I read every. single. comment. yesterday (and so did my mom:). I cannot thank you enough. I think we need to rent out a cruise ship and go on a big running/eating/hanging out trip together. RSVP to the cruise trip idea as soon as possible.
It’s Tuesday and you know what that means.. tangents:
-Back to the usual with the Brookers. Sunday night when she got home we just caught up while snuggling on the ground in her room. It was great.
-Nothing like walking outside in the morning and having cows stare at you.
-I came across the first spin bike ever created. If I would have brought my spin shoes I would have done a workout on it;) The saddles back then seem a lot more comfortable than the ones now.
-So now not only do I want a dog, I want a horse too. This last weekend that I spent in the mountains felt like a total escape… nature gets me every time.
-Completely random actions. Just like her mama.
-My cousin got his Eagle Scout (woot-woot) and so we acted like Eagles with him at his court of honor.
-All of my favorite running tanks and shorts freshly washed and ready to be worn for the next week of runs are one of my favorite things. It is probably one of my favorite things because now I know I don’t have to do laundry for awhile.
-I don’t remember where I saw this (40% of my photo album on my phone= screenshots of things I see on the internet) but it made me happy. Speaking of Netflix, I need a new show to be addicted to. Any guidance would help.
-60 hide-and-seek games a day keeps the doctor away.
-Because when three adults go out to dinner without kids we end up taking over the crayons and doodling until our food gets there. My sister likes to remind me that my handwriting hasn’t changed one bit over the last 25 years.
-I just noticed that Snickers is doing the Coke thing and naming their candy bars… I’ll take the drama mama one please.
-Yes, yes it is.
Here is how last week’s training looked! Building back up and extending training for a marathon that goes down soonish (hopefully:)
Monday: 6.2 miles @ 7:07 average pace (middle 4 at 6:52 pace).
Tuesday: 8 miles @ 7:39 average pace.
Wednesday: 6 miles @ 7:58 average pace.
Thursday: 8.59 miles. 1 hour fast finish run—> first 30 minutes @ 7:28ish and second 30 minutes @ 6:35 pace. 6:58 average.
Friday: 4 miles @ 8:00 pace on the treadmill
Saturday: 14 miles at a 7:45 pace.
And as far as this week goes for training—> 5 treadmill miles (8:34 pace) on Monday morning and YASSOS today. I sure haven’t missed yassos (.5 mile repeats done at a hard pace) the last few weeks but they sure make you faster.
-Brooke and I had a date to Jason’s Deli yesterday and I got one of their 2 lb baked potatoes with chicken (amazing). It hit the spot and I felt great afterwards (the tomatoes were taken off because they seem to kill me a little).
-Had a little chat with Brooks and their ambassadors yesterday too and we talked socks. They now have running socks for each holiday and I can’t think of better things to wear for our holiday themed races. They aren’t online quite yet but you can find them in some running stores!
What has been your best run lately? What made it a great one?
-Last Thursday’s fast finish run was a great one because it helped me to gain some running confidence back.
Anyone have horses now or when they were growing up? Any horse lovers reading?
All-time favorite candy bar? Any Snickers fans?
-Milky Ways will always win in my heart and Carmellos come in a close second.
Please share some of your Tuesday Tangents with us:)
