I traded the treadmill in for some dirt this morning. Best trade I have made in a very long time.
There is a trail that I do often where the first mile is STRAIGHT up—> 370 ft gain in that one mile + lots of rocks = if I can get to the top in under 10 minutes without any breaks I am very proud of myself. I could tell by the end that I was cutting it close to my 10 minute mark so I sprinted for the last .1. I was positive that my legs were going to fall off and my heart explode by the end of that mile. Here’s to making my weakness my strength… excited to see the hill progress over these next few months!
The trail got pretty muddy at points but if I am able to get up in the mountains in February to run (in shorts and a t-shirt too!!)… I’m a happy camper. 6 miles total and strength training tonight.
I came back to my mom’s house and my Launch 3s (you can read my review on these HERE) were there waiting for me from the mailman. My last pair hit their mile max so out with the old and in with the new (crazy how even just a color change in my shoes makes me excited to run in them;) Don’t act like you don’t kiss your new pair of running shoes too.
The best reminder each time I put on my shoes:
And for some random Monday Matters:
*Brooke calls this her doghouse and I find her here often.
*The toy of the day that I’m sure loving;)
*So last week before going to Disneyland I wanted to look tan in California so I went spray tanning.. the problem was that I got my eyebrows tinted right after. Worst idea. I didn’t even think about what would happen mixing the two things together but it wasn’t pretty… my eyebrows turned a very orange/bronzeish/bright color. My sister spent a good 30 minutes scrubbing them out and using some stuff she googled to get it out. So, fyi… don’t do what I did.
*Speaking of my sister—> She shared with me her gummy raspberries in the car which is saying a lot about our relationship at this point in life. Gummy raspberries are to her as chocolate covered cinnamon bears are to me.
*Don’t worry, I got 100% of my beanie babies in my divorce. I had a good attorney.
-My friend Lizzy brought me over the most delicious Thin Mint Poke Cake. You must make this to celebrate March. It was delicious.
*Cereal day is on March 7th and we are fully prepared to celebrate.
What was your last run in February? Anyone else able to get to the trails lately?
What cereal will you celebrate National Cereal Day with?
Any delicious mint desserts to share with us? I love the combination of mint and chocolate.
