We all woke up feeling like Skye in the below picture. Hiding behind a blanket all day sounded rather appealing.
Luckily, I had Emilee to meet for a run which is what got me up and out the door to meet her for 8 miles @ 8:39 pace. She is shooting for 90 miles this week so I am hoping to get at least half of those miles in with her:)
When we first started running together we would always laugh when we would meet up in the morning because we would usually be dressed for different seasons. I think she is the one that is usually dressed appropriately for the weather because I just tend to overheat every run.
Beck LOVES his bath time and he kicks around so much in there that he splashes his own face.
I’ve decided to just let the kids wear exactly what they want to wear. Skye was positive that wearing two different types of shoes is the current fad so I’m just going to go with it (although I did make her grab a left and a right foot shoe instead of two rights ha).
We went and picked up Beretta from the Dog Hotel that she stayed at while we were away. She was so happy to see Skye and me!
I was reminded of this yesterday… When I first met Andrew and told my sister that he had a chocolate lab she thought it was an ACTUAL lab where he made chocolate. She was very sleep deprived from having two small babies at the time and she was so disappointed to learn that she wasn’t going to have free chocolate for life once we got married;)
For dinner I saw these ham and cheese sliders and knew they would be a favorite… and they were. They taste better than they look and they took about 7 minutes to prep. PS don’t mind the top of the poppyseed bottle that somehow landed in the sandwiches.
Time for a speed workout!
And of course our Tuesday needs some tangents!
*I loved reading all of the ways everyone recovers in the comments of my post yesterday and I wanted to share Sloan’s. I LOVE the drain your legs trick too and it has definitely helped me in the past and I’ll have to use the compression sleeves next time my shins are achey.
Skye wanted to show you how it is done, she needed a lot of recovery from all of her trampoline jumping lately.
*Cadburry Egg Cookies. These need to be a part of your life this week. The toasted coconut inside is amazing.
After almost five years of marriage it is a total habit for me to automatically put dough in the fridge for Andrew to eat.
*I love reading the Fast Women’s Newsletter each Monday morning and really enjoyed reading about the British Olympic marathon trials. Steph Davis won the race with a 2:27:16! It was so cool to read that she runs 60-65 miles per week. I love seeing that there are so many ways to get to our goals and she has clearly found what works for her training even if it is so different from her competitors!
*I’m trying really hard to get better at carrying both of them at once but they are both growing SO fast so I’m not sure how much longer I will be able to.
Those of you with little ones (now or previously)… which side did you naturally tend to hold them on?
-The right side feels way easier for me vs the left!
Do you ever use any compression gear? Have you in the past?
Please tell me what in your opinion is the perfect sandwich combination!
GIVE ME A TANGENT!
