We had our first ‘hot’ run of the year. So far, most mornings have felt pretty cool and breezy, but yesterday it was hot. It’s so easy to freak out and think we’ve lost all our fitness when we run in hot/humid weather, but please remember that isn’t true. Your fitness is still there, it just takes time to acclimate to the heat, and it truly takes a lot out of us to run in this weather.
I’m not going to lie; I am feeling pretty jealous that these three have new babies coming soon…
Isn’t it funny how it feels perfectly normal to call a bag of chips and guac a meal during the summer? Maybe I’m alone in this.
By the afternoon, my eyes were looking almost normal again!
For dinner, I made Mel’s Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burritos. I also added corn (Beck’s favorite food), this TJ’s rice, and avocado on top of them to make them a bit more filling. They were excellent, and they make the perfect leftovers to pop in the air fryer the rest of the week.
Let’s get into some tangents:
*If Beck hears the blow dryer turns on, he is in my bathroom seconds later to do the job himself.
*A summer bucket list item has been going to the restaurant on top of Sundance for their nachos.
*I had a lot of time to read over the weekend since I was in bed so much, and I finished up ‘One True Loves.’ I couldn’t put it down. I loved it so much. I love everything from this author.
*I saw that Molly read this, so I just downloaded it, and I’m hoping it helps. I haven’t done as much mental training as I have in the past, and it’s time to get back on that train. “What is grit really? …. When things get hard, you push harder. When you fail, you get back up stronger. When you don’t see results, you don’t get discouraged.”
Have any tangents for me today?
Tell me a food you refuse to eat.
-Olives. Can’t pay me to eat them.
Do you have that freak-out moment when you start running in the heat and feel like you’ve lost fitness?
Best summer treat/recipe, in your opinion?
