Can I tell you about some really fun news?
My awesome Dadio has lost 26 lbs!!! He is rocking it. He is doing the bike every morning and writing everything he eats down (see his little notebook in front of him). I am so proud of him!!!
Brooke photo bombed the picture with her foot.
My sister and I dropped Brooke and Curly off at my parents’ house this morning to babysit so that we could get a run in.
Let’s just say it wasn’t either of our day for running. It was really hard and there were just a few mandatory walking breaks that I enforced.
I have a VERY easy time getting frustrated when I am out of my ‘normal’ running shape. It really is so easy to compare your times/mileage to where you were pre-injury. Whenever I do start getting frustrated about losing fitness (I wrote a post HERE about how much fitness you lose when you take time off from running) I force myself to start looking at it as a challenge to get faster and think about where I am now instead of where I was. Make sense?
I think the altitude may have a little something to do with this whole wanting to walk instead of run thing.
I can’t even begin to describe how awesome my girls lunch was. We have my mom, grandma (Mer), sissy, cousin, curly and Jarooke.
My sister recommended the turkey cranberry salad and I trust her with important things like this and she was so right. It came with turkey, onions, mushrooms, cheese, cranberries and balsamic vinaigrette. You also get as many free slices of bread to sample as you want at Kneaders and the cinnamon raisin bread was incredible.
Some of us just wanted to eat the butter.
Where are you in terms of your personal running shape? Your best… medium… working on getting back to where you were?
Mom’s reading: do you have anyone that babysits for you sometimes to get your run in?
How was YOUR run today? How far?
Last kind of salad that you ate?
