Another day, another run.
I went with my sister and for our final mile we cruised! 6 miles total @ 9:05 average. The other day, Carol said in the comments, “The humidity this summer has been the worst… BUT now that the weather is changing, I am hitting faster paces because of all those hot & humid runs!” YES and yes. We don’t have the humidity here but the hot runs we did in the summer are paying off with faster runs in the fall!
The kids had grandma school and my niece left this on their board for them.
Skye had another dentist appointment to check in on her front tooth that she bruised a few months ago. Her tooth is all cleared now and back to normal. PS our Pediatric dentist is so good that my nephew that turns 18 next month asked him if he could keep coming to him throughout college too. He makes them all love going to the dentist.
We then hit up the park for a few minutes…
And had a lunch date before Andrew was off to a training for the rest of the day on open heart surgery recovery care. We went to Marley’s and it was so so good. They have fresh peach shakes right now… GO if you live in Utah.
The rest of the day included the fun stuff like cleaning, laundry and hanging out on the couch so let’s just get right into my favorite things this week!
*We bought this board from a furniture store in our area (4 Chairs is my favorite store ever) and they had this on sale and I fell in love with it fast. Time to think of all of the phrases I want to put in there for my kids to read over and over again.
*I’ve posted about these rubber bands before but I’ve used them for a few months now and I’ll never stray from them. Below is exactly how my hair came out of one of the rubber bands after a run and then shower… No lines from the rubber band and my hair stays put whenever I use them!
*SO MANY FUN ideas of things to make for Halloween (yes, we are way too early with all of this;). Let me know if you try any!
*My favorite boots are back in use again. I have had these for a long time now and wear them more than anything else during the cold months. They pretty much go with anything and they are basically just fancier sneakers so your feet stay happy all day long.
*These days I get the majority of our kid’s clothes at Cotton On Kids. I love everything they have. I’ve had a lot of questions on the girls sweatshirts lately so here is the Wild Child one and here is the Running The World one (it says GIRLS on the back). They usually have some sort of sale going on too (like buy one get one 1/2 off).
*I LOVED seeing a detailed post about what Jared Ward did for two weeks of his training for the upcoming London Marathon. It’s so fascinating to me what these elites can do each week and it was fun for me to read about it because I know where all of the different areas he talked about running are.
What was the highlight of your week so far?
How do you feel about the dentist? Dread it or don’t mind it?
What shoes do you wear more than any of your other shoes?
Do you wear a watch for every run or do you ever run watchless? Do you pay attention to your heart rate while you run?
