9.18 miles @ 9:11 pace with Jenn. In my opinion, keeping up with her on the dirt counts as a speed workout.
I always make her stop for a break at the top of the ‘three bears’ segment.
1,286 feet of climbing, and I’m proud to say I have not encountered any (live) snakes this summer (knock on wood). I’ve come across a tarantula this summer, but that is it.
The rest of the day was just a normal one. Summer has gone by way too fast.
Let’s get right into some tangents!
*My kids could live off of this from Trader Joe’s… luckily, it’s easy to add some veggies and protein into it too:
*Multitasking PT exercises while I do the girls’ hair.
*It’s incredible how Skye’s “injuries” increase exponentially when I buy the Bluey bandaids.
*Well, now I’m tempted to go for the ‘Desert Double’ medal.
*The last time I did back-to-back races like that was in 2013 with Summer Sanders in Pennsylvania. This was fun.
*My friend eating an Uncrustable at mile 18 of his 30-mile training run for his 100 miler in October. I barely made it to mile 18 on Saturday and kept thinking about how he had another 12 after I finished, which helped me not quit.
*We love Connor Mantz over here in Utah, so when I saw this, it broke my heart… He could have won!
Have any tangents for me today?
Have you come across any snakes on your runs this summer?
Is anyone else training for an ultra these days? Which ones?
