Thursdays are trail days and I’m really happy about that.
It was my friend Jenn’s birthday so we got together for a run. With each uphill we took, my legs reminded me that I did a tempo run the day before.
1341 ft of climbing, 9.12 miles and a 9:32 average pace.
Blogging behind the scenes photo. Andrew and I were trying to get some work and school done during Beck’s nap but Skye was not into that idea…
And we decided to hot tub instead for a few minutes.
Now that it is warming up a bit, Brooke is wanting to get out and run again with me… YESSSSS!
Another repeat recipe because we all loved it so much. These honey lime chicken enchiladas are too good.
Let’s get chatting about some favorite things from this week!
*FINALLY. Finally. Finally. The perfect ratio of chocolate and peanut butter in a Reese’s. Try these please.
*I LOVED Lindsey’s episode HERE with Steph Bruce, Alysia Montaño and Sara Vaughn about motherhood and running. It was very inspiring!
*This book is AWESOME. It has inspired a lot of really important conversations with the kids and I love the themes throughout the book.
*I saw these patches on a few different people’s instagram and it took me a while to finally try them out (mainly because my skin was so much better during pregnancy but the pregnancy hormones must have worn off now). I’ve used about 10 patches so far and each morning that I’ve used them when I take it off, the blemish hasn’t disappeared but it is so much smaller and less red. I might have to purchase a few hundred boxes just in case they ever stop making them.
*While we are talking about faces, I have to share this. My sister hooked me on these a few years ago and they are the BEST facial razors (and so cheap). They never irritate my skin and take care of any peach fuzz or unwanted hair I have on my face in about 2 seconds.
*The word Runfulness that Brooks recently shared. “Runfulness is mindfulness unlocked by running. It is the effect of a run that is so good, so freeing, it allows you to forget your feet altogether- taking your mind to places the road doesn’t go. That’s where you find the power to change a day, a life, the world.” AMEN.
And a Friday unfavorite (which I’ve never done before)… A few months ago I got a pair of the AirPod pros and I just cannot get myself to like them. I don’t like to not be able to hear things around me when they are in my ears (even when I turn off the noise cancellations I still feel like I can’t hear anything else). I switched Andrew for his old ones and he loves these ones so maybe I’m alone in this opinion?
What headphones do you use when you work out?
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
Have you experienced Runfulness recently?
Favorite candy that involves chocolate?
