I set out on my long run much later than usual yesterday and although I was wishing I was running up where we were staying in Midway (I brought two right shoes on accident so I had to drive home and run there)… My favorite canyon/river was still as gorgeous as ever.
So peaceful up there it is ridiculous. It was about 70 degrees and cloudy and I just kind of zoned out to some Taylor Swift.
It was probably one of my most difficult 14 milers but it was my own fault that it felt so hard. At the birthday party on Friday night I ate junk. It has been awhile since I have eaten like that because of being sick and my body was not okay with it on my run… (ps if you are newish reader I have gastritis, an ulcer and some other fun things on the mend right now). I don’t know why I downplay the simple equation of junk in = junk out (aka my workouts are not going to feel great) but it is time to really focus in on what foods make me feel great and what foods hurt. 14 miles @ 7:45 pace. Next week’s long run will feel a million times better because I refuse to make the same mistake. Other than the stomach stuff my body felt great and I’m excited to continue to build back up to where I was.
PS we stayed up at the Zermatt Resort in Midway on Friday night. It was adorable and surrounded by gorgeous mountains and cabins.
I felt really cool leaving the hotel in my socks and sandals rather than my running shoes. PSA—> before you travel make sure that you pack your running stuff perfectly (who cares about the other stuff.. the running clothes/shoes/gear is all that really matters right;)
Post long-run, shower and lunch (two sweet potatoes and a turkey burger—> my stomach loves this meal!) we headed up a different canyon to stay at a friend’s cabin. I try to stay as busy as possible when Brookie is gone:)
Horses, games, ping-pong, laughing like crazy… it was a good night.
Can’t wait to see this silly girl later on today! She told me that this is her ‘afraid face.’
Do you wear sunglasses when you run? Do you have a favorite?
-If the sun is out, my Oakley Commits are on my face.
