Just my brother-in-law spending time in their ginormous pine tree cutting each branch off one by one and then eventually cutting the whole tree down. The tree was starting to lean towards the neighbors house and a wind storm would have equaled trouble.
We really helped him out a lot.
Just a little hair static going on.
It has been a long time since my last fix. This is one of three meals (the other two being pizza and my mom’s lasagna) that I will never ever get sick of. Their strawberry lemonade is also kind of the best thing.
My mom has been part of the same book club for 18 years. EIGHTEEN. Last night they met at our house and even though I didn’t read the book I still got to enjoy the refreshments. Angel Food Cake should be eaten way more than it is.
Early morning at the gym and I hit up the rowing machine for 30 minutes. Man, this thing is hard. I feel like it hits every single muscle group and it really gets my heart rate up. I talk about the lovely benefits of using the rowing machine HERE.
And to keep up with my streak over the last ? years of running… I have gotten really into strength training now that I am not running. Maybe one of these days I will just do it year round.
Honestly, injuries used to really bum me out even if it was just a few days off from running. I would stress out about the fitness I was losing and obsess over it. Maybe it is because I don’t have time to think about it because the second I get home from my workout I am chasing Brooke around or maybe I have just learned over time that injuries are just kind of part of running sometimes (especially when I was getting up there ((for me)) with my mileage and speed). Of course I want to get better ASAP but I am just glad that injuries don’t ruin my day anymore like they used to. There is a lot more to life than running so taking a week off is not going to make me have a miserable week.
Added bonus… you don’t lose running fitness overnight!!! I’m sure with just a little TLC I will be back soon and run that marathon I have been training hard for.
