There is just something about these temperatures getting warmer that is making me so motivated to work towards some new PRs. All winter I had ZERO desire to do any speed work and now I’m dreaming about the track again… what is happening to me? I think this is what makes running still so fun for me after doing it for so long= I do exactly what my mind/body wants to do each season. When I crave slowing down, I do it. When I want to try a new race distance, let’s go.
Right now I’m craving a good ol’ tempo and some repeats each week.
My favorite canyon ever…
And my favorite drinking fountain ever… This water tastes so much better than normal water.
12.19 miles at 7:45 average. Some miles at 8 and some miles at 7:20 and everything else in between.
Skye does not want to wear a shirt these days but she INSISTS on us putting her sandals on as soon as she can get into the mudroom to grab them in the morning.
After we did our Saturday chores (thanks mom for passing that tradition down to us… the kids are very appreciative of that;) we drove up to Salt Lake City to go to the Farmers Market. The problem was that when we got there the Farmers Market wasn’t there (I definitely was looking at the wrong website bc it doesn’t start until June)… BUT it turned out to be the biggest blessing in disguise. We were planning on eating at the Farmers Market but because it wasn’t there, we looked up another place to eat.
Enter in Chungas.
Add this to my MUST EAT IF YOU ARE EVER IN SALT LAKE CITY.
You don’t even need chips for the guacamole… it’s so good you can just spoon it in with your hands.
I had the al pastor tacos (THE BEST EVER) along with the spicy pork taco (also good). Andrew told me that these tacos were worth the hour drive just to eat these. I have a feeling we will be stopping here each time we drive to my in-laws now:)
Next stop—> the tulips at Temple Square.
They are unreal right now.
Then we did some shopping around City Creek. I’m not sure what was so funny but I’m sure everyone in Madewell could hear these two giggling.
On the way home one of the big kids woke Skye up just a few minutes after she had fallen asleep for her nap so Skye cried the whole way home. We were all very happy to get home and out of the car but the tacos and tulips made it all worth it;).
Here’s to an off day for me and staying in pajamas for a large portion of the day!
What do you have going on today?
Run day, off day or cross-training day?
Do the warmer temperatures make you more motivated to do speed or is this just a weird thing that happens to me?
