Goodness gracious that was rough. 6 mile tempo mile runs are no joke. I started with a 2.55 mile warm-up (can you tell I was procrastinating starting the workout?), 6 miles @ 6:35 average, .45 mile cool-down. About .2 miles into the tempo I knew I was in trouble and that my legs were tired and not wanting to have anything to do with tempofying (not a word but it makes sense to me). Every time I wanted to quit I did my favorite ‘pump your arms harder when your legs get tired’ trick and I kept reminding myself that I’ve done harder workouts in the past and survived those ones and so I would today too. And I survived… barely.
I’m very glad I had my St. Patrick’s gear on for the run.
Also, I’ve had a few people ask me about my nails. I have no talent whatsoever at painting my nails (also, for me they chip within hours of painting them) and so I go to a place called Essence (they are by far the best in Utah County in my opinion) to get shellac done. They charge $18 for removal and shellac and I probably go about once a month. They make me happy.
PS Brooke is all about playing salon. My favorite service that she does is the eyeball blowdrying.
We did the green milk and lucky charms for our 3/17 breakfast.
And we got the chance to see our favorite happy man.
Brooke always loves to attempt to mimic these inflatable things whenever we walk by one.
Just the classic sweet potato/shredded bbq chicken combo (I went to Costco to stock up on my staples before unpacking any boxes when we first moved in… priorities).
And we are on our very last two boxes. Moving is tiring. I’m probably not going to attempt that again for a very long time.
I told you the other day that Megan is in Hawaii and I opened up this snapchat from her the other day. They swam (I think she was in a cage type thing) with sharks all around them. I couldn’t do that. I would have to draw the line there. Bungee jumping is another thing that crosses the line for me…not going to happen (even though I went skydiving once and would do that again).
What crosses the line for you when it comes to this kind of stuff? Would you swim with sharks, bungee jump, skydive? What things freak you out too much?
What did you tell yourself during your last hard workout to keep you from quitting?
Have you eaten anything green today?
