HEY!! Sorry I was absent yesterday! Back to normal programming over here and making you hang out with me each day for a new post:).
Not only did I get to run with my sister yesterday but I also got to see the sun for the first time in a week. It felt so good to get in some social time and some fresh air.
8 miles @ 8:27 pace.
This last week has been a cutback week! A cutback week was needed because of the back to back long runs the week before have made me so tired! This next week we have an 18 miler followed by an 8-10 miler and I’m crossing all of my fingers that those miles can be done outside (and on the trails!) because I am not as mentally strong as Andrew when it comes to doing the long run on the treadmill… I think I would rather do the long runs on an indoor track if it is too icy to run outside!
When my nephews know I am coming over they wait by the window watching for me and then this is their reaction when they see me. It makes me feel cool ha:
I came home and did my push ups (following this schedule for that) and practiced handstands with the kids.
They can both get up to the wall now and I’m guessing they will be able to balance on their own in a few more weeks. There is a yoga for kids class at the studio I am going to that they want to go to soon!
Homemade lunchables are their current favorite lunches.
Andrew brought home my favorite salad from Kneaders for lunch. More toppings than lettuce = the perfect salad.
We stuck around our house for the majority of the day and Skye yelled at her giraffe.
It was warm enough to go on a mini walk around our neighborhood with the kids. While we were out we saw a bald eagle and it was pretty close to us. It was gorgeous.
We are going through the Magnolia Cookbook and trying out new recipes so we tried out Joanna’s chocolate chip cookies!
Verdict—> Very good and thick but this recipe is still my favorite.
We put the kids to bed early (time to get back on routine for this next week) and watched our Netflix addiction right now—> Cold Justice.
Oh and on Friday night we went to the Monster Jam. This picture was taken before it started. We put on our protective ear gear once it started and had a blast.
While we were in Salt Lake City I had the best ice cream cone of my entire life at Normal Club. I’ll just dream about this ice cream cone in between each time we go there.
We didn’t have any long runs this week and ALL of my miles were on the treadmill except for Saturday because of the single digit temperatures in the mornings.
Excited for a long run this week with Andrew.
Monday: 3 miles @ 8:12 average.
Tuesday: 7 miles @ 8:27 average.
Wednesday: 4 miles @ 7:50 average.
Thursday: 7.2 miles + Yoga!
Friday: 7 miles @ 8:20 average.
Saturday: OUTSIDE AND IT WAS GLORIOUS—> 8.15 miles @ 8:27 average pace.
**My brother has a blog post for tomorrow that is incredible… He talks about everything from when he was PARALYZED and almost died to life with 7 kids to being a pilot for Southwest. He is pretty incredible.
What was your best run last week?
Would you rather do a long run on the treadmill or an indoor track?
Tell me three things that you are doing today?
Any shows on Netflix that you are hooked on right now?
