Nine miles total for the morning with strength in the middle <— that makes those final miles tough because my legs and glutes are D.O.N.E. after strength training. I think this method will help on race day because it is training me to keep going even though my lower half is not wanting to continue moving.
Also, I’m up to a minute on my planks which I am very proud about because a month ago 20 seconds killed me. It’s easy to get discouraged when we have to start out really small with things but we all have to start somewhere and those little efforts add up!
That sun comes up fast and strong in St. George. I stopped to fill up my running handheld bottle a few times along the way.
While I was out I heard my name (something I love about aftershokz… you still hear everything around you!) and turned around to see my nephew. He was at work mowing lawns and we were able to catch up for a bit.
Predictable but the pool is everyone’s happy place.
Beck and I just floated around for a while.
Viva Chicken happened… seriously, if you ever visit St. George and you don’t eat at Viva Chicken while you are there (they have vegan options too) then we are in a fight;)
And then I was really excited because I found a cool local place for turquoise and jewelry (M & S Turquoise). Left with some new earrings!
Finished up with all of the Olympics watching. I am so amazed by these athletes that can run back to back races as they compete to be in the finals.
Let’s talk about some favorite things from this week.
*The other day I walked into Megan’s house and I could not get over how good here house smelled. She showed me her candle and I went home and bought three. It smells so so good and it’s so cheap for a candle. My house smells amazing right now.
*My nieces teach me about the greatest things. If you love ice cream and haven’t tried this one, please do so today.
*I recently decided that if I had to choose one T-Shirt to wear for the rest of my life, it would be the All Yours Tee (lots of color options.. the one I am wearing is busy but they have the basic colors too) with the Love Crew in a close 2nd place. Nothing is softer and these t-shirts last for years and years.
T-shirt with 8” biker shorts and I’m set and comfortable.
Chocolate, vanilla or swirl ice cream?
Do you currently have a gym pass?
Before a run do you brush your hair?
-Never but I am wondering if I am the only one on this one…
Tell me about a small improvement you have made with your fitness?
