What I did the second I finished the workout portion of my run… it was a HOT one.
I went out later for my run than planned because Skye asked to cuddle as I was leaving and I couldn’t say no.
SO in love with the Brooks Hyperion Tempo, I have no idea how these shoes are so incredibly light.
When I don’t have my group to do speed with I just look back at what I did in 2019 and this was the workout (below) that I did the week after my 10k so I decided to do it this week too. It’s a short workout but it’s crazy hard. Yesterday I did the 1.25 miles @ 5:58 for the first mile and then a 6:06 pace for the last .25 miles. I did it on a flat road but the last portion was uphill so I was happy about that pace!
Constantly switching gears for this type of workout is rough for me but it keeps my brain busy which makes it go by really fast. I’m a big believer that doing short intervals of those really fast speeds can really help our marathon times. PS I just kept guessing when it was about 50m since I wasn’t on a track…
I cannot thank you guys enough for all of the help yesterday. I went to get a brace first thing and helped ease some of the pain. I’ll see someone when I get back if it doesn’t get better for a cortisone shot. Like always, what would I do without you guys?
PS you know you are obsessed with running when you are just glad it doesn’t stop you from running;)
I would definitely choose Viva Chicken for my last meal (along with a brownie sundae and my mom’s lasagna).
I think it is Beck’s favorite meal too.
And the other highlight of the day was swimming, of course.
Time for a few of my favorite things!
*TINKERTOYS! If I can find a toy that Brooke, Knox and Skye all love that requires them to use their imaginations… I am so happy. My neighbor had these at her house and my kids were over there playing with them for so long so I got some for our house and they are awesome. It is a 200 piece set!
*I know it is hot outside but I thought I would share my favorite joggers again for people like me that blast the AC all summer in their house so they still need something comfortable like these. $15! They come in a ton of different colors and they are so so soft. I love wearing them with either the Target Boxy T-Shirt or the Aerie Distressed T-Shirt.
*The best popsicles in the history of the world. They are definitely a summer favorite for me!
*This is just one of those very simple joy finds for me:) It’s a little sink squeegee that sits on the edge of my sink. We have approximately 34 spills a day on my counters and I just grab this and squeegee/sweep it all into the sink. It also makes it easy to squeegee whatever is in the sink into the drain too. You can throw it in the dishwasher too and I just love a cheap little tool like this that makes life easier.
What are your weekend plans? Looking forward to anything?
What was the last speed workout that you did?!
