The morning tradeoff with our favorite photobomber. I got home from my run and then Andrew left for his workout.
Random tangent for the day—> Nursing moms, the Brooks Juno Bra is PERFECT between the support it offers and the ability to undo the velcro strap in the front so that you can feed easily! The Fiona Run Bra does the same thing too.
My workout was a pretty one that involved a lot of hill climbing with Emilee.
8 miles total @ 8:25 average pace with mile 2 including a 335 ft gain (673 ft of climbing total)! It’s always nice to get the big hills over in the beginning but then you have some jello legs for the rest of the miles ha.
I learned a new hill trick yesterday. While we were climbing the monster hill I realized that because I was wearing a hat, I couldn’t see the top of the hill because my hat was blocking it. It was kind of nice to not see how much more climbing we had to do and once again, it helped me to stay in the moment. I could just think about taking one step at a time and not wondering how in the world I was going to make it to the top.
Beck did his strength training, I did not.
Our chickens continue to help us have some delicious meals…
I have been on a baking kick lately and I made some blueberry muffins from Tara Teaspoon’s cookbook. My mom gave me this cookbook for Christmas and I’m loving it so far. I grew up a few streets away from Tara and her family so that makes it even more fun.
Skye refuses to take naps at home but she definitely still needs a nap some days. She will fall asleep in the carseat so we went on an afternoon drive in the mountains to help her get some rest. All three of the kids fell asleep and once they were awake, we played in the snow for a bit.
Pretty sure we will continue to be doing this drive most afternoons for a while.
Sweet potatoes, pork and bbq sauce for dinner.
And pjs + face washed by 5:45 pm.
Would you rather start with a steep hill or end with the steep hill for a run?
*Get the hill over with first but I also know it’s good training to end with a big hill when your legs are already pooped.
Would you rather drive or be the passenger?
*Be the passenger… I do not enjoy driving but I love going on drives when somebody else is driving.
