HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
I was excited to end my 2016 running year with a great run with Josse. I was a little nervous about going out in the crazy weather yesterday but I missed Josse a lot and we needed some quality time on the roads together… even if that meant our eyelashes froze over and any hair that was showing during the run turned white.
It felt very strange to blink with these icicles.
It was very strange to me because 15 degrees yesterday didn’t feel so awful which was a nice feeling when I got out of the car after worrying about the 15 degree thing. I’ve had much colder runs happen in the 20ish degree range but I think it was because we had ZERO wind the entire run. It was foggy (inversion… Utah struggles with this) and cold but not really so cold that I thought about it during the run. After the run I definitely felt the cold though ha.
According to my findings yesterday, wind is what kills me during a run, not so much the temperatures.
Four top layers (a tank, two long sleeve tops and a jacket), two tights, a head band and two pairs of gloves (the picture below is my attempt at showing you my double gloves) with a hand warmer.
Even the trees looked cold yesterday morning… kind of like they had goosebumps. Eleven miles for the day and around an 8:20 average. Oh and luckily, their wasn’t a lot of ice on the ground which is something I do not like because of my fear of slipping again while running.
A nice warm shower felt beyond amazing after yesterday. I didn’t want to get out.
I realized when I got home that we were out of waffle mix… so for the first time ever (I think) I made my very own mix. And it was excellent. It tasted like a cake with syrup as the frosting so I am guessing we will probably be using THIS RECIPE often.
These raspberries taste better than candy. I know. That is a bold statement for me but I will stand behind it.
We decided to take the kids to an indoor swimming pool to swim around.
Mother of the year over here forgot the bag with all of our towels at home so that was a fun experience when we got out of the pool and had to run to the car with wet hair and wet clothes.
Not the prettiest looking meal but it was an amazing dinner. We eat everything from these bowls ha, basically we just throw a bunch of ingredients in them and call them a meal. Ground turkey (cooked in Yoshida’s sauce), lettuce, sweet potato, corn and tomatoes.
Beretta hoping/wishing/dreaming that Andrew would share some of his candy.. not going to happen.
To finish off this post, I have 8 pictures from our New Year’s Eve last night!
What did you do for New Year’s Eve?
Did you stay up until midnight?
What food do you think you ate the MOST of in 2016?
How often do you go swimming for exercise?
-I should probably lap swim more often but swimming around with these 4 year olds felt like another workout.
