My last run in St. George was a good one.
I’ve decided I’ll ‘officially’ (<–still not sure what that means ha) start training for my half-marathon next week once school starts so this week I’ll keep doing whatever my body wants to each day.
Yesterday I wanted to push the uphill on the trails and then cruise the downhill on the roads. The sunrise joined me for the run.
This up might not look like a lot but it keeps going and going. 630ft of climbing total over the 8 miles and miles 5-7 I averaged a 6:30 pace on the downhill. There is something to building strength on the uphills and trails and ending with fast leg turnover. Your legs are dead by the end of the trails so training them to move fast when they are tired is so awesome for training.
Skye came over and sat by me to practice for preschool. She is counting down the minutes for school to start.
And then we made our way back home… I even drove part of the way, which was a big accomplishment; I do not like driving on the freeway.
We consider only one stop along the 3.5 hour drive a HUGE success.
I was very excited to see that there was a package from Brooks on the doorstep. The Levitate 5… I have always loved the Levitate for their bounce and how they energize my runs, so I cannot wait to try the 5s.
THE SHOEBOX HAD A SCREEN IN IT?!?!
Skye was pleased to come home to a package on our doorstep with a sweatshirt that has Skye from Paw Patrol on it.
And to her pets… Our neighbors took great care of them;)
Beck’s latest hobby is finding a door and closing it as many times as he possibly can.
I saw this on IG yesterday and I loved it. Let’s see what can happen with our running…
Those of you in a relationship… Do you trust your partner to order for you?
-Yes, I am always impressed Andrew has my orders down. He is easy to order for because he loves trying new things, so I go with whatever he hasn’t tried before:)
At what point do you say a trip is too long to drive and you buy a plane ticket instead?
-I think 10-11 hours of driving is our max and then we will get a plane ticket.
What running shoes are you wearing today?
Are you following a training plan right now or doing your own thing?
