My body loves movement each day but when I don’t have a goal in the near future, there is very little motivation for me to get my exercise in while being uncomfortable (aka running solo in the cold ha). Another morning of Brooke waking me up and avoiding running alone in 10 degree weather. I’m sure once Emilee is back I’ll get out again but I’m just realizing now how race goals are 99% of my motivation!
Burn Bootcamp for me yesterday and Skye taught me how to squat.
It was bicep, tricep and back day and the sad thing is that my arms are actually tired TYPING this right now after doing this workout hahaha.
A pretty normal morning for us and when I put a beanie on, Skye ran over and found another to match with me.
Costco soup and salad lunch for the win. I love their fully loaded potato soup and then this salad kit is my favorite (+ their rotisserie chicken + avocado).
Skye had lunch first and then as soon as I was eating she ran over and grabbed another fork and joined me.
Not a bad view for a dentist’s office! I’m finally checking off the things I’ve been putting off the last few months because family and marathon training took all of my energy and I put everything else on the back burner:)
While making dinner I kept thinking how nice it was that Skye wanted to do art the whole time while I was cooking… which she did do, on the paper and on that pillar next to her. She really knows how to make those walls of ours look a lot more interesting.
Two Peas and A Pod Roasted Cauliflower Soup for dinner last night. One of those recipes that wins because we all love it.
For dessert we had my mom’s crockpot chocolates that she brought us. These things are my favorite and she makes them each year!
I find it quite amazing how she can just get on the very tip of her tip toes when she is reaching for something.
Anne posted about this podcast yesterday and I had a lot of laundry/organizing/cleaning to do so I dove in last night and 4 episodes later… I’ve cried and been beyond inspired. Anne was right (like usual), this is an incredible podcast. PS you have to check out her latest post about how to have a stress free holiday eating experience too.
Did you see this?! Maybe Des saw that I did back to back marathons and that helped her make her decision;). I cannot wait to see what she does at Boston, the trials and the Olympics!
What are your feelings about the dentist? Have one you love? Get anxiety going?
Nuts in dessert… yes or no way?
What percentage of your running motivation comes from races?
Did you watch Mr. Rogers growing up? Do you remember any shows that you loved from when you were really little?
