Well, I kind of woke up yesterday hoping that the roads were too icy to do speed but they weren’t ha. I knew what the workout was (one of my least favorite ones ever..) and so I told myself a lie to be able to mentally peel myself out of bed to meet the group.
A selfie and a watch picture all in one…
I told myself that I was only going to do 60% of my normal effort for a speed workout. Sixty percent sounded doable, anything higher than that sounded too hard.
It got me to the starting line which is why lying to myself about my runs and what I am going to do on my runs before I do them is acceptable to me:)
We first did 1 mile fast downhill (5:58 for me with 148 ft loss) and then a recovery jog to a 1.2 mile push uphill (about a 10:05 average pace for me with 502 ft climb) and then a recovery jog to 1 mile fast (5:54 with 148 ft loss).
This workout is so challenging and I definitely pushed myself way harder than the 60% I told myself I would when I woke up.
At the top of our climb… when you see this stop sign it is the biggest relief because that means the climb is over:
I was in the shower about 20 seconds after I entered the door because I was frozen and then we had our normal morning and afternoon.
Beck is so content just watching whatever Skye is up to…
If she stops playing to talk to him he is ALLLLL ears.
These breakfast burritos that we freeze (and we just reuse the bags each time we make a new batch) save me multiple times a day. I will either have one for a snack or two for a meal. Andrew takes them to work all of the time too.
The snow was just too good to not go skiing and in the middle of the week the resort is empty compared to the weekends.
For dinner we made another recipe from this cookbook—> Mexican Spiced Black Been Hashbrown & Eggs. Hit. The. Spot.
Erica told me yesterday that eating a bowl of cereal before bed helps her to sleep better so I followed her example…
What lies do you tell yourself when it comes to running?
-I often do the one where I tell myself I’m just going to go run for a mile.
What is a food that you eat pretty much every single day?
-Eggs. I eat a lot of eggs.
Tell me something you are grateful for today?
What was the last snack that you had before bed?
