Happy “Lose an Hour of Your Day” Day!

Anyone else tripped out by the fact that it was so light this evening? I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to be making lunch or dinner 😉

We had quite a fun week over here! It started out with babysitting a polar bear. His name is Angus and he is a giant animal. He was also terrified of the stairs. It took about 15 minutes to get him down.

He and Jasper love each other. I promise. Jasper is about 1/2 his size but he is still Alpha and what he says, goes. Don’t be fooled by the fact that he completely disappears under the giant fluff.

More pickleball fun…totally normal to wear your trench coat while playing. At least she was warm?

We hit up the pool afterwards to practice her strokes-she has tryouts tomorrow!

She takes recovery very seriously…hydrate and compress those legs!

We had an awesome time at our homeschool meet up-why not pull your friends around on an ice rink?!

Her first time on groomed snow for cross country skiing! Mine too!? Her form improved a large amount over the course of the 2 miles. 😉

In preparation for swim tryouts, we grabbed a swim cap. As you can tell, we are still working on figuring that one out! haha.

On Friday, I got in a good downhill workout. Ken dropped me off on the top of Rabbit Ears and I ran the 12 miles back to town. It felt really good at the time (my quads were not so happy about it today) and was so nice to be running outside in the sunshine!

Ken got in a long ride on Saturday while Brooke and I hung around the house. I got a short little recovery jog in just to get outside! Today we were back to snow/rain/yuck.

Workouts this week…

Monday: Off
Tuesday: 2x3k efforts for 7 miles total
Wednesday: 5 miles easy recovery
Thursday: Off
Friday: 12 miles with 7 at sub marathon pace
Saturday: 5 miles easy recovery
Sunday: Was supposed to run but quads were painful so 1.5 hours on the bike!

Looking forward to one more tough week and then some tapering!
