Gloves this morning. I actually kind of like it when my body is cold while running but I do NOT like my hands to be cold while running. I don’t deal well with cold hands so my car is currently stocked with three pairs of gloves that are appropriate for three different cold levels. Today I used the light pair because it wasn’t too bad but still, they did their job and kept my fingers nice and toasty. These ones are from Costco… somehow that store has every item that I could ever need or want.
6 miles @ a 7:58 pace.
Thought about this quote a lot as I was running along…
Let’s rewind to 4 a.m. this morning.
3 little taps on my shoulder (for some reason that scared me half to death) and then a little voice said, ‘mama, can we take a nap together?’
So we did… well, one of us did. But it was kind of perfect because she will be gone this weekend and some extra snuggle time this morning was needed.
She was clearly into polka dots on her way in to gymnastics. During the warm-ups (they do some running) she was passing up all of the little boys and while I won’t ever pressure her to be a runner, you know it made my heart happy;)
Back to joining the girls for lunch sometimes.
Rice, chicken broth and applesauce… I do not miss you one bit. It is nice to have real foods again (it still hurts a little bit but not like it used to.. I go to the dr. tomorrow to check up on how everything is improving and any tips he has for me wahoo!!).
Pumpkin something samples for the win.
One of the problems that I was having with running leading up to the St. George Marathon was that I was just too weak because I wasn’t able to get the calories I needed. Luckily, I figured out pretty quickly one food that felt pretty good right before a run—> bananas (a little late to the game on that one). They are working wonders these days with how they make me feel energy and stomach wise while running. Brooke is a die-hard banana fan too so the two of us plow through these babies pretty quickly.
PS I made it to one of Megan’s bootcamp classes at the end of last week and I am still a little bit sore… I’m just going to go ahead and take that as a hint that strength training needs to become a priority again.
I hope the rest of your Wednesday is a good one… you can find us on the slides.
Parents reading—> are your kiddos pretty good sleepers? What time do they normally wake up in the morning?
You sore from a workout recently? What was it?
What foods work the absolute best for you before a run? Anyone able to eat ANYTHING before a run without it affecting your stomach?
Had anything sweet today? What was it?
