Sunday Restday. It’s always a little strange to not start off the day with a run but it is so nice to have a rest and a lazy morning together. I did 51.15 miles last week which was my highest mileage (I think…) since the marathon. It feels good to get back to my happy mileage place.
Brooke found a gold bag and insisted on bringing it as her purse.
Turns out she placed her manicure gear in the bag to work on Andrew’s nails while we were there.
Brooke’s side bun takes me back to 4th grade because that was always my hairstyle of choice.
I taught the youth girls during church and had a blast (I miss my high school teaching days). Then we were off to pack up and hit the road again. Brooke doesn’t need to be in California until today but we wanted to split up the drive and just make it down to St. George by last night.
Somebody thought she was pretty funny for putting her jeans on backwards. Okay, it was pretty funny.
My mom gave us this book on tape to listen to in the car and we were laughing so hard. It is basically just a whole lot of randomness and talk about the funniest parts of being a parent. We loved it. Thanks mom:)
No exaggeration—> 14 degrees outside during this below picture with Andrew just roaming around in shorts and a t-shirt.
Brooke fell asleep for the last little while of our drive. We stopped by to visit my mom’s best friend (and ours now too:).
She has the same type of dog as the one that I grew up with (a Sheltie…. his name was Dealer and he was the sweetest dog I’ve ever met). It was fun to watch Brooke with this Sheltie.
Her dog even tried to tickle Brooke’s feet.
After that we went to Andrew’s brother’s house (we stayed there) and my SIL made lasagna. The food I could live off forever.
Dessert from my purse:)
And the show I will always love. House.
Brooke was sitting on my lap while I wrote up this workout and she requested it to be done in pink. I did this one last Thursday and it was KILLER. I love switching things up and the time went by so fast. Let me know if you try it or any variations that you do so that I can copy you!
My paces for these intervals were:
2 miles: 6:55 average pace
1.5 miles: 6:36 average pace
1 mile: 6:18
.5 miles 6:00 pace
.25 miles 5:40 pace
I took the recovery jogs extra SLOW because I was hurting ha.
8.65 miles total
Keep on running those hills!
