Welp, that was a tiring 8 miles on the treadmill. Here is my issue with strength training: I love it (well, pump classes.. not so much on my own) but I do not love how sore it leaves me the next day. It just means that the day after I strength train I am going to be pretty tired and sore when I run. I guess the more I do it the less sore I will be right? And I am really banking on the fact that all of this strength work will help me be super speedy at Boston.
The reason I mainly run on the treadmill—> I have access to a treadmill where I get to watch Brooke play while I run and I love it. It is a bit of a drive from where I live but it is so worth it to me to be able to get in my run and still watch Brooke. I may have to jump off the treadmill a few times during the run to get her something or give her snacks but as a single mom—> you gotta do what you gotta do to still be able to run.
Brooke insists on going into the bathroom for their foamy soap afterwards.
The next thing on the schedule was a trip to Thanksgiving Point with Nicole. And this was the best selfie I could manage of the 5 of us.
Brooke was quite fond of the wind machine.
Just the normal chicken/avocado/feta salad with yogurt and nuts and my current favorite salad dressing.
Afterwards my sister-in-law, her little girl and my mom came over for pumpkin bread that I made at 11 pm last night. I had a sudden urge to bake really late at night so I did and I am glad that others could benefit from my craziness.
And just as I was writing this, Lindsey (an incredible wedding/family pics/nature/everything photographer) knocked on the door and delivered some gingerbread mummies.
This week’s spin playlist (I am so beyond obsessed with XO by Beyonce):
