I’m not sure if the top I was wearing could stretch any farther than it did yesterday! The pockets are definitely not supposed to look like that but hey, the jacket did the job and kept my core incredibly warm.
While some (Andrew haha;) are complaining about how dark it gets early on at night now because we changed our clocks over the weekend, I’m over here thinking how great it is that it is light earlier in the mornings now. I saw way more people out running and walking yesterday morning than usual and I’m guessing it’s because it is so much easier to get out of bed and exercise when the sun is starting to come up too.
4.05 miles @ 9:29 average
Afterwards I went into the garage to do some weights and Brooke’s doll used the rowing machine.
I did the math and my strength training has increased 783% now that we have this area in our garage because it is so convenient for me to use.
We dropped off Skye with my sister and went to another doctor’s appointment.
Maybe our last doctor’s appointment…
While I was there the doctor had me do a Non Stress Test just to check in on the baby because I don’t feel the baby move as much as I did with previous pregnancies. The baby is doing great and Andrew and I enjoyed 40 minutes of just relaxing and hanging out together.
We picked up the girls afterwards. We were all starving so we took advantage of the free kid’s meals at Zao’s on Mondays and had some delicious rice bowls.
Andrew had to run into the store afterwards and he brought out maple bars which really finished off the meal perfectly.
I’m not sure what was happening behind me…
We of course went out for our nightly walk and Brooke was pretty entertained by this picture. The rest of the evening involved soup, contractions (that stopped after a few hours) and trying to keep my eyes open past 8 pm because of the time change.
Let’s chat about some tangents that I’ve been thinking about…
*This was announced a little while ago and I am just so excited to watch it (I’m crossing my fingers that it will be on TV)! I cannot wait to see the fast times that come out of this race and I bet they are all so eager to race! Sara Hall will be running this race and I’m just amazed by how she can pull off back-to-back marathons after racing London recently. I tried to do two marathons close together last year and that was ROUGH!
*I did 10 minutes on my rowing machine a few days ago which felt like my biggest accomplishment in a while! I just watched a show on my iPad while I rowed and my body is still sore days later ha… This thing works the body SO so good.
*My nephew and my sister have a hidden talent that is very special that I just found out about. They can say the ABC’s BACKWARDS and incredibly fast. My nephew did the entire thing in 2.9 seconds and my sister in 3.2 seconds. I can’t even say them that fast the correct way (and without singing it;).
*Skye’s favorite spot at my mom’s house. She has taken this whole ‘pretending she is a dog’ thing to a new level.
*Due to the fact that we had Halloween decorations up for almost two months (Andrew loves to decorate early) I was more than ready to take down Halloween and put some Thanksgiving things out at 12:01 am on 11/1.
*The winners of my 10 year blogging anniversary (sorry it took me a few days to get the winners picked)! Send me the shoes that you want and let’s get you running in them asap!
Can you say the ABC’s backwards? Any random hidden talents like my sister’s and nephew’s?
In a normal non-2020 year… How many races a year did you usually do? Has anyone else tried the back-to-back marathons thing?
What was the last non-running workout that you did!? On average, how many times a week do you cross train?
I haven’t asked you guys about your favorite donuts lately so I would really appreciate to know… You enter a donut store and they have every donut possible, what are you going to order?
