7 miles @ 8:33 average + 10-minute upper body strength. It was HOT for my run and so I am counting this as heat acclimation training. I need to be doing this often because my next race is always a hot one!
We picked Brooke up from her family reunion and it felt so so good to squeeze here again. We stayed and chatted with her extended family for a bit which was so great before setting out for a hike.
The two littles did not enjoy the hike after the first 21 minutes so we rushed back to the car to get in some air conditioning.
Roc Taco for the win.
Andrew and my brother went and played pickleball in 96° weather?! Crazies.
We hung out at my brother’s house and Beck got in his nap.
My brother’s neighbor’s do the best thing ever–> they give out free lemonade every Thursday. It brings the whole neighboorhood over to socialize and I want to copy this idea at home.
Let’s go over some of my favorite things from this week:
*Matt Wilpers talked about something during his Peloton ride that I loved… “Where are your eyes?” As you are moving forward on your run, pay attention to where your eyes are looking and how that influences your mind/speed/form. Are you looking down at the ground and hunched over a bit or do you have good posture while looking up ahead? Where your eyes are looking will help determine how your run is going to go!
*The best chips you will ever eat in your entire life. They are from TJ’s and I also need a full bag of the dill pickle chips. Thank you, Jess, for introducing these into my life.
*The best face mask you will ever use in your life. I don’t know very much about skincare (Courtney does and she is who recommended them) but never has my face felt as soft as it does after I use these masks.
*Need a big oversized shirt to go with some biker shorts? These are my goto and I have them in a bunch of colors.
*Skye votes that the I Am Lil puzzles are the best and coming from the current puzzle master, that means a lot.
Have any favorites from this week?
I need to know your #1 chip. I also need to know any other TJ’s finds I must try.
Do you enjoy puzzles? What size is your favorite?
Does your neighborhood/area do anything fun?
