Monday morning I got on my treadmill and I was so excited about my new setup because the garage was the perfect temperature, I had Hulu on my iPad to watch, my water bottle was full of crushed ice and water and I loved being a few steps away from my bathroom.
But the biggest reason I was just so thrilled to be on my treadmill was because of this… HOW UTAH?!
1.16 miles into my run and I heard a crazy sound and boom, the treadmill belt went nuts. There was a little rip that happened and the belt folded over. We have put a lot of miles on this treadmill (Andrew even ran a marathon on it once during ultra training… PS why did we train for ultras during the winter in Utah?) so I’ll forgive the belt for doing this to me.
Luckily, I was able to go out a bit later on when it was 22 degrees for 3 miles. By the way, when I updated my Garmin it now gives me a suggestion for what I should do that day… Ummm yeah, the below workout was not on my radar.
Sitting by my fire afterwards felt so so good.
Eating leftover soup for second breakfast helped to warm me up again fast too.
Brooke was really excited to be wearing four layers again to school ha.
We are REALLY into the ‘pretending she is a dog’ thing right now. We spent a good chunk of the morning going on a walk around the house with her leash on. For most of the day she only responded to us calling her Max.
Brooke and Skye have both been way more into dogs than dolls when they are little.
Free dinner… one of my favorite things ever. Our church group offered a ‘drive-thru’ for all of the families in the area to come pick-up dinner. Andrew was thrilled because it was from one of his favorite restaurants, J-Dawgs.
Along with some dense chocolate cake.
Brooke’s first ever 26.2 item… Her school gave her this for completing her marathon in a month. She asked if she can put it up on the wall by the treadmill and that was the easiest yes I’ve ever said!
Those of you that have had treadmills or have one now, have you ever had the belt break? What problems has your treadmill had?
Can you eat non-breakfast type foods/leftovers in the morning? Or do you stick to the classics for breakfast?
Tell me a toy or two or three that remind you most of your childhood?
-Pogs, Polly Pockets and Beanie Babies.
Tell me the temperature for your run today! It’s so interesting to me how different it is for everyone right now!
