Another week down, I do feel like the weeks are flying by! I am still playing it safe with my long runs so I did my “long run” for the week on the treadmill of six miles. I was pleased that my knee did not hurt at all while running (win)! As the day wore on I could tell it was stressed so I am not completely out of the woods yet.
This is how the week went down:
Monday: 3.3 mile steady run on the treadmill.
Tuesday: Rest day
Wednesday: Two easy miles before strength training.
Thursday: 1.75 miles pushing the double (so it counts for double right?)
Friday: Fiveish miles with some strides in the middle.
Saturday: Two miles with the family.
Sunday: Six miles on the treadmill, with progression along the way and a fast finish.
Totals: 20 miles and really excited to be adding on the miles. Can’t wait until this is closer to 50 miles a week. Slow and steady, hopefully we will be closer to that total by November.
Cory took the kids out for a run while I stuck to the treadmill. While out they ran across (not over!) a tarantula.
It’s crazy the wildlife we see in this neighborhood!
Don’t worry they didn’t touch it.
Emmy’s head is so much better today, it’s amazing to me how quickly kids can heal!
For the afternoon we watched Cannon’s soccer game and he scored his first goal.
So proud of our little guy. I don’t care if he is great, or what sport he ends up playing I just hope he learns to love moving his body and being active.
For dinner we had salmon and broccoli. Cory found this amazing recipe:
It’s so good, the kids love it too, we just leave the chili flakes off for them!
How was your week?
Found any great recipes lately?
