Motivation to start running at 5:06 a.m. = getting to run with Anissa. We ran for an hour together and the time flew by. Once I was done running with Anissa I told myself to just run at an easy pace and adjust my speed according to the heat for the remainder of the run and see how far I could go. I felt great the whole run and ended up doing 15 miles (it was slower than what my training plan had set for me but I am more than okay with that).
For the first hour it was raining a little bit which felt amazing but it turns out it makes your phone take very blurry pictures.
This part was sure fun. I should choose routes that have radars telling me my speed more often. I was tempted to throw some fartleks in and see how high I could get that little number (just like that Office episode).
Who does this? Who just has beautiful peanut butter and banana pancakes (bisquick pancakes with pb chips, chunky pb and a mashed banana) waiting for you to eat when you walk in the door?
My SIL does this kind of stuff.
They made Brooke’s morning too.
After a swim in their pool, some lunch at home and a shower Brooke went down for her nap with my SIL and my brother and I took my nephew to the movies.
We saw Despicable Me 2 and this was the first time that I have gone to see a movie since before Brooke was born. I think the last movie I saw in the theater before yesterday was The Hunger Games. I guess I could search my archives to find out the answer to that question but I am too preoccupied watching American Ninja Warrior with my brother while I write this.
Takeout with kids really is the way to go. Takeout from Pita Jungle (if you ever come to Arizona you have to eat there) makes it even better.
I had the Mediterranean Chicken Salad which hit the spot and some of that chicken pizza in the back.
And for dessert we made the easiest and most delicious banana bread.
I have a ‘climb on every single thing in the house’ child now.
Last movie that you saw in a theater?
Best thing that you have eaten this weekend?
Chunky or smooth peanut butter?
