We are just going to go ahead and soak in this ‘no snow 44 degrees in Utah’ thing until we get hit with a blizzard or something.
Brooke was pretty proud that she conquered the wall (that reminds me of that one tv show with contestants in leotards doing obstacles… American Gladiators).
And on the way back home the mountains were pink. No filter.
Dinner was a simple two ingredients (actually 3 more not pictured—> water, almond butter and bananas).
For round two we threw some almond butter on top. Nothing like brinner.
And last but not least we had a bachelor viewing party while celebrating National Popcorn Day! This Cinnamon Bun Popcorn is bomb.
Meet my coach!
Her name is Lauren Floris and I am loving working with her. One of my very good and very speedy friends has been using her as a coach and recommended her to me. I did my research on Lauren, talked to her on the phone and then decided I definitely wanted to work with her!
I had her write a little resume for the blog:)
Why I love having a running coach:
-They do the hard part. They come up with the workouts and think big picture for you. I just look at my schedule each week and do the workouts, paces, times and drills that she has put together for me. I don’t even have to think about what I should be doing which is perfect because I really like the running part of training and that is all I have to do:) She knows my goals and has the big picture in mind for my training.
-Having feedback. I love reporting back to her about a workout and getting her feedback. It is really motivating for me to have a coach to get back to about how my run went! She comments back on every run and I love that! We use Google Sheets for my training plan which is extremely easy to use.
-I tend to go overboard with training and paces and end up injured. It is really nice to have someone (that knows their stuff!!) to tell me when to run easy and when to push it. I love having such a personalized training plan.
-She has me doing all of the little things that will help me a ton with my running—> i.e. post run exercises, dynamic warm-ups, core & strength routines and pre-workout drills!
Lauren is accepting clients and you can contact her HERE!!!!
