I have a NEW SKYE UPDATE HERE!! She is officially 1.5 years old now. I have a lot of random things/pictures to share with you.
Emilee and I were able to get in a run together again! It had been 8 days since our last run together which was way too long. PS having an awesome running partner just five doors away is spoiling me big time.
My legs were pretty sore from the previous week of running and the amusement park life but it felt good to be running around my area again.
We’ve got speed tomorrow! With my new coach we don’t usually find out the workout until the afternoon/evening before we meet so it’s always exciting to get the text about what we are doing on Tuesday’s. With previous coaches I would get my week of workouts on Sunday so this is a change for me.
We picked up Beretta from the dog hotel.
We also went to Costco to fill our kitchen up with the good stuff now that we are home. Skye was bored because they didn’t have samples.
PS I am all about a written list when I go grocery shopping, lists on my phone drive me crazy. I love to cross things out.
We also went to Dr. Bennet’s office to get everything adjusted and in place to keep on training. He has kept me injury free since the fall of 2014 (besides turf toe from coming off a curb weird on a run once).
He has one of the cutest dogs on the planet, her name is Fiona.
The rest of our day was at home. We had Turkey Trot Meatballs and roasted sweet potatoes for dinner (both recipes from here).
I’m full of tangents to share today:
*Bloglovin’ is back working again! Who knows why it stopped sharing my posts but it is back now. Thank you for letting me know that my posts weren’t going out.
*To answer yesterday’s debate question about Waze vs Google Maps—> I am 100% a Waze user and Andrew swears by Google Maps. Both of us refuse to even try the other person’s favorite. Waze has gotten me to where I need to go every single time and fills me in on the best route, accidents and hazards. This is one argument of ours where we both refuse to compromise;)
*I saw a raccoon out on my run last week in California… Andrew told me when I got back to the hotel that raccoons must be my spirit animal since I see them so often.
*I have definitely gotten ice cream in my hair while eating it too.
*My friend put this on her IG and I had never seen this quote before. SO MUCH YES and I really believe this is true.
*I had a weird flashback while we were at Disneyland to a time that I went there tenish years ago in this same restaurant. I was so stressed about what in the world I was going to eat at Disney all day. I remember being stressed about the entire trip because of that reason. I didn’t have my ‘safe foods’ with me and I didn’t have my normal control over every bite that I took. I had a proud moment sitting there last week thinking about the fact that those thoughts haven’t crossed my mind for years. I’m very grateful that food now is part of the fun experience/memories from my trips/life rather than taking away from those memories. I hope that you vacation (and live your life:) this summer free of guilt and eat the things that make your mind and body happy:). If this isn’t the case for you right now then there is NO BETTER TIME than now to work with a professional to get through this problem.
*A movie about running is coming out soon…. Let’s all get together and watch it at the same theater.
*We made this honey butter yesterday and put it on toasted Dave’s Killer Bread. It might be one of the best snacks ever invented.
Who is running Grandmas Marathon? I want to cheer for you!
-I was planning on running it this year but then the ultra/boston came up. Maybe next year or the next year?! I’ve heard it is amazing.
Grocery list—> Written out or on your phone?
At what age did you start swim lessons with your kids?
When do you know what runs/workouts you will be doing for the week? Right before? The weekend before? The month before?
