I’ve got 15 pictures to share with you from our Sunday together so let’s get down to business.
I’m always grateful that I pack a lot of snacks for Brooke to eat at church because I end up eating half of them.
The man made us these egg burritos straight from heaven for brunch.
We all took naps yesterday and it felt glorious (do naps make it so you can’t fall asleep that night?!? Not for me… )
Brooke spends about 40% of the time we are at my boyfriend’s house pretending she is also a chocolate lab. Her impersonations are dead on.
My mom put us in charge of making dessert for family dinner and we took her assignment for us very seriously by making two things.
I’ve got the best mixer helper this side of the Mississippi.
We made cake and also my family’s favorite ice cream dessert.
You could say they were excited to see us once we got to my parents’ house.
My sweet dad got to work on the barbecue making burgers for everyone. Their view from the deck is my favorite. My sister and I used to spend a lot of time on this deck when we were younger (my parents have lived here for 22 years and they better never ever move:)
4 beans on her plate. I’m not really sure why just 4 but I guess whatever floats your boat…
And he just reached the opening doors stage. My poor poor sister. But THOSE LEGS.
The second dessert that we made ——> funfetti cake. We love having options.
Dessert was eaten on the deck and somebody was happy about the sprinkles.
Ice cream cake—> (it tastes better than it looks) A layer of Oreo crumbs (mixed with a few tbsp of melted butter), a layer of hot fudge, cookies ‘n cream ice cream, whipped cream and Oreo crumbs on top! It’s always a hit (and my dad can eat it too because there are no eggs (he is allergic to eggs)).
And then you guessed it—> more time on the deck. PS if you are wondering… my whole family really likes him. A whole lot.
Last week’s training (I have another 1/2 marathon in 3 weeks, one in August and then a marathon in October)
Monday: 9 miles total —> Pyramid speed workout!! This was killer! Try it out:)
Tuesday: 7 miles @ 8:15
Wednesday: 8 miles @ 7:26 average. Progression run… started in the 8s and ended in the high 6s.
Thursday: 8 miles @ 8:06 pace.
Friday: 8 miles @ 8:25 average pace.
Saturday: 9 miles in the pouring rain @ 7:52 pace. It looked like we had been jumping in a pool in our clothes by the end of this run. A great adventure!
49 miles total for the week!
What was the best part of your weekend?
What is your weekly mileage around these days?
-I’m a huge fan of about 50 (give or take a few miles) miles a week and so that is right where I am sticking!
Favorite brunch foods?
Best run last week? Hardest run?
