In case you missed out last week, the top 3 posts were:
Brookie and I made it to church yesterday! We still aren’t taking Skye there yet so I went to church for the first hour and then we came home and Andrew and Brooke went back for the last two hours.
Brooke had the spotlight in primary. I sure loved the answers to her questions! Andrew does most of the cooking around here and Brooke appreciates that ha:)
Our Sunday involved a whole lot of nothing but being lazy and it was perfect.
See… hours later and still doing the same thing ha.
We caught up on a few of our favorite movies to watch together.
And stuck to simple snacks and meals… this was the winner of the day.
And of course a few smiles from Skye!
Let’s discuss a few Monday Matters today:
*As you know (from her kitchen renovation post), my sister is amazing with her home renovations. The best part is she absolutely loves doing them! I wanted to show you her latest one… SHE HAS SKILLS!
*Andrew currently has a countdown until baseball season starts on his phone. He is just a little bit excited.
*Allison sent this to me… this means some days we get almost 1000 questions a day haha. Sounds about right!
*Ghirardelli brownies = heaven. This is the stage that Andrew would prefer to have his brownies cooked ha (he could just eat the batter and be happy) but we cooked them a little bit longer.
*A 5:29 mile just days before turning 72 years old… WOW!!!
*How I feel about running right now. It’s weird because running feels a million times easier than running pregnant but it is definitely hard to get back in shape again!
*I cannot wait to play outside today:)
I’ve got another workout to share with you that I LOVED (ps I am really excited to get back to speed work)!
For this workout you will base your interval time off of your current 5k pace! So if you run a 22 minute 5k, then your 5k pace is a 7:05 mile and that will be the pace you use to measure your intervals. Do an easy warm-up and then start off with 400 meters @ 15 seconds faster than your 5k time, followed by the recovery jog and then the mile @ 5k pace, a 3-4 minute recovery, 800 meters @ 10 seconds faster than your 5k pace, 2-3 minute recovery… You can go through those intervals 1-2 times and then finish up with your cool down.
It makes me SO happy when you tell me that you did one of these workouts so keep letting me know:) You’ve got this!
If you do speed… what days do you usually do your speed workouts?
Random question of the day… Red Vines or Twizzlers?
-Twizzlers. 100%. Always.
What was the best part of your weekend?
