It was crazy hard for me (not because of my mouth but because the first workout back always feels like it is my first time ever doing speed).

Would love to hear some of your practice workouts for the elementary school team! I’m an elementary school cross country coach as well and am always looking for new fun ideas to keep them enthusiastic about running.

HEY LAURA! I love that you are the coach at the elementary school… you’ll have to share your favorite things you have found with me. I have a full post going up on Monday about it! Keep me updated on how things are going and have a beautiful day!

Sometimes I miss those busy activity filled days. Exhausting, but so fun.
I did a 45 progression run with Becks yesterday, then jumped right into the Barre class I’ve been doing. It was fun, but by the end of class, I felt done! I was amazed at how fast that 45 minutes went though! Another reason I love the Peloton app.
I’m glad the salmon was good for you. Such a good protein.
Have a great Wednesday!

Oh I bet you miss it sometimes but you also still have SUCH busy days! Way to go on the progression run (Becks runs are so challenging for me) and the Barre class! They really make workouts even more fun. Thanks friend, you too!

Today was the first really hot run of the season-wow that was tough! Can’t imagine how I’m going to get used to marathon training in the summer but I guess it will happen just like every other year :) Speaking of salmon-you tried the salmon cakes in the first run fast cookbook?? Those are so good!! Well worth the time it takes to make them and they are soft too!

Kristian Blummenfelt races like an absolute MONSTER, that’s how he did it. I was at olympic distance worlds/the elite triathlon grand final in Rotterdamn in 2017 and saw him running. He ran the entire 10k like it was a 400m race, I kid you not. It’s wild.
