And just like that, all of my rollerblading skills from the 4th grade have returned after a little bit of practice this morning on the sidewalk next to my apartment. I’ll be doing triple axels in no time.
The purple wheels make me love them just that much more. I think that rollerblading up the canyon is going to make my glutes super strong = these are going to make me speedy and injury free:) Best cross-training ever.
Brooke and I had a playdate after I did a quick elliptical workout at the gym. Heaven forbid I shower and wear real people clothes before 5 pm.
Brilliant kid idea: shower curtain from the dollar store and washable dry erase markers. The kids loved it.
We also booked our tickets for a girls trip for the weekend that Brooke will be with her dad in October… Allegiant flights were only $60 each way to California and we are staying with our college friends!!! The group of girls I will be with love donuts just as much as I do. It is going to be a real good time.
Salad bar leftovers made my heart and stomach very happy. PS peach slices in peach greek yogurt is recommended.
Brooke has been wearing her high heels all over the apartment today and I really think that we all need some light up running shoes asap.
I’ll be doing 20 miles tomorrow morning for my St. George Marathon training (THIRTY SIX DAYS)! I mentioned the other day that my feet were feeling really tight. These sponge bob golfballs (freeze them!) have been helping loosen them out so much. Mini foam rollers for your feet! I am noticing a huge difference already and I just roll them out when I am sitting down at the computer.
20 miles sounds scary. I am already preparing myself to stay in the mile I am doing rather than think about how I have x amount of miles left to run when I am out there. I’ll also be splitting up the miles between the treadmill, with friends on the trails and on the roads by myself (once it gets light out). I also am going to be trying something new out—> chocolate covered cinnamon bears for fuel starting at mile 4.
