We decided to turn yesterday’s run into a group event indoors (I love running easy indoors but speed work indoors is not my favorite). It felt so good to have feeling in my entire body during a run, I was even sweating which was a very welcoming experience.
4.55 miles, 9:16 average, and 32 stops per mile.
Skye did a mile all by herself. I think it fuels her each time we tell her to jump in the stroller to go a little bit further.
She is an energizer bunny.
We cannot stop eating oranges over here which reminded me of the time I was googling if it was possible to eat TOO many oranges when I was pregnant with Beck.
Beck was very excited to start using Skye’s old power wheels to get around the house.
For the activity that I do with the girls in our area twice a month, we made these cute cookie bouquets.
Friday’s race might just turn into running in survival mode, I have no idea what the conditions will be like on the island… but this will turn it even more into an adventure and I cannot wait!
Just a few more random things to talk about…
I’ve already decided that after the race we will be driving straight to Lehi bakery. I have awarded them with the best donuts in Utah and I will stand by my statement forever.
*Erica sent this to me yesterday after I wrote about people telling me that I shouldn’t eat candy after a workout… turns out that Ryan Hall supports it;).
PS If anyone else has been following the Barkley Marathon or loves reading about it, this list of facts from A-Z is very interesting. It made me realize the entire event is even crazier than I thought. They aren’t even allowed to bring their GPS watch but I am jealous of the $1.60 race application fee… too bad every race isn’t that cheap!
Also, this is an interesting watch about Nicky (52 and a breast cancer survivor) at the Barkley Marathon in 2019!
Do any Utahns disagree with my best donut award?
Tell me what your run or workout is today?
What is the craziest/hardest part about the Barkley Marathon in your opinion?
Are most of your runs out and back, loops or a combo?
