Hello! I’ve got an overly detailed (like usual) race recap for you tomorrow but for now, let’s talk about the post-run stuff.
2.15 mile cool-down on the high school track after the race for a little over 15 mile long run.
It was a gorgeous morning and felt good to have a workout and long run done all before 8 in the morning.
Brooke used to be obsessed with playing with my garmin after a run just like Skye. It probably isn’t the best thing for the watch but whatever.
She also loved holding onto my medal and attempting to guide me around the house.
The girls joined me in some stretching while Andrew was at Home Depot to finish off two of the bathrooms. I finally showered once Skye went down for her nap.
Very random meal for lunch—> sweet potato gnocchi from TJ’s, eggs, spinach, zucchini, peppers all mixed together. It was delicious.
All three girls took a nap.. I could only sleep for 20 minutes though?!?
A bit later and we were off to dinner. Those 15.3 miles made me extremely hungry.
So much goodness all on one plate. We went to El Mexiquense Grill for dinner and it was so good. I polished this off along with the 2 cups of salsa that I added from their salsa bar.
Then we went to Ikea to find some mirrors for our bathroom. Brooke lucked out with a spot in their kids area. Skye joined us for the trip.
Because soft serve is always the right choice in my opinion.
Found these beauties at Ikea for Brooke’s birthday in a few weeks… she is going to be so excited.
The sunset last night was insane. I didn’t edit this picture at all. The sun was bright pink. It was crazy.
PS my brother sent me a video about the world’s toughest 400m race… straight up a ski slope. A 37% incline the entire way. Does anyone have any desire to do this? I think I would fall backwards on this ski slope trying to go up it.
Here is what week #2 of marathon training looks like for me! It’s been a good week of running with two races with some speed in there and my longest run in forever!
Monday: 6 miles @ 8:34
Tuesday: Race day! 2.1 mile w/u, 2.86 miles at 6:07 average (5k course cut short), 2.76 mile cool down. 7.72 miles total.
Wednesday: 5 miles with Josse @ 9:00.
Thursday: 8 miles in Vernal with some hills and an 8:25 average pace.
Friday: 5 miles with Skye in the jogging stroller @ 8:43 average pace.
Saturday: 15.32 miles total @ 6:58 average. 13.16 during the race and 2.15 cool-down afterwards (full recap tomorrow).
47.04 miles total!
