The absolute best time of the day—> when Brooke first wakes up in the morning and just wants to cuddle for a bit.
I was stoked today because my spin boss came to take my class this morning. If you live in the area and take spin classes then you know Rona. Everybody loves her classes and she is so entertaining. She convinced me in the first place to become a spin teacher 8 years ago. I used to take every one of her classes and she told me one day that I just needed to start teaching… so I did. I’ve loved it ever since. Also, on the schedule today was an easy 4 mile run @ an 8:05 pace.
PS I bought the above green tank after I fell in love with my first one (in orange). These tanks are so ridiculously light, you barely notice you are wearing it which is perfect for summer running.
My three favorite eats from today:
-A bunch of shredded chicken, avocado and poppyseed dressing (random but delicious).
-Cottage cheese and grapes. It is amazing how many people have doubted the amazingness of this combination. Once they actually try it they email me about how much they love it so long story short, just trust me.
With recipes like this I will probably be the next Pioneer Woman.
-It is a friend’s birthday today and I told her we could go anywhere to celebrate. She chose Swig for drinks and cookies and I would never say no to a birthday request like that.
I’m babysitting my little nephew today so we hung out in the shade while Brooke played in the kiddie pool.
I wanted to show you how detailed my coach is with my workouts. The OCD runner inside of me gets giddy whenever I open up Training Peaks to see my workouts.
Tonight we are going to Strawberry Days which is a big carnival that goes down in a town near us.
This will be Brooke’s second year going to Strawberry Days. Her first time there was when I was pregnant with her. This picture gave me a flashback to how awful it is to be pregnant through a really hot summer. I am pretty sure I lived in the pool during the day that entire summer.
