My Birthday was last weekend and I had a great time with our new little family :)
Baby girl is getting spoiled with all the snow days.
She likes to nap on the couch and sleep around my neck :)
We got to play in the snow today. Poor girl was cold and look at all the snow beside her!
We’ve been working on “sit” and “lay down” … look at that little butt sitting on the cold ground! I warmed it up by wrapping her up in blankets and sitting by the fire after we took pictures!
We love her so much! More pictures and videos on my Instagram!
Friday Workout: Rest day!! Only foam rolling and stretching for this lady!
After tough Tuesday-Thursday workouts, I kept my word and I am taking a rest day! I would really love to do a longer run tomorrow, so I have to take it easy today. My muscles need a break!
Ran some errands with Mommy today… picked up a pair of tan dressier shorts and a few shirts at Target.
Found a new Target nut butter to try! I’m not usually a cashew fan, but I thought I would try this mix out. Nutritional Facts: 2 Tbsp. 185 calories, 3g fiber, 7g protein.
I also picked up some chapstick. I have a slight obsession with chapstick and it has to be this brand in strawberry or cherry flavor. I have them stashed everywhere: at school, home, desks, purses, car, computer bag, gym bag, SPIbelt for running, next to the bed… I loose them constantly, but I can always find another because I have them everywhere.
Mom and I went to Panera for lunch… Half a Mediterranean Veggie sandwich on Tomato Basil bread, half a Greek salad and an apple. Seriously good and lots of feta cheese!
My Sunny Seeds came in the mail today! I asked if I could write a Sunny Seed Runner story for their blog and I got them in the mail today! Rocky tried to steal them, but I told him we can’t open them up until we use them for our running story!
Trying something new! I’ve gotten a few compliments on workouts I’ve posted (so nice!) and I decided to create an entire Workouts! tab at the top of my blog. I am hoping to post a different type of workout each Friday and keep all of them together in this page. Workouts may include: treadmill intervals, running playlists, half and full marathon training plans, strength training and yoga sessions. It’s a work in progress! I also want to know what workouts you did today!
Today is a “Glute Strength” workout from the March 2011 issue of Runner’s World!
This article says that glutes are an important muscle group for runners and are often neglected.
The glutes keep a runner’s legs, pelvis and torso aligned. Weak glutes can cause Achilles tendinitis, shinsplints, runner’s knee and IT band issues.
Most strength-training routines don’t isolate the glutes, so it is important to work them out on their own!
This article recommends doing two or three sets of these glute exercises – 12 to 15 reps two times a week.
What was your Friday workout???
