-6 miles (8:34 pace) and a gun show with my sister this morning while stretching out… ps stretching is infinitely better/more entertaining/comical when we do it together.
-My sis scored us access to a sweet gym through her in-laws and so I get to join her if I can work out at the same time as her… he is pretty stoked about seeing me in the mornings more now (emergency stop is off on the treadmill… he comes in while we stretch after he finishes at kid’s club).
-Brooke was doing some sprints the other day on the sidewalk and she kept her hands completely straight while she was doing them… ya know, to help her to be aerodynamic.
-I fit into Brooke’s big girl bed with her pretty well which means book reading before bed is a lot more comfortable than it used to be.
-With life, with running, with goals, with everything:
-I was reading these race day clothing tips… I tend to go overboard and dress about 30 degrees cooler than it really is (I once ran a marathon in shorts and a tank while it was snowing for the 1st ten miles of the race ((pre-blog days)).
-Running so fast that she is a blur.
-Cafe Rio (and a really dark picture) salads to celebrate Kristi’s birth… she is expecting and her biggest craving is Mexican food and we gladly help her out with that craving.
–Meg’s shoes can be seen from at least a mile away (Brooke wanted in on the shoe picture)… thank goodness workout shoes are so much better looking than the old days of boring colors only.
-I’m pretty happy about my little desk area now (complete with the 3 year old that loves to hang out by me while I work and I still need to hang some of the pictures)… I may be be a little obsessed with my chair.
-Flashback to the last time I did the Provo 1/2 Marathon (the race I am training for right now) and can I tell you how much I thrive off of having a training plan and race to train for again… I get so much more excited about running with a plan vs running just randomly.
Also, these win.
Do you usually overdress or underdress for the temperatures? Or are you pretty good at figuring out the right clothes to wear for race day?
Do you prefer a training plan or no training plan? Which makes you more excited to run?
What is your sentence for the day?
