I have a NEW HRG BABY post! Talking about this last week of pregnancy and my plans for breastfeeding. Check it out HERE!!!
While I was on my run yesterday I was thinking about my running pet peeves and I thought I would share them with you today. Andrew also has a few of them to share!
*When you accidentally hit the lap button during a race on accident. I HATE when I do this because then my watch is totally off on when I hit each mile etc.
*When there is a long line at the porta potty in the middle of your race. This happened at our last race and we just wanted to get in and go on with our race.
*When you run through an invisible (okay, slightly visible) cloud of bugs.
*When your shoes are untied during a race= the worst. When your shoes are untied during a run = it takes too much energy to bend over to tie them. Rocks in the shoe are equally annoying.
*A huge diesel drives by you and you get to experience the lovely black cloud that it leaves behind.
*When someone takes your treadmill when you take a break to use the restroom at the gym… Even if you have all of your stuff on it and there are 4 other treadmills wide open! Yes, this did happen to me at our hotel last weekend. I had to go ask him if it was okay if I grabbed all of my stuff off of the treadmill ha.
*You are running on a trail and there is another runner and you just keep going back and forth passing each other… it gets me all nervous and wanting to just ask them if we can just run together:)
*You put your music on shuffle and for some reason it goes into the mode of playing ‘all of the songs you don’t want to hear in a row.’
*When my phone dies while running because it is too cold outside… HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO GET MY SELFIES AND PODCASTS?!
*You are so thirsty and looking forward to the drinking fountain up ahead (it’s all you can think about) and you get to the drinking fountain only for it to be broken.
*You almost step on a snake (or other scary animal) because then for the rest of the run your heart rate is 180 bpm.
*A bike whizzes right next to me when running and they are going so fast that you almost feel like you are going to fall over.
*Chafed nipples (I have never personally had this happen and I don’t even want to imagine the pain that goes along with this).
*When you trip on the sidewalk (he looked at me and laughed as he said this… he never has but I seem to do this often;)
*When the person you are running with doesn’t stop talking and you are feeling like you might die and can’t reply to anything they are saying (I think the situation he is referring to is when he is running with me… this may have happened at our last half-marathon;)
I’m not sure what’s going on here. Either my watch is broken and showing this 9:22 pace way too often or my body is beyond happy to be sticking at that exact pace most days each week.
I was doing better with my strength training last week and as of today, I have done zero strength training this week. I had my mat out and weights out ready to put in some work but ended up just laying there eating fruit out of a bowl. Andrew walked into the kitchen and was very confused by what I was doing. TODAY IS THE DAY… I’m going to do some strength training but yesterday sure felt nice to just hang out on the ground eating pineapple.
We made it out for a quick errand, Brooke in her pajamas still and me in my running clothes. We are quite the fashionistas around here.
It’s back and it tastes better than EVER. When I first introduced my grapes and cottage cheese combo I think I scared a lot of people by it but over time people have realized how good it is. I have received many texts and emails about someone finally trying it and saying how good it tastes. I forgot about it for a while until it sounded so good yesterday. Welcome back CCG (cottage cheese grapes).
A) I need to clean my sunglasses. B) I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch followed by a corn on the cob (with as much butter and salt as possible) as Andrew drove us to our Dr. appointment.
We had a doctor appointment yesterday. The kids beg to come… not sure if that is because they want to see the baby or because they know they have a bucket of suckers there.
PS WE FOUND OUT OUR BABY’S SEX yesterday afternoon!!! We are super excited to tell you but we wanted to make sure to get ahold of everyone in our family first to tell them! We will share it tomorrow morning:)
We did our Thursday night family night yesterday instead of today (I’ll be gone tonight).
My dessert last night included tortilla chips and salsa. My favorite current dessert (even though at 10 pm I tried to talk Andrew into waking up the kids so that we could go to J-Dawgs for hot dogs).
I hope your Thursday is a great one!
PS don’t forget to check out my new HRG Baby post. I would love any advice from you on this topic!
Last chance to guess… do you think we are having a BOY OR A GIRL!?! Share your biggest running (or working out pet peeves)… I love reading your answers! What is the most annoying thing that has happened to you during a race? Any cottage cheese lovers out there? What do you eat it with? Ever tried it with grapes?
