I am thinking we are attempting to do the robot or something in this picture but I can’t quite remember.
I’ve been trying to get my body used to waking up early again but it isn’t easy. This morning when my alarm clock went off I questioned everything about my decision to run early. The three things that got me up out of bed—> I wanted to beat the heat, I had my favorite running girls to meet which meant I knew it was going to be fun and I did NOT want to run on the treadmill.
It will just take a few more weeks for my body to adjust to waking up early again (and going to bed at a decent hour) but until then that alarm clock is just not going to feel super great. Well, it will never feel super great to get up early but it will feel a lot better than it does now.
My favorite thing about my Garmin 620 is that it tells me what my cadence (steps per minute) is for each run. Today I did 6 miles on the roads and I averaged 172 (my goal is 180) spm and then I did 4 miles on hilly trails and averaged 162. I think when I am trail running I am much more focused on keeping my ankles sprained-free and making it to the top of the hills—> my form/cadence suffers because of that. Something to work on.
10 miles and home by the time Brooke was awake. I love when I can get in a run when she doesn’t even know I am gone (we slept at my parents’ house).
My happy place.
Just a few more pics from Park City yesterday:
Brooke was rather fond of this bear.
The little ones wanted pizza for lunch and that is what we gave them.
Simple cheese pizza. It hit the spot.
Eating outside while watching the trolley go by. Kind of the best.
Come to Park City at some point in your life please.
Okay, just two more things to tell you about.
1. I tried the Cookie Butter cookies from TJ’s. My thoughts—> delicious. They are super sweet and two was all I needed to be completely satisfied. Definitely a must-try if you have a sweet tooth.
2. Now I need to know your opinion on the Tonight Dough. Who has had it? Is it worth it or should I just stick to my favorite (Phish Food).
Favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavor?
Do you prefer simple pizza or lots of toppings?
Where was your run today? Roads? Trails? Treadmill? Rest day?
Anyone else trying to get into early morning workouts again?
-The struggle is real.
