My ‘TRAILS ARE OPEN’ (in Utah) shirt from Runner’s Corner made me very happy on my Saturday run. 43 degrees = t-shirt and shorts weather, right?
It seems like it might be a waste as far as our race goals go to continue to get in our miles and training during this year since we have no idea when we will race again but the miles we do now will definitely pay off later. These miles build upon each other and your training right now is not going to go to waste! Once we know when races will be happening it will make it easier to plan on when we can amp things up again and peak for different races but until then, your miles now are still taking you closer to your race goals in the future! That consistency is EVERYTHING!
I’ve been doing 50ish miles a week (51 last week) and I’m really enjoying that.
Random but I saw two people sharing headphones like this below during my run and it reminded me of my sis and me. When she lived in New Mexico I went to visit her when I was in college and I forgot my headphones. We went running together every day while we were there and we would just share her headphones for the run. It helps that we are almost the same height and I think our stride must be pretty similar in order for us to keep the headphones in our ears so easily. I don’t know why we didn’t just play music from our phones but back then I didn’t know you could run without music.
It was a beautiful day for some grass and a Sound of Music type of setting (I posted this on my IG stories and people told me that it reminded them of the Sound of Music opening scene:). They ran up and down that hill quite a few times.
And then it was time for our first outing in forever…
We have been out of bread for a while and we finally picked some up from Great Harvest and ate on the curb. It almost felt like normal life. Brooke was just so thrilled that her cookie and her shirt were matching. Their Lemon Poppyseed bread is like a dessert.
My Saturday night consisted of weeding and I made a new goal for myself and I need your help to keep me accountable. Our entire backyard is weeds (besides a few patches of grass ha) so my goal is to spend one hour (at least) a day weeding. I finally have time to take care of our backyard so I’m going to take advantage of it! I’ll post some before and afters too.
On Sunday Andrew was put on call which I was thrilled about because it meant we got to spend the day together.
Yesterday was our four year anniversary since our very first date. We were set-up by a guy that Andrew worked with that I knew from a few years before that time. We went to Outback Steakhouse for dinner and we both knew pretty quickly that this was different!
We spent Sunday morning at BYU’s duckpond to look at all of the new baby ducks and turtles.
And then we walked around the campus for a while.
Really into the piggy back thing lately…
The best food we ate all weekend was last night. We decided we needed street tacos.
The beautiful guac ingredients before they were stirred up.
And for the tacos we used this recipe for the chicken (Andrew also grilled some steak) and it was AMAZING. It’s a recipe we will be using from here on out. If you want to make street tacos, try this one. I had three more tacos after these two:)
Last but not least, some Girl Scout cookies.
Favorite type of Girl Scout Cookies?
Are the running trails open where you are?
What was the best thing that you ate this weekend?
When you are running… what type of headphones do you use if you use any?!
