I’ve got a new BABY update HERE! 26 week update and comparison problems!
A wonderful treadmill run Wednesday morning. I have officially started wearing capris while running and my chafing skin is loving it:) Pregnancy has made my skin so sensitive and I chafe like crazy (I feel like I’ve tried everything) so I’m just switching up between capris and shorts instead of shorts every day and that is helping!
I hit up the treadmill yesterday for two reasons: It was really smokey outside (I don’t know if you can tell from the picture below) + I wanted to get in my run before the sun came up.
The three fans that keep me from overheating during the run. I’m very grateful for them. They work miracles.
7.5 miles total for the day (my longest run in a little while by .5 miles)! I go back and forth on my final decision of whether or not the treadmill is easier than running outside. Maybe it just depends on whether I’m personally having a good or bad running day. I used to do most of my treadmill runs at a 1% incline (unless I was doing short/fast intervals) but now I’m using a .5% incline.
PS if you are in need of some KILLER workouts to do on the treadmill… I’ve got A TON of them on this post HERE!!!!
A morning hello from Brookers—> I’ve had quite a few nicknames for her over the years and I’ve already started coming up with nicknames for our new little girl. My current nickname for Knox is Knoxo Knoxo Man (sung like the Macho Man song because he loves that song).
Turns out Knox was pretty excited about his new Michael Jackson movie:) He said it was his best day ever.
We then set out to get a bunch of things done around town with the kids.
I think we are going to have to start decorating now for Halloween… the happiness that Halloween brings Knox is amazing.
I was really craving an acaí bowl. It tasted just as good as I had imagined for the previous 10 hours.
But then I was still hungry and we weren’t going to be home for a while… TACOS.
Finally we were home and all ready for some couch time with a good book about Timon and Pumbaa.
Thank you family for dealing with me at night when nothing sounds good but something super simple:)
The first candy corn of the season, kind of a big deal over here.
I wanted to hear who is training for Chicago or New York this year! My goal is to do all five (I’ve done two so far) of the World Marathon Majors someday:) I love this course comparison on elevation and this post HERE (an awesome blog) is all about the Runners Choice Awards for each of these five marathons. According to the post (along with many more awards!), Tokyo has the best course fuel (like tomatoes!?!) London has the best crowds, NYC has the best course, Boston was the most emotional and Berlin is the best for a PR!
PS who is signing up for Boston!?! I will say I am quite tempted to but 2019 might just have to be my year!
I wanted to share with you today two quotes that I saw yesterday and ABSOLUTELY LOVED.
One last reminder to check out my latest BABY UPDATE!
Who is training for the Chicago or NYC Marathon right now?! Who has done any of the World Marathon Majors? Which one was your favorite? Would you agree with the choice awards given to the different races?
Who is going to be signing up for Boston 2018?
Who has a treadmill set up at home… where in your house is it? Do you have a bunch of fans too?
What were your nicknames growing up?
-Babycakes and palm tree head (both nicknames from my dad) and nae-nae.
