8 miles @ 8:52 average pace with Emilee to start my Wednesday morning. It was the best to get to hear every single detail about her marathon! I usually do speed on Wednesday but this week I needed another day of recovery because of the race and I’ll do a short speed workout today!
The BEST part of the day was picking up Knox. It had been 2.5 weeks since we last saw him!
He told me that Beck doubled in size while he was gone.
Skye asked if Knox was coming home every single day he was gone, she was so happy to see him.
We picked up Knox and then drove down to St. George! The extra face below is my niece, she needed a ride back home:)
Brooke has a family reunion on her dad’s side close to St. George and so we decided that we would just drive her there. Andrew has a few days off of work so we will just spend time in St. George while she is there and head home when she is all done.
At least Brooke and Knox had three hours in the car to hang out… after this trip, they will get a few weeks uninterrupted. There is a lot of planning that happens between working with three different families!
On the way down we stopped at the Creamery in Beaver and you have to go there if you ever have a chance. I had a version of my current favorite sandwich–> avocado, bacon, and cheese.
Knox learned how to milk a cow while we were there.
Random tangent today but I’m just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what you did to help! My left hand/wrist hurts SO SO bad. I have never had this happen before but I’ve been reading online about something called ‘mommy wrist’ and it sounds similar to what I’m experiencing. I always carry Beck with my left arm for many hours each day. I might have a low pain tolerance but it is really bothering me… has anybody else experienced this? It hurts to even type, but it hurts the most when I hold him or hold him while nursing. Time to learn how to hold him on my right side!
Brooke left and then we went straight to swimming with cousins.
And then we went on a short walk!
And I finished off the night with a warm tortilla with butter, cinnamon and sugar. Beck is reaching for any and all food that comes near him.
I’ll do three runs here which means I need three different pairs of running shoes ha… They were the first things I packed!
What day of the week do you usually do your hardest workout?
Anyone else ever had this pain in their hand or tendonitis anywhere in their body? What did you do to help it?
Having any aches or pains lately?
Do you like a lot of change when it comes to what you eat or do you stick to the same thing often?
