It’s that time of year where we really shouldn’t procrastinate our runs…
I got out a lot later than normal yesterday and during those final miles it was HOT. I also stopped to talk to a good friend for a while after my warm-up that I ran into and then we saw a biker crash into a runner which was so scary but luckily everyone was okay= I finished much later than usual.
I missed the group workout on Thursday so I decided to do it yesterday and goodness gracious speed is a lot harder for me without my friends now. They have officially spoiled me! I did a 4.5 mile w/u and then did a ladder starting at 200m and working up to a mile and then back down again. My legs are definitely still recovering from the race and hopefully next week I’ll feel some spring in my step again.
Oh and after the 11.2 miles on my own I joined my sister for a mile of her run.
How do you hydrate during the summer months? I just brought this little bottle and filled it up at drinking fountains along the way and it worked out well.
Loved listening to this episode yesterday:
Knox had a baseball game and afterwards the big kids were pretty grumpy with us so they spent some time weeding. Luckily our backyard is taken over by weeds because I think wedding is the perfect chore for kids.
I started a new habit. In the last 3 weeks since we got home from Disneyland I have eaten out 3 times. That is a record for me. I’ve wanted to learn how to cook + save money + make things for Andrew to take to work = I’m not eating out very often and it’s kind of turned into a new habit for me and I like it.
We also picked up some pink sugar cookies too from Sodalicious.
We then hit the road to go to Vernal, Ut. My brother and his family live here and it is about 2.5 hours from our house. We planned the drive during Skye’s nap time and Brooke joined her in a nap.
My nephew just got home from his mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and he is speaking in church today so we wanted to be there to support him.
They love the hotel life.
I was very happy to see some beautiful pairs of Brooks at my brother’s house:)
And Brooke went straight to their dog when we arrived.
I hope your Sunday is a great one!
