Happy FRIDAY! I’m SUPER HAPPY THIS WEEK IS ALMOST BEHIND ME (can’t you tell how excited I am with the ALL CAPS?!?). It has been struggle-city with Alex away, extra stress at work, extra miles on the training schedule, and just feeling a bit crazy in all regards (aren’t we all? ; ) ) . On the plus side, it’s been the PERFECT running weather here finally (at least in my book)
Also still really loving the AfterShokz Trekz Air wireless headphones (get a discount for them here). I had my tempo run yesterday and had to wear wired headphones —> it makes me wonder how did I ever function without bluetooth headphones for so many years?!?
I am trying to get in extra GOOD wholesome calories while my mileage increases and homemade pizza dough (from this cookbook) with Pesto, Mozzarella, Zucchini, Black Olives, and Broccoli really hit the spot.
I’m re-reading Deena Kastor’s book (here) and feel like I only want to read 10 pages at a time because it’s SO GOOD. I loved this part about how she began to nurture herself. I’ve got some nurturing myself planned for tomorrow morning —> Getting up at my normal weekday time (5am), driving to Steamboat (where it isn’t quite so crazy hilly), running 28 miles on a few roads that I know will be pretty quiet, getting in some strength at the gym, soaking in the hot springs, and going somewhere delicious for a post-run meal (thinking a sub somewhere sounds good). I’ve also reserved a few books at the library, so excited to do some reading this weekend!
I’m also really excited to follow along on the MS Run The US Relay this year - it starts TOMORROW! Find all of my old recaps of my relay segment here.
Also: this is what I woke up to this morning - what did you wake up to?
Ways you love to nurture yourself?
What did you wake up to this morning?
Favorite last recipe you cooked?!? —> I need something new to try!
