My sister’s birthday celebrating was a success so let’s talk about how the day went…
I started things off with 7 miles on my own (my sister is not into winter running… she loves her treadmill right now:). My body was definitely feeling sore after my speed workout on Wednesday! Someday I’ll build back up to doing trails/hills the day after a speed workout like I used to do when I was training hard in 2019 but for now I will take the day after a speed workout easy. PS the speed day followed by trails (<— my coach calls these challenge runs) really helped me to get faster so it will be exciting to get back to that again in the future.
My sister’s request for the day was good food and some relaxation and we accomplished both. We went to her current favorite restaurant for lunch—> Zupas! Salad and steak sandwich for me.
And then we hung out at my house while the kids played and ate homemade bread and jam from my sweet friend Kelsey while we talked.
Then my sister went to hang out with her crew and we stayed home.
I have a feeling that Brooke might want to be a teacher in the future because she wants to teach Skye ‘preschool’ often. We had dinner, got in the hot tub and we are ready for a day of online learning today!
I haven’t shared any Friday favorites in a few weeks so let’s get to it now!
*I’ve had a few people ask me about this pink top (it comes in a few colors). Andrew bought it for me for Christmas (if you ever like something I’m wearing I guarantee it is something Andrew picked out and definitely not something I picked out ha) and I’m a big fan of it. It is waffle-knit and the softest thing that you will ever put on your body. It is also longer which I love!
*I saw that Megan got the Upside down Challenge and bought one for our house because it looked like so much fun. Kids and adults love it and it is so different than any other game that we have had.
*When I blogged about how much Skye loves to build the other day Lindsey recommended Magna-Tiles for Skye. I bought them and they are a HUGE hit at our house with Brooke, Skye and Knox. Skye plays with them the most and she gets lost in building for as long as she can.
*If you are in need of some cheep ($26) fleece leggings for running, go HERE to get some. I love these so much and this is my second winter using them. They are perfect for 17 degree weather and they are so comfortable and don’t move during the run.
*PS for those asking about my Balaclava top that I wear on really cold mornings, this is what it looks like. It is perfect for the freezing mornings.
*Another Christmas gift from Andrew and I absolutely love it. It’s on sale too… HERE! I have it in a few different colors too and love them. They are so soft and I love the high-neckline
The tie in the back is my favorite! You can also leave it untied and have a more flowy tank top.
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
Any teachers reading… When did you know you wanted to be a teacher?
How often do you trail run? If you don’t get to as much as you would like, how many times a week would be your dream to trail run?
Who has a sister (or sisters)? How far apart in age are you?
