I haven’t done this in a while! The treadmill gave me the chance to run yesterday, and I was very thankful for it. I went over to my sister’s gym to use the treadmill so Skye could play with her cousins and Beck could hang out on the ground next to me. I also got to talk to my sister for most of the run, which made the time go by way faster.
Beck just hung out rolling and chatting, and it reminded me so much…
Of when I lived in California and had my treadmill on the deck. Brooke would hang out next to me in her car seat and I would chat to her and pass her new toys throughout the run. I look back on that time, and while there were a lot of tough times, there are also a lot of very sweet memories with Brooke like the miles that looked like this:
I got home, and Beck went down for a nap, and while Skye was scootering, I got out the ab roller. My sister swears by this thing. She uses it every day, which has helped with her back pain because it strengthens her core. I can only roll it a few inches right now, but you have to start somewhere!
It makes Brooke so happy when he does this.
The girls decided that they wanted to get their hair cut too and Skye was so excited. She was trying so hard not to smile over how happy she was ha.
Between the three of us, we must have chopped off about two feet of hair!
Let’s chat about some of my favorite things this week!
*Andrew and I had the chance to work together with lululemon on my Instagram! Father’s Day is coming up if you are looking for some things for a man in your life too! All of the things we are wearing are all in one place HERE!
These pictures are making me want to hit the trails up right this second… THESE shorts are amazing.
*The increase in mileage makes my feet need a lot of extra TLC, especially my plantar. I’ve had this little ball for years now and bring it out to roll my feet out whenever I’m at the computer. Making sure to include all of the simple things into my training makes the biggest difference in the long run.
*Goodr has a new style that I’m loving. I wear sunglasses before the sun even comes up on my runs ha… I need them and these don’t bounce or fog.
*I know I have talked a lot about the world’s best t-shirts in the past, but I can officially say I now have my absolute favorite t-shirt ever. They are $15, they offer 15 colors and they are oversized and so comfortable. I bought four colors and I’ll just rotate through these all summer with a pair of black biker shorts.
*I recently started following thebiamovement. She provides a holistic approach to self-defense and she includes so many important resources. She teaches women to keep fighting (she and her sister were attacked and now her mission is to help women know what to do if they are attacked). As runners we are out alone often, it is so important we educate ourselves on these topics and do whatever we can to be prepared. I am buying one of her keychain alarms and the Bia guarded ring (made for runners… she is also a runner).

Sunglasses when you run… yes or no? Sunglasses the rest of the day… yes or no?
What have you been doing for your core strength?
When was the last time you were on the treadmill and how did you entertain yourself?
