I have a new Beck update—> Beck 4 Months & Postpartum Stuff…
It was one of those runs where you take your top layer off and put it back on about 20 times throughout the run. Spring weather just keeps you guessing the whole time but it was warm enough in my garage later to do some strength. I got a new app (Openfit) and have been using that for strength because I just cannot do it on my own. I NEED somebody telling me what to do, how to do it and to cheer for me even if they can’t see me and have no idea if I’m actually working hard or laying on the ground.
Nine miles with Emilee @ 8:01 average pace. She is running the Utah Valley Marathon in June and I cannot wait to see how she does. Her workouts have been incredible! PS if any of you are wanting to do the Utah Valley Marathon, 1/2 or 10k my code HRG15OFF will get you 15% off!
That sun felt so so good on my face.
The girls had their dentist appointment yesterday. They see the same pediatric dentist that my sister’s kids do and my nephew that is now 18 still insists that he goes to him instead of an adult dentist because he is that good. He is so nice to the kids and the whole place is filled with prizes, video games, music etc… it’s like a big party in there (except for the X-ray chair).
After school we had some intense Mancala playing…
Along with a walk (run for the girls:) in the perfect weather.
And those were the highlights of our day but I do have a few tangents to share!
*Brooke has started wanting to use a purse whenever we go anywhere and for some reason it just really makes me feel like she is a teenager now. Also, she told me she wants to grow her hair out longer than my niece (the one with the really long hair) so she won’t be doing her usual summer chop off her hair thing this year.
*Andrew got some beyond beautiful new running shoes. They are the Launch 8s!
Janine mentioned last week in the comments, “the brighter colored my running shoes, the faster I run. No irrefutable, scientific proof, but I still believe!” I think there is a lot of truth in that… if shoes are bright, I am guaranteed to run faster.
*Another gift for Andrew that we are all enjoying… Costco tubs of M&M’s are always a good idea!
*I came across this picture of the start of my 50 miler from TWO YEARS ago (time is going fast) and it got me excited for starting lines again. It made me excited for that rush of feeling confident in your training but still a little nervous because you have a new adventure up ahead. I can’t wait to get back to a starting line again.
*I also came across this picture… Remember when Skye dumped the entire box of cereal into my dresser drawer?! I wonder if Beck will be doing the same types of things soon ha…
*Daylight Savings has ROCKED our world. I’m not sure we are ever going to feel rested again.
*Netflix does it again and knows exactly what kind of show I need to watch… this is what I’ll be watching for the next 10 nights. It’s about couples choosing whether they spend a lot of money on their wedding or on a house mortgage.
Just another reminder of a new blog post HERE about Beck/postpartum!
Do you buy running shoes based on the colors/looks ever? Do you usually wear bright running shoes or more neutral colored running shoes?
Do you carry a purse, diaper bag, wallet or something else?
What show are you currently loving?
Have anything that you can’t sleep without?
