Just our traditional Sunday morning laziness, pancakes, more laziness and a walk before heading to church.
Nope, I can’t do that with my tongue Brooke. (She asked me if I could about 20 times yesterday;)
I always get Brooke ready first thing and then wait until about 15 minutes before church starts to get myself ready:) Her hair is just way more fun to style.
Our last little stroll around our neighborhood before moving. So many fun memories from living here for the last 1.7 years together but I am SOOOOO ready for this next place.
Nope, still can’t do that Brooke.
The normal family dinner and Mer brought the grapes of course (I don’t know when her Sunday night fruit bringing tradition started but I’m a huge fan).
I added to dessert with my PB no-bake cookies (remember when I was pregnant and I couldn’t stand the thought of chocolate and so I made these cookies for my dessert each week?). They don’t look super appetizing but they are the best. I asked my aunt to model with them… she loved them too and I think my bro-in-law had 5 of them last night. RECIPE HERE!
We also had the sweetest foreign exchange student from Japan over for dinner and it was so much fun to talk with her. She said her favorite food in America so far has been mac and cheese and she is in love with the Utah mountains!
My nephew thinks my sister’s head makes a perfect seat. We would move him and each time he would crawl right back over and take a seat.
My running from last week:
Monday: 3 miles @ 8:32 pace (treadmill)
Tuesday: 5 miles @ 7:55 pace
Wednesday: 6 miles @ 8:32 pace (treadmill)
Thursday: 10 miles total—> first 5 with Josse and second 5 on my own. 8:18 average pace.
Friday: 7 miles total. 1 mile w/u 5 miles @ 6:45 average (one minute fast, one minute recovery repeated for 5 miles) and 1 mile c/d (treadmill)
Saturday: 12 miles outside, by myself, 55 degree weather, 7:45 average, first 25% of run was crazy hard, last 75% of run felt a lot better.
Sunday: OFF:) A walk with Brooke before church is all.
43 miles total for the week.
I HAVE SIGNED UP FOR A RACE!!!!! Finally!!! It feels like it has been forever. I’ll be running the Provo City Half Marathon (for my third time wahoo) on May 7th!! I think this half is one of my favorites. The course is crazy beautiful and they always put on a really organized race. Come run it this year and use the code HUNGRYRUNNERGIRL to get 20% off the 1/2 marathon or 5k!!!
2 years ago I ran this course in 1:24:43 and I think this year I’ll be shooting for about a 1:27-1:28 if I can get some super solid training in over the next 7 weeks and then go from there and try to cut down my time with each 1/2 for the rest of the year (I have a lot of them I want to do).
When is your next race? Which one is it?
What was the best part of your weekend?

Can you do Brooke’s tongue trick?
