base, rice, black beans, chicken, lettuce, pico and guac sounded like a fabulous way to refuel.
And then my mom and I went to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory for the best possible way to eat an apple (see… if I still lived in California I wouldn’t be able to meet up with my mom to eat treats with her and that would just be wrong:).
Who else has a brain wired to love the treadmill?
What is something that you are feeling thankful for?
