Weekly Recap

Happy Monday folks! Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for a fabulous week! Here’s a recap of last week…

This kid and her wispy hair! She used to have such a full head of dark hair… not so much anymore. At least she’s still cute <3


Sometimes you just need help slowing down on those easy runs… this is when a friend who’s looking to you to get faster (like I do with Jolene) comes in handy. I help pace her to a faster time, which MAKES me slow down. Win-Win.


Had dinner over at my parents this week (Todd had a quick work trip to Mexico) and my mom whipped up a healthy and delicious meal! Grilled pork loin with mango salsa and roasted broccoli/cauliflower- yummo!


I burned myself making muffins on the top rack of the oven when I was pulling them out. OUCH! Said muffins were a welcome home for Todd. Pain is love ๐Ÿ˜‰

Wednesday’s midweek run and Sunday’s Long Run were both FILLED with tempos. I always nail my treadmill tempo runs, but outside in the heat/humidity/sun (it’s always sunny at the end, even when we start uber early! FL is the sunshine state after all ๐Ÿ˜‰ is killer. My Sunday run was much harder. I had 4 tempos after the 8 easy and even after adjusting the pace, I could only do 2. I felt light headed again like 2 weeks before. Kara really must’ve done a number to me hormonally because I never used to struggle this much, but I am losing WAY too much water. Time to make a doc apt… or try salt tabs ๐Ÿ˜‰

Had another yummy lunch from Whole Foods… it was burger weekend or something and they had SO many burger samples around the store. I’m pretty sure I ate a whole burgers worth before even reaching the hot bar! Threw in a froyo date, too for good measure.


And this finally happened… she’s been pulling up on everything and now her crib can be added to the list! Exciting times ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. It looks like Kara’s hair is getting lighter too. I hate when I burn myself on the oven rack! I admit to having done that way too many times. Mango salsa is yummy on everything! Great training week. Thanks for linking, Heather!!

  2. Going to Whole Foods for lunch is my favorite thing to do – going for dinner ain’t too shabby either. I am ADDICTED! I actually plan on walking up to Whole Foods in a bit to grab my dinner for later – because I mean, my world is food. HAHAHAHAH!

  3. Whole foods and fro yo =Awesome!
    Great way to get in the miles and tempo despite the heat. You are still getting in some speedy times! I would suggest trying a salt tab or even add in a couple hundred extra calories a day. I’m a heavy sweater as well and I’ve noticed that I would also feel light headed and extra fatigued after my harder runs while I was nursing my babies. I noticed it Especially after all the baby weight was gone and my body was pulling extra calories from both the increase of intensity and duration of exercise as well as producing milk and nursing. If you can’t fix things by manipulating nutrition and hydration then check with your GP/OB. I’m sure it will be easy to remedy!
    Again, great job this week chica!

    • Thanks so much for the advice! I really try and stay on top of the hydration piece by drinking a lot and having Nuun often throughout the day. Makes sense to add even more calories into my diet with nursing and I have been, but maybe I should up them even more, especially on Saturday. Thanks again ๐Ÿ™‚
