While so many of you are dealing with crazy heat and humidity, we had another cold day yesterday. It was 45 degrees for my run! It’s a huge blessing that it was cold and rainy because on Sunday our area had a lot of big fires happening and the change in weather really helped! When I went to bed Sunday night I was planning on not running Monday morning because the air conditions were very unhealthy but when I woke up, they were back to the healthy range.
8 miles @ 9:04 average with my sister and the best running weather possible.
PS a road race happened here in Utah on Saturday which gives me hope that the St. George Marathon really will happen this year for Andrew and all of my friends training so hard for it.
One major difference that I was thinking about between last year’s running and this year’s running is what I take with me for each run. This picture below was from what I took with me for my ultra but for the long runs during that training cycle I was also bringing SO much with me on each run to make it through (along with a credit card to stop for donuts). Even during marathon training last year I always had a lot of things to get out the night before for the next day’s training.
Brooke joined me for some stability ball hamstring curls after my run.
We were then off to the dentist for Skye. She fell and hit her tooth a few weeks ago and it started darkening. We took her in and the dentist said it would most likely return back to it’s normal color and it has! Her tooth was just bruised which I am very grateful for because I did not want to have to have her get it pulled.
You know you are a good dentist when a 2 year old acts like she is going to Disneyland when she has an appointment.
Andrew and I go on dates these days in the afternoon because pregnancy (my current excuse for going to bed so early;) has me in bed by 8 ha. I’m going to have to take a long nap on Saturday to stay awake for fireworks.
My appetite/hunger is very strong at this point and I’m happy about that. We went to Guru’s for sweet potato fries and I had the pesto pasta. Andrew had the Cobb salad without the eggs on it which leaves me very confused because the egg is the best part of that salad.
Then we went to see the baby! I was actually tempted for a minute to find out the gender but we didn’t. We told the ultrasound technician we wanted to wait so she just told us when to not look at the screen. Everything looks great and the baby is doing really well.
We finished off the date with something that sounded incredibly good to me… CINNABON. It was amazing.
Just a few tangents to talk about today!
*Skye loves sleeping in Brooke and Knox’s t-shirts at night lately and she was especially thrilled to have matching camo shirts with Knox. PS I still haven’t worked up the guts to say goodbye to the binky yet.
*I love Des Linden’s tweets so much. She keeps running simple and honest… I love it.
*Brooke set up an obstacle course for Andrew to do and he took it extremely seriously. Maybe we will see a little of this competitive side come out at the marathon too?!
*Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale (fun fact I used to work there:) is one of my favorite sales. I stock up on their candles to use until the next big sale because they are all 50% off. The Island Margarita is my #1 choice this year.
Would you say you are a competitive person when it comes to sports or games? Competitive with others or more yourself?
Tell me about any differences between your training this year and last year?
Favorite scent for your home or for your lotion?
What do you bring with you on your runs? Does it change a lot depending on the length of your run?
