In case you missed out last week… the top three most visited posts were:
Are you ready for another week? I hope this week is an excellent running/life/work/food/family week for you!
A Sunday sister picture…
That kind of reminds me of a Sunday picture of my older sister and me from back in the day!
Brooke might only be five years old but she sure does an excellent job as my sidekick taking care of Skye. Each week she is more and more interested in being a part of everything Skye does.
I didn’t make it into the Sunday morning family picture yesterday due to the fact that I had a nice layer of spit up covering my hair and most of my shirt;) But Andrew with the rest of his girls sure look great!
Skye and I hung out at home (I’m guessing from her facial expression she doesn’t always love my kisses) while Brooke and Andrew went to church.
Lots of cuddling occurred for three hours straight and it was amazing.
After church these two built Skye’s changing table!
And then yep, more cuddling… it’s going to be hard to go back to a normal life schedule again ha.
Last evening my family had a birthday party for my brother-in-law, sister and niece so Brooke and I went for a few minutes to celebrate.
MY MOM’S LASAGNA!! It makes an appearance at pretty much all of our birthday’s because we all love it so much!
We opened presents after dinner and my sister got a few of her dream presents including SLING… she loves Sling and it makes it so she can watch HGTV.
For dessert we had ice cream and these cookies that are another family favorite (they have cornflakes in them)!
He takes his ice cream eating pretty seriously.
Then we came home (and brought food for Andrew to these two)!
PS I am so happy that January 7th this year was so much better than January 7th last year. If you remember, last year we were at the hospital for my dad after he took a really bad fall on the ice and hit his head. You can read more about it here but he has had an awesome recovery from that this year and only has trouble remembering a few things anymore.
I want to start something new on the blog and include a workout of the week (plan on a new one most weeks:)! I’ll include all sorts of different types of running workouts for you to try out and please tailor them to your fitness level and for whatever distance you are training for! I’ll share workouts that I’ve done in the past, ones that I want to do in the future and ones that I think you might love!
If you are just beginning with speed work maybe cut the workout down and start with the six minute interval. If you are in need of more of a challenge you could base the paces off of your half marathon pace! PLEASE LET ME KNOW when you try one and how it goes for you. Keep me in the loop!
Who is currently including speedwork into their workouts each week? If so… what was the last speed workout that you did?
If you have a race this year… when does training for that start up?
Have any goals for your running this week?
What do you think is the absolute best type of cookie ever?
