Clearly we were all in a super great mood yesterday.
We met where we wanted to finish our run and then drove up together to where we wanted to start so we could do a point to point run. We started clear up a canyon and ran back to our cars. I always underestimate how long it takes me to recover after a race because my legs are still pretty tired after the half last weekend.
The crew was great and the scenery was beautiful. Josse planted water bottles along the way for us too which was so nice.
We wanted to get in some downhill miles to prepare us a bit for the first half of Boston. There were a few tiny uphills but overall it was down and flat the entire way. Just what I needed.
We did it. We finished. I’m glad that run is over. Ready to start feeling fresh again next week. Running is sure full of ups and downs. One week you love it and the next you may struggle but I think that is one of the many reasons I am hooked. You never know what you are going to get but you push through those tough runs because you know what the good runs feel like and you stick with it to get to those good ones again.
Brooke and I laid low most of the day getting things down around the house and doing the other normal 2 year old activities. We finally left for dinner out on the town.
The sunglasses are part of the daily uniform now.
A 5 lb. salad out with friends.
And I ended the night off with some sour watermelon sharks. They were on sale so I had to try them. I’ll stick with the sour patch kids variety from here on out.
When was your last ‘struggle’ run? What do you think caused it to feel so tough?
Sour candy—> yum or no thank you? Favorite kind?
Three things your Saturday is going to be filled with?
-Some treadmill miles, some baking and some infant holding time.
