I was hot yesterday on my run and I was even wearing SHORTS which is a great step in the right direction for Utah running;)
But the tracks are definitely not ready for us yet.
Emilee had a long run to get done so I joined her for the first 5 miles of her run and then I did a few 800s. On Friday I was thinking about doing speed again and I felt very very excited to do it and that is how I knew I was ready for it again.
I did 4 x 800 with equal recoveries on the roads. I was .3 miles into the my first interval and my entire body was exhausted ha. My brother (the one that did his first marathon last year) and I have a joke that if your ankles are tired (because usually those don’t feel tired for us when running… it’s everything else on your body that feels tired) then you KNOW you really gave your all in a workout.
My ankles were tired.
We are keeping the tooth fairy very busy.
After chores and naps for both of the girls we went up to Sundance. I stayed with Skye…
While Andrew took Brooke and Knox on some more advanced runs. They are getting SO good.
It was warm enough for us to explore and walk around. Even though Skye wasn’t skiing, she insisted on wearing her pass.
And then we visited my parents and this little scene was my favorite.
Here is how this last week of running looked like!
Monday: 7 miles @ miles @ 8:15
Tuesday: 10 miles @ 8:33 average
Wednesday: 7 miles @ 8:00 on the treadmill
Thursday: 5.6 miles outside @ 10:03 average through some crazy new snow and then finished up on my treadmill with another 1.4 miles
Friday: 8 miles @ 8:48 average
Saturday: 10 miles @ 7:34 average! 5 mile w/u with Emilee and then I went to the track and it was too icy so I did 4 x 800m on the roads. 2:54, 2:54, 2:51 & 2:48
49 miles for the week with a speed workout in the first time in a while!
What was your best workout last week? Hardest workout?
