Picture from Saturday with Kassi!
We had sunshine and clear roads for our tempo, and it felt like we finally arrived to spring.
16 miles on Saturday with a 6:02 average on my 10k (last year before Boston, I did this with a 6:06 average), so I was happy it was faster coming off of higher mileage this year so far. I pushed myself, for sure, but not full out like a race because Boston is the A goal, not the 10k time trial. Leading up to St. George this last year, I think I raced the final workouts and showed up to race day a little too tired, so I’m trying to learn from that and be okay with my workouts being slower than they were last fall. I’d rather show up a little underdone than overcooked in the slightest. Used my normal fueling strategy for this run-> HERE!
Monday’s run reminded me we haven’t arrived to spring:
10 miles @ 8:30 average.
I have many tangents today, so buckle up…
*What happens when a dog thinks a pair of alphaflys is a chew toy… Most expensive chew toy on the planet. Store these high if you have dogs or kids.

How did you get rid of the binky if any of your kids were hooked on it?
-Brooke didn’t have one, and Skye was fine to put hers in a new build-a-bear that we bought for her, but I’m not sure Beck will go for that idea…
When is spring break in your area?
Have you ever had Levain cookies? What are your thoughts about them?
Please give me a tangent or two!
