I went for the ninja look along with a power bun (<—It’s been a while since I’ve worn one of those)!
The group moved things to Tuesday mornings for speed workouts (instead of our usual Wednesday) which was a fun wakeup call for my legs that felt like they were still recovering from Saturday’s long run/tempo.
PS if it seems like I’m jumping into things fast, it’s because I am ha. I’m just having so much fun with it all, my body feels great and doing something hard in the mornings with my friends helps me to mom the rest of the day.
You know when you see these triangles around town (our coach put them there), you are about to feel some pain.
We received a fabulous compliment when an older woman was walking by us! She said, “You guys look like greyhounds.” She then went on to say that she meant what she said in a nice way but we all took it in the nicest way possible in the first place because greyhounds are fast and we want to be fast.
During the warmup I had to remind myself 20 times that the warmup DOES NOT predict the workout. So many times I have felt terrible during the warmup only to have an amazing workout that day. I felt terrible during the warmup and extra terrible during the first set of interval but then for the second and third I felt amazing.
2 x 2 miles @ tempo pace (6:25ish average for me) + 1 mile FAST (downhill & a 5:49) with .5-1 mile recoveries in between each interval set.
No time to stretch or shower because it was then time to get the girls to school. Both girls love to match each other so I’m just going to keep taking advantage of that until one of them doesn’t love it ha.
She may think that she is a teenager now but at least she told me she needed 3 hugs before school yesterday (and she still lets me drop her off at the door and not a block away because my socks and sandals combo is embarrassing to her;).
After I picked up Skye from school we went to the library. MD Runner, Carrie and Amy gave me the idea in the comments of yesterday’s post to get different books about insects for Skye to learn about what they do and how to stay safe with them etc:). We will conquer this fear of hers together.
I am out of my favorite freezer egg burritos… I didn’t have the ingredients (or the energy ha) to make a big batch of new ones so I just resorted to a boring but delicious egg burrito.
If hair is within a foot of Beck’s hand, he WILL grab it and pull it fast.
For dinner we made taquitos but the recipe wasn’t super delicious. The homemade salsa we made sure was… many chips were also consumed with the salsa.
And so was dessert…
PS I got this notification from the Headspace meditation app that we love and I thought I would share it with you too…
What is something kind that you are going to do for yourself today?
-Get in the hot tub with a drink and snacks while I stare at the stars once all of the kids are in bed.
What are you eating for lunch today?
-I just might need to stray from my egg burritos for a few days:)
What’s a compliment you have received recently that made you happy?
Salsa—> mild, medium, hot or you don’t waste time with salsa because you are here for the guac?
