As you can tell from my sister’s arm and hair behind me… we were pooped at the end of our run. No matter what, running is just always hard. The difference is that you just get faster (or in my case slower with each month right now;) but it’s still just hard.
I really need to make a shirt to wear after my run each day that say’s this:
I’ve had a few people ask me what my sister has done for strength training (she prefers strength over cardio) during this time of gyms being closed etc. She has been loving the Beachbody app that she does in her home gym and her favorite workout from the app is the Brazil Butt Lift High & Tight workout. She is sore afterwards for a few days each and every time she does it. I’m working up the courage to try it out with her one day:)
I came inside from my run and we dug into breakfast. I copied Knox’s breakfast once I was done with my daily ‘half a cantaloupe’ tradition.
Knox left with his mom and then I took the girls to get in one of their final summer activities for the year at the splash pad.
Skye has reached that stage where she wants to do everything herself… get dressed herself, put her carseat seatbelt on herself, brush her hair… and the list goes on and on. She is so incredibly independent!
Yesterday in the comments, Anna talked about her love for caprese salads and as soon as I read it, I had to have one myself.
Finished off with some peaches that we got from an orchard.
I was in quite the baking mood yesterday and made two of my absolute favorite sources of carbohydrates…
Superhero Muffins. If I put them in birthday cupcake liners then Skye is even more excited about eating them.
And braided bread to go with our dinner.
Because pregnancy does weird things to me and makes me NEED chicken noodle soup on a 100 degree day;)
Just a few more random things…
Andrew brought me home flowers but Skye was convinced he brought them home for her and argued with me for 5 minutes about it ha.
Brooke sold apples from our apple tree out front and made $2.
Just a flashback picture from 364 days ago when I did one of the most beautiful runs I have ever done in my life (Mt. Timpanogos)…
I really wanted to hear where everyone is with their running right now. I got pregnant before the pandemic hit here so my brain was already turned off to racing, training and working towards goals before all of the races were getting canceled. I knew from the beginning of the year that it would be a while again until I was going to be improving or really racing again but I want to know where you guys are all at right now…
Where is your motivation coming from for running right now? Is anyone following any type of training plan or running what sounds good each day? Are you hopeful for spring races or just riding this thing out? Where are you at with how your running has been impacted this year?
Any shortages at the grocery stores or online driving you crazy?
-WINDOW CLEANER AND CLOROX WIPES… anybody else?
What’s the best thing you’ve eaten recently?
Would you rather get flowers or chocolate or other from a loved one?
