And taking it on the road. Most of this week was spent getting ready for our upcoming trip. It was its usual slog. And why did my dentist appointment have to fall a couple of days before we left? How about the moment I was afraid I’d lost my license (I didn’t)?

Although the heat is on again, the humidity isn’t, at least it wasn’t for this run. But that sun was sure beating down on me and had me wishing it was just the 4 miler I thought was scheduled, rather than five. But as usual, it got done.
6 x 400s. I can’t say as I looked forward to it, despite the nice cool weather — but the cloud cover made a huge difference and I actually nailed my paces (except for the first repeat). Not only that, in the past I’ve needed to walk more than I should to recover between each repeat, but I didn’t today.
Not that I’m ever going to find 400s anything less than hard.
There are truly lovely trails at a park near my MILs & I sure appreciated lower humidity, although WA was having a heatwave too!
I talked my SIL into taking me to the East Lake Samamish Trail, which was great. I even got to see Mt. Rainier when I got off the trail for a bit.
Favorites of the week
Those 400s on Wednesday — such a confidence booster. I really thought the run would suck but I nailed it (if you throw out the first repeat).
Getting out of Dodge! Okay, the real fun doesn’t start until next week, but even having the break from furkid duty — even if I miss them — feels good.
There have already been a few desserts, I picked up Garret’s popcorn in the Chicago airport, & I leave you with just a few photos of our shenanigans so far.
Let’s get the conversation started:
Are you able to pack the night before a trip & not stress?
How long is long enough for you at your MILs?
Does your dentist make your next appointment at your cleaning — even though that’s 6 months away?
