I had some things this morning starting at 6 a.m. that went for a few hours so my run was put off until later in the morning so that meant I got to take the Brooker with me. I loved having her with me but man….how did I run with the stroller all of the time a few months ago? That is hard work.
We did 5 miles with an average pace of 8:17 with about 10 stops to pick up toys/things/everything that Brooke could throw out of the stroller.
Those purple PureFlow 2s are ready for retirement. As soon as I start feeling a little achy in my knees and calves I know it is time for a new pair of shoes.
I think I put on about 400 miles on this pair (I also wore them for my PR half-marathon) and I will retire them as my ‘shoes that helped me get through my divorce’….I am pretty sure the next 20 pairs of running shoes will be given that same title. Running means even more to me now than it did in the past. Those running endorphins are actually required these days for me:)
Celery with laughing cow cheese, you should try it. Rotisserie chicken and cereal for lunch. The real brand of FMW is so much better than the off-brand.
Maggie hasn’t said hello for at least a week. Anytime Brooke is within 30 feet of Maggie her little legs kick and she squeals uncontrollably.
I have written a lot about Amenorrhea in the past…like HERE, HERE and HERE…because I think it is extremely important for female runners to be educated on this topic. I struggled with it for a few years because I didn’t think it was a huge problem at the time and it resulted in femoral stress fractures. There is a lot of information out there on the topic but THIS ARTICLE is by far the best one I have seen out there. It isn’t normal for us to miss our periods due to low body weight and our exercise habits (not fueling them properly) so take care of the issue now and take a look at this article!
Who has ran with a jogging stroller? Who currently runs with one? Any double or triple stroller runners?
How do you know it is time for a new pair of running shoes? Do you track your shoe mileage or just go off of feel?
What shoes are you wearing for your runs lately?
Favorite source of protein lately?
-Rotisserie chicken. I love it.
