Yep, I’m ready to be done running on snow. Seven miles @ 8:50 pace with some hills in the first half.
I miss our trails so much and will savor them so much this summer.
I jumped on the bike for a 20-minute class to finish my workout with a high cadence. This was also mainly done to heat up after freezing to death out on my run.
And 10 minutes of upper body weights with Skye;)
Book club was held last night… We read ‘Woman on Fire,’ which was so good.
I love the restaurants that this group chooses. Sol Agave for the win. I’ll be back for my birthday. The butter cake was unreal.
Let’s get to the tangents:
*Andrew has been so consistent on the Peloton, and it is paying off. He hit a new PR on this class, starting at 10:30 pm. I cannot understand how he does this at night.
*It’s so cold here now that we don’t have to make room to put things in a fridge. So just out in the garage works fine.
*On Saturday, we saw the BYU women’s cross-country team out on their run, which was inspiring.
*My brother, that is a doctor, sent this to me because he liked it a lot and because I’ve been struggling with this (I think… I get blood work done on Thursday with this)! It’s long, but the information is SO important.
*Did you know that sitting near something that radiates heat (radiates… not blowing hot air) helps with the production of vitamin d? So you can find me here every day now.
*On Saturday, during our challenging hill climb, right when I wanted to quit, an older man drove by and yelled out, ‘awesome job’! It’s amazing how much that simple thing helped during my workout.
*A friend running in the elite field at Boston this year reminded me of a little tip she taught me years ago. 3 x a week, she finishes up a run and then hops on one leg (fast) for one minute and then the other for one minute. She talked about how it helps her body to end with a quick cadence on tired legs.
I’m going to do this this training cycle… it burns.
*Runners know where every porta potty exists in their running areas. PS please note, Kodi is also in shorts, haha (I was too)…. 21° F.
*Even though there were cousins everywhere, Beck wanted to hang with my dad. They are best friends.
*I posted this on my IG story, but I have to share it here too. Andrew came out from the UPS store to the car in the best mood. The woman working there noticed the street we lived on when she was working on our package, and she said, “I know that street, there is a house on that street with the best Halloween decorations.” She was talking about our house and he was so proud.
*Skye requests raspberries filled blueberries often.
Have a tangent for me today??
