This is my, ‘wow, I’m really happy I did that workout/I am really tired and I’m dreaming of laying on the ground once I get home’ face. The speed/endurance endorphins were strong but so was my tiredness by the end of yesterday’s run.
During the warm-up the entire sky went pink with the sunrise. It made me miss Brooke big time because she is obsessed with pink but then I just looked at it like it was a little hello from her and it made me really happy.
This is a very good sign below. THE DRINKING FOUNTAINS ARE ON AGAIN. They shut them down for the cold months so when you see them on again, you know that happiness is here;)
My longest run since having Skye! Here is how the workout went: 4 miles w/u, 3 x 2 miles @ a moderate pace (w/.25 mile recoveries), 2 mile c/d.
For the 3 x 2 sets the splits were: 7:18, 7:15; 7:10, 7:12; 6:59, 7:04. I felt in control of the pace which I was really excited about and I felt so much better than I did on Friday. I also had a nice tailwind on the last two sets which helped me speed it up a bit. During the warm-up I was nervous I wasn’t going to hit the paces but kept reminding myself that if my coach knows I’m ready for this workout, then I know I’m ready for this workout.
I got this picture from Andrew during the cool-down. Skye woke up about 20 minutes before I got home so I’m calling that a successful long run/breastfeeding situation ha. If I know I’m going to be running for a longer time I pump a bottle right before I leave the house just in case she needs it (she doesn’t love the bottle though) but she didn’t need it yesterday.
Skye is already talking (ehh squawking) back at Andrew when he tries to tickle her.
Fast forward a few hours and we were off!
We went to Midici with Candice and her family and it tasted soooo good. These were the salads that Andrew and I had.
And the pizza that we had. IT WAS HOT (my lips are still burning ha)!
After lunch, Andrew and Knox went on a little date. I went home with Skye to feed her and do my every other month tradition of organizing Brooke’s room. I go through her clothes and store the things that don’t fit her, go through her toys and store things that she doesn’t play with anymore etc. I am strange but I really love to do this.
We spent our night in Salt Lake City.
We ate out a lot yesterday. Back to eating at home today. It was sure fun though and I WAS HUNGRY after 12.75 miles. Pretty Bird for dinner:
The highlight of my food yesterday was at Last Course. If you are in SLC please go here. Look at these flavors:
I had the Gooey Brownie and Salted Caramel. It was so so good.
Can’t wait to see this girl today.
I hope you have a great Sunday!

45.4 MILES!! I hit my highest mileage yet since having Skye. I’m loving seeing these little accomplishments along the way to hitting the bigger ones.
