Hello from us. Time for some Monday Matters.
-8 miles at an easy pace on the treadmill. I played around with the incline to pretend like I was running a course with hills outside. Afterwards I went into the aerobics room to do my Post-Run Power Exercises.
These left my legs shaking. The more powerful we get our legs to be, the faster we will be. Explanations (and videos) of all of these exercises HERE!
Those jump-ups during my third time through the exercises were evil.
-Brooke figured out how to take screen shots. Now anytime she plays a game on my phone I find close to a trillion photos just like the one below:
-She is also insisting on having her easel right next to her whenever she eats (below is a sandwich, not brownies although now I am craving brownies after looking at this picture).
-I decided to conduct an experiment on which almond butter I like better between crunchy and creamy.
I think the picture does the talking.
-Just digging up some fossils.
-I was in the checkout line and saw tic tacs. It has probably been a decade since my last tic tac purchase and so I decided to give them a try again. These ones are good but orange will forever trump any other tic tac flavor.
-My latest Women’s Running article about fueling during the race HERE!
Such a happy face I have below.
-My favorite Martin Luther King Jr. quote:
“I have decided to stick with love… Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
This quote helped me a lot over the last 1.5 years when dealing with my divorce etc.
Do you have a favorite MLK Jr. quote?
Have you figured out your fueling when racing or are you still working on it?
Crunchy or creamy almond/peanut butter?
-Creamy for almond butter and crunch for peanut butter.
