In case you missed out last week, the top most viewed posts were:
Can you believe that we will be in the month of MARCH starting on Friday (edited–> turns out March 1st is on Thursday… my bad;)?
A rest day after my first double digit run post-baby was just what my legs needed. I take my rest days very seriously and don’t even make the bed on Sundays because I know I’ll be back there a few times during the day.
Sometimes you just need to start the day off with some chocolate.
Andrew went to the first half of church and I went the second half.
And then it was back to Skye… She was already on her third outfit for the day. The amount of laundry done each week is quite remarkable around here. I can’t imagine how much laundry those of you do with bigger families!
Speaking of a lot of kids, my brother (they have 7 kids) posted this;)
Baseball has started so Skye joined Andrew in watching a game. Well, she watched the ceiling fan but I’m sure she enjoyed it.
For dinner my sister invited us over and made her famous bbq pizza (her recipe for this is HERE)!
Brooke and Knox eat their pizza a little unconventionally.
MY MOM MADE DONUTS for dessert and they were delicious.
A quality rest day and it’s time for HILLS today (if I dare run in the cold;)!
I’ve got a few Monday Matters to discuss with you today:
*Andrew sent this to my family’s group text message to show them how much he and Skye look alike.
*We didn’t have an official date night out so we did one at home. We ordered Crumbl cookies (if you are in Utah, PLEASE try these) and rented a movie.
We watched this movie and it was really good but probably the saddest movie I have ever seen… both of us were sobbing. One thing I love that they said was to ‘embrace the suck’—> Perfect mantra for our running!
*My friend posted this on Facebook and it is a story that a mom used for her daughter before she went to middle school. I’m going to use this with my kids now… such an important lesson!
*Amy Cragg did amazing in Tokyo yesterday morning… 2:21:42!! WOW.
*I’ve been doing some things each week to work on strengthening my pelvic-floor to prevent injuries and to help my running… if anyone else is needing to do this (go to a PT/chiro/doc ((I’m going weekly to Dr. Bennett)) and check out this article! I’m using moves from this video to help:
*After my run last week I sat down to write an email really quick and before I knew it Brooke brought over a little massager and started rubbing it on my back. She is a smart girl.
I’ve got another workout for you to try! This is especially fun to do on the treadmill (if you are anything like me and NEED to switch things up on the treadmill, try it)! I don’t have any paces written out for this workout but with each interval try to go a bit faster. You could try your marathon pace for the 5 minutes, half-marathon pace for the 4 minutes, 10k pace for the 3 minutes, 5k pace for the 2 minutes and mile pace for the 1 minute! Repeat 1-3 times and then cool-down. Play around with what paces you do for the intervals and let me know how it goes.
What is your Monday RUN?
What are some of the saddest movies that you have seen in your opinion?
-Only the Brave & PS I Love You.
Have any small goals for this week? I’d LOVE to hear them!
Please share any Monday Matters (aka randomness) that you have PLEASE!
