I tossed and turned all night so I decided to turn my alarm clock off at around 2 a.m. and hit the track whenever I woke up. <–This has been one nice part about school being cancelled… On the days Andrew is not working, I don’t have to get back in time for anything in particular.
I might be a little bit too obsessed with these shoes below (the old Hyperion from Brooks)… Every time I put them on I just automatically feel faster. I did 8 x 400 meters with 200 meter recovery jogs 1.5 weeks ago so I decided to do 10 x 400 meters yesterday. I did them based on effort rather than pace (better for my brain when last year I was in peak shape and this year not so much:) and it felt so good to get different muscles firing during the run. I couldn’t believe how tired my arms were from the workout, I forget how much more speed works my upper body too. 8 miles total for the day with music during the workout and Lindsey’s interview with Jordan Hasay during the w/u and c/d miles. Jordan has an incredible perspective on failure and I really enjoyed hearing her talk about how she handles these setbacks.
Also, there was a small family doing drills in the middle of the field while I was doing my workout. It’s crazy how just having them there made me so happy. I really miss my big group workouts with the team.
Our big adventure for the day = Getting Knox!
I found something at TJ’s that I didn’t love (still ate it but not going to buy it again)… I think it was because the crust was soggy.
Schoolwork is WAY more fun when Andrew is home.
When Skye wants you to hold her she will come up and say, “I’ll hold you” which always makes me happy.
We reached the 80s yesterday which definitely called for more popsicles.
And then for dinner we had this gorgeous creation. Roasted brussels, brown rice and salmon cooked in butter and fresh lemon juice.
We followed dinner up with just the most romantic of dates on the porch with ice cream sandwiches while hiding from the kids (I kid, kind of;).
Skye is excited to start getting going on her mileage club shirt from Runner’s Corner.
Skye walked around the house yesterday with the phone in her hand saying, ‘Oh, that’s so funny.’ I’m guessing I must say that a lot when I’m on the phone or something:)
Tracy was sharing yesterday in the comments about how much she missed going to Target and it made me realize this is probably the longest stretch of time I have gone without going to Target since one was built here. When it was just Brooke and me, we spent many weekend nights roaming the aisles. We know that store well and I can’t wait to go back too, Tracy! Although I will say my bank account is happier without the constant Target stops for just a few things;)
Can’t wait for this again.
Are tracks open where you are? Would you rather do speed on a track or on the roads or do you like to switch it up?
Back in the good ol’ days of roaming Target… how often did you go there? What are your favorite sections there?
Anything from TJ’s that you haven’t loved?
