Kaydi is operating a marathon in April, and so our schedules for an 18-miler collectively labored out completely. Thank goodness as a result of she positive pulled me for these previous couple of intervals.
She deliberate the route (it was beautiful), and we had the most effective time catching up on life after not seeing one another for a bit.
These trails listed here are one thing else, and seeing that snow on that mountain felt very weird on this space.
We began with a 4 mile w/u, stopped for water (I used to be really thirsty as a result of it was a lot hotter than residence), after which began the exercise. 7 x 1 mile quick (6:05 common for these), 1 mile float (6:59 common for these), 1 mile c/d. There was a fast rest room break and one other fast break to seize some stuff out (I introduced the fallacious shorts, and it was so annoying to not have my common pockets for lengthy runs).
It was difficult, however we did it collectively. It’s at all times enjoyable to have somebody to take gels with you on the identical time, and really feel horrible/wonderful/highly effective/exhausted with;). It was actually enjoyable as a result of our stride was very comparable, and so we have been in-step usually all through the run.
We then went straight to the bike park. Skye had been speaking about it continuous and was so excited. Earlier than she ever even bought on her bike, she fell on a cactus. Fortunately, she had pants and a hoodie on to keep away from most of the needles getting in her pores and skin, however she had a whole bunch in her palms.
The Instacare handled her like a princess. They moved her to the highest of the record as a result of she was in a lot ache, had a topical cream to assist numb the areas, handled her so effectively, made positive she was as snug as attainable and hooked her up with prizes galore.
And the ladies went for the oreo model.
The sunshine was so good for our souls.

Monday: 12.15 miles @ 8:04 common tempo
Tuesday: 9 miles @ 8:35 common
Wednesday: 17.08 miles @ 6:58 common (watch paused for 90-second restoration in between intervals)… the plan was 12 x 1k, however we took it all the way down to 10 x 1k as a result of we have been all feeling off (I’m guessing this has to do with everybody’s diets the day earlier than for Valentine’s Day of chocolate chocolate chocolate).
