Let’s catch up on a few things over the last two days:
*Turns out Emilee and I have a very different perspective with temperatures. I showed up dressed for summer (and I was still sweating) and she showed up dressed for what the temperatures were outside. I get SO hot when I am running but the second I stop I freeze and my lips turn a little purple.
*6.49 miles @ 8:02 average on Tuesday and then 7.4 miles @ 8:00 average on Wednesday.
*I got a haircut. My first one in over A YEAR. I’m going to need you guys to remind me to do things like getting my hair cut because I just forget and remember once I see my split ends are 8 inches long;). It feels so much better now.
*While I was getting my hair cut these two went out for a run together. Skye is getting in quite the jogging stroller miles this week.
*We’ve had a few soccer games and Skye no longer wants to sit on the side… she now tries to get out to the field to go kick that ball. It doesn’t matter how many times we bring her back to us… she is determined.
*Andrew and I had lunch together just the two of us. We talked about how weird it is that things are going to be changing a lot soon. He starts work in 1.5 weeks now. Over the last few years we’ve pretty much had lunch together every day (unless he was gone doing his labs/rotations). I’m really going to miss our lunches together.
*Today is Megan D’s birthday so we went out on Tuesday to celebrate at Cubby’s. A salad and sweet potato fries= heaven.
*Brooke pointed out her crush to me at school yesterday. WHAT IS GOING ON AND HOW IS MY BABY THIS OLD?!
*We had those Costco street tacos again because we knew we had about 4 minutes to eat dinner between activities last night and they were so so good.
*We are fully ready for summer!
A random thought to share with you just in case somebody needs the reminder…
I’m starting speed work again in a few weeks! I have a choice whether to be frustrated with how much speed I’ve lost or to be excited to work hard again on it. I’m going to choose excitement.
It might take a little bit of time or a whole lot of time to get back to hitting the paces that I was hitting last year… but that’s just life and I’m okay with that. I can’t compare myself to where I was last September because that is silly and going to take out the fun of the process now. If we don’t like the training or get down about ourselves the whole time over what chapter of life/running we are in now then why do it? Comparison is what takes the fun out of the training so I’ll just be focusing on the here and now as I incorporate speed again. This chapter might take me somewhere completely new with running and I’m excited about that and where I am today!
Don’t look back… Full steam ahead on those running goals! The best time to start on those goals is today.
Do you usually underdress/overdress or hit the sweet spot when it comes to running in different temperatures?
-I’m the person at the starting line in shorts and a tank top no matter how cold it is but then I usually pay for it at the end when I stop and freeze.
What’s your run for today?!
How often do you get your hair cut?
What did you eat for dinner last night? Anyone have any really great sandwich/panini combos… I’ve been really craving a good one lately!
