Not much new on the running front… same pace and same distance pretty much daily! Maybe I’ll get crazy and do a few short intervals today;)
My sister and I were in all black from head to toe for our run (besides my socks and my tank underneath the black long sleeve that I wore for most of the run… we decided we need to coordinate our running outfits every day now.
Brooke and I then went straight to my good friend’s house to swim. I felt way too anxious (not sure if I am just more anxious when pregnant or if pools in general just really scary me) to bring Skye too (because there were no shallow areas) so she stayed with Andrew while we went.
Brooke is gladly joining me in eating almond butter and jam sandwiches for breakfast.
Brooke held a butterfly on her finger for the first time ever… My friend bought caterpillars to teach her kids about how they change into butterflies.
And then the girls played in the pool for a long time.
And we caught up on life. We have been friends since college and it’s the type of friendship where we might go a while in between seeing each other but as soon as we do, we just pick right back up where we left!
Then Andrew was going to go mountain biking so we (ummm I) decided to meet to switch Skye over to me at my favorite place right now. I dream about this salad with it’s dressing so there must be something in there that the baby is needing or at least that’s the excuse I make to myself when I go there multiple times a week;)
A picture from Andrew’s day on the mountain bike:
I didn’t really love donuts until my pregnancy with Brooke and they are gladly welcomed in my life during this pregnancy now too. I just read that the baby is as big as a donut now so I thought I would do a picture with the one that Andrew had waiting on the counter for me.
Okay, the baby is not as big as a maple bar but I’m excited that it is as big as a smaller donut at least:).
The other highlight of the day was sitting out on the grass while the kids played… it was worth it for the allergies I experienced the rest of the night;)
Did you see the Anatomy of a Marathon Runner- Desiree Linden on the Olympic Channel? Here is a small clip but you can watch the full one here! She is just amazing. “She’s like a bunny, she can do this all day.”
Also, I loved this clip where she breaks marathon running stereotypes too: “Anybody who covers 26.2 miles has some crazy and some tough in there.”
PS In the movie about Des they talk about how we take about 50,000 INDIVIDUAL STEPS in a marathon and I’ve never even thought about how many steps we take in a marathon. That number made my mind explode a bit.
PPS is anybody else already putting together their 2021 race schedule? I am missing them a lot right about now.
How often do you run with sunglasses?
-Every single day right now. I just can’t go without them and these sunglasses are by far my favorites to run with.
Do you track your step count? Do you have a goal for each day? Has it been harder or easier to meet that step count goal during this time at home the last few months?
Marathon running stereotype… True or False: Marathon runners have more shoes than clothes?
-My answer= true.
As far as workout clothes go… what two colors do you wear the most often?
