Never in my life had I been more excited than yesterday to get back to my car for my water bottle that I knew was full of ice and glorious liquid. I brought one tiny water bottle for the run, but it was nowhere near enough. I felt like I had cottonmouth for 90% of my run so gulping this the second I got in my car felt so good.
I met up with my friend Amber to do a Wednesday Workout. We did a 1.18 mile uphill climb at a hard effort where you gain 472 feet. Seeing this stop sign is the best because it means you are done putting your body through pure misery ha.
I was pretty excited because I improved my time for the segment from the last time I did it in March! My goal is to break 10 minutes eventually, and I almost did in 2019!
We then did a 1 mile downhill fast mile where you drop about 140 ft, and that I did in 5:44. It is so hard to get your legs moving fast again after all of the uphill. My friend Amber was lightyears ahead of me on both parts of the workout and I was thinking about how that kind of stuff used to bring me down. Having people up ahead can defeat us and make us feel like we aren’t enough, OR we can let it PULL us and inspire us to try to keep them in our eyesight:). It’s our choice and the second option will make us so much faster.
PS Amber’s sister (they are my coach’s daughters) was in the FINALS in the trials yesterday for the 3000m Steeplechase. The entire family is amazing.
Ten miles total for the day and I am finding that rolling out my back before I run helps to open up my chest for the run.
Did anyone else have one of these Giga Pets? Knox got one and it keeps reminding me of mine when I was a kid.
Not sure how long this was here before I noticed…
Andrew finished his first semester of his NP program. He has until July 1st until the next semester starts so we are ready to enjoy the next few days together!
We decided to go on a family trip and I’ll give you one guess where we drove to;)
You guessed it, St. George so we can eat at Viva Chicken.
Eventually Andrew and I may live here (when we are no longer sharing kiddos in tenish years:) so until then, we will just visit often! We have a lot of family here so it’s kind of the best.
Time to run around in the red rocks.
Have any summer travel plans?
Are you where you want to live long term or do you have plans to move?
Who else is in school right now? Anybody wanting to go back to school?
Tell me what your run is today!
