Let’s start back on Saturday…
Guys. I don’t know where my fire has gone. I had grand plans to do 15 miles with a significant ol’ speed portion in the middle, but then we all just got chatting, and I decided to scale it back to 3 x 1-mile repeats and 13 miles total. I’m wondering if it is because of traveling or being busier with the kids during the summer, but my fire for racing is a bit absent compared to how I usually feel. I was marathon training for a very long time, so I know that is to be expected, and I’ll do what feels good, and maybe when Lauren is marathon training again, she can talk me into doing it again;).
I hadn’t done strength training in a long time, so I did some outside on Saturday while Skye caught bugs with her net.
My Monday run was beautiful on the trails… It is so nice to be on the dirt again here after avoiding them in June because of allergies.
Let’s get into some random talk:
Brooke is finally home again. 9 days! That is by far the longest we have ever been apart. I’m okay never to do that again, but of course, I will when needed:)
My favorite quick lunch is pasta with cooked zucchini and squash, rotisserie chicken, some TJ’s bruschetta, and fresh mozzarella cheese balls—perfection in a bowl.
Beck is so into trains these days.
This is what things look like whenever I’m at the computer during the summer.
I have a feeling he is going to go far with his racing…
The best s’more out there!
My brother sent this picture of my family out the other day. I love that the lady in the back joined in:)
What about you… have the training fire in you right now, or are you more in maintenance mode?
-I think I’ll probably be in maintenance mode for the rest of the summer, but I do have a 10k soon, so I should probably get a small flame back for that;)
Have a quick lunch you love lately?
When is your next race?
If you have kids, what are some things they are really into lately?
