Our Transform + He’s Dwelling + Boston Coaching Week #13 Recap!


(footwear, shorts, prime (comparable however solely accessible in XS now, it has a built-in balaclava), bra (I’m hooked on this bra currently))

We like having our runs deliberate months upfront, however this winter has absolutely made us versatile. We simply hit a brand new file for essentially the most snow recorded in Utah!

I wakened on Saturday morning and noticed that our roads had a layer of snow on them and determined that I used to be going to do the treadmill. My coach invited me to hitch them (2:2X marathoners) as a result of the roads had been higher had been they had been. I used to be terrified. I saved considering how a lot better the treadmill would go as a result of I wouldn’t need to push myself as laborious as going with insanely quick runners someplace I didn’t know the route. However I made a decision the issues that scare me are what make me a greater runner, so I acquired in my automotive and drove to fulfill them.

The proper determine 8 23 miler.

We determined to scratch the exercise as a result of the roads and paths had been principally clear, however there have been sections with ice spots alongside the best way. I advised myself my aim was to stay with them.

That yellow signal says, ‘camel crossing,’ which was a primary for me to see on the run.

We handed the place Andrew and I acquired married nearly seven years in the past! Simply behind these timber…
It was a stunning route that principally climbed the primary 16 miles after which dropped the final 7 miles. We climbed 1300 ft and completed with a 6:57 common. I used to be shocked that I may discuss the entire time with them and felt good. My legs had been drained from all of the hills and miles, however aerobically, it was a confidence-building run. I’m so glad I selected what I believed was the scarier possibility.

It was the proper run to nail down vitamin (a gel each 4 miles…BOOM!). I had water on the gasoline station and a few snow, however I didn’t do an important job with hydration.

I discovered my lesson final week having arms that had been too chilly to open gels.  So I wore these big gloves (I can’t discover them on-line anymore, sadly) with hand heaters. My arms had been so completely satisfied, and I may simply take my gels. I’ll convey these to Boston, simply in case.

My niece babysat, and I got here house to a tremendous gymnastics efficiency by Skye.
One other spotlight from the weekend was going for burgers with my mother and father.

Andrew was away for the previous few days on a guys’ journey! He was VERY missed by all of us.  We had been extraordinarily jealous of the climate he was experiencing in Texas!  He even got here house with a sunburn?!

He had the perfect time with an enormous group of pals since elementary faculty, consuming bbq, having pickleball tournaments, going to video games, {golfing}, and catching up with everybody. I made him ship me footage of every thing he ate; I want these tacos.

Let’s chat about our transform… This all began with wanting lighter flooring. I like the colour of our darkish flooring, however you’ll be able to see each canine paw print and piece of mud on them, and we had been over making an attempt to maintain them clear. We then determined so as to add wood flooring to a number of the rooms with carpet, repaint every thing, repair our hearth, add some built-ins, replace the moldings, lighting, and cupboards, and right here we’re… We will probably be shifting out quickly for them to maintain working. I want I had been extra like my sister and doing this myself, however I don’t belief myself… I’m positive we might do nice with the demo half however then get too lazy to complete it, ha.

This was us:

It’s actually for our marriage…
