Ten miles @ 8:19 pace with the girls.
I talked about this on my IG yesterday, but I find it pretty comical when I think about my morning thoughts vs. my night thoughts when it comes to running (ehhh, and most things in life). Before bed, I wonder why I signed myself up to run a marathon in 9 weeks. I wonder if I will possibly be able to make it through one of the workouts on my schedule and if I should retire and become a professional napper instead. And then, in the morning, my dreams get BIG. I’m thinking about new PRs and how many marathons are too many marathons to sign up for in 2024. The ups and downs are quite dramatic.
I’m very grateful that Andrew understands this about me, and reminds me of my morning brain when I’m telling him at night about how I am going to drop out of my next race;)
Speaking of races, I have a race in 18 days now. Run it with me, it’s in my favorite place to run–> Provo Canyon and you can sign up here!
Signing up for this race gave me a flashback to running the same course during August a decade ago. It was within weeks of filing for divorce, and I am pretty sure I cried for 10 of the 13 miles. I can’t wait to do it again a decade later after my whole world has changed since those days!
Back to the rest of our day…
There is no such thing as too many bubbles, in Skye’s opinion.
Brooke has the same opinion.
It definitely took Beck some time to warm up to the idea, but once he did, he was all about the bubbles.
Between marathon training mileage ramping and pmsing… I was needing a warm and extra delicious meal for lunch, and Thai was calling my name. Massaman will forever be my order at a Thai restaurant.
We then went to Sam’s Club, and Beck insisted on Skye carrying him.
I used the Sam’s Club pizza dough (sold at the food court frozen) for dinner to make pizza with tomatoes from a farmer’s stand. The difference between farm-fresh tomatoes and grocery-store tomatoes is quite startling.
They consider him their favorite jungle gym.
Been sipping on this daily to get me through seventy miles this week including two speed workouts and two days on the trails. Code: HUNGRY-RUNNER-GIRL will get you 25% off and free shipping HERE!
Do you notice a big difference in your night vs. morning running thoughts?
-Andrew is the opposite of me in the timing of these feelings, but he has them too with his biking–> Big goals at night and little desire in the morning.
Thai food… what is your order?
Who has a race, birthday, or anniversary this month?
-BROOKE TURNS 11 THIS MONTH!
