With each week that my belly grows, the more stares I get directly at my belly while I’m running:).
The other day in the comments Brittany told me about how she tripped on an uneven sidewalk at 7 months pregnant (her baby was totally fine luckily) so I’m running purely on the asphalt. Those cracks/uneven sidewalks are out to get runners!
43.26 miles for my week! I did fartleks this last week (8 miles @ 8:16 average wahoo) but other than that all of my runs for the week were pretty much around the same pace.
After my run the girls and I left to go to the farmers market. On our way there we saw an Einsteins Bagels and decided that needed to happen first.
Skye insisted on bringing her backpack and she tells everyone that she is going to high school (somehow she thinks pre-school and high-school are the same thing). We are going to do her pre-school at home and Brooke asked if she could be the Teacher’s Aid so Skye is really excited about that.
They have a splash pad at the farmers market so we went to that next.
The best part of the day happened that evening when we went to a place called Just Add Chocolate in Lehi. I wanted to find a fun activity that night that didn’t involve being outside in the heat and that did involve eating chocolate. Success.
The workshop was set up so that you weren’t near anybody else (also, there were only two other people there) and after 15 minutes of instruction, we had about an hour to make whatever chocolates we wanted!
I highly recommend doing this if you live in Utah! It was about $40 for all of our chocolates, our instruction and our time to be in the chocolate lab. We will definitely do this again with Knox.
My favorite was the marshmallow and caramel one that I dipped into milk chocolate.
Our Sunday started out with a walk and then we went over to my parents’ house….
Time for the best news. We can be with my parents again! They both had Covid-19 and are doing extremely well now! My mom must have gotten it while at a doctor’s appointment for something else because that was the only place they had been during the last few months. They are both still dealing with fatigue but neither of them had to go to the hospital which is a huge blessing because they are part of the high risk group! My mom said she missed the grandkids way more than she missed me haha so it was a very sweet reunion when they were all able to hug her and Skye didn’t leave her lap.
One day a week during the school year our big kids will be able to go to their house for ‘school’ now. My dad will be teaching math and my mom will be helping with whatever else they need that day (along with starting a Spanish class with my mom:). The kids have never been so excited for school to start now!
My dad started math lessons yesterday with money ha!
PS while I was there my mom had out their RECEPTION NAPKINS FROM 1971?! I definitely am not as good as she is at keeping things like this!
A few more bagel sandwiches happened on Sunday because those are clearly my thing right now.
Just in case you need a podcast for your run this morning, I loved listening to the Hurdle Podcast with Des Linden.
Just in case you need to have something really delicious after your run today, I recommend a bagel egg sandwich with watermelon.
Just in case you need to laugh about running… I am definitely the chinupper at the end of a hard workout.
PS the bike version is awesome too:) I’m the ‘easily startled.’
Just in case you need some motivation to include a little speed work with intervals this week (like I do:)….
Do you know anyone personally that has had Covid? How did it go for them?
Has an uneven sidewalk or cracks in the sidewalk ever caused you to trip while on a run?
Are you good at hanging on to keepsake items like my mom?
Can you relate with any of the runners or people on the bike path in the above movies?
