Ummmm yeah… yesterday included a very pretty run.
Thank you ultra training for teaching my body how to eat seconds before starting a run (but for speed stuff I have to eat earlier)… I was still chewing this as we got going:)
We do a lot of climbing the day after a speed workout because the dirt isn’t as hard on the body (along with the fact we go slower on the trails vs the roads) but it works us completely to climb so much with exhausted legs from the day before.
This will make me stronger.
As we were running I felt something sting me and I was tempted to stop and itch it every tenth of a mile.
Went straight to pick up Knox and he lost one of his front teeth.
I took them to a park and thought that the splash pad there wasn’t going to be on for a few hours but it turned on right as we were walking in which meant all three kids were soaking by the time we left.
PS I think Skye is going to have a really hard time when the big kids start school again and they are gone all day.
Next to the park is an ice cream place that I heard about and because of the name (Brookers is one of Brooke’s nicknames) I had to take the kids.
I had the Oreo one (ps Andrew doesn’t like oreos in ice cream?!) and put a big bites worth of mine into Skye’s cup for her to eat on the drive home.
And this is what I opened the car door to find afterwards… learned my lesson.
Got in some recovery with my boots.
Went to an awesome seminar at Runner’s Corner with the FOUNDER OF ALTRA (aka our coach’s son) giving the presentation.
Rewind to 2011 and Golden (above) would have me take my shoes to the shoemaker to make them drop zero when he was working on creating Altra.
Time to run PROUD.
PS Golden ran his first marathon at age 14 in 2:44!
Gorgeous night when we left and after talking to our coach for a bit we are all feeling even more excited about our fall marathons!
Give me your sentence of the day!
Last ice cream flavor that you had? Anyone else not a fan of Oreo’s in their ice cream like Andrew?
What’s your run today?
