Good morning! I hope you were able to sleep in a bit this morning. Andrew and Brooke both had an awesome race yesterday. They have written their race recaps and I’ll post those tomorrow morning so check it out. But until then, let’s talk about everything else that went down yesterday!
In case you missed out last week, the top three most viewed posts were:
Andrew left at about 3:40! Skye woke up a bit later and I couldn’t fall back asleep so I hit the treadmill. Six miles @ 8:35 average pace and I think that was my hardest run in months. I have lost my treadmill endurance big time. Maybe this next winter I’ll build it up again.
I was out the door by 6:35 with the girls to go find Andrew. They both were champs. I am very glad I put them to bed VERY early on Friday night ha.
We learned yesterday that spectating with kids might be more tiring than actually running the race ha;) I don’t know how Andrew always seems to do this so seamlessly.
Skye agrees… it was exhausting for her too.
We saw Andrew at about mile 9 and he looked really strong. Brooke ran up to him and gave him a high five. The weather was PERFECT at that point for runners. We were a little chilly so it was just right for them but things really warmed up for last two miles.
We made it to the finish line somehow in time to cheer him on in. Seriously, race spectating is so inspiring for me. Usually I have race FOMO if I’m not running but yesterday it was so fun to see so many friends out there working hard!
Candice did awesome! I should have brushed my hair.
I met Rylee (I was episode #47 on his podcast) and an awesome PR at the race!
Knox had a tee-ball game that we were going to but we had a few minutes to spare so we just stopped by the Farmer’s Market for a bit since it was close!
This mango juice is life.
Brooke insisted on this purchase below. A new binkie with lips. It is hilarious to see her sucking on this thing.
Another easy Costco meal that was delicious along with some roasted broccoli!
Andrew and I snuck away from the girls for a little bit to go on a date. It has been forever since it was just the two of us. It was so nice and kind of weird to not have anyone to worry about while we were out ha. Dole Whip for the win—> mango and pineapple swirl for me.
And we picked up some apples for my parents. It’s always funnier when you aren’t the one that is crazy sore and struggling going down the stairs because of a run/workout/race.
She loves her blanket tags! Andrew told me that Knox was the exact same way!
Here’s what last week’s training looked like! After watching yesterday’s race, I am more excited than ever to get MOVING this week!
Monday: 8 miles @ 8:45 pace with Josse.
Tuesday: 6 miles @ 8:35 pace.
Wednesday: 1.5 mile w/u, 6 x 800m (3:10, 3:10, 3:11, 3:10, 3:13, 3:07) and 400m recovery jogs, 6 x 200m (43 second average) and 90 second recovery jogs, 1 mile c/d. 8.75 miles total!
Thursday: 6 miles @ 8:30 pace.
Friday: 10.37 miles @ 8:12 average pace. 10 miles + 6 x 20 seconds fast (around a 6:00 pace) with 60 second recoveries.
Saturday: 6 miles on my treadmill at way too early in the morning o’clock.
45.12 miles for the week! Getting back up there again.
