It has been two weeks since my last treadmill run. I have been spoiled with all of my outdoor runs lately. When I am outside it is hot but I still get a nice breeze to cool me off. I was reminded today of how I overheat on the treadmill and had to sit with the fan 1 foot away from me afterwards.
My sis came to work out with me and all of the kiddos played some Skip-Bo while we were sweating. I LOVED card games as a kid and my mom and I would play at the table after school all of the time.
My good friend from California (JESS… the one that got married just a few months ago) and another good friend from Virginia (KARIM… she has the best instagram) were in town so we got together for some food of course.
We tried really hard to copy their picture but I think the kids pulled it off better.
4 street tacos for me. Two chicken and two beef and then the rest of Brooke’s quesadilla. When in marathon training—> no food left behind.
The kiddos then waited patiently for their main event.
Waffles with berries and fluffy whipped cream. Those three conquered that waffle.
***Random but if you are looking for a great list of running books to check out, HERE is one!
Also, 5 exercises to do before every run has some simple moves to try that will help strengthen those glutes!
You know that game where you say the very first word that you think of when you hear a word or phrase? Let’s try that out for running terms. I’ll tell you a running term and you tell me the first word(s) that come to mind when you hear/read that word. You can do just a few or all of them:)
