I’m not going to lie; running in the canyon in the dark is pretty creepy. The same sounds that I hear in the light, sound way freakier when I hear them in the dark. But I love being on this trail in the dark vs. the roads because I don’t have to worry about cars.
My friend, Jess, found these beauties at TJ Maxx for 1/3 the price that they are online. She loved them for our speed workout.
Oh, the workouts that make you feel dizzy and like you are going to lose your breakfast… that was yesterday. We did 14 miles total with 6 miles in the middle of 90 seconds ON/90 seconds easy. A six-mile tempo sounds so much easier to me than this type of workout. Those 90 seconds of getting to very uncomfortable paces burned, but it will help me in the long run. We ended up doing 13 90-second fast intervals. I have a friend training for Chicago (same weekend as St. George), and he is always about ten steps ahead of me, so it is nice to try to keep up.
We finished the morning with a 10-minute strength arms/shoulders workout with Andrew. Two minutes into this workout, both of our arms felt like they were going to fall off.
Beck requested a walk with the wagon.
Our evening highlight was making pizza at our neighbor’s house.
I was just about to start making dinner at home when they invited us for this… the joy of not having to make anything or clean up the kitchen is truly the greatest gift.
Their pizza is Beck’s favorite food. His appetite showed up for this event.
Andrew has completed the setup of all of his Halloween decorations.
I have a feeling that after our Budapest Marathon experience, we are going to need to do all of the marathons that City Sightseeing offers… They are going to get us hooked.
If you could choose any marathon from this list, which would you choose? Who has been to any of these locations?
How do you feel about running in the dark?
What’s your workout today?
