*I’ve got a REALLY good post for you tomorrow morning… you do not want to miss it. I’m just going to leave that little teaser for you;)
I think May is officially my favorite month in Utah. We are currently experiencing the perfect running weather which is clearly the best way to judge which months of the year are the best. While Andrew went for his run, I walked with Skye and Knox as he rode his bike.
I started my day with my running friends. I’m still in recovery mode after my half-marathon (I have two short speed workouts next week but most of my miles are easy next week too) so we just chatted and soaked in the sunshine.
I have missed running with these girls so much.
I’ve been wearing the Levitates (my review for them is here) this week during my recovery and they have felt really good. I’ve been really sore this week (from the race and then from strength training) and they have been great to get some bounce in my step again.
6.17 miles @ 8:14 average pace. My coach scheduled 50 minutes for my run and we almost planned the perfect 50 minute loop… we were just off by 52 seconds.
Josse’s gorgeous dog. Beretta needs to have playdates with him.
We ran later than usual so Skye was awake and ready to eat when I got home.
We eat a lot of eggs at our house. It’s one of my favorite ways to transport veggies into my stomach. When you wrap them up in a tortilla, it’s even better.
Yesterday a ton of Andrew extended family all got together up at his parents’ house for a bbq so we spent the day up there. I love their back deck. I need to convince Andrew to build one for our house.
Skye is really interested in her feet lately.
Finally, we made it to bbq season. I always celebrate surviving winter and this is a good way to celebrate.
We had hamburgers and I had way too many of these cookies but I can’t resist s’more items.
I would just like to point out that I got dressed first yesterday… Andrew is an even bigger fan of matching than I originally thought.
At about 9 we picked up Brookie. She wasn’t gone for very long but it sure felt like a while. She had a great time and was probably most excited to get back to Knox ha.
Skye was so happy to first see Brooke again.
Time for a rest day with lots of laziness.
*Did you see that the 5 non-elite women that finished in the top 15 at Boston originally left without any prize money but the Boston Marathon came out a few days ago saying that they now will get their prize money!
My RECOVERY after the race looked like this:
Wednesday: 30 minutes on the treadmill—> 3.5 miles.
Thursday: 5 miles @ 8:32 average pace.
Friday: Off from running but I did take a strength training class!
Saturday: 6.17 miles @ 8:14 average pace with friends!
14.67 miles total for the week and about 30 miles next week.
