First 20 miler of this training cycle done and done. There have been a few 16 milers, an 18ish miler and now I can add a 20 miler to the list. We are getting closer.
Self-timers are difficult sometimes and I am glad we look like we are trying to surf or something.
We all needed a change of scenery yesterday.
We usually stick to pretty much the same route each week but decided that we needed something exciting and different because we knew we were going to be out there for awhile. I have always wanted to run down to Utah Lake and so that is what we did. The first 10 to the lake were downhill overall which meant that the 10 miles back to our car had more uphill——> perfect training for the Boston course.
45 degrees and out of all of my long runs thus far, this one felt the best. We had water bottles planted along the way and shot bloks (I need a break from Caramel Gus for a bit) to keep us fueled and hydrated.
We had an overall pace of 7:57 and we were able to talk/laugh the entire time—> I think that good things are going to happen in 6 weeks and one day.
I got home from the run only 15 minutes after Brooke woke up for the day (we slept at my mom’s house). Mission accomplished. I always keep Brooke up with me a little bit later on Friday nights so that she sleeps in a bit more so I get home from my long run at about the same time that she wakes up.
Enter in a nutrient dense bfast and lunch and then this of course….
Two of my good friends took me and the Brookers for donuts. We had to get a variety (2 more not pictured) in order to figure out which flavor was the best. I am all about the old-fashioned donuts… I don’t need all of the fancy stuff;)
At night Brooke and I had a very important event to attend. One that she has been looking forward to for months.
Disney on Ice.
She LITERALLY sat on the edge of her seat for the entire show. She also only blinked maybe a handful of times over the 1 hour and 45 minutes.
And then we all lost an hour of sleep due to Daylight Savings. BUT at least that means that summer is getting near.
Fill in the blank—> Sunday =s _______________________________!!!!!
