I fell out of the habit of doing planks again for the last few weeks so I got to it again yesterday. The kids did a fabulous job keeping me entertained for those LONG 90 seconds where it felt like time stood still:)
After they completed their planks (aka laying on their stomachs) they wanted to show off their huge muscles. NBD.
Andrew and I did our run together again. I had a tempo on schedule and was going to do an 8 mile tempo but then once I got to 8 I decided I wanted to do 9 like I did last week and see if I could beat my time. Last week 9 miles @ 6:51 average pace and this week I did 9 miles @ 6:45 average pace. Improvement. I usually choose my tempo workout to be around the pace I want to do on race day so hopefully race day pace will be faster now;) Sometimes I wonder if the treadmill is as effective as doing speed work outside but I have realized that as long as I am putting in a hard effort into the workout and seeing improvements, it is doing the job I want it to do.
1.5 mile warm-up, 9 mile tempo (without stopping… two weeks ago I swear I was stopping every mile for a break), .5 mile cool-down.
Saw Megan there while she was on the stair climber and I was pretty jealous of her Jurassic Park tank.
Below meal brought to me completely by Costco:) Bagel + rotisserie chicken + cheese + spinach + raspberries.
I’m sure Beretta really appreciates the makeshift scarf that Brooke puts on her daily.
We made it out to the lake to throw a few rocks. I love seeing the mountain’s reflection in the lake.
The tramp net is up and we are all happy about that! I don’t think they are ever going to get off of this thing during the summers.
The kids decided that playing steam roller would be the perfect activity for our family night.
Andrew won as the steam roller in case you are wondering.
For dinner we made a Chipotle style burrito bowl and it was so good and so filling.
We also had a few of these with salsa. If you haven’t tried hint of lime yet, try this now.
Andrew with two of his kids:
For the family night lesson we talked about gratitude (we are all working on this one:) and then the kid’s decided on getting a hot chocolate for our treat. Sounds good to me!
And popcorn late at night.
Happy Birthday to the most amazing Dad out there! LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!
I mentioned the other day that I would share a few of my favorite spring finds (I’ll be showing you my favorite spring finds from Thred-Up in a few weeks) so here ya go:
*Moto Leggings will forever be a favorite for me. Forever. They are so comfortable and adorable, take my word for it. So many great colors right now too!
*Just bought this anthem split-neck tee in selby stripe. I’m in love.
*Also, I just got this crewneck tee for my bday and it’s a current favorite.
*White skinny jeans are a favorite each spring for me!
How often do you plank? Have a specific routine… I would LOVE to hear what you do!
What are you doing for your Friday night?
How often do you the tempo run? They are a once a week thing for me lately and I’m liking it.
Favorite type of chips? Anyone else love salt and vinegar chips like me?
