We were all drenched with sweat by the end of this run. It was the hottest and most humid day we have had this year in our area. My watch better tell me I’m at least 30% acclimated to the heat now.
I’m afraid I no longer know how to do a speed workout on my own. I was ready to quit one minute into the workout but didn’t because of my group.
6-mile w/u, 3 x 1-mile speed changes (100m FAST, 100m FLOAT ((not a jog, not all out)) with 1 mile of floats in between each one.
6:05, 6:41, 5:54, 6:44, 6:06
I sat on this rock for a good amount of time, contemplating what just happened once we were done… I fell apart during the last mile and kept slowing down with each 100m.
Give me long intervals alllllll day, but these short/fast speed bursts are painful for me. I did a short interval workout last Saturday and yesterday, so I’m proud. Maybe it will eventually turn into a strength?
Beck has learned to take dirty clothes to the laundry room. Brooke has also decided Beck is close to being ready to potty train;). Brooke (this was ALL her idea) fully potty trained Skye when I was pregnant with Beck and sick on the couch… it was during covid, so she was home all day and set a timer every 30 minutes for Skye to go. Let’s see if she can do it with Beck too!
We went to story time…
Along with the water park during Beck’s nap.
Sweet potato and black bean tacos for dinner!
Skye came up with the idea to add strawberries to hers.
And we were able to spend some time with Mer!

Parents—> when did your child/children potty train?
-Brooke was 3, Skye was 2, and Brooke wants Beck to be potty trained before he turns 2.
Andrew just finished Stranger Things… anyone else watching?
-It is too scary for me.
