SHE DID IT! This friend of mine has been training hardcore (she used the same training book that I did) for her first ultra that was supposed to happen on Saturday but it was cancelled. She decided to do it around town and holy cow, she did it. 50 miles. I found her on her route (we stayed more than 6 feet apart) to cheer her on. I can’t even imagine doing 50 miles outside of an actual race. She planned her eating and drinking perfectly and I’m so proud of her. She pretty much did my weekly miles (I did 55 miles last week… 11 on Saturday) in one run!
I got home and we made crepes for breakfast. They were great fuel in between activities.
Andrew and I started lifting after breakfast on Saturday and out came Knox in his army suit asking if he could join us. I only lifted once last week (my goal is to lift twice a week) and I’m blaming not hitting my goal on how cold Utah has been this last week in the mornings. Our weight room is the same temperature as it is outside so maybe next winter I’ll just wear my ski clothing for strength training. Luckily, it’s only supposed to snow two days this week;)
Not going to lie… hitting the hot tub with tired muscles after weights and running = pure heaven. It really has been nice to not feel the normal rush through activities. We can do something for hours without even thinking about it because we have absolutely nowhere to go. I’m learning that after all of this is cleared up, I want to slow down our normal schedules a lot.
After Skye’s nap we went biking in the mountains! PS this is what Skye does anytime she can hear us coming in for her after her nap.
Skye is so excited to be included with mountain biking now.
On Sunday morning we decided we wanted to feel a little normalcy so we all took showers and got in our church clothes and had church at home.
It was so nice to have the full weekend together and things will probably start to get more busy for him this week at the hospital.
We ended our weekend by taking a trip to Deer Creek for a picnic in the back of our truck (thanks to Megan for the idea)!
And then we walked around on my favorite running trail and Skye freaked out every time she saw a fly.
Just in case you and your neighbors need something to do today….
