9.13 miles with Emilee & 15 minutes of total body strength to start my week. I have no method with my strength training right now besides trying to get something in 4-5 days a week. I try to make sure I’m not doing lower body strength the day before a hard workout and usually try to do those workouts right after I finish a speed workout. Some days my strength is 5 minutes, and some days it is 30 minutes. The goal is to stay consistent, and even a 5-minute core class leaves me sore!
I’m going to jump on the bike today and attempt a 60-minute class (writing it here so that I don’t back out haha).
I have many tangents today…
*My brother has been experiencing a lot of feet pain, and I influenced him to try out Hokas. I am excited to see what they do for him.
*Every one of these stuffed animals must be present in Skye’s bed for her to fall asleep. She calls roll each night.
*I made this buffalo chicken to go on top of fries with blue cheese dressing (like my favorite Cubby’s fries), which was amazing. We had roasted brussels and strawberries on the side to complete the meal. I try to have a fruit and veggie at each meal!
*This is how Beck sleeps every night, which is hilarious because Andrew sleeps the same way. He sleeps on top of his hands/arms (but not with his knees up like Beck). All of the boys in Andrew’s family sleep like this too!
*We grabbed some hot chocolates & went on a drive in the mountains.
*We also drove and parked up on a hill to watch the sunset a different night.
*Brookie wanted to make a cake over the weekend, and she created this cake castle. She also made dinner the same night for us… I might never have to cook again:).
*I’ve complained on here a bit about how bad my cramps have been after having Beck. Many people told me about mixhers and how it helped them out a ton with this problem. I reached out to them, and they also offered me a discount code for any readers that want to try too—> JanaeB10. I’ll share my thoughts over the next few months as I try them!
*This post was written with the help of Beck;). Some days he wants to run away from me every moment he is awake, and some days he doesn’t want to leave my lap. It is always a guessing game.
*This question is from Kat—> “I was wondering if you or your readers have ever had any problems with this area of the foot? It’s on the outside of my left foot, isolated to a spot about as big as a quarter. I don’t even know what to call it to do any research! It’s mostly when I stretch over something (like stretched over a bed with my feet on the floor), not really when I run. Any feedback is appreciated!”
Do you have an air-fryer? What is your favorite thing to make with yours?
An important question from us—> Andrew washes new clothes before he wears them and I do not… What is the correct method, in your opinion?
Any running pet peeves?
