8.38 miles for my Thursday at an 8:19 pace. My body wasn’t sore except for my hamstrings from the race but it did take a few miles to get moving again. We have a very lonnnnnnnng run tomorrow so I’m not sure if I’ll get in a few miles today or not.
I think I’m going to copy Kipchoge and get in an ice bath on Saturday ha.
I think you can guess what we did next…
90% of my stretching and rolling these days happens at the splash pad because it’s a lot easier to do it there while watching the kids than at home!
We then picked up my niece and hung out at home for the rest of the day.
Dinner was from Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow (of course;).
And dessert was courtesy of my mom:)
Time for a few Friday Favorites (affiliate links included):
*Madewell is having a 40% off sale styles deal right now with the code VERYRARE. I bought some tops that were so cheap (like $6-$11) here, here, here, here and here. Along with a few of my favorite v-necks ever from them here that are also on sale. PS I normally wear small in tops but with madewell I buy XS.
(Not the best picture of the shirt but my only picture in one of them yet ha)
*Skye is officially ready for her vacation next month… Cutest cheap rompers with matching headbands ever on Amazon HERE.
*Last kid thing for today—> If I can find a toy that all three kids love to play with then I call it a success. All three love the Melissa & Doug food sets. We have bought a bunch of them and Brooke declared that this one is her absolute favorite. So just in case you need a fun gift for kids 18 months- 6 years old these are great. A good chunk of the morning is spent playing restaurant each morning.
*A few of my really fast friends swear by these shorts from Senita so I bought a pair here. They are awesome. They do not ride up on my legs, they are high waisted, they have so many colors and longer options available (I bought the 3.75” but there is also a 5” and 7”). They are also only $24 which I like a lot.
Super comfortable and my friends use the pockets for their phones or their small water bottles while they run too. I haven’t tried that because I love my Koala Clip (code HRG10 can get you 10% off) but I will try some water bottles in there.
*These little packs from Costco. My sister had them at dinner the other night so I went to Costco the next morning and bought a box of them for our family. So delicious and 90 seconds in the microwave. Boom.
*I really haven’t been taking my kids to the pool that much this year (unless Andrew is with me or another adult that can help) because Skye is at a very fearless age BUT with our upcoming trip (there is a pool where we are staying) I have been reading and learning as much as I can about water safety for kids before we leave. THIS ONE has been my favorite and it is full of great tips that we will be using from here on out with Brooke, Knox and Skye.
*Andrew came up with my word for this marathon training cycle and he gave me a necklace with it—> UNSTOPPABLE. This word makes me feel so tough and feeling tough makes me run faster when I want to slow down.
Have any favorite things from this week?
Do you have a word that you are using for your running right now?
Looking forward to anything this weekend?
Ice baths… do they work for you? Ever tried them?
