I wanted to get in a long run but didn’t want to throw in any speed, so I had 15 miles of chatting with friends, and it was just what I needed.
The trail was washed out right when we needed to turn.
My friend Sarah (next to me) was in town, so she joined us. We met in 2010 (pre-blogging days) at a marathon when she casually floated by me during the final miles. We’ve been friends ever since. Running brings the best friends to our lives.
I finished up with a strength for runners class on the Peloton app (from 3/21), and goodness gracious, my right side is much stronger on these side planks than my left. I woke up so sore from this class.
And then we went to the farmers market. We could drink this frozen lemonade all day.
And Sunday, we were basically out front all day:
Beck’s favorite cousin is in town.
And sheet pan fajitas made an appearance.
I wonder how many hours this summer will be spent in the camping chair on the street…
I’ve been looking back on some things now that I know that I have asthma, and I am extremely excited to figure out two things…
This excerpt is from a race post a few years ago… This happens after almost every race and many workouts. I feel like I can’t breathe, and it freaks me out.
And I’m excited not to have purple lips because I’ll hopefully be getting enough oxygen during my workouts again:
My mom and many of my nieces and nephews have asthma, so when I told my brother (a doctor) about my asthma, he said he wasn’t surprised in the slightest. It will be interesting to see how running will feel, especially in the colder months of the year, because that is when I struggle most with breathing and wheezing after a run.
What was the best part of your weekend?
Do you have a farmers market near you? What’s your favorite thing to get there?
