We all stayed up way too late on Friday night and so my long run started a little bit later in the morning while the girls went with grandma to my nephew’s basketball game.
THOSE FIRST THREE MILES. I don’t know why those first few miles felt so hard (I mean those first few miles of every run are hard for me but yesterday was even more difficult than usual). I can’t tell you how many times I told myself that I’ll just start to get serious about my training on Monday and turn around and go home and postpone things. As soon as I hit mile three I felt more in the groove and my mile splits started improving (yesterday was definitely a negative split run).
The turnaround point.
12 miles total @ 7:45 average which was better than I expected (especially during those first 3 miles).
PS rewind to the morning again… the girls wanted to sleep on the couch and my niece told me she wants to sleep over more (she made sure to remind me 5 times that she couldn’t on school nights though:) so I’m guessing I’ve got a comfy couch. These two have gotten so close lately which makes me so so happy.
Brooke was exhausted and so she took a nap at my mom’s house (my mom’s idea—> she’s a good woman) while I got a few errands done before grabbing some lunch. A big salad, soup and a book before picking up Brooker again.
And then we hung out outside for as long as we possibly could before you guessed it… yep, more packing. I have no idea how we were able to fit so much randomness into our apartment over the last 1.5 years but we did and it has taken forever to go through everything.
I love to text my sister right around dinnertime to ask her what she is doing because then she always invites me over to dinner:) Her dinner ingredients were pretty darn similar to my lunch ingredients ha… she and I have very similar tastebuds.
EXCEPT for her love of ring pops. I mean they aren’t bad but ring pops are pretty much her favorite candy. I brought her one yesterday in exchange for dinner.
I also used their foam roller while we were there because mine is packed. Photography credit = Brooke.
Happy Daylight Saving Time. My brother-in-law was using his head lamp while cooking the chicken on the grill outside so I figured I would take a creepy picture with it.
Happy Sunday and let’s talk again tomorrow morning!!!!
