I told my sister on Friday that I was going to do the Virtual Indy Mini the next day and she wanted to join which I was thrilled about.
We will definitely always remember this run and we laughed a good chunk of the run. We took it nice and carefree and I’m so proud of my sister and how well she is running. I just need to convince her to do a marathon next;)
We used old socks for gloves because it wasn’t quite cold enough for gloves but it was too cold to not use anything… And this way if we really needed to we could drop them along the way too but we ended up just putting them in our pockets.
My favorite canyon! We ended up seeing all of my running friends along the way at different times which felt SO good because it has been so so long since the last time I saw them. Now to find my next virtual race:)
When I got home Skye was not excited because she thought I wanted my spot back in bed ha. She loves cuddling with Andrew in the morning.
Our other Saturday highlights were buying tomato plants to plant because I’m too worried our seeds aren’t going to work this year. Starting the foot massages on Mother’s Day Eve.
My biggest request for the day was to go on a long hike.
We went up to Big Springs and the girls explored their little hearts out.
We did about 2.5 miles and Brooke told us she is going to build a house here to live in when she grows up.
We finished the day off with dinner at my sister’s house and then did a porch visit with my parents!
*The other day I was watching this clip from Gwen Jorgensen as she explains how they keep track of mileage. They go off of ‘Jerry Miles’ rather than GPS miles. I am still not completely sure how they figure out the Jerry Miles but she also talked about how if they run 9.5 miles they count it as 9 miles. I 10000% add in each and every .XX into my weekly mileage and maybe I’m alone in this but every step counts towards my weekly totals—> Last week was 53.49 miles!
Most random question of the day… is there a song that always makes you cry? This one makes me cry EVERY SINGLE TIME I listen to it and I just can’t get through it.
What about you, do you add in the .XX into your weekly mileage or do you round down or up? I’d love to hear what everyone does. Do you usually stop right on the mile or just whenever you get home?
Have you done any virtual races or do you have any planned?
What was the best part of your weekend?
