36 degrees outside at 6 a.m. totally calls for a tank top and shorts. At least I had gloves, those saved me. We had some tempo miles to get done Saturday morning and I overheat anytime I try to run fast so this outfit selection was necessary.
4 mile warm-up, 8 miles @ 6:50 average pace and 5 mile cool-down. Not sure the overall pace of the entire run because my watch struggled for the first 4 miles but I would guess around a 7:40 average for the 17 miles. The tempo miles started feeling better after the first 2. It just takes time to switch gears for me and that is right about when it kicked in.
My running motivation has been lower than normal this last week but i have been reminding myself that that is normal. That is what makes runners hardcore—> even when we don’t feel super fresh/motivated/stoked to do our workouts, we still do them and we stick with running and our training.
We did a bunch of errands all day and I got in some reading during Brooke’s nap which made me happy.
For dinner we went to a Utah favorite with the girls.
Brooke loves Saturday nights.
PS I go through Brooke’s baby pictures a lot and it is always crazy to me how much she has grown up lately.
I had the chicken and artichoke dish and Brooke opted for the grilled cheese special.
Because gas station froyo is a must on the day of a long run.
PS I celebrated Pi Day by buying a pie for us to eat today! We are celebrating my mom’s bday over at my house tonight.
Hope your Sunday is fabulous!
