I didn’t feel like getting out of bed but I went for a run anyway and felt 400 times better afterwards. 8 miles @ 8:21 average. My quads are finally not sore after running on the snow this last Saturday… The second I do anything different in the slightest workout wise= I am sore for days. The joys of training again!
I cannot begin to express how excited Brooke has been about hat day at school. She had her cowgirl hat out and ready to be worn for days and she couldn’t wait to get out of the car when I was dropping her off at school to show it off. Kids remind me all day long to be excited about the little things in life.
Once we got past the fact that I wouldn’t let Skye eat a bowl full of Oreos and milk with a spoon for breakfast… it was smooth sailing for a bit.
Skye has a sixth sense which is quite remarkable. It doesn’t matter if she has already had a bath for the day or if she is on the opposite side of the house or if she is at the grocery store with Andrew… She knows exactly when I turn my shower water on and she will have her clothes off and be in the shower with me 10 seconds later. I don’t remember the last time I took a shower alone haha.
A few hours later and my sister called me and invited us to go to the park with her and her boys. I was a little confused when she first asked because it has been so long since we were going to parks but then I remembered we are having springlike weather and the parks are ready for us.
Skye did hill repeats while we were there.
Andrew took a homework break later on for a walk together.
Walks are one of my favorite things to do.
We had way too many eggs in the refrigerator so we made egg scrambles for dinner.
The other day my brother recommended the Headspace app so Brooke and I have been trying it out the last few days before she goes to bed. So far, we love it.
Time for a tempo…
And this will be my motto for this morning!
Do you do any form of meditation?
Do you go on walks often? Do you have a dog that needs walks?
What was the last podcast that you listened to? I need a good one to listen to today as I do the laundry I have procrastinated for a week.
Have a mantra that you’ve been loving lately for your running!
