Anybody else out there take self-timer running photos all of the time? Just me? Hahaha
I needed a change of scenery for my run! I’ve been doing the same loop most days of the week and I decided that I needed a change yesterday.
8.2 miles @ 9:01 average and these lower temperatures remind me every time how much the heat slows me down because I go so much faster naturally in the cooler weather. Normal summer running always feels like I’m getting extra credit though… Running through the hot summer always pays off during those fall races (are they planning on any where you live?!).
Brooke and I did a little bit of yoga for kids on Youtube when I got home. I have stretched three days in a row so far, it’s a miracle!
And then I used my #1 favorite recovery tool. I have used a lot of different recovery tools over the years and if I was going to recommend just buying one, I would tell you to get the Roll Recovery R8. It is pricey (I bought mine at Runner’s Corner) but it rolls you out so good, makes it so easy to target certain areas and it’s so much more convenient than a foam roller. The only problem is that it doesn’t really get to your glutes but I just use a tennis ball to roll out for those.
I’ve started to add a bunch of avocado to my smoothies and it is the best. The avocado makes it so creamy. This one had avocado, spinach, frozen pineapple/mango/banana/strawberry, yogurt and milk and it was so good.
Second breakfast happened here. Brooke and Skye are very happy about my latest love for Cinnabon.
We hit up the library to stock up on new books for the kids. While we were there we found out that they give out a weekly craft for the kids to take home and make so that new information was a big highlight for Brooke.
PS Skye wants to grow out her bangs (aka I am sick of trimming them all of the time so they aren’t in her eyes so we are growing them out;).
When I got out of the car I realized that before I know it, I’ll be needing a diaper bag again?! I don’t love carrying a purse/diaper bag in the slightest so that will take some getting used to again. I just love having my thread wallet and that’s it whenever we go places (ps I love this wallet and I should probably stuff a few less cards in there ha).
These sure aren’t getting old anytime soon… Avocado, turkey (I heat it up so that it is steaming hot before even putting it in the sandwich to cook to be safe with deli meat during pregnancy), Swiss cheese, tomatoes and butter on the bread.
Brooke later taught Skye how to do yoga…
And because I had zero desire to make dinner and tacos were only $1 yesterday, I picked up a bunch of these to eat at home.
I cannot wait to watch this on Saturday! It will be on Jared’s IG Live and maybe I’ll drive around our city to see if I can find him running around here like I sometimes do:). PS look at those times… can you even imagine running that fast?
What temperature is TOO hot for you to run in? Where do you draw the line? Does it depend on the humidity?
Do you have a favorite recovery tool?
Who has a July birthday, race or anniversary? Give me the details!
Do you carry a purse/bag or just your keys/wallet?
