I hope you are having an amazing weekend so far! Let’s chat about yesterday for a second.
The only time I had to run yesterday was even earlier than my normal long run time. My dad offered to drive alongside me for the first few miles until it got light out so that I wouldn’t be alone in the dark. The first few miles of driving next to me turned into him doing all 14 miles with me and he even handed me gatorade along the way. Having a cold gatorade right when you need it and then handing it back to him without having to stop spoiled me big time. I hope this is a new tradition for us. I loved having him there.
The workout called for —> the first 2 miles @ 8:05 pace, the next 10 miles @ 7:10 and the last 2 @ 8:30.
This is what I did:
I knew I had a big hill to climb at mile 9 so I tried to do some of the other miles a little bit faster to even out the pace. The middle 10 miles averaged out to be 7:06. It was definitely not easy and it took a heck of a lot of convincing that morning to get out of bed but I was really happy afterwards with how it went.
I foam rolled and stretched for a few minutes and then it was off to the parade with the Brookers.
She was a huge fan of the whole thing.
Donuts= our every holiday tradition.
We had a delicious bbq for dinner and I was reminded of how much I love corn on the cob.
And of course we had the sugar cookie fruit pizza flag.
Followed by getting in our matching shirts for the evening.
We had Stadium of Fire to attend. JOURNEY performed (which was incredible) and the fireworks were out of control like they are every year.
60,000 people were there last night!
Brooke showed off her dancing skills. It was a very successful July 4th.
Rest day today. I’m ready.
What kind of day is it for you today?
Best thing you ate yesterday?
I learned yesterday that one of my friends hates bananas!?!? Anyone else out there that hates bananas?
Long run this weekend? How’d it go?
