A fartlek type workout on a Tuesday because we are racing on Saturday.
The canyon was chilly, which was exciting because I didn’t drown from my sweat, but it was also very cruel because it means summer is almost over, and I am not ready for that.
Ten miles total at 7:07 average.
This group keeps me motivated.
I went with the Alphaflys! My coach told me to try them for a bit longer run before the race to make sure I loved them, so I listened. They are amazing, and I felt like I was flying during the intervals. My only complaint is they are louder than any other shoe that I wear when my foot hits the ground… but maybe my steps will be like white noise during the raise and keep me calm;)
The highlight of their day was seeing a firetruck.
We started a new tradition where we take each kid individually to school clothes shopping.
She wanted sweet.
**Random thought of the day: Why you should not stress over what other people think about your race times/not hitting your running goals—> The people who don’t run usually don’t even pay attention to the numbers, they are just AMAZED that you are out there running. The runners in your life realize that everyone has good and bad days. So if you don’t hit your goal time, we all know that we have off days and that you will keep working until you get it. Long story short, nobody cares about our times! Keep doing what makes you happy and go after what you want without the pressure!
Any back-to-school traditions that you have?
Are chilly mornings happening for anybody else?
Tell me something you are thankful for today!
Where do you think the best French fry is from?
-McDonalds and I have very strong feelings about this. Chic-fil-A comes in 2nd place with their sauce being a must if eaten!
