The usual sister running group taking over the streets of Utah;) 8 miles @ 9:10 average pace and we both agreed that Monday’s run felt 40 times easier than yesterday’s run. The roller coaster of running is a lot better at least when your training partner is sitting right next to you on the same ride.
Random tangent but last week my lower back had been hurting during my runs and I went into Dr. Bennett and boom… a quick adjustment and I felt like myself again. I’ll be going into him once a month during pregnancy to keep everything feeling good as my body goes through many many changes.
We hit up the park again because the girls feel a need to make up for all of the lost time (parks in our area are open again)… I’m already wondering how they went so long without parks.
My sister and her kids met us there and my nieces sure give my kids all of the love and attention.
Andrew does most of the grocery shopping now so I always love finding the random things he picks up there ha… This week’s find was Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies. He said that when he saw them he just needed our kids to try them since they were such a big part of his childhood:)
I cannot get enough fresh salads and vegetables (one week I ate Shalane’s quinoa salad every day for a week) which means we’ve been experimenting with a lot of combinations. We tried making this Honey-Mustard Dressing with greek yogurt and it is heavenly. Both Andrew and I can’t get enough of it.
Along with the fresh meals there have been plenty of TJ’s frozen macaroni and cheese dinners too.
We spent a lot of time in the front yard.
We had to take advantage of $1 Taco Tuesday because tacos always sound good to me right now.
Skye loves the Tuesday tradition too.
Finished off the night with the juiciest watermelon and a very early bedtime.
3 things I’ve seen online I wanted to talk about….
*Michael McKnight completed 100-miles without taking in any calories during those miles. He ate breakfast before and that is it. I seriously did not know this was even humanly possible (and it sounds beyond painful). For my ultra, I took in 150ish calories every 3 miles religiously and my ultra was half as long.
You can read more about it here! It’s definitely not something I’ll ever try ha because I NEED fuel during a run anytime I am going longer than 10ish miles.
*Zach Bitter sets a new world record when he ran 100 miles on his treadmill and averaged a 7:18 pace! I hope he had a lot of really good shows to watch while he did this.
*Strava users, did you see this? Will you keep using Strava?
Snack or food that just takes you right back to childhood?
Strava users… how do you feel about the changes? Do you have a subscription already or will you be getting one?
Do you feel like your runs vary greatly throughout the week with how you feel or do you feel pretty similar during your runs most days?
-Normally they vary but I feel like pregnancy makes them vary in how I feel even crazier!
Do you make your own salad dressings? Share the recipes we need to try!
