I get very excited when my friends are doing a workout that is part on the trails and part on the roads. The trails make us so strong and I love all of the muscles that are fired up and working when I run them (my post with reasons to run trails is HERE). I also love doing a workout this way because then you get to divide the workout up mentally and focus on one part at a time.
We stopped and stood here to recover for a bit after finishing a push up three big hills. After the trails, we got back on the roads and did 2 miles of one-minute fast and one minute easy.
Ten miles total with over 1k feet of climbing.
This was the first time I saw something like this. What a great idea!
I also saw some free snacks out along the way too haha.
Loving the Catamount a lot when it comes to trail workouts…Trail shoes that are light and fast! Picture taken after I already untied my shoes and was too lazy to tie them again.
Another swim day. I am really in love with indoor pools these days because it requires zero sunscreen.
Not a lot else happened but it was a great summer day.
And just a few random things before I let you go…
*I am very grateful for friends that are good at gardening. I failed last year with my garden, so I will rely on everyone else with a garden this year to get my tomato fix.
*Found a cereal I haven’t tried yet haha… not sure I will;)
*I love hearing my kids say ‘pause’ to whoever they are playing with when they need to run to the restroom or to get a drink or something.
*When you are so tired you fall asleep mid-sentence with Beck’s toy on you…
*On my way to meet my running friends, I listened to a radio show and they were talking about gift cards. The second Andrew and I get a gift card we use it. There have been times he calls me on the way home from work to tell me he got a Chipotle gift card that day and we go as soon as he gets home ha. The show I was listening to said that on average people have $113 of gift cards just lying around?! NOT US.
*And he is crawling!
*Have a happy Wednesday.
Gift cards—> Use them right away? Forget about them? Wait to use them?
Where is your favorite place to get a gift card from?
Do you garden? What’s in your garden? Favorite garden-fresh veggies?
