Sunday = rest day from running. Brooke and I slept in until 8:30. That felt good.
Feel free to start clapping because I did a french braid in Brooke’s hair yesterday. A french braid on a one year old is not easy but we both persevered and made it happen.
You can kind of see it a little better in this picture.
I have reached a new low when it comes to cooking. I am now to the point where I am eating my Dad’s TV dinners for lunch. At least I supplemented it with some peas, wheat thins and a banana on the side.
Whenever my niece comes over she loves to pick out outfits for Brooke to wear. Yesterday she had Brooke sporting around her running skirt and racerback tank. Once Brooke can type I will have her start working on a full review of her Champions running gear from Target.
Just the usual family dinner at my parents’ house. Yesterday my mom made her meat/potato/carrot stew that I have eaten since I was 2 years old…talk about comfort foods.
Brooke and I actually went on two walks yesterday. One of them just the two of us and one of them with my dad, sister, niece and Maggie after dinner. I think going on walks will be my new thing to help deal with my situation because I felt so much better after my walks (I wish I could go on multiple runs a day but I have finally reached the stage where I am smart about my running and my body cannot handle multiple runs a day:)
I don’t know where she learns this kind of stuff from? It’s not like I am ever on my phone.
(My goal for this week is to actually use my real camera so that you don’t have to deal with blurry pictures from my phone like the ones I have been forcing you to look at lately)
Brownie with chocolate ice cream on top and a glass of milk.
While we are on the topic I saw this online yesterday and thought it was brilliant.
Looks like my mom and I are going to have an easier way to share ice cream now, I wonder if it would work with the 1/2 gallon ice cream cartons?
Say a little prayer for me today. I am meeting my coach at the track for a speed workout. I have a feeling that this will probably be one of my hardest workouts ever. I think he will be having me do 1200 meter intervals. Ouch.
What was the HIGHLIGHT of your weekend?
Do you have a set rest day each week or do you just take one according to how your body feels or what your life schedule is like?
