Andrew had a training that was canceled so we planned on him mountain biking after I went on a run. Then we realized that we should just get a babysitter and go together. We were almost embarrassed that it took us this long to figure out this perfect combo for the two of us.
This might be a new weekly thing for us because it was a blast.
I push him to go faster on the ups, he pushes me to go faster on the downs and on the flat he just has to slow down a little bit for me to keep up with him. It worked out really nicely.
Added bonus—> water breaks.
If you are ever feeling bored with running, I highly suggest you find some dirt to run on. I don’t know what it is about trails but they just make me love running that much more. They really make me feel like I’m a kid at recess having so much fun.
Just a little bit of mud and snow at different points! 10.5 miles @ 8:28 average.
Below is something that makes me love Strava… It reminds me of little successes that I have along the way to my bigger goals. While I’m not hitting any PRs with my road speed right now, I realized afterwards I hit a PR for a segment (1 mile w/405 ft of gain… 7.9% incline) on this trail without trying which made me really happy.
I’m calling this hill pr yesterday my mid-week speed work because after I finished the run it felt like I had finished a speed workout. Hills WORK US.
Let’s rewind to the beginning of the day. I gave Andrew and Brooke a sock set of Elsa and Olaf from Target for Christmas and it put Brooke in the best mood when she remembered them and brought Andrew his pair to wear. His socks worked great for mountain biking too;)
Now that Andrew has his truck I think the kids will always choose for him to take them to school when we are both home.
Was Andrew procrastinating working on taxes or really having a serious desire to organize the entire pantry?
He found my Boston Goodr glasses in there that I’ve been looking for for months. Skye loves hiding things and she is really good at it.
The trio back together again.
We made baked potatoes for dinner followed by chocolate from our Chocolate Passport that we got at TJ’s. I didn’t think our kids would love dark chocolate as much as they do!
I went to Costco to pick up Sambucol and Zicam because I’ve heard it is recommended to have on hand. How are you guys all feeling about what is going on with the Coronavirus? The other night I was experiencing so much anxiety over it all and especially because Andrew and Brooke are flying soon but I’m just trying to not freak out and stay aware of what is happening and be on top of anything that can be done!
Oh and if you need a good cry, read this article. I am now 1000% wanting Kellyn in the top 3 on Saturday!
How are you feeling about what is happening with the Coronavirus?
What do you lose most often?
I asked this question on IG the other day but I want your opinions today because I have a few solo runs coming up and want some new tunes. If you could only choose one more band/singer to listen to for the rest of all of your runs/races, who would it be?
Who uses Strava? What are your favorite parts about it and/or least favorite parts about it?
