11.5 solo miles in the cold but gorgeous morning.
Busy roads (on the trail next to the road) until it was light and when this truck carrying some of my favorite donuts (Dunford) was stopped at the light I wanted to ask the driver for one.
Got in some good climbing (1082 feet) and was happy with how great my legs felt the day after a long run (the training is working!!).
Time for three days completely off!
Listened to Lindsey’s latest episodes during the run with Meb and Shalane and loved both of them!
Okay, you can’t tell at all in the picture but my lips had a nice shade of blue to them when I got home and even a bit after my shower.
Rare occasion—> We all washed our hair on the same day.
Off to some sunshine in California for a few days (Knox is going on a trip with his mom and Andrew’s sister invited us to join them for a little vacation so that is why he isn’t with us).
Lots of beef jerky snacking.
Stopped in St. George for one of our favorite restaurants—> Viva Chicken (a Peruvian restaurant).
Love this salad and then had a Baby Ruth in the car after.
So happy to be out of her carseat… little did she know we still had another 5 hours to go.
Stopped at Andrew’s grandparents and his aunt’s to say hi and have dinner (burger bar)!
And then drove the rest of the way to our hotel after dessert.
I hope you have a great Sunday!
My highest week of mileage EVER is done and done.
71.2 miles in 6 days of running and about 66 of those miles were done before our kids woke up each morning!
Monday: 10 miles in a blizzard with friends @ 8:42 average pace.
Tuesday: 11 miles on the treadmill. 3.5 miles, 3 miles at 6:48 average, 4.5 miles. 7:50 average.
Wednesday: 7.6 miles @ 8:25 average.
Thursday: 7.1 miles @ 8:50 average.
Friday: 24 miles @ 8:16 average. 1st half with friends and then 2nd half on my own with some good hills in the last 10 miles.
Saturday: 11.5 miles @ 8:42 average with 1100 ft of climbing.
71.2 miles for the week (I love that my garmin keeps track of my weekly mileage!) and now it is time for a recovery week which means the miles drop down to 19-24 for the week and I’ll get in a yoga class too.
What was your best run this last week? Hardest run?
What do you have going on today?
Beef jerky feelings—> Delicious or no thank you?
