It felt like it had been way too long since our last run together (ehhh…. 5 days) so when Josse showed up for ten miles yesterday morning, I was really excited. We talked about our race plans and decided to train for a half in February together and get some speed back for it which made me really excited. We probably won’t start getting too crazy with it until after Christmas but I LOVE having a race on my calendar to train for and I’m happy she is in for it with me!
10 miles @ 8:11 pace on a flat road. For this race in February we realllllllly will be needing some hills in our life.
While we were out I got this picture of Beretta from Andrew. He told me that Brooke had set her up like this. Sounds like a good Saturday morning to me.
I got home to do some planks and Beretta decided to join me… 2 minute plank on elbows, 1 minute side plank on each side, 30 second plank on elbows (I was trying for another minute but didn’t make it).
The kids thought they would help me out with my lunges afterwards.
Another Home Depot trip but Andrew told us to just hang out in the car while he went in with the crazy crowds… hallelujah.
Cafe Rio because it had been way too long since our last trip there.
And then some grocery shopping because we are celebrating Thanksgiving with my family today. We are bringing two pies and two sides and Knox brought his game face to the store.
Thank you to whoever created these types of shopping carts because it makes the entire experience so much more enjoyable for everyone.
A couch selfie.
And an afternoon snack of chips and homemade salsa.
For dinner we kept snacking on chips/salsa and all sorts of random things and settled on finishing up with homemade sweet potato fries. We just toss them in olive oil and bake them at 400ish degrees until they are done. Perfection. Fry sauce (ketchup and mayo) and bbq for dipping.
We are going to be turning orange with the amount of sweet potatoes we eat each day.
We told the kids in the morning that we would stop at a play place for them to play and they made sure to remember 12 hours later:)
Definitely glad we got out there because they had the time of their lives. We feel really lucky that they get along so well with each other.
To finish off their night we did some popcorn and Christmas reading.
Then Andrew and I started prepping for Thanksgiving dinner tonight with my family!
I see a lot of pie in my future.
Do you plan out your racing calendar far in advance or do you play it by ear?
What did you have for dinner last night?
Any fun Thanksgiving plans this year… where are you going?
