My current life quote that especially helps with workouts–> The more you look for the good, the more good you find! It’s so easy to find everything negative possible during a workout, but it is a lot more fun when you see all the good parts of the situation.
Peloton ride + 10 min strength for runners class.
And then, it was off to the doctor. The amount of mental strength it took to not itch my arm off during this test…
The results from my appointment were much different than I expected.
I am allergic to grass and some trees, so I need to take medicine before a trail run and be prepared with more in my pockets, so I’ll be good to go for now. Down the road, we will figure that out more once we get control of what I didn’t expect to find out, asthma. I had no idea. I guess when you’ve been living with something, it feels normal, but he had me do the tests and found out that I have it.
I don’t know much about asthma, so I think I’ll talk more about this on Monday, but it’s nice to have an answer to why I felt like I couldn’t breathe anymore last weekend (the pollen triggered it). I always have blue lips after a race (lack of oxygen) and cough pretty hard after a hard run/interval, but I didn’t know this is why. My tests were done at rest… so this isn’t just when I exercise but exercise and allergies can worsen it. Anyway, I don’t know much about what I’m talking about, but I will do a lot of research. I now have inhalers to use daily, so hopefully, those will help.
Andrew met me for this rice bowl before he had to go to work so we could talk about it all.
Our evening was with our neighbors at the park for a picnic.
Still at a stage where all four love the park!
Let’s get chatting about some favorites!
*I take my lip gloss very seriously. I wore the same one for decades because I just couldn’t find one that I love more. Until this one off of Amazon. The color, the feel, the thickness, the smell… it is perfect.
*I love a cute phone case, and this is my current favorite.
*The peach shakes at chic-fil-a right now. Andrew brought one home for me after work the other day (and it was a loooooooong day with a certain toddler in my life:), and my eyes filled with tears of joy.
Have any fun weekend plans?
Who offers the best milkshakes, in your opinion?
