4 things from yesterday’s run:
*Why I love working out in the early morning—> Because I don’t wake up fully until I am a few miles in and those first few miles are usually the hardest so it’s nice to kind of sleep run through those.
*8 miles @ 9:08 average.
*At the end of my run I ran into Emilee (the girl I trained/raced with daily last year) and it was SO good to catch up with each other and start making plans for our 2021.
*How many more weeks until my belly button is poking out and everyone I pass stares at it as I go past them like it did when I was pregnant with the girls?
Brooke started tennis camp again so we went straight there afterwards and I had the world’s best peach.
And then right when we got home the girls wanted to ride bikes so they did that out front for a while.
I sat and chatted with my neighbor as I ate a chocolate popsicle at 9ish in the morning.
Other than that our day was pretty normal so let’s go over some tangents:
*I currently hear, “WHY MOM” about 499 times a day. That brain of hers needs all of the answers.
*We’ve converted another family member to Brooks and it definitely made my day. My niece lives in St. George and her training during these hot hot months is inspiring me to stop complaining about our 60 degree running mornings;)
*Did you see that Des Linden took a full month off from running? If Des takes breaks when she needs too then we should definitely be doing that too! The article talks about how there is a lot of major stress happening in the world right now and we just aren’t recovering like we used to with our running… so if you need a break, take one!
*We went through that Costco carton of blueberries in less than 24 hours. Fruit is too good right now.
*The twins have been reunited again. My niece and Brooke are only a few months apart and they sure do look a lot alike!
*Such a great podcast episode HERE!
*Our chickens sure get all of the love. When kids come over to our house they head straight for the coop.
*It’s kind of weird to see a person that you used to hold and take care of when they were little take care of your own babies. My nephew has grown up way too fast.
*I’m excited to try all sorts of new and different workouts in 2021!!! (Source)
*HOLLIE posted this and I am 1000% person #2.
*She is trying so hard to convince me that it is time for her to move into Brooke’s room.
Longest break that you have taken for reasons outside of injuries/physical health?
In what ways are you organized? In what ways are you unorganized?
Tell me a thought or two from your latest run!
My sister and I were talking about this on our last run—> Can you eat anything in the morning or does your stomach only handle very specific breakfast type food in the morning?
-Outside of pregnancy I can eat anything in the morning but during pregnancy I’m pretty picky and it has to be a breakfast type food. My sister’s stomach/taste buds can only handle bread and yogurt first thing in the morning and she has been that way for a very long time!
