Eight miles with a very tired body. My body was just not into the idea of moving but the easy run has a lot of benefits (here is a post with my favorite easy run benefits) so I kept going. My easy runs are set to be around a 7:57-8:45 pace and my run yesterday was an 8:55. Some days you just need to listen to your body and do whatever it tells you to do.
The other day Allie Kieffer showed off how she does her power bun for the run and I want to try it out. But hair hitting my back during my run really doesn’t bug me (ps I need a trim), does it bug you? If hair touches my face during a run, it makes me feel crazy.
The kids joined Andrew to go help feed his brother’s cow. We need a farm for these kids.
And then later on in the day we had Brooke’s bday party with her friends and cousins. Last year I did the party at home and this year I was too tired to do that again ha so we went to a place called Classic Skating. They had a blast!
Knox’s first time roller skating.
There were no broken bones by the end so it was a major success.
Skye was after those donuts big time.
Birthday parties for children are more tiring for me than long runs… definitely took time to recover afterwards.
Oh and best news ever—> My AirPods survived the washer and dryer. I forgot that I put them in my pocket. I washed my running clothes and found them in the dryer. I was SO upset… but somehow they still work. It is a miracle.
I’ve got some favorite things to share with you this week (a few affiliate links included)!
*We went shopping to get some things for our family pictures and I ended up getting this sweatshirt for the pictures… and I bought it in another color too (Gap stuff is always on sale so buy on sale:) because I love it so much. This will be my fall staple, I want to live in it. I also got these jeans too, I’m a big fan of Gap jeans.
*My friend sent me a text about these thermal tops at Costco ($12.99) so I went immediately to grab the purple and cream tops. They are so soft and also perfect for fall.
*I saw this on IG the other day and absolutely loved it.
*If you are coming back from an injury, time away, a baby, anything… I highly encourage you to reset your Garmin so you can celebrate your new accomplishments. I feel so cool when I hit new records on my watch even though they aren’t faster than years ago, they are my fastest times in this chapter of life. It makes me happy.
*I used to get my upper lip waxed but then I started trying this thing because my sister has used it and loved it for years. It is awesome!!!
*This Cauliflower Gnocchi. Try it asap if you can with some TJ’s pesto = heavenly. I couldn’t believe how good it tastes.
*It is finally peach season in Utah. Brooke and I stopped at the Farmers Market last night when we were dropping off my nieces and I cannot believe how good these are. I would choose these over a brownie sundae (without nuts)… they are that good.
Does it bug you if your hair hits your back/neck during a run?
