Today was a good day but also a bit of a comedy of errors.
We woke up wanting to get outside for some movement. We are trying to get the kids out walking more to get them ready for our big Utah trip in March (more details coming soon!). The weather last week kept us inside but this week is supposed to be must better.
We went to a local trail to get some miles in.
It was pretty muddy and icy.
Unfortunately Emmy slipped on some ice and dunked her foot in cold water. We cut it short because she was pretty sad, I am very ready for spring!
We made personal pizzas for lunch, Emmy has been very creative with how she has been eating.
How cute are these bunny plates?!? The kids love them, I picked them up at Target.
Cory napped with Emmy and Cannon hung out with me while I worked on some athlete schedules.
When Emmy was up we decided to all go out for a family run.
The kiddos have been loving getting out to run with us. It’s a fun fartlek run because they sprint ahead then stop to play with something.
We stopped at a playground for a bit but Cannon accidentally went down a slide into an icy deep puddle. Poor thing was completely soaked. We didn’t have a spare set of clothes for him but we did have the stroller and a big blanket. It was too cold for wet clothes so we stripped him and he hung in stroller in a blanket. He was sad that he didn’t get to run home but at least he wasn’t hurt.
We spent the rest of the night just goofing around.
I was very excited to play an entire game of Candy Land, following all the rules. This was a first for us. Very excited for more family game nights.
I decided to take on a new (to me) challenge. Last year back in May/June when people were wanting to break their quarantine funk there was the idea of getting up early every day to run or workout circulating. I didn’t do it then but I am going to attempt it now.
My goal is to get up every single morning at 4:00 AM and run at least 3 miles every day. The idea is that it will be easier if it becomes a habit doing it every day.
I started this on the 19th when we were exactly a month out from our trip to Utah. I won’t be getting up to run in the dark by myself in Utah but if it works out then I will resume when I get home. I am sure the first few mornings will be rough but I am hoping it gets easier with time. Wish me luck!
Tried any fun challenges lately?
