The perfect storm:
I was lost in my thoughts + I was listening to Justin Bieber (Where Are U Now) and signing along + I was still half asleep + I have been a klutz my entire life + an uneven sidewalk crack = I tumbled. Luckily, my hands took most of the fall but I banged up my knees a bit. My pride was more hurt than anything else because there were at least 10 cars that saw me fall.
I was able to finish up my run because it felt fine to run on but I watched those sidewalk cracks like a hawk for the rest of the run.
The best part of the entire run—> there were all sorts of rainbows going down.
I ran in a ‘new to me’ area which was exciting. For my last few training cycles I did most of my runs with other people but I’ve pretty much been on my own this time around. I adore running with people but I’ve kind of needed all of these solo runs to just think and be on my own. It has also been good for me to learn how to push myself without having somebody to chase after:)
9.3 miles @ an easy pace with 12 x 25 second pick-ups with 1 minute recoveries. Average pace of 7:49. Fun stuff. You can see the 12 pace pick-ups in the garmin info (which I study after each run):
I think Brooke may actually like almond butter more than I do which is say a lot.
Lunch was a random mixture of things in my fridge. I roasted a bunch of potatoes and green beans and topped them with ground turkey and avocado. I had some almond butter toast and watermelon too. I have found that I can get Brooke to try almost every vegetable if I roast them… I toss them in olive oil and garlic salt and bake at 400 degrees until they feel done:)
Doing a bit better in the treats department over here. Shooting for 2-3 treats a week (which is a huge improvement for me;) and last night was one of them. My date and I grabbed some ice cream at the creamery and walked around BYU campus (we both went there back in the day).
I ordered a one scoop sundae and he ordered a two scoop—> we were not expecting them to be this huge… if you are looking for a place that gives you out of control amounts of ice cream then hit up the BYU Creamery. Neither of us could finish them but they were really good!
PS anyone in Utah going to be there for when the Ironcowboy finishes his 50th ironman distance (in all 50 states in 50 days)!?!
PPS Brooke’s favorite trick lately is hiding in cupboards.
Anyone want to share a running klutz moment?
Have you been running more in groups or on your own lately?
What was the best part about your run today?
Yay or nay to the nuts and cherries on an ice cream sundae?
-Nay… just replace those things with some form of chocolate candy and I am happy.
