-I don’t know what we would do with ourselves during the hot summers if we didn’t have a pool in our community. This thing saves our sanity.
-This morning was a hair horns producing/sweat in my eyeballs workout. I did the same workout this morning as the one I did last Thursday but a smidge faster. I ended with 11 miles (on the treadmill) at a 7:25 average pace. My right hip is especially tight a few hours after finishing so I will be stretching and foam rolling like a champ today.
-Today was my first day using the heart rate monitor and I’m pretty stoked about it. I don’t think I have ever used my Garmin while running on the treadmill but I am now hooked. Between checking out where my heart rate was for the different paces throughout the workout and staying on top of my cadence (the 620 tracks cadence outside and inside:)… using my garmin on the treadmill is going to be the new normal for me.
It will take some getting used to as far as actually wearing a heart rate monitor. I’m sure my body will just get used to wearing it. I did take it off (it goes around your chest) the second I finished because I was kind of over wearing it by then but I didn’t really notice it for the majority of the run.
-I have two guy friends that bring us over an amazing meal once a month. One of them loves to cook and I love to eat so it is kind of the best. He made us the best ever teriyaki salmon and potatoes in the dutch oven. I look forward to this meal every single month. Next month I am going to make something… I don’t know how to compete with this stuff though.
-I just performed a taste analysis. I am comparing the taste of a real swedish fish to the swedish fish gum. The gum flavor isn’t as strong as the actually candy but man, it is dead on.
-Brooke experienced her first McDonald’s hotcakes on Saturday. Those things remind me so much of being on road trips with my family as a kid.
-A reader sent me over a link to s’mores inside a waffle cone and I am thinking this will be PERFECT for the 4th of July.
-As runners we need to keep those glutes and legs strong—> I found THIS AWESOME squat challenge in case you are looking for some help on how to get your glutes strong to help out your running!
-My nephew clearly thinks I am super cool. Also, the day he is taller than me… I will probably cry. Time is moving too quickly.
-Dirty feet, eating on the porch and a swimsuit all day long. The definition of a toddler’s summer life.
Have any Monday Matters to discuss with us?!
Any part of you right now that is sore or tight from running?!
Are you a fan of salmon? Favorite type of fish to eat?
Anyone else run on the treadmill today? How was it?
