22 second pr on the .57 mile segment that we do that climbs 247 ft. It helps that I did it on fresh legs (I haven’t done speed in over a week but my goal is to do some this Saturday) but hey, I’m happy to CELEBRATE every step along the way to my goals and 22 seconds is 22 seconds! I thought I was going to pass out during that final .1 mile… hills are SO hard.
This little dude slept 9 hours straight on Monday night and then woke up 9 times on Tuesday night! I’m not complaining about being tired (because EVERYONE is tired:) but just to keep parenting real.
His morning smiles just make me forget all about what happened throughout the night haha…
Beck is still sleeping in our bathroom because Skye is still needing her own room so he might be sleeping in our bathroom until he is 5 at this rate;). The only problem with the bathroom sleeping that we have come across is that we can’t take a shower until he is awake which results in purple lips for me after a cold morning run when I stay in my running clothes. We have the girls bathroom right next to us so that’s what we use in the middle of the night but I just like to shower in my shower:)
The things I could accomplish if I had her energy…
Six days apart is rough but the reunion is always so sweet.
These four built some bike jumps outside.
Easy Salsa Verde Enchiladas were another hit for the whole family and thankfully the title of the recipe told the truth and it was actually easy to make:)
Finished off with the most amazing homemade caramels from a neighbor for dessert! One of the caramels was topped with a mini pretzel and drizzled chocolate and it was perfection.
Thursday Things and Tuesday Tangents are basically the same thing, they both give me an excuse to tell you a bunch of random things.
*This might be a hidden talent of mine or it might just be very common BUT whenever I travel, I can taste a big difference in the water wherever I am.
*Yep. Running makes hard things way more fine:)
*I came across an old blog post of mine from 2010 the other night that made me really happy. Goal #2 happened, Goal #3 almost happened at Hobble Creek (24 seconds off) and part of Goal #4 happened too… The difference is that they happened 9 years later (along with dozens of failures along the way) than I was planning on them happening and that’s okay. If your goals are taking longer and longer than you thought they would to happen that’s okay, don’t stop reaching for them. There is no expiration date on goals!
PS my first goal was to have a picture taken at the end of a marathon where I didn’t look like I was dying which I still need to accomplish.
I also came across this picture from about the same time… I basically lived on that treadmill. I loved that thing so much and I wish I knew how many miles we shared together on it:)
*I saw the BYU girls out running yesterday. It inspired me to watch a bunch of videos about them… I loved listening to this one so we can see the race from the coach’s perspective.
PS Whenever I watch a movie about runners I feel the same nerves that I do when I’m at a starting line haha… I get a little too emotionally invested. This video kind of makes you feel like you are at a race which I sure miss!
*For April Fools day we put the kid’s cereal in the freezer so in the morning they are very confused about the fact their cereal is frozen!
What about you… can you tell a difference in the taste of water whenever you travel somewhere new? Also, when you do go somewhere new (pre covid days especially!) are you adventurous with trying the different types of foods/desserts there or do you stick to the basics?
Are you doing any pranks today? Any good ones from the past that you did or people did to you?
Ever had a treadmill? Which one?
What are you making for dinner tonight… I need an idea!
