Embrace the Hill.

It's finally Friday, which means it's Follow Through Friday AND its finally date night for me and the hubs!!!
We are going out to dinner and to see Jim Belushi and Larry Joe Campbell tonight.

To say I'm excited would be an understatement.
The hubs and I will seriously binge watch According to Jim on our days off even though we have seen every episode a million times.
The two of these guys together is going to be awesome.

Today is also my first day home with the kids on Fridays... which means I had to rearrange my long run again and bust it out last night.

This morning I feel....
I haven't really had any lingering soreness after any of my long runs and I'm pretty sure it's due to the massive amount of foam rolling I do after runs.
This time I used plain water and Clif shot gels.
I need something else in my water. I  am going to stick with Nuun.
I also didn't love the gel.
It wasn't horrible but call me crazy I think I prefer the shot blocks.
So I'm going to stick with those two for the rest of my training.
They are both easily portable and I like them. So bam.

As usual for Follow Through Friday

Here is my vlogggg for you all.
