The time I looked FORWARD to strength training…
It was so hot (87!) on my run that all I could think about was making it to the gym to get to the air conditioning. I’m doing the stuff my PT gave me and adding workouts in from a few different soures—> Megan, DeliciouslyFitNHealthy, and Caroline Girvan. Call it the placebo effect but I think I am actually already feeling stronger after just a few weeks of being consistent.
I was talking to someone that knows a lot about running a few weeks ago and he was saying that I’ve probably hit my peak or close to my peak with my marathon times if I am going to continue to JUST run… The thing that will take me to the next level will be adding strength training to my training and he said that can make a big difference with my times. Excited to see what happens next year—> I’m still planning on Chicago and I’m motivated!
I listened to Ali’s episode with Emily Sisson during my run and it was so good!
What traveling with kids really looks like. Just waiting in the parking lot while Andrew went inside the store because that is a lot more doable than taking everyone inside sometimes.
We met up with my sis-in-law and her kids at a ninja gym. These kids had 60 minutes to run around like crazy and get out all of their energy. Unless you are in a pool, it’s pretty hard to be outside in the middle of the day in St. George right now so this was the perfect option.
Beck enjoyed cheering everyone on.
One of my nieces then babysat so we could go out for our anniversary.
We decided to go and eat at the exact place where we went the night we got engaged. These bread twists are heaven.
And then I did something extremely selfless…
I went to a scary movie with Andrew. He was THRILLED that I would do this with him ha. I only watched about 60% of the movie (I’m good at knowing when to close my eyes) but it was actually really fun.
The treats were winners.
Afterwards we were both feeling very stressed from the movie so we went to a very calming place for the both of us;)
I don’t have any Friday Favorites this week (Andrew is thankful I took a break from Amazon for a minute ha;) but I will link to the previous few weeks of favorites in case you are needing some retail therapy—> HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE!
Scary movies… Yes or no thank you? Who has seen Quiet Place 2?
Looking forward to anything this weekend?
Strength training people—> did it make a big difference in your running? TELL ME!
