I am the type of runner that leaves first thing in the early morning before my brain can fully understand what I am setting out to do. But yesterday, I went later on in the morning for a run. Andrew was up in Salt Lake City for labs and left crazy early so I set out during Skye’s nap at 10:30ish (my mom came over and hung out with Brooke and Knox). PS Our treadmill isn’t set up yet so that wasn’t an option (plus I’m not sure if I remember how to run past two miles on a treadmill anymore… times have changed).
It was warm. I was awake. The sun was out so I could see all of the gorgeous leaves the entire time. I loved it.
The morning started out with Skye wanting to be snuggly first thing which is not her normal morning activity. Normally, her eyes open and she is ready to go and crawl everywhere but yesterday she was happy to just snuggle for twenty minutes.
When Brooke and Knox woke up we went straight to Target (Skye is in the cart) to go get ingredients for dinner tonight. We were in our PJs but we beat the Target Saturday crowds.
We came back and did chores. Then my mom came over and she came with donuts. She is a good woman. She did a craft with them too which made their day.
Three weeks post marathon and my body is still recovering but it was nice to have a little pep in my step again. I was planning on 5 miles but then I got to 5 and remembered I was supposed to do 4 x 20 seconds fast with 2 minutes easy run in between each 20 second interval so I added on. The 20 seconds fast were around a 5:45 pace and it felt so so good to push it for a few seconds and sweat again (both from running faster and from the sun).
The pep in my step might have been from half of a nanohydr8 (my discount code is here) I took before… I was dragging before leaving and needed caffeine.
Post run apple fritters are the best type of apple fritters.
My sister invited us to go to the BYU football game with her and her kids in the afternoon.
I’m nervous about the teenage years with these four.
Pretty sure I watched a total of 30 seconds of the game (we left early too) because Skye was all over the place… but let’s be honest, I just wanted to go to hang out with my sister and Brooke and Knox were excited to go.
This is their ‘hard core’ face.
This is Skye’s ‘hard core’ face.
We then hung out at my sister’s house until Andrew got home.
Emily posted this the other day and I had to share it here too! What will you be handing out this year?
My brother did his last long run before his 2nd half marathon next weekend. He was supposed to do 9 but went the extra mile… (he needs to listen more closely to his coach;)… I’m so so excited for him. Also, he has his eye on a marathon now. I love seeing people become hooked.
Carly sent me an item that I need to find at TJ’s. How cute!
Do you get trick-or-treaters where you live? What will you be handing out?
-We just found out that no one trick-or-treats in our new area because there is a neighborhood party instead…. I guess I’ll be in charge of eating our candy this year;)
