Another Workout Wednesday accomplished and it felt sooo much better than it did the week before.
My group isn’t starting marathon training until March so they’ve stuck to 3 mile workouts for the last few months. Yesterday we did a 2 mile w/u and then 3 miles of 1 minute fast and 1 minute float (slower than the fast but not a jog/recovery) and then a 4 mile c/d for 9 miles total @ 7:30 average pace. I was able to keep up with a few of my friends for the workout which felt so good because I love the strength you get from working towards a goal together.
I was HOT running in shorts and a tank top (and it was dark for a lot of the run too) and it was 35 degrees… I’m guessing it’s my hormones being crazy.
Our c/d was around BYU which is where I went to college… so many good memories:)
Senita Rio (I wear the 3.75” inseam) shorts for the win. They have the best side pockets on them. I wore them for my last two marathons and they don’t move at all during the run, they are great. These amazon ones are very similar to them too.
PS wear shorts if you want to wear shorts regardless of how you think your legs ‘should’ look. Cottage cheese is normal. Just go and have fun in what feels comfortable.
And then it was off to the normal morning things…
Sometimes the only way for me to eat an entire meal without interruptions is if I do it in the car with Skye and Beck in their carseats while we are parked and listening to the Lion King soundtrack.
When Skye asks a questions she says, “Mom, can I have a jelly bean. YES!” In her brain she thinks that she can trick me into saying what she wants me to say by answering the question for me quickly.
Also, she is on her way to a black eye, she slipped and hit her eye on the stair:(
My sister invited us to go use the gymnastics gym with her family yesterday (we had the whole gym to ourselves)!
I married a genius… when you need your Rhodes Rolls to rise quickly, just put them by the fire while you are gone.
And of course to go along with above rolls, we had tacos ha. Definitely not a normal combination but both tacos and rolls are amazing so why not eat both at the same meal?
Do you like wearing running shorts or not so much?
Knox just told me that he really needs to know what your current favorite food is?
What is something new that you have learned recently about running or life?
What are you making for dinner tonight?
