I am over it. Over the winter and ready for warm morning runs. Okay, I feel better now for letting that out.
7 miles @ 8:18 average with about 10 x 30-second accelerations thrown in there to get the legs moving. While the race I am doing on Friday is a trail race with a lot of climbing, I really want to push the downhills and flats because they are very runnable trails (as long as there isn’t a ton of snow/ice/mud). I really have no idea what I’m ready for (something I miss about having a coach—> they give you an idea of what to shoot for), I am really wanting my average pace to be in the 7:XXs.
I realized a few minutes after getting home that I was walking around barefoot and painfree. I hadn’t done this since last September and I never thought this would happen again with how much pain I used to experience in my foot.
I got out the mat to do some stretching and Beretta thought it was for her…
The hot tub felt extra nice yesterday and I think it is time to just jump into a bunch of tangents.
*Packing my stuff for the race at Antelope Island is a bit different this year vs 2019…
2019… 25ks and 50 milers are quite different.
*I have officially made someone cry tears of joy over something that I have made.
I showed her the Classic Mud Pie that I had made to eat with her and the tears came ha. It was amazing.
*I’ve had the second treatment of laser hair removal on my underarms and bikini line. It stings just a bit but so worth it to not be shaving as much (I’m going to Mint Facial Bar in Lehi, we are working together and they will give you a discount if you mention my name).
*When the only bandaids you have at your house are Paw Patrol ones…
*This is weird. Never in my life have I had bruises like this on my calves and the only thing I can think of is maybe this happened from my speed workout? Maybe my shoe just kept hitting my calf and caused huge bruises?! I am so confused… has this happened to anyone else?
*I am already looking forward to the soup at the end of the race on Friday…
*Maybe the reason Skye thinks she is 16 is because she is always around my 16-year-old niece.
Ever had laser hair removal? Tell me about your experience!
Are you good about stretching? How often do you do it?
Dog owners… where does your pup spend the most amount of time?
What brand of running socks do you wear the most often? What running gear are you the most picky about?
