9 years with my red jeep. I bought it back in college and we have spent 92k miles together. It loves to do this thing where it stops and you have to pull over for awhile anytime that I drive for about 90 minutes straight (nothing you can do to fix it…just what this model does) and so it was finally time to part ways. Brooke had a hard time saying goodbye because she is a big fan of ‘mama’s red car’ and we no longer have a red car.
I have a feeling we will have some really really great memories together in our new car though and she will grow to love it.
So far the new car has already had two selfies go down inside.
Megan and I took it for a spin…
And Lindsey accompanied Brooke and I for a very very very special event (we will get to that soon)…
Let’s start with Wednesday morning. I had my last Yasso 800 workout.
I chose to do it on the road for a few reasons:
-When I started it was still dark and so I stuck to a busy road rather than a track by myself.
-My IT Band acts up lately when I run around a track a bunch (the curves do it to me… it even happens when I switch up the direction throughout the workout).
I did run by this tree ripe peaches sign close to a million times and it was quite tempting for me… run at a pace that makes me want to pass out or stop for a fresh peach? I chose the run option.
1 mile warm-up, 10 x .5 miles with 2:45-2:55ish recovery jogs after each one, 1 mile cool-down. 9.57 miles total.
I averaged a 2:45 for the .5 mile intervals. A few weeks ago I averaged a 2:48. Who knows how this workout transfers over to what my marathon time will be but improvement is improvement.
Back to the really important event (wow, this blog post is ridiculously long).
Brooke had her first day of gymnastics.
I think her two favorite parts of class were:
1. Chasing the hula hoops around the gym.
2- Doing downward dog during the parachute time.
We celebrated the first day of gymnastics over a cold bowl of goodness and sprinkles.
I am so sorry that I forgot to post the winner of the Ray-Ban giveaway! Allison won!
