That hurt. I really had to talk myself into getting up to do this workout.
I didn’t start until later in the morning so I decided to do most of the speed inside because it was so hot.
I copied what my running friends were doing at home—> 2 mile w/u, 2 x 2miles (6:15 average for first set and 6:11 average for second set) with a standing 3 minute recovery and then I went outside for 1 mile fast (first 1/2 mile downhill and then flat) @ 5:52.
9 miles total for the morning and it was one of those workouts where you are just there to check it off… nothing really exciting happened.
That fan below was saving me.
While we were in California I had a very embarrassing moment. I was riding the elevator down to the lobby to go for a run and I got off on the wrong floor. I realized quickly and jumped back on to the same elevator before the door closed. When I got back on I said to the other people that were on the elevator that I got off on the wrong floor because I was half asleep. A guy then said, “I really do think you are half asleep because your shorts are on inside out.” Yep, somehow I managed to put them on with the liner on the outside. I ran to the bathroom as quickly as possible ha.
I knew something felt weird when I put them on that morning… I need to start looking in a mirror before I walk out the door.
And now for some tangents.
*This little girl, she is an advanced traveler. She is always packed up (I’m being serious.. She packs her own bags when we go out of town now and I just check them before we leave to make sure she has everything) and ready to go before all of us are.
*We went to the beach! It felt like it had been forever since the last time we were there.
*Beck studied each grain of sand.
*Ice cream, fresh fruit and candy are the best things possible to have at the beach.
*Andrew’s nephew goes to school in Hawaii but was back visiting and joined us at Disneyland. Skye is obsessed with him and to have him there with her at Disneyland = pure joy.
*She also loved to have Brooke carry her around and I have no idea how Brooke can carry her.
*I miss Disneyland food.
*We have a City Select stroller that my cousin gave to us once her boys were too big for it and it is amazing. It reclines back pretty far and Beck has been able to have great naps whenever we are out.
*We left our house over a week ago with one binky and have been in a few different states since and we have somehow kept track of this binky the entire time. I lose everything else but this binky.
PS Beck has a special skill where he is able to keep the binky in his mouth when he sneezes! This isn’t a picture of him sneezing but it just reminded me of this random fact.
PLEASE SHARE ANY EMBARRASSING MOMENTS/STORIES THAT YOU HAVE! PLEASE!
I’d love to hear any tangents (even though it isn’t Tuesday)!
Tell me something delicious you have eaten lately?
What has been your motivation lately to get out and run?
