We love to do completely normal things at 5 a.m.
You would think that the lack of sleep would make us tired and boring but no we always end up having a little too much energy.
11 miles total at an average pace of 8:15. It felt great to get the legs moving but they are not interested in doing anything fast until at least Wednesday.
We ran on the same trail that I did last week when I fell on the ice and hit my head. Talk about paranoid. I kept seeing phantom ice patches. My ice phobia is out of control now and luckily today I stayed upright the entire run.
I am really lucky to have found my running partner Josse because we have the same running goals and races up ahead which I think is going to be huge for me. We both have different strengths and we can help each other in those areas. We are also both moms that need to be home from our run when our kiddos wake up. 2014 is going to be our year. Now to just get Rachelle to move closer to us so that we can run every day together.
It has been like a whole week since I have been to Target?! Seriously.
This is Brooke showing me that the stuffed animal she wanted was only $3 and so that means that of course she needs it.
Most exciting purchase of the new year. Just a few days late but there is something about planners that make me happy. Yes I could put everything in my phone but I just like writing things down much more. I got a big one so that I can include my running notes each day so that I have a paper copy of how my training is going and what does/doesn’t work when it comes to my running (and things like fuel during a race, long run and what to eat before I run).
Mixing bowl salads with weird looking sweet potatoes are still occurring. My Runner’s World issue had a MOVIE in it from Brooks.
And a very important topic we need to discuss 11 Foods That Taste Amazing When They’re Frozen?
They included foods like York Peppermint Patties, Milanos, Reese’s Peanut butter Cups, mangoes, chocolate pudding and grapes.
I have to add to the list:
-Swedish Fish and Skittles
-My favorite Peanut Butter No Bakes
Do you use a planner or your phone for your calendar?
Favorite foods to freeze? Ever tried any from the list?
Who has found their running partner soul mates?
