My thoughts are all over the place so let’s start with some things that have happened over here the last few days and then finish up with some random notes (so I guess like all of my blog posts:). Also, I have a new HRG Baby post up HERE if you want to check it out.
During my run on Thursday the high school cross country team turned onto the road I was on and for a few minutes I was following behind a group of 50 or so runners… It almost felt like I was in a race. It’s crazy how much I’ve missed races and the community of runners at them so it felt good to feel like I was part of a big crowd of runners again. I can’t believe December was my last race and who knows when the next one will be again.
On Wednesday I had a run with my sister with all of the talking about everything going on. It was therapeutic.
The majority of my pregnant runs with Skye were at the 9:22 average pace and this time around a lot of them are right around there too.
We’ve been doing a lot of art projects in the mornings.
And we had another day at the waterpark. Skye loves a good girl chat with my niece by the pool.
Sitting in the wave pool is going to be a huge part of my summer.
I’ve eaten tacos more than anything else the last two days.
Along with a lot of peaches…
I needed a large pan of cookie type goodness so I made my s’mores bars and they hit the spot. We were out of Hershey’s bars so I added Rolos, Hershey’s Kisses and Reese’s instead (the base is a graham cracker crust and it is so good.
A few Thursday Things:
*I went through the books in our kid’s rooms and it is time for a major change. I ordered all sorts of amazing books including POC and their experiences and perspectives. I can’t wait to share these with my kids.
*Is anybody else watching Lance on ESPN+? Are you finding it hard to believe a single word that he has to say?
*A few people have asked what training plan Andrew will be using for his marathon training and the answer is we are going to come up with it week by week. His work schedule is so all over the place these days that it is going to be important to work around that with his training! So I’ll give him a week’s plan each Sunday night. Let me know if you want me to blog about it each week! He will have one trail day, one speed day and one long run day with as much biking as he wants on the other days. Also, if you are interested you can find my first training plan HERE… The plan consisted of 3 days of running each week and I actually peaked at 30 miles per week along with teaching a few spin classes each week and rest days and had a wonderful race. High mileage works for some BUT it is NOT needed for all.
*I heard that Just Mercy is free to rent for the entire month of June to help educate people on systematic racism. Andrew and I will be watching this tonight here!
Another reminder that I have a new baby post here—> 17 Weeks and Body Changes.
Let me know if you want me to include Andrew’s marathon training plan each week!
