We had a great crew for our challenge run (aka trails with a lot of climbing the day after a speed workout). This challenge run was shorter than previous weeks because we are pretty much all racing on Saturday but we got in 7 miles for the day with a lot of rollers in there. If you are looking for a group to run with then check with your local running store because Runner’s Corner (our running store) is how this group has been formed!
We got in a bit of altitude training on our run ha;). We were up another 1,000 feet from where we usually train.
This might just be me (let’s be honest it probably is because I’ve seen Lion King way too many times) but every time I see a scene like this I hear Mufasa’s voice in my head saying ‘everything the light touches is our kingdom.’
Random thought to go with this picture but let’s talk about rings—> In the morning my wedding ring has been hurting because my fingers are swollen a bit when I wake up. Anyone have one of those silicone type rings that you wear while running? Do you like it? What brand?
We are at about 50% of our normal weekly mileage at this point of the week and I’m also going to take Friday off. My legs are feeling much more fresh than normal right now so I have very good feelings about how this race on Saturday is going to go. This course has a lot more rolling hills throughout the 13.1 miles but I’m going to focus on keeping my effort level the same on the ups and the downs so I don’t blow up on some of the hills.
Can you guess what my favorite color is lately?
We picked up Knox from his mom and got a few things done.
Including the park.
And a request for snow cones because it was the last day of summer break.
Living her best life.
I ordered fries and loved every salty bite… if you ever have the chance to try Fry Sauce please do it ASAP.
And lastly if you make a burger at home please try it on an asiago or cheddar bagel and then let me know afterwards how much you loved it.
HOW ARE WE BACK TO BACKPACKS and routines?!
I shared yesterday that I’m a crier and here is one of those things I’m crying (a lot) about—> Happy tears/good memory tears/time needs to slow down tears.
The day Brooke was born my entire life changed for the better. I can’t believe how fast these 7 years have gone by and how incredibly lucky I am to be Brooke’s mom. Andrew has the day off from work and Knox will be with us today too so the whole family will be together to celebrate Brooke’s bday and I cannot wait.
Do you wear jewelry while you run?
Those of you that run with a group—> how did you meet them?
Anyone reading that was a reader back when Brooke was born? Remember how I got off the airplane, didn’t have anywhere to live and then went into labor?
Feel free to wish Brooke happy birthday… I’ll have her read them with me today!
