Let’s see here.
No one wants to see this outie belly button (that Joaquin has so eloquently referred to as a “penis” before) and lovely diastasis doing burpees. Ha ha.
Put them on top of some banana soft serve because I really felt like eating them with a spoon.
I also ate it in bed while doing work and watching the Chargers lose. Let’s not talk about that though.
Last night I got this email from the Runner’s World Challenge.
I’m in week 10 of my MCM training plan and today was the first time I had to do any kind of repeats. I’ve heard about the Yasso 800s before, but had never done them.
I’m not going to lie, I was a little nervous (okay, maybe a lot). tried to come up with a few excuses in my head, you know.
Eventually I got to the gym and on the treadmill. And guess what? I made it. Didn’t get the full 9 miles in like I was supposed to as I got a late start and had to teach a short BOSU class right afterwards (yeah, that was fun).
But….. I survived. They actually go by pretty fast, but thank goodness there were only 4 of them. I felt like barfing at least twice and regretted my spicy breakfast almost immediately. I also admittedly stepped of the treadmill a few times during the recovery jogs. Oopsies.
It was hard to run fast. It’s been at least a good 6 months since I’ve done that. I’m sure I’ll be feeling it a bit tomorrow.
And Beavis, I made the mistake of getting on a treadmill that automatically starts a cool down once you’ve been on it for 58 minutes. Sometimes I love that, today I didn’t. I had to restart it to get another cool down mile in.
Oh, and totally a side note, but really, it chaps my hide that cardio machines always overestimate how many calories you burn. Not that it matters that much, but if people rely on them they should know that they lie.
(Picture from Monday’s run.)
Okay, I totally have a lot I wanted to write about, but I’m tempted at the moment to try to go to Farmer’s Market really quick while Mom is hanging with the boys to scope out a few goodies.
here are just a couple of random things to leave you with.
We’ve been slowing down and getting a few extra snuggles in the morning the past two days.
Still doing the slow down challenge and have to take advantage of the mornings that we can. Tomorrow it’s back to preschool for week 2. (I will try to not post pictures, but I’m not making any promises.)
We’ve been eating Trader Joe’s guacamole like it’s going out of style lately. Seriously, good stuff.
I’ve had the same turkey taco salad lunch for the past three days in a row.
Today it was followed by cinnamon cocoa roasted kabocha with all the usual fixings.
I’ve been trying to not post kabocha pictures lately, so I’ll just show you this one of the perfectly roasted piece (in case you’ve been missing them).
And this one from this morning of some pretty cool kabocha secret spy goggles.
So, with this little reminder from the boy’s devotional…..
May you trust, fly, run and walk.
Have a great Tuesday night!
Have you ever done Yasso 800s or any kind of speed work?
Do the calorie counters on machines make you mad too or is it just me?
Is there something your family is eating a lot of right now?
