"I forgot you were here."

Brenna

I’m THAT quiet.

I set an alarm for 7 this morning. So early, I know. 

When I didn’t want to get up, I promised myself sbux if I actually ran my miles. 

After 3+ miles, I grabbed some coffee and had a little reading date with myself on the porch.

I laugh at myself when 6 miles is my long run because not too many months ago, 6 miles was a short weekday run. 

I’m definitely getting acclimated. You can tell by my heart rate. 

But it was definitely a hot morning that had me seeking shade whenever possible.

As I was heading out the door, I met my neighbor! She couldn’t get her key to work (it was a copy). I offered our wd-40 and it worked! First encounter and I was helpful. Winning at the kind Utah life!

Then I ran.

It’s getting easier, but I still feel heavy-legged. I assume my blood is nice and thick from all the extra red blood cells being created. But hooray! Faster!

The big trip of my day. 

I came to Barnes and Noble to look at a book, but it is not on the shelf. I could ask for help, but that would involve asking for help. 

At least I took a nice walk??

Today was such a productive day for Utah Jess!

Brenna graciously let me use her car again.

AND I FOUND A PIECE OF FURNITURE THAT WORKS IN MY ROOM! It needs some tlc, but for now it is perfect.

More errands and then home to tidy and organize. I was on a roll. My closet is almost to my liking. I’d still like a small bookcase for the books we brought and two small nightstands and maybe even a little comfy chair for one corner of our bedroom.

Roommate took me for a short bike ride to show me more of the neighborhood. It was fun and confidence building. I’ll probably bike a little more tomorrow and maybe even practice my commute on Thursday or Friday.

And then I ran. 30 minutes tempo. I don’t really know what my tempo pace is right now. I just ran hard without letting my heart beat out of my chest. I stopped a couple of times for traffic lights and a high heart rate. But if we don’t count those breaks…

30 minutes
3.7 miles
8:06/mile

Lots of good things today. Still love living here! But it doesn’t feel real yet…
