A new Strava PR! Emilee and I set out for a run and we were not expecting to PR on the segment we were doing because it was so hot and humid but somehow we did it.
I used music for the hill push to help me get in the zone!
10.37 miles total with this hill in the middle. After not feeling great while running for almost two weeks, I needed this little boost and to see an improvement!
It’s always funny to me when something feels like it lasted 25 minutes but then you look back on it and it was only 5 minutes haha.
A friend of ours saw us as we were going up and I guess we looked pretty miserable and like we needed a ride…
I’m pretty sure I stood like this for 5 minutes once I got to the top of the hill (old picture)!
PS which way do you recover?
Straight to tennis spectating after my run.
And then swim lessons with some playing in the pool afterward.
After the pool I had the kids play in the play place for a few minutes and I had a flashback while we were there. We were at the same play place that I used to take Brooke to right after my divorce. I spent a lot of hours there watching Brooke crawl/run around while I tried to figure out how in the world I was ever going to heal and feel good again. I cried many tears sitting there back then (I would wear a hat and sunglasses a lot because I knew I would eventually be crying). It felt really good to be sitting there again eightish years later and to look back and see that it was all exactly what I needed to go through to get to where I wanted to go. Without the pain, we would never know the joy.
PS Beck has ZERO interest in cuddling these days. He is pushing himself away from me so that he can scoot around on the ground.
Great Harvest just felt like it was the right thing to do next followed by breakfast burritos at home.
Skye’s current favorite food is butter.
One of our absolute favorite people came over—> the person that takes care of the spiders and yellow jackets. He said he found more in our backyard than he has seen in one area EVER… so we will not be playing back there for a while.
Knox had a birthday party to attend and we were all kind of jealous of his birthday cake eating so we went to Yogurtland:)
Hello from Andrew!! Excited for a date tonight!
Who uses Strava? Who uses a different app to keep track of their running?
Do you use music for speed? If yes, what headphones do you use the most?
Are you a butter lover or not so much?
Tell me something you are looking forward to TODAY!
