I’ve been staying up past midnight for the first time since I was 20 while we have been in Arizona;) The problem with staying up late here is that if you want to run, you have to still get out early or it is way too hot. I went at about 7 yesterday and it was already 70 degrees, it was quite the adjustment from our Utah weather but that sun felt so good. The defrosting is happening!
9 miles @ 8:26 average with 100 ft of elevation gain total—> SO flat and wonderful!
Utah needs some really great dirt flat trails that go on for miles and miles like these ones. They are calling my name for a tempoish type run on Saturday.
After I got back then Andrew went mountain biking. The scenery was a bit different than his usual rides. He actually met a group of guys there that invited him to go biking with them today. Andrew might never want to leave.
The majority of our day was spent here. We thought we would be going around more but decided that the kids are happiest at this pool with their cousins.
Knox was able to get together with his best friend that moved to Arizona. We surprised his friend and just showed up to where he was eating with his mom. Seeing their reunion was so sweet.
After we dropped off Knox we went to grab some Mexican food.
Andrew and I love to order a bunch of items on a menu and share them all because I hate the regret I feel when I feel like I didn’t order the best item on the menu. PS this was from Espo’s in Chandler.
Vanilla ice cream from QT afterwards is a must.
And then a whole lot more of this.
Ready for another day of staying up late, the pool and then we are going to go pick up CAKE SHAKES. They blend up the ice cream with a piece of cake and I’ll report back to you on how it tastes.
I don’t have a lot of favorite things from this week but I’ll share these three:
*This episode with Des Linden! It made me SO excited for her to go for the 50k world record next week! I loved hearing about her training, fueling and thoughts going into this race (date not announced but she said mid-April). Such a fun listen! PS she talks about a 26 mile run she does with 3 x 5 miles at her goal race pace and it made me exhausted just listening to it.
*These Bermuda shorts from Target! $20 + stretchy = I’ve already worn them a few times this week:)
*I shared this stuff last year but it is still one of my favorite things. It’s the Olaplex No 6 Bond Smoother and it makes my hair so so soft and smooth. It helps take away the frizz and protects my hair from heat. I forgot to use it one time after a shower a few weeks ago and I could tell the biggest difference in frizz/smoothness afterwards.
*Oh and if you missed my favorite summer running clothes post and you need some recommendations—> here it is!
When you go out to eat do you want your own dish or do you like sharing?
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
Vanilla, chocolate or swirl ice cream?
I feel like I’ve been hearing about and seeing some sweet reunions lately with people that haven’t seen each other for a while due to covid… TELL ME IF YOU HAVE HAD ONE PLEASE!
