My Saturday morning usually starts with a long run but instead we spent the morning with Andrew’s family. They are staying with us this weekend and Brooke has been in cousin heaven.
PS a bunch of people have asked me about my dress——> It is so comfortable and pretty much identical to this one HERE!!
We all went to Magelby’s for brunch/lunch yesterday morning. Add this to the list of restaurants that I used to work at back in the day. I don’t know if there are many restaurants in the area that I haven’t worked at ha.
Andrew and I started off with the sweet potato fries because if those are on the menu it is really hard for us to order anything else. For my meal I had the buffalo chicken salad and it was fabulous.
Go figure… Brooke ordered french toast. She even shared some with me.
Brooke and her cousin requested twinner hair.
And a picture with their Great Grandpa!
We all came back to our house and hung out for awhile. This pineapple was our afternoon snack.
If food is out, Beretta suddenly becomes very alert.
Later on Brooke attempted to teach her little cousin how to write. These two had a sleepover in Brooke’s room and I think it made her life.
It wasn’t until much later in the evening that a run occurred. Some of our family is staying in our treadmill room and it was really cold/rainy again (I think I am still frozen from my Thursday run) so the gym was the best option for me. Running at night is rough. I’m amazed by all of you that run at night often. That took a lot of talking to myself to get me out the door to start running. 7.25 miles in an hour.
I picked up a sandwich on the way home. Hit. The. Spot.
My Friday run was a really great one. I ran over to my sister’s house and got to see these two when I got there. 9 miles @ 8:00 average. It was both cold and hot during this run.
PS the kids are amazed by the lobsters on my Brooks Boston shoes (they are available in just a few more days).
Just a quick recap of what my training looked like last week! I have a half marathon this coming weekend and I’m excited for the racing season to start over here in Utah!
Monday: 4 miles @ 8:11 pace.
Tuesday: Tempo run! 12 miles total w/the 8 middle miles @ 6:53 average pace (no breaks). This run was rough for me but I did it, so the runner’s high afterwards was pretty great.
Wednesday: Weights workout with my sister and we walked around the track for a bit to catch up on life. No running.
Thursday: 11 miles of CRAZY hills in CRAZY rain. 8:30 average pace with Josse.
Friday: 9 miles @ 8:00 pace.
Saturday: 7.25 miles on the treadmill!
43.25 miles total for the week! A bit less than I usually do but I needed that Wednesday rest day from running big time!
For the most important question of the day….
WHAT is the best Easter candy in your opinion?
I’m all about the Starburst jellybeans and I found an all strawberry bag that I need to have..
Worked in any restaurants? Which ones?
What was your best run last week? Were you above or below your normal weekly mileage?
