Yesterday—> Church with the girl that convinced me to run with people!
I was a SOLO runner for many many years with a few exceptions (my sister). When I moved back to Utah 1.5 years ago she convinced me to join her and her running friends for some runs and I have been hooked on running with other people ever since. I take every opportunity I get now to join the girls.
Brooke was beyond thrilled to show off what she made in nursery:
It was 54 degrees out yesterday. Unheard of in Utah in January.
We made sure to take advantage and hang out on the grass!
My sis and her husband came over for dinner last night so I made two of her very favorites. Food is important normally but even more so when you are pregnant and only a few things actually sound good to you…
For our sweet potatoes:
Rub a clean sweet potato in coconut oil, wrap in tinfoil and cook in the oven until soft. I always eat the skins of my sweet potatoes and the coconut oil just takes it to the next level.
To go with the other good stuff… (they requested salads:)
And Zucchini Cookies!
Followed by a rousing game of make-believe veterinarian.
Boston Week #3 training!
Monday: Pump class & 1 mile (I thought I had more time to fit in 5-6 miles but it didn’t end up working out).

Friday: 6 miles @ 8:34 pace.
Saturday: 14 miles @ 7:58 average pace! OUTSIDE!!!

44.25 miles and a good amount (for me) of cross training. Trying to make sure to get some core work (i.e. planks, pump or 8 minute abs) in 6 days a week. Also, I have been trying these Hollow Rocks and they are killer!
My friend’s instagram post sure motivated me the other day… Get out there and work hard this week:)
What was your best run last week?
-Tempo on Thursday!
Do you eat the skins of all your fruits and veggies? Which ones do you not?
Are you more into—> solo running or group running?
-I absolutely love running with friends but I still love my solo runs where I just zone out and go…
