Eight miles yesterday and time for some 1000m repeats today. To help my legs to move fast, I’m going to wear all of my favorite running clothes and shoes, listen to some pump up music on my drive there and eat a pop tart before I leave (these things all seem to be good luck tools in my running toolbox). A little more than 10 weeks until my first race back!
Sara Hall posted this on IG and it is soooo true. Right now I just feel like I want to jump right back into marathon training because I LOVE marathon training. What I really need to do is get better at the 5k/10k first. My current longish term goal is a PR at the Chicago Marathon in 2022 but I guess I’ll see what variety of things I can do along the way to that goal.
Soooo Skye told me yesterday, “Mom, you talk too much about the same thing.” Good thing ten years on the internet has thickened my skin a little ha and I’m being prepared now for all of the teenage years ahead;). I told the kids the other day that my plan is to go back to teaching high school when they are there so I can keep an eye on all of them. My mom used to periodically show up at the high school that one of my brothers went to just so that he knew she could be watching at anytime hahah.
A little update on breastfeeding… You were so right about my body learning to adjust to Beck sleeping through the night. I’m not doing any extra pumping now and my milk supply is exactly what he needs right now. PS please remember if you struggle with breastfeeding that you aren’t alone, I had the hardest time trying to do it with the girls and I even told Andrew on the way to the hospital with Beck that I wasn’t going to try because I was so afraid of doing it again. At the hospital I decided to just try once and Beck just made it so easy.
Beck currently does about a 7 hour stretch at night but I just need to learn to go to bed at the same time he does instead of telling myself ’10 more minutes’ 15 times.
My nieces and nephews came over after school!
And Beck was so happy to wake up from his nap to see them all.
Whenever my niece is over and she see’s something unorganized she goes straight to organizing it and questions my organizing skills the whole time haha.
This happened too…
And just as I was thinking about what in the world to make for dinner, my neighbor asked if she could bring over a Shepherd’s Pie. UMMMM…. YES! It was so incredibly good.
I was looking at my call records to find a phone number and I realized that my sister and I might have a problem….
And to finish things off, I was on an old post looking for something and saw this picture and wondered how I had a picture of Beck in 2018 haha… it took me a minute to realize it was Skye.
Do you talk on the phone often? Who do you talk to the most on the phone?
Who has run the Chicago Marathon? Who is planning on running it this year?
Who do you think Beck looks like the most?
Are you a pretty organized person?
-In some ways yes and some ways absolutely not!
