It’s race week! I’ll do a small speed workout today to get the legs moving again and then take the next few days easy. My 10k is on Saturday and I think I will take Friday completely off because my legs always feel so fresh after a rest day. I’m starting to feel a bit of the pre-race jitters which feels brand new to me since it has been so long since my last race. It’s been over 1.5 years since my last race which is the longest I’ve gone in between races since I started racing!
9 miles @ 8:07 average. First half of the run uphill, second half of the run downhill… just the way I like it.
I listened to this episode from Rich Roll during my run. IT WAS SO GOOD, listen if you get a chance. Also, Rich Roll was in my area yesterday running with the Ironcowboy! He completed #92 of the 100 consecutive Ironman distances he has set out to accomplish.
Of course we picked up this below goodness for lunch—> An entire meal that makes us all feel good and feeds everyone (we always end up with some leftovers too) for $24. We get the whole chicken, sweet potato fries, arroz chaufa and solterito. If you ever visit St. George and skip going to Viva Chicken, I’ll be kind of upset with you (they have vegan options too)!
Over the last few days Beck has become super wiggly and he is obsessed with the pool and splashing/kicking the entire time.
I found Brooke’s dream candy. Brooke and Knox LOVE banana flavored candy (which I can’t understand) and so this bag spoke to her soul.
We ended our day by going to the St. George running store. I love visiting different running stores when we are traveling.
Remember the show, Supermarket Sweep? I want to play that game in a running store.
We somehow managed to exhaust the three year old that seems to have endless energy.
Let’s chat about some tangents!
*A Snickers pancake is a wonderful idea and one that I will be creating at home now.. This was from Hash House a few days ago.
*I am the most high-maintenance sleeper. I forgot my sleeping mask and I CANNOT fall asleep without one on (I like the light pressure on my eyes ha) but luckily I remembered my running headband because that worked perfectly.
*What the shoe situation looks like with 7 kids at my brother’s house:)
*I love this summer bucket list from here!
*I still cannot get over how much he loves the sand. It was shocking to me to see him attempt to eat sand the entire time we were at the sand dunes.
Who has a race this month? Who has a birthday this month?
Taking any summer trips? Where?
High maintenance sleeper or not so much?
Banana flavored candy.. yes or gross? What candy do you find absolutely terrible?
