Another round of dry-needling. I had two of the kids there with us, so I really had to be careful with my words;). My PT also did it in my calf, which hurt pretty bad but nothing like the heel. Slowly but surely, things feel like they are improving. I also had a sports massage/scraping session before the dry needling, and I am going to a podiatrist today! I’m excited to see what he says.
Beck wanted to join me while I sat there but that didn’t last long…
He never stops wiggling when he is awake.
Skye went to school, Beck napped at my mom’s house, and we went on a date. Biking doesn’t hurt in the slightest (my PT told me to go for it:) so we explored some trails. We were going down a steep hill, and I lost control and flew over my handlebars. Luckily, I still had my sweatshirt on at that point so I didn’t get too scraped up (I need biking clothes!).
We were on very beginner trails ha, I don’t know how Andrew does the trails that he does.
Andrew was happy to see me add MTB to my favorites on my watch:)
We picked up Beck and then grabbed something to eat. Those teeth are coming in… they terrify me each time I feed him ha.
Andrew added some more friends to our front and the last highlight of the day was soaking in the hot tub with the kids (while Beck slept).
This week’s Friday favorites:
*I have two new foods that I tried last weekend and I must share them because they are good. DRIED WATERMELON?! I was skeptical because I’m not one to usually want to eat a watermelon rind, but these were incredible. My friend said she got them at Sam’s Club.
*Some other friends with us just returned from living in Australia, and they brought back lbs and lbs of chocolate. They had us try this one, I was very skeptical but it is now my favorite candy. THE JELLY CANDY INSIDE THE CHOCOLATE WAS TOO GOOD.
*This quote from Alexi Pappas. If you don’t hit your goals, this is the silver lining. Let’s all keep going after them until we do… it is making me very excited to get up and run!
*Now that it is getting colder outside, my girls love these stuffed animals that you warm up in the microwave (the thing Brooke’s head is on). I can’t find the same ones that we have, but this one is very similar! It helps them to feel extra cozy.
*The amazing Hollie and Jonah. Tears streamed down my face when I saw what they did together last weekend. I’ve met Hollie once, and she is the best of the best.
*Ashton’s post—> How Having 3 Kids Instead of One Has Taken Me From an A+ Mom to a Proud C-ish Mom. I laughed the entire post and could relate big time ha.
*Renee shared this with me… get ready to tear up.
*This scene of Andrew mopping while holding Beck… It just made me happy.
Who is running CHICAGO this weekend?
-I am also very jealous about this one… it is a dream marathon for me! Can I track you? Does anybody know someone that is doing both Chicago and Boston?
Have any favorite things from this week?
Ever had a bike crash? Fallen while running?
Have any fun plans for the weekend?
