✅ 15 mi long run – tried the alphaFlys above! They definitely helped me go a bit faster with lower effort (as evidenced by HR). They fit, but I would not say they felt great! I had some pain under my arch while wearing them. It didn’t persist when I took them off (and my legs actually felt less tired in other areas such as Achilles/hips/knees) so maybe worth it, or maybe I need to try some different socks . . .
It was also the coolest long run I’ve had in forever (high 50s!) so while that felt amazing, it made the HR/speed variables a little harder to tease out. (LOVED not having heat as a limiting factor though – wish that was true more than 2 months of the year.)
❏ Kids gymnastics –> in progress. We (A + G + me) watched Stick It last night so G in particular was super excited to go, and then almost didn’t want to participate since we arrived 1 minute late ($(*&#@). Thank goodness she saw her school friend and then went in with glee. OMG kids sometimes . . .
❏ Library! As I resolved. The kids are on board too so that is good.
❏ Outline BLP x 1.
❏ Organize. ie get my home organizing efforts ON. Come on January energy!
Actually my January energy has been great so far. I think it helps that I am really *excited* about most of my goals + projects (umm, estate planning aside). I have been reading (My Brilliant Friend and a galley copy of Come Up for Air as my current nonfiction pick), leaving my phone alone, and even TRACKING TIME (maybe not as accurately as Laura, but still! And it has been at least somewhat interesting thus far).
❏ Possibly bowling because the kids are asking for it . . .
❏ Dinner out w kids. Where: TBD.
