Fast Friday

I can't tell if this week dragged on or if it went fast. We were busy this week with a lot of different things so here's the recap of a few things we did.

Saturday was my long run and it was warm. I made sure to stop at all the drinking fountains I could while running.

Then we spent the afternoon playing with a total of 8 kids at our house. To some that is a normal thing, to us we are used to just our 3. But we had fun playing outside games, running through the sprinklers and having popsicles.

On Sunday we got to go listen to my cousin's homecoming talk. She's been on a mission in Oregon for the past 18 months and we are so happy she's home! We went over to their house for waffles afterward. I should have taken a picture of my waffle but it was gone pretty quick because it was delicious. My Aunt has an awesome recipe for them.  I did take a picture though of all the contraptions my uncle has made lately. He's an illustrator of some awesome books, but he likes to build little gadgets in his spare time.

Trevon wasn't feeling well on Monday so he stayed home to rest and we decided to clean out some art drawers at our house so that next school year we will have room for the new projects.

V decided to take some artistic liberty on his face while we were at that task. He got into the stamps and made sure to stamp his eyes and all over his legs.

While Trevon and V rested for the afternoon I took the girls swimming. It was fun to have someone on one time with them.

This girl has improved so much in her swim lessons this year.

Tuesday I came home from my morning workout to a spider hanging in my face. It wouldn't move and my hands were full and I didn't have anything to smash it with, so I just sat there for a minute waiting for it to leave.

I did a lot of meal prep on Tuesday and made some granola again finally. This is one of my favorite breakfasts/treats ever.

Wednesday was errand day. The girls had swim lessons so I took V to the store while they were swimming. He fell asleep in the car and normally will wake up when I move him but he didn't. Then when I got done shopping he stayed asleep while I put him back in the car! He was one tired boy!

My run Wednesday night just about killed me. It was 96 degrees when I went out at 8:00 PM.  My GPS stopped tracking me halfway through, my brain was tired and giving me a lot of negative mind games, my left calf kept getting a twinge, and I was super dehydrated. Bad runs happen sometimes. I still hit my paces pretty close to what I was hoping and I finished.

We've been going to the library a lot lately and I checked out this book. There wasn't one in the adult section but I found one in the juniors section and it was really good! Does anyone know if they're different at all?

Here is what my workouts looked like this week:

Saturday: long run ---> 9 miles at 9:00 pace

Sunday: Rest day

Monday: easy run --->4 miles @10:00 pace

Tuesday: strength training

Wednesday: Tempo Run ---> 4 miles @ 8:30 pace

Thursday: Strength Training day

Friday: Speed work--->3 ish miles

Total miles for the week: 20

When was the last time you had a hard workout that you felt like you weren't going to make it?

How is your training going? Who's training for anything specific?
