Skye loves to throw in a challenge by climbing on top of me while I am trying to plank.
Emilee and I went out for 8 miles first thing in the morning!
I’ve had a few people ask about whether or not we will be running CIM together and the answer is YES.
During the St. George Marathon there were times I would look down at her legs and try to match her stride so that we looked like twins and I’ll do that again at CIM.
Along with the planks I mentioned above, I worked on some pull-ups and continued on with upper body strength work at Target. This method below is the only way to visit Target safely for Skye and also save the ears of other customers around me:)
Just the usual kid stuff for most of the day.
And the soup from this cookbook with the little cheese croutons= Amazing.
The odds of Brooke eating all of her veggies at lunch goes up 400% when I put in a cute plastic toothpick in for her to use.
I think we all look up to Kipchoge a lot and when I was watching this documentary about him, it reminded me of another big reason I look up to him:
Remember in Berlin 2018 how his SHOE INSOLES started coming out in the first mile of the race? His feet were blistered and bloody and cut up because of this but he kept going, he didn’t quit and ended up winning the race. This story is such a great reminder to me that hard things pop up in training and racing for every single runner out there. We just have to do our best, work with what we can, stay in the game and as a result, amazing things will happen.
PS if you want to learn a bit more about how everything worked for Kipchoge’s 1:59:40 (the pacing, the car, the course, the fueling etc)… this is a great watch:
The other day on Instagram I asked for people to share their FAVORITE finish line story with me. Well, those stories had my mom and I texting back and forth about the ones that were shared because they were all so amazing. I was REALLY hoping that you guys would email me your favorite finish line story with a picture (if you want to share)… they can be about your people showing up at the finish line to surprise you or how you felt crossing the finish line of a race you didn’t think you could do or your first finish line ever or your first finish line after having a baby or anything at all!
These types of stories give me goosebumps (and tears) and I would love to put together some posts with everyone’s stories so we can cry together over our internet friend’s stories.
Send them to—> [email protected]
And a random picture that isn’t from the finish line but before the race:) Feel free to send a picture with it from the finish line or anything that you have that day!
What is the best part of your Wednesday going to be?
What’s your workout today! How often do you do strength work? I’m really trying to get back in (and even go to Burn Bootcamp this week).
Plank—> on your elbows or on your hands?
Do you like Indian food? Favorite dish?
