We hit the track for our Wednesday workout. The sprints were short but they sure burned. Our coach saw the video of all of our finishes from the last two races and decided we need to learn how to finish strong with a sprint.
50m sprint, 50m float (slower but not a jog) x 20! Accelerating into sprint mode 20 times was a challenge for sure. 1.25 miles @ 5:55 average and with the w/u and c/d I did 8.5 miles total.
While we were there KSL (a news channel for Utah) was there filming Amber (she ran a 35 minute 10k at our last race taking first overall and setting a new course record.. she is next to me on the right)! They are doing a special segment on her!
Our next stop—> the airport! We told the kids we had some things we needed to do in SLC and once we got to the airport we told them we were going to California. They were very surprised.
While at the airport we left our laptop and iPad at security (luckily they have it!) so I’m blogging from my phone! We realized once we were on the airplane they were gone so that was a stressful flight hoping that they would be in the lost and found!
Here are a few photos from the rest of the day:
Skye’s way of telling us she is ready to swim:
I have a few favorite things to share!
*Anne’s no-bake pb granola bars. Oh my goodness these are good and so easy. Below is before I chilled/cut them but we also added a few chocolate chips and all of us have been gobbling them up. SO good.
*I bought two new swimsuits for this summer and I am loving them. I love to have swimsuits that feel sporty and stay in place because when I’m at the pool, I’m chasing around kids. I bought this one and this one and couldn’t be happier with them.
*Skye is telling Brooke to step away from her popsicle. These popsicle molds have been a hit and they are so easy for Skye to hold onto too. Sara told me to try blending yogurt (whole milk yogurt for us!), blueberries and a little bit of honey and the kids love them.
*Toby sent me this video and it was pretty amazing (it gave Andrew and me goosebumps).
*This post from Stephanie. “What are the two things you control? Attitude and effort.” <— don’t forget this for your next race or workout. Control what you can and be proud of it no matter what the outcome is.
Where do you like to get your swimsuits?
Any favorite granola bar/snack recipes that you are loving? I’m looking to make something each week for us to have on hand for the kids (and Andrew/me) to snack on!
Ever lost anything important at an airport?
-One time I left my passport on the seat on a layover in Japan… I was so lucky it was still there when I went back!
What’s your run today?
