I really need to start paying my kids for helping me out by taking running pictures;). Thanks Brooke for this one…
PS it was fun to put on my old Hyperions again for a run (these were the same ones I wore for my last race 13 months ago).
Once I parked at the place where our run was starting I realized my arm felt a lot lighter… I FORGOT MY GARMIN. I haven’t forgotten my Garmin for a speed workout in a very long time. I might forget my Garmin more often on speed days ha.. I was so in tune with my body during the workout yesterday because I didn’t have a watch to look at! PS The other day on a run I was talking to Emilee about some goals we have for our future running and while I know it is going to take years to build up to these goals and that I have SOOOOO far to go, it’s all really exciting to me. In the past I would let the feeling of being so far behind where I used to be defeat me and bring me down but this time around, I really am excited for the entire process and all of the milestones along the way.
The reward after the 3 mile tempo= a cool down with a pink sky to stare at.
I got out the good ol’ pull-up bar… I’m starting out by just hanging from it and that was incredibly hard but I’m excited to work towards these too!
Beck forced me to be comfortable and hang out on my bed while he took a nap in my arms;) It was great for post-speedwork recovery.
PS Andrew thinks we should have Beck get a haircut but I can’t handle the idea of it yet.
Later on we went to Runner’s Corner to get some running necessities (THE GHOST 13… I am so excited and I’ll write a review after I get 50ish miles in them). Skye got in a few laps on their outdoor loop that people use to test out different shoes.
The first run in a new pair of shoes is the best… I can’t wait for some easy miles today.
And then yep, more Chipotle. The hospital loves giving Andrew Chipotle cards and we love using them.
When you can’t choose between chocolate and caramel or chocolate and mint… you go with both.
When we got home Skye changed into what she calls her ‘Valentines Day outfit.’
The Courage to Run was incredible. Please watch it if you get a chance…. Andrew and I both cried.
How long ago was your last race?
Who has a strength goal? SHARE PLEASE!
*I really want to be able to do a pull-up again.
How often do you run watchless?
If you could choose anywhere in the world to leave on vacation today (pretend that everything is safe:), where would you go?
