The cooler temps we are having right now are HEAVENLY!
Ten miles @ 7:29 average with the Runner’s Corner crew.
Their workout was 4 x 2 miles, and my goal was 3 x 2 miles, but I didn’t quite hit that goal…
.5 miles (6:10 pace)
2 miles (6:03 average)
2 miles (6:49 average)
1.5 miles (6:25 average)
My paces were all over the place, but the effort was the same. The route we did included a lot of up and down, so the paces matched each interval’s course! I did the workout a little different than 3 x 2 miles because I was late and caught them during the last half mile of their first interval, and I just needed to get back home as fast as possible.
Caffeine was needed before (and after ha) the workout.
Skye insisted on putting her arm around Brooke for a pic.
And then two neighbor boys came over to play for a bit. It’s crazy to me, but Beck already follows them around wanting to play. Skye then went to their house while Beck napped, so Skye got a full day of friends!
I might be jumping on the soup train a little too early in the year, but one of Andrew’s favorite things ever is french onion soup, so I made that for him. It was so good, but the kids were not interested in this!
Let’s chat about a few random things:
*Andrew has started his Halloween celebrating.
*Don’t be surprised if Skye FaceTimes you anytime soon. She learned a new song at preschool, and she wants to sing it to every human she knows.
*Beck is my only child that will eat sushi with me.
*Our chickens are doing really well, and I will never get sick of seeing my kids collect eggs.
*My brother with seven kids posted this on Facebook. SEVENTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS!
*Megan sent me this picture from a few years ago, and before I realized it was from 3 years ago, I thought, “Why is Beck wearing a girl’s shirt?” They look so alike to me.
*Speaking of old pictures, I saw this one of Brooke and Curly at my sister’s house, and it made me tear up.
*Something I do before I go to bed at night now that mornings are busy—> I get everything prepped for breakfast so it can be made as quickly as possible. I do things like getting out any pans/utensils I might need, putting pancake batter in the fridge, chop spinach up for the eggs (my kids will only eat it in small pieces ha), and it helps so much. Everyone also has all of their clothes out and ready, and the kids eat school lunch (it’s free this year for everyone) which makes things easier. The kids know if they want a home lunch, they need to make one that night before:).
I checked out of making lunches this year!
Do you use caffeine before a workout?
-A small amount before a run is my favorite because if I have too much then my stomach hurts!
Any time-saver tips that you have for busy mornings (or busy any time of day)?
Would you eat sushi with me or no way?
Are you ready for soup season?
