Another day with my friend, Robin, and my bike in the early hours of the morning.
I went into this workout thinking it wouldn’t be a big deal because it was an interval & arms ride, and I had never done one before. What harm could 5 lb weights do?
It turns out they can do a lot of harm. A lot.
I left the 45-minute workout with a new pr for the day, which I was pleased about! It was nice to get in some strength and cardio all at once.
Last random thing about spin… I’m not sure how I used to teach spin classes and talk the entire time. I must have been cheating on my tension big time;)
Skye’s best friend was outside waiting for her to get back after dropping off Brooke at school… it’s never too early for them to start playing and she was out the door ASAP.
I made my first thing from the Rise and Run Cookbook—> Green Eggs and Hammer On Superhero Muffins, and they were great! Packed with protein and iron… they suggest them before a run, but I think this will be better for after the run for me:).
I found a winner. You have to be in the mood for peanut butter, but this one is amazing.
We got some time together out on the porch. He is almost one year into his Nurse Practioner program. I’m not sure how he manages to juggle that with us and work but so far, so good. Nineteen months left to go, and then he is done for good with school.
Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas happened for dinner. I love Fatima’s recipe because it is so simple and delicious (it is listed in her ‘recipe’ highlight bubble).
Andrew and I ended the day with the Office episode with Michael eating fettuccine alfredo moments before his 5k. I love this episode so much.
Beck has had his second ear infection in less than a month (and he has had many before that), and they recommended that he get ear tubes. This current ear infection is a double one, and the doctor said it was one of the worst he has seen in a very long time. He also had a very high fever and stuffy nose (very good news= his lungs sound great because I was very worried about RSV). I’ve heard some people say that the ear tubes made the biggest difference for their little one, and I would love to hear from anyone else who has any experience with this situation. It has been an emotional few days with a lot of tears for many different reasons, but without the lows, we wouldn’t recognize the highs.
Just going to keep snuggling this little one and get him feeling better again. PS he needed Brooke to be touching him at the doctor’s office on Monday night.
PS I had written about the above thing with the highs and lows and then came across this section in Shalane and Elyse’s cookbook. There are so many similarities between running and life.
Ear infection stories? Success stories with ear tubes? Who has had them?
Did you ever have any surgeries when you were young or those with kids, have your kids ever had surgeries when they are still so little?
-I know the ear tubes thing is a very minor and short procedure but this is brand new territory for me!
Would you say you have a sensitive stomach with what you eat before you run?
-Over the years it has become more and more sensitive!
