I HAVE A NEW SKYE UPDATE—> 7 Months & Why I Stopped Breastfeeding… I probably overshare, like usual.
It was so humid (for Utah at least… it was double what it normally is in July yesterday morning) that my running photos all turned out blurry because I don’t think my phone knows how to handle any moisture in the air;)
8 miles @ 8:33 average pace and a speedy workout on the schedule for today.
This podcast. So good. I listened to it during my run yesterday. Finding Mastery had Des on and the conversation was so much different than I was expecting and very different from anything I’ve heard with Des. I felt like I was sitting in her therapy session listening in on everything.
A few quotes that I loved:
“Remember your why, when things get hard you have the decision to bail or you can tap into your why. In can be a million different things… think about the things you sacrificed to get there and remember why you signed up. Use that to fuel you.”
“Pain is why we change and uncomfortableness is why we grow.” <— seriously love this so much and I will be thinking about this during my fast 1000m repeats today. The hard/uncomfortable stuff is the refiner’s fire and it takes us to who we want to be and what we want to accomplish.
“The thing I understand the most is… myself.”
Save this episode for your next long run or something where you really need something good to listen to!
I took out a pair of the PureCadence 7s for a spin. Lightweight + supportive = yes, please. I’m going to try them out for my long run this weekend which includes a few miles at threshold. Is it weird to already be excited for my workout on Saturday? I love threshold pace (now to just learn to do this pace for 26.2 miles right;)!
Yep, that postpartum hair is coming back in again…
Remember Andrew’s brother that we visited in Hawaii 1.5 years ago? They are moving (wouldn’t it be so hard to move from Hawaii?) and are here in Utah for a few days so we went straight to go hang out with them!
This was my first time at Top Golf and it was so fun. I have no idea what I’m doing but I loved pretending like I did.
Brooke got in some sweet shots while we were out.
PS this activity made me realize I need to get my eyes checked because I could not see the ball out there!
My in-laws ordered the good stuff for everyone= nachos and chicken & waffles (complete with syrup and gravy)!
We will be back.
Why crawl to get something when you can put all of your effort into reaching for something?!
Flautas (from Costco), snap peas and watermelon for lunch.
Brooke has horse-back riding lessons today so we picked up her first helmet. PS for stuff like this Brooke has upped her chore list and helping out around the house. That is how I know she is really obsessed with doing this—> she is working for it.
For dinner we got together with my family that is in town. These girls are just three months apart and I’m so excited they will have each other.
My sister made her heavenly bbq chicken pizza. The only pizza I love that isn’t just plain cheese. Her recipe is HERE and it is so easy and SO cheap to make.
Lots of cousin time over here.
Remember how I did a workout in Seattle with the Brooks Beasts (their professional middle distance runners)? Well, they are sharing their strength workout with you! It is HARD but clearly… super effective and great to help us to get faster. This workout is from the Brooks Beasts Head Coach Danny Mackey! Let me know if you try it out!
All moves consist of 3 sets of 10 repeats (except for Push Press= 3 x 3 & Lateral Band Holds 2 x 45 seconds).
