My niece could babysit + Jo could run at the same time + the trails were calling our names + the air even felt brisk before the sun was out = a great morning.
Ten miles @ 9:22 average with about 1200 ft of climbing. Every time I am on the trails I am reminded why I had a PR in every distance in 2019—> I was on the trails so so much that year and they make you strong.
Look at me sticking to something other than running;). I think this will be the time (all of you that have read for ten years are probably rolling your eyes, ha;) that I stick to strength training because it scared me not being able to use my arm and all of the pain it was causing.
The ski racks on my car did a great job securing my band.
We were able to have one of my nieces over for the day, so I took them to Yogurtland for froyo (Knox went and had ice cream with a friend).
It had been way too long since my last Yogurtland experience.
A lot of time was spent on the front porch yesterday, and I kept good posture for a lot of the day. It feels like I’m learning a foreign language with this change in posture, and my entire core is sore because of it!
Let’s get going with some tangents!
Between the two of us, we have nine kids (well, technically my sister does have an adult child now) and we went to the grocery store just the two of us the other night. It felt so weird, so fun and so efficient.
*I saw these and I must know if anyone has tried them and what their opinion is of them. Cinnamon Life is my absolute favorite cereal, so I’m guessing this is good too?!
*My new work set up—> I raised my computer a bit so I’m looking straight ahead when I type rather than looking down at the screen. I also now have a weight-lifting book staring at me so that I stick to strength training.
*Running is hard. It’s also really fun and rewarding and beyond worth all of the hard parts.
Sometimes it feels like it is just hard for me and nobody else so I just wanted to remind anyone out there feeling the same way that you aren’t alone. There is growth in the hard things and that is why we keep doing it so keep on growing.
*Summer is going well for these kids.
*My niece dropped a knife on her foot and then had to have surgery. She will be in a cast for a while now and her dad (my brother) decided he would bedazzle it. He went to the fabric store to get materials and glued them on. She loves it.
Ever broken a bone? Ever had to wear a cast?
-I broke my arm one time when I was racing my brother… he was in his car on the road and I was on rollerblades trying to take a shortcut through the grass. I did not win.
Have you watched any of the Olympic Trials? What Olympic event are you looking forward to watching the most?!
Has anybody gotten any awesome deals from PRIME DAY on Amazon? Tell me so maybe I can copy you;)
Could you give me a tangent or two or three?
