My craving for a good long run was satisfied yesterday.
Sixteen ‘happy feet’ miles—> and it was my longest run since the Boston Marathon back in April. I got back in time to get the Brookers up and I think we were both pretty thrilled to be twinners in our purple outfits. I just need to get her some purple running shoes and then we will be golden!
Just me, my tunes and some pretty great scenery.
The first 8 miles were a gradual uphill with a headwind and the last 8 were a gradual downhill with a tailwind. The legs were very happy to turn around at mile 8 and cruise down back to my car.
The splints went a little like this—> 7:40, 7:44, 7:55, 7:44, 7:43, 7:37, 7:42, 7:45, 6:42, 6:44, 6:35, 6:46, 7:13, 6:52, 6:54, 6:50.
7:17 average pace with a few stops along the way for drinks, stoplights and to talk to Josse for a minute (she was riding her bike… her ankle has been bugging her again so she is taking time off).
Brooke helped me to stretch out afterwards. She makes a great athletic trainer.
And then we hit up Costco to buy every carb on the planet for a church social today! Why is bread in every shape and form so delicious?!
My mom got the whole family together for lunch and you know something is tasty when my brother-in-law goes around the table sampling out his food.
These two are already pretty tight.
Yep, sushi for the third time this week. I don’t know if you have noticed this or not but I tend to get addicted to something for a solid 4-6 weeks and eat it as much as possible before moving on to my next thing. Had some salmon and yakisoba noodles with this too.
Split some froyo and walked around Downtown SLC afterwards.
And today we will be making popsicles (feel free to share any of your favorite popsicle recipes with us:).
I hope you have a relaxing Sunday full of your favorite things! Let me know what is going on in your world today!!!!
