A 30-minute hip-hop ride with Robin on the Peloton before Brooke went to school. For the last little while, I have been sleeping in until Brooke needed to get up so it felt weird to work out first thing in the morning again.
After Brooke went to school, Andrew and I did a bodyweight workout. During one of the moves, the instructor said to imagine our favorite drink on our backs to help us keep a flat back. Andrew said he was picturing chocolate milk on his back and I said I had hot chocolate on mine. We both started laughing because we realized we are basically children.
My massage therapist told me to get a better tool for a deep tissue massage to use on my calf, achilles, and foot, and this thing feels amazing. I think it might be time to run again soon?! I am very nervous about getting back at it again.
My massage therapist also told me to get fitted at the Peloton store for my bike to avoid a different injury from riding incorrectly. Yep, my seat was not high enough at home (by kind of a lot… even though I thought I had followed the instruction video well!!). They filled out a card for me to take home to know exactly where to set everything from here on out. I’m very happy we drove up north to go and do this!
The employee helping us had us try out the treadmill while we were there and wow, the nobs to adjust your incline and speed are just too easy to use.
After I told you that I suddenly fell in love with beets, a few Utah friends recommended that I go to Blue Lemon to try the roasted beet salad. There was one close to the Peloton store, so we went for it and you were very right, it was heavenly. The southwestern chicken sandwich and tri-tip tacos were terrific too. I wish we had this restaurant closer to home.
Next to the above restaurant was an ice cream shop we had never tried (Handel’s), so we had to pop in, and the brownie cookie dough flavor spoke to my soul.
The worker asked if he could give Beck his own small cone, and I had never seen Beck so happy in his entire life.
If you have a Costco membership, I’m going to need you to grab some of these. They are one of our favorite things there.
I cannot thank you guys enough for the comments yesterday. They got me even more excited to experiment with my training. I loved what Kari said about it being ‘a mystery you get to solve.’ Another reason we love running—> we get to learn so much about ourselves and how our body responds and adapts!
And to end today on a high note: Beck figured out how to turn on the bidet… The toilet seat was down, but it still managed to get water EVERYWHERE.
He was so proud of himself.
Andrew and I are looking for new bedding, and we are having a hard time finding anything we like… Recommendations for places to get bedding that is a good deal?
Have you solved any mysteries about your running/training/body recently?
Those that have been injured—> How did you know it was time to get running again? Were you nervous?
Chips… Delicious or not your thing? If you love them, what is your favorite kind?
-Flavored tortilla chips are my current #1.
