Lunch run with Andrew!
We took the littles over to my parents’ house while we were running/riding. Skye basically pushed us out the door to leave because she said we were talking to my mom for too long.
It was my first time doing a ‘challenge run’ (trails the day after a speed workout) in a long time and my body could tell.
It is a strange feeling to be running on snow with a tank top on and sweating…
This run was hard from the very first step.
I just could not get in the groove and it was a good thing Andrew was there to keep me going.
We only got lost once and climbed 1164 ft for the 8 miles @ 9:17 pace.
I need to pick up my cadence on the trails!
For dinner, we had Megan’s Chicken Cream Cheese Chili (we always add an extra can or two of tomato soup)! Also, I just made it on the stove last night because I had rotisserie chicken that just needed to be warmed up!
Everyone in our family loves this soup.
Time for a few of my favorite things:
*Sarah Sellers posted this about Keira D’Amato and it gave me goosebumps… A lot can happen in four years. Keep dreaming!
*The best face wipes I have ever used… I especially love them when I travel and don’t have everything with me. They are amazing.
*Trader Joe’s Valentine’s goodies and cards ($1 each)! The gummy Xs & Os are my favorite.
*A company sent me the Theragun Mini and it is SO easy to bring with me anywhere I go… especially in the car when Andrew is driving. It is a fabulous massage gun but if you are looking to spend a bit less and you don’t care about the size, I also really love the Sharper Image massage gun. Both are winners in my book and a tool I love for injury prevention. I’m trying to be SO diligent with all of the recovery as I am reintroducing speed and trails… I’m not wanting to take another month off from running like last October.
*I feel like it is my duty to share all of my favorite super soft clothing items that you will just want to live in—> especially when it is a $20 sweatshirt. (Also, these are the Senita Step Up Pants in bronze ((code JANAE for 15% off))
*Just in case you are a newsletter fan, Nicci told me about the free running newsletter from The New York Times and it is awesome. I look forward to the Fast Women newsletter every week too.
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
Would you rather get flowers or chocolate or something else?
Any running newsletters/websites that you absolutely love?
