I spent time with one of my oldest and dearest friends this morning—> the treadmill. From the years of 24-27ish I am pretty sure I only ran on the treadmill unless I was actually running a race. I love running outside the most but I also don’t mind the treadmill that much and so I decided to take it indoors today.
2 miles @ 7:54 pace
10 minutes on the spin bike (mainly climbing a hill out of the saddle because that is when I feel the burn the most when using a spin bike)
2 miles @ 7:40 pace
10 minutes rowing machine (that thing never gets easier)
1 mile @ 7:30
Afterwards I stretched for a long time because this workout killed me off. I think I worked out for a total of 60 minutes all of last week so it felt good to get in a good, sweaty workout today. I love workouts like this one because it is fun to switch things up and as I am building back up my mileage and endurance again I will be including a bunch of cross-training.
All of the sudden Brooke’s hair is going curly?! We got to see Paige for the first time in way too long and hang out in the kiddie pool.
A few people asked about fruit and my 21 days of craziness that I am starting… I WILL BE EATING LOADS OF FRUIT. I am not doing any sort of cleanse or cutting out all sugar, I am just wanting to get out of the habit of eating treats/candy/dessert all of the time so those are the things I will be cutting out.
Sweet potato, chicken with avocado and carrots (cooked in the crockpot because I think my parents would disown me if I turned on the oven when it is this hot).
I am very mad at anyone and everyone that I hung out with over the last few weeks that didn’t tell me about the hole on my backend in my favorite pair of jeans ever. I guess this is what happens when you wear the same pair of pants 4-5 times a week for over a year now. Off to go get a patch because I am not letting go off these pants just yet, when you find YOUR pair of jeans you just have to stick with them as long as possible.
If you are looking for an inspirational runner (who keeps things real) then you need to check out Caisa! Her quote today on instagram was exactly what I needed to read.
And I am positive I couldn’t push a triple stroller for more than a block… and she is pregnant with baby #4!

PPS I came across this gem last night. I don’t remember how this happened but I remember it hurting.
Have you been using the treadmill at all this summer? How many times a week?
What did you have for lunch today?
Curly or straight hair?
-Straight as a pin.
