Eight miles on the treadmill (8:25 average) and a hang out with my mom and the kiddos to fit in some errands to start the day off right.
Post-run snack immediately—> pb dark chocolate wins.
My 4th of July shoes will be worn proudly all year long (or until I put too many miles on them and then I will stop running in them and just wear them around town).
We ran around all day long doing who knows what which resulted in ice cream cones in which they ate three bites of and then ran upstairs to take out every toy there ever was.
Last night we headed up to Salt Lake City to go to dinner with my parents and Andrew’s parents. His parents live a little over an hour away and so my parents had never met them until last night at dinner.
The meal started off with large rolls and Brooke was the number 1 fan of all of the butter.
I had a crazy busy day with the kiddos and my lunch was weak/lame/not enough and so a burger was calling my name. The fried egg on top took it to the next level.
And then I finished off with a molten lava cake.
Brooke is still showing off her fancy nails to everyone.
Our view from the restaurant wasn’t so bad;)
Our parents liked each other! What a relief… I mean as you can tell my mom is hard to get along with (the most sarcastic thing I have ever said here).
After dinner we were leaving and we thought that our parents had all left too but nope… they were just out talking for who knows how long:)
A few random things to discuss before I get to the especially random information:
*I wasn’t sure about this Tiny Toast but then I tried it. It is amazing. I don’t know why I ever doubt liking something because I’m not very picky about food but Brooke and I both loved it.
*A picture from my snapchat video the other day. I accidentally told you the wrong name a few weeks ago (I’M SORRY!!!!!)—> you can find me at…. janae12345
Let’s be snapping friends. I think it is going to be my new thing.
*We all need cabinets that are filled with these:
*Andrew sent this to me. I have no idea why but I’m guessing it must relate to me somehow.
*Saw this tank (it’s only $8) at Old Navy and it is perfect. I think we all need it.
Okay, time for the TMI topic for the day. Feel free to exit out of this post right about now if needed;)
Let’s talk about birth control and running.
I’m trying to figure this all out and I would love your opinion, what works/doesn’t work for you and some help to figure out what the heck to do. My doctor warned me that it will be about a month or two until I feel completely normal again but as of right now my running has sure changed and I’m guessing it is because of the IUD. Running miles isn’t a problem but running fast feels awful. I had my highest mileage week last week but it has been about 3 weeks since I have done any speed. Whenever I speed up I feel completely nauseated and dizzy. Just me? Is it all in my head? I don’t know but it sure does not feel great at all and I’m hoping it is something that passes quickly. I think at about 2 months if it isn’t better then it will be time to try something different. I’d love to hear from you about this please…
I think I’ll just keep logging the miles and pay attention to how I feel and bring back the speed work (mainly just tempos for this marathon) once I’m feeling like myself again.
Feel free to add in any comments about birth control—> what has worked for you? How it affects your running? Side effects? Let’s just be wide open today about life. K thanks.
