I LOVED reading your different running memories on this morning’s post! My sister got me to the gym to do some weights with her. My nephew was clearly enthused to be at the gym taking a picture with his mom and aunt. I’m sure he loved it.
We did this workout again. My sister enjoys making sure I get nice and sore after a weight workout. I don’t exactly get delayed onset muscle soreness from strength training… whatever I get happens right away and there is no delay about it.
First thing this morning Brooke went straight to Beretta. I can’t tell you how many times this last weekend she told us about how she missed Beretta. Good to be together again:)
I learned a really helpful tip/trick at my coaching clinic this last weekend (I learned a lot of stuff to help future clients and a LOT of stuff to help out my running too:). If we are running too close to the deck of the treadmill then we risk running differently than we would outside. We lose that forward lean from our ankles up (not from our hips) and our arms can’t swing forward and back as easily. Try putting a piece of tape across the handlebars to get you to move back a bit on the belt. It can help you to train yourself to run back from the deck a bit and then you can use your normal running form again! I’ve been known to run with my belly button up right next to the deck of a treadmill so this is really going to help me! Don’t worry… you won’t fall off! PS 7 miles today!
Brooke wanted to try walking behind the tape for a second.
WARMER MONTHS are on their way:) I think it is very important to make sure you are getting in some hot runs if you are training for a race that is going to be hot. Here in Utah, the races that I am planning on this summer start EARLY so I won’t really be needing to train for crazy hot race temps. On those days/weeks when the temperatures are crazy, I am all about catching up on my favorite shows while on my treadmill with my large water bottle full of ice and goodness:) I also don’t go running by myself when it is dark (aka the time that isn’t crazy hot in the summers) so if I don’t have a buddy to run with, my treadmill saves me again all summer long. Andrew will be in the hospital a lot more this summer so I’ll be chilling with the kids running around like crazy as I log my miles this summer! PS I was provided the NordicTrack X11i Incline Trainer and compensated by NordicTrack in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion. My treadmill is going to keep me running happy no matter what the temps are outside:)
*Brooke still doesn’t fit into the gold shoes that she picked out 1.3 years ago but that isn’t stopping her from sporting them today.
*We had a bunch of you recommend Guru Donuts in Boise. The old-fashioned was the best and they were all great! So many unique donuts there!
Candice sent me this very important donut glossary which I’m sure will come in handy for many of you reading in case you need to start drooling this afternoon:
*We hit up the library first thing today to stock up on library books and to get our Easter coloring going.
*Mel and I have met once before and we lucked out and were in the same classes this last weekend. Always fun to get to spend time with someone that is also passionate about running and sour patch kid strawberries. She made sure to get in the Roadrunner for our picture (we took the Road Runners Club of America classes;).
*A random selfie that I came across from last week.
*Brooke and Andrew hit up Chipotle yesterday while I was gone… they take advantage of when I am gone by going to my not-so-favorite restaurants that they love ha.
*Andrew has a little bit of reading to do lately.
*I’ve got to get ready for my coaching test (we went over pretty much this entire book this weekend!!!)
*After a weekend of being away from home… all my body could think about for lunch was vegetables. Roasted broccoli has made a strong comeback in my life. Sweet potato, ground turkey, tomatoes, broccoli and homemade guac with avocados that were the perfect ripeness.
Chipotle fan—> yay or nay?
