I'm so giddy about the skeleton font. lol
This week I also realized that I have had an increase in fitness!!! It's been freaking hot and tough a lot of the time these past months, but now it's motivating to see it is starting to pay off. I had a solid 20 miler last week, and this weekend my 15 miler was the best.
15 miles: 3 mile warmup + 8 at race pace (9ish, still TBD) + 4 cool down
I am listening to Christmas as I type this. KELLY CLARKSON.
Funny. Bentz has been waking up between 5-5:30 lately (WTF) and yesterday he woke up before I left on my long run. lol!! Poor Ben. He did not look amused about sleeping in until 5:30.
So they surprised me on my route! I was in the middle of my set so I didn't stop which now I think was dumb. I should have stopped for my sweet fam.
Having Bentz wake up at the butt crack of dawn means I had to tempo run with the stroller for the first time, instead of the 'mill. He's pretty dang cute.
It was super cloudy and suuuuper nice out.
We've started doing some downhill sprints at "moderate effort" to prepare our legs for some of the downhill and I think that's what aggravated my IT band, plus coming off the 20 miler a couple days prior.
If you go to FINDHILLS.COM you can see the grades of your route, or find a hill to train on.
This week I also obtained my throw-away coat from Goodwill's Halloween 1/2 off sale. $7 WELL spent. I am excited for the leg warming this one will have in comparison to others I've had.
And finally our post run breakfast and Jamba. I love my family!
Who knew you could write so much about running.
Have a happy Halloween!!
