I started my run approximately 3.7 hours later than I normally do and it felt amazing to sleep in a bit…
As much as you can sleep in with a 5 year old ready to party first thing. So I guess it felt amazing to just lay there and not have to get up for anything in particular for a while.
I did the first 5 miles of my run on the treadmill and the last 3 miles outside with Andrew and Brooke. I set my goal for 8 miles and knew that was farther than I’ve gone in a little bit so I slowed down my paces inside (9:45) and outside (10:10) and that helped me to get a bit farther than I normally do! How I was still doing 1/2 marathons with Brooke at this point in my pregnancy… I’m not sure but I’m more than happy with 8 miles this time around!
43.2 miles for the week! Most of those on the treadmill and the others in the cooler fall temperatures (PS my mom and dad went on their walks yesterday and it was in the high 30s).
We took a few breaks along the three mile route.
Most of the breaks were for animal watching… they found a baby cow below.
Once we finished up with our run, Brooke and I hung out on the side of the road…
Watching Andrew racing Beretta. He had the head start (he would fake her out that he was going to throw the ball in one direction and then throw it the other way) but Beretta always caught up to him in about 2 seconds. Her speed amazes me.
I’m always amazed at her agility too… as she is turning her sides are like an inch from hitting the ground and yet she goes from this to a full sprint. I need a bit of her coordination too or maybe just a tail to balance on too;)
I woke up Saturday morning with the most sore shoulder ever. I kept trying to figure out what in the heck made me so sore or if I had gone to town on my strength training and worked out my left arm like crazy or something… and then I remembered I had a shot at the doctor’s office. I am pretty sure I dislike needles and shots more than the kids do.
From there we went straight to the Farmer’s Market with my mom! I think it was the last Farmer’s Market of the year…
I turned around at one point to see Andrew buying Brooke the largest thing of cotton candy that I have ever seen.
The next highlight of the day after a bunch of errands was lunch with some friends at Olive garden. You just cannot go wrong with their unlimited breadsticks, salad and soup (the creamy chicken gnocchi one is my favorite).
Always teasing Andrew in some way or another.
Just like I believe there is no such thing as too many pairs of running shoes, Andrew thinks that there is no such thing as too many Halloween decorations.
Brooke fell asleep to me rubbing her face. PS this is how I feel every night around 6 pm:
Enjoy your Sunday! I’ve got a rest day up ahead for me, a lot of good eating and I’m teaching the lesson to the youth girls at church today… We are talking all about how our words effect others! Should be a good one.
