A RUN WITH JOSSE! It’s been ages since our last run together (she has had some lame injuries but is back now) and it was so nice to get caught up on everything with her. I’d love to know how many miles we have logged together over the years because I’m guessing it is a lot.
12 miles @ 8:26 pace. I have a bit of a head cold which I’m not loving and I’m hoping it magically disappears because this week is a BIG week. I got an email yesterday that said St. George is just 33 days away so things are getting real over here and I should probably start going to bed at 7 each night because of all of the miles/workouts leading up to the race.
I was very excited to have a running shoe selfie (Saucony kids sent the kids running shoes) with both of the girls.
Brooke got in a mile (I didn’t run with her… she just ran up ahead of me and then back to me) and she makes sure to splash in every single puddle that she can. I love that her school is providing the ‘marathon in a month’ program and I hope a lot of the kids at her school are also doing it.
Andrew got back from his run around the same time. He is training for a half marathon in November and wanting under 1:40. I’m really excited for him!
Smoothies with almond milk + spinach + frozen bananas + peanut butter once we got back inside.
We decided to have a pretty low-key day. We made burgers (on asiago bagels) and watched Aladdin.
And then after awhile we went out on errands.
Two very important things were picked up while we went out on errands:
Leftovers for dinner and an early bedtime for a massive speed workout today! 3 x 3 miles… this is going to be fun!
Just a few tangents to share before I let you go:
*I definitely had a GROAN WORTHY moment yesterday but I tried to laugh instead and it worked out much better that way.
*I’m trying to learn how to wear mascara again. I had fake eyelashes on for about 5.5ish years but just recently stopped getting them because I haven’t been able to keep up with the maintenance at this current stage of life. I’m still going in to have my eyebrows waxed and tinted every 6ish weeks because that is something I can just bring Skye to but I’m really working on somehow not getting mascara smeared all over my face now each day. It’s hard. Makeup is hard.
*Loved this article about Eliud Kipchoge and especially loved seeing how he takes his easy runs pretty much double the pace of his marathon pace!
*I came across a picture of my first Garmin and it made me miss it:) I loved this Garmin but I don’t miss waiting 5 minutes for it to locate satellites for each run.
*I’ll try to remember this next month at St. George;)
Did anyone else have the Forerunner 305? What was your first GPS watch?
How long does your make-up routine take in the morning? Do you enjoy putting on make-up or not so much?
Who have you logged the most amount of miles with in your life so far?
-Josse, Brooke and Skye (I ran a lot of miles while pregnant with them;) and my sister!
Are you good at taking your easy days easy or do you tend to push the pace on those easy days?
