8 miles @ 8:34 average while listening to the Armchair Expert with Woo-Kyoung Ahn and her research on Human Thinking.
Next up–> some upper body strength, stretching (see below yoga class) and an ice bath. My legs were in extreme need of ice followed by the hot tub. My hamstrings don’t get as tight as they used to (I think that strength training has helped with that so I use my glutes more for the work) but they still need some extra attention when my mileage and speed get this high.
Beck and Skye both couldn’t believe what I was doing but my legs were so much happier afterward.
This month we used the recipes from The Girl Who Ate Everything, which was delicious.
I brought the fresh corn, avocado, and tomato salad. I highly recommend it!
Let’s move on to some favorite things:
*Every food combination that includes basil, tomatoes, mozzarella, and balsamic glaze.
*My current favorite yoga session on the Peloton app. He does the perfect stretches for runners.
*I need to tell you about the perfect cheap top one more time… I love it in white. Also, I have had these Levi’s for a while, and they are a favorite too. When I am reaching for jeans in my closet, these are the ones I grab most often. They aren’t stretchy so order true to size!
*Brooke’s favorite gift from her birthday… this kit to make hand-stamped jewelry. She has made necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and a key chain.
