Single Track Snow Runnings.

on January 25, 2018

Hi friends! How’s it going?? You made it halfway through the week 🙂 Woohoo!!!

Yesterday started out with a bit of snow! We were not expecting it, so it was extra awesome! Ken and I were up at 5:30 to ride the trainers in the basement for an hour. We watched the movie Deep Water Horizon. Intense!

Came up to some white stuff….

Since it was a workday, it was up to Brooke, Jasper and I to move the snow.

Uniform…

Complete with dinosaurs….

It wasn’t quite 20 degrees…so Jasper bundled up as well.

Ken went on a road trip today with some co-workers and asked me to whip up some cookies for the trip. Seriously, Toll House high altitude recipe. The best.

For dinner, we rocked a Sunbasket meal. We have enjoyed the service, though not quite enough food for the two of us. We eat a lot. Ha.

This morning, Ken got up to ride the trainer but I stayed in bed with visions of running dancing in my head. Since Brooke was going to be at ski lessons, I had plans to run with a mom friend. She ended up a bit late and had to be back early, so things were pretty short, but it was nice to get out. Jasper was incredibly excited about running on single track.

Got in about 3.3 miles before hurrying back to pick up Brooke.

Once we got home, I hopped on the treadmill for another 2.8 miles to get 6 for the day. The outside miles were tough enough on their own, but I really worked hard on the treadmill. Warmed up for half a mile and then did 1.5 miles at a 7:30/7:41 pace and then the last mile at an 8:30 pace to cool down. My legs will be tired tomorrow, but really nice to start working the speed…it has been a while.

Spent some time at the neighbors’ house loving on their Golden Retriever. He has some pretty aggressive cancer and it is absolutely heartbreaking. He is 4.

Home for dinner…anytime Ken will not be eating dinner with us, Brooke insists on zucchini noodles.

Now I am just trying to stay awake until 8:30 before falling asleep on the couch 😉 Speed work and training is exhausting! Have a great rest of your week!
