thursday- 6 miles on TM + shoulder exercises
Happy Friday everyone! I’m so excited for the long weekend, last weekend of our summer since J starts preschool on Tuesday(joy school).
I have been running a lot of shorter runs lately because I’m not training for anything. I’ve just been running for health and ‘me time.’ I’ve been wanting to get over the 3-4 mile hump I’ve been in and yesterday I had time so I went for it. I haven’t ran 6 or more miles since my half marathon 2 months ago! The plan was to run 1 mile at an easy pace and then 1 mile on an incline for 6 miles. Well, I did that for one mile and it did me in. That was fun ha. I stuck to a moderate(for me) pace the rest of the run stopping every 2 miles to do arm exercises. My legs haven’t felt tired in soo long, it’s a welcomed feeling!
Yesterday was a beautiful day out(finally no more rain) so J and I headed to Heather’s house. The kids played and we chatted, but it wasn’t long enough. I’m missing our weekly runs but our schedules haven’t matched up lately:(
After meeting at the park for a preschool meeting we headed home. After J’s nap is the best time. He always wants to snuggle and I’m cherishing every moment because I know it won’t be long till he’s not into snuggling with his mom(;
We made some chocolate chocolate chip banana bread together too. Best decision ever, they were so good. I found the recipe here.
LLater, Josh and his parents and brother and I had a temple date. It was exactly what we needed, thanks Bree for babysitting.</
