Hello from California!
Friday morning started off incredibly early and snowy. I was planning on doing my long run on the treadmill until the sun came up and then finish up outside but Mother Nature had other plans and it was quite snowy and icy so I did all 15 miles on the treadmill.
I ate some toast, fed Skye and headed to the gym. I ate my banana and hydrated on the way there.
It was rough. But I did it. Running on the treadmill is currently 30 times harder than running outside for me.
6 mile warm-up, 3 miles @ 7:20 pace, 1 mile easy, 4 x 1:00 minute @ 6:26 pace with 2 minute recoveries, cool-down until 15 miles. Played around with the incline throughout the run too.
My half-marathon is in two weeks from today.
I had quite the red face afterwards.
THERE SHOULD NOT BE SNOW ON BLOSSOMS.
Brooke’s art on the way to the airport.
We are only gone for three days but when there is a baby… you pack up and bring the entire house with you.
She did pretty good on the flight (she just cried for a few minutes towards the end) and Brooke is a flying champ after doing it so many times.
Brooke left with her dad and then Andrew and I headed over to my Bangs friend’s house (remember I hung out with her daily when I lived here?).
She had ribs, broccoli, bread, potatoes and grapes for us for dinner and it tasted amazing.
PS I feel like it is my duty to tell you about new candy so I tried these. They are a big NO. Go for the Sour Patch Kids Strawberries instead because those are amazing.
Time for Skye’s first trip to the beach and a 6 mile run.
What are three things that you are doing today?
