My max is 8 miles at this point in pregnancy and I walk up the hills because they make me so out of breath…. When I was pregnant with Skye I was still running half-marathons at this point (and even later into my pregnancy when I was pregnant with Brooke) and running uphill but that definitely isn’t happening this time around and I’m okay with that. I’ve learned that comparing myself to where I used to be or where I’ve been in the past is such a waste of brain space because it takes us nowhere besides being miserable. But being grateful for doing whatever you get to do in the moment feels way better and I’m beyond grateful for each flat or downhill mile that I can get my hands on right now. I know it can all change fast so I’ll keep taking it a day at a time.
I hope you are currently celebrating whatever you are doing regardless of what you used to do.
Random question—> Do you pay attention to what your Garmin thinks about your training? Even when I was training with an amazing coach and hitting new PRs frequently last year, it told me I was unproductive most of the time. It was also always very off on my race predictions too.
It’s probably correct now because I have zero variety in my training ha but I’m okay with that. It might think my training is unproductive but I know it is very productive for my mental health and feeling like myself each day:)
Superhero muffins make an excellent post-run snack along with some watermelon.
We were really excited to have Andrew for the day. His hospital has been slammed lately (not with Corona but with everything else) so he was really excited to have the day off.
I have been living in these t-shirt dresses… It’s like you are wearing soft light pajamas all day.
Because I am here so often the employees love to give me new stuff to try out for free. The chips were excellent and worth the heartburn after for the spice.
Target is a MILLION times more fun for the kids when Andrew comes with us and finds fun things that we need;)
Too cold for the pools but just right for the park.
Brooke has really been wanting to learn how to rollerblade so that is what the afternoon was spent doing (knee pads coming soon:). I have broken one bone in my life and it was from when I was rollerblading so I’m trying to be very open to this ha.
This was the best thing I’ve eaten at nighttime in a very long time.
Just one of those dinners that is a win for everyone… including Beretta
Last random thing of the day… Skye will NOT sleep (naps or at nighttime) without these two exact blankets and these two stuffed dogs. There have been many nights with us frantically searching the entire house and cars for them and I don’t know what will happen if we ever lose any of these four items.
Is your watch accurate with your training status or race predictions?
Have you broken any bones? Anyone’s kid’s broken bones?
What have you been eating after your runs lately?
What activity totally takes you back to childhood?
-Trampolines and rollerblades.
