8.59 miles @ 8:34 average pace and in the middle of my run I did the craziest thing…
I stopped at my aunt’s gym and I LIFTED WEIGHTS. Okay, I’m not doing much at this point with my weight lifting so I can build up in a smart way but I’m really trying to build the habit of making it happen 2-3 times each week.
Let’s get going with the highlights of the day (there were definitely lowlights too like scrapes/bruises, tears from all at different points and exhausted parents ha… that is just part of traveling with kids).
We spent some time in Snow Canyon and Skye requested a running picture.
We went to the bike park and I love Brooke’s look of determinations below. Skye insisted on bringing her push bike and she is a little TOO adventurous on that thing.
I’ve shown you a lot of pink frosted sugar cookies over the last few years on this blog (it’s a Utah thing) but we finally had one from the OG pink sugar bakery. And now I’m going to have a hard time eating them anywhere else because it was so much better. PS this is at Dutchman’s and you must go if you are ever in the area.
Skye was just enjoying smelling in the goodness.
If you do go, you have to have one of their pb and chocolate cookies too.
Angelica’s Mexican Grill will be somewhere we go often from here on out. These street tacos were unreal.
We spent some time at a pool…
During a walk in the evening Beck poked out his foot and kept it like this and it gave me so many flashbacks to when Skye would do this on our walks.
Friday favorites time….
*My friend is the creator of Dreamland Baby and she sent her weighted blanket over to help Skye with her sleeping. Skye hasn’t gotten up once since she started using it over a week ago. I need to send this friend of mine quite the gift basket to thank her. Brooke and Knox just got one too and while they don’t have problems sleeping, they are both loving the feeling of it on them while they sleep too.

*I’ve done this 30 minute vinyasa flow twice this last week and I am loving it so much.
*This episode from Running Rogue was just what I needed. I have felt so tense and tight with my running and this one was all about how to run relaxed because relaxed running = fast running. He talks about how to do moving meditation while running and gives awesome guidance on how to do it yourself.
*We rated this a 10/10. SO so good.
*I’ll be using this sunhat visor every single pool day from here on out. It rolls up so that it is easy to pack and hats don’t usually fit my head (my head is very large) but this type of visor absolutely does.
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
Youtube strength/pilates/yoga workouts—> anyone want to share their favorites with me and I’ll be forever grateful?
Do you prefer strength training at home or at a gym?
Has this summer felt a little different or very different compared to last summer?
