Month: July 2017

As the title says, I have a lot to recap from last week, so let’s get to it! Last week we were a bit worried that Kara was getting sick. She didn’t have a fever but felt warm and had a slightly running nose and cough. Todd ended up staying home with her Monday and Tuesday and sent me all kind of fun pictures and videos! This was my fave… I got a new “toy” to add to my running data obsession 🙂 The Milestone Pod. You can see just SOME of the data it provides below. It syncs up […]

Wahhh Wahhhhhhh. Let me just start off by saying that this was the best cancelled cycle we’ve had. Confusing? Well… this was our first cycle with my new doctor and I REALLY like him. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that he’s A-OK with me running, which I’ll get back to. He is much more attentive and INVOLVED. I literally see him EVERY appointment. HE does my ultra sounds and checks my follicles. I think I mentioned in my last infertility post that at my old practice I only saw the doctor when I was willing to pay an $80 consultation […]

I got in two really great runs with Jolene last week. I don’t know what happened, but out of no where, my comfortable pace dropped to the low 8:00’s. Not gonna lie, it felt good! I know running with Jolene is what helped. Miles fly by with her. I really focused on listening to her footsteps to increase my cadence and it worked! Look at the difference between the first and second run! I was also able to keep my heart rate at a respectable 157-160, which, for that pace in the heat and humidity, I was happy with 🙂 Kara […]

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! We kept things low key, with the normal running eating and family time, but lets start with last week… Every Monday I take a rest day. Even (especially) when I was marathon training. It’s super important to let your body rest so your muscles have time to repair and work harder for you next time! So instead of a running pic, I’ll show you a delicious everything bagel from Western Bagel (160 cals, 21 carbs, 19 protein- use code HRFBagels for 15% off) with cream cheese. Love these things. I was […]

Happy Monday! Last week was a weird one, huh?! We had to work Monday, had Tuesday off and then worked the rest of the week. Made for a very unproductive week, work wise, if you ask me, but productive in every other area, haha. On Tuesday, we went to the Glazer Children’s Museum with Nana. If you live or are visiting Tampa and have kids you HAVE to go there. The mission of the Glazer Children’s Museum is to create learning environments where children play, discover, and connect to the world around them to develop as lifelong learners and leaders. Kara […]

I thought it would be fun to do a WIAW about my food and routine on a work day when I’m running. So here it goes… Wake up at early-o’clock! Depending on my run, I’ll either drink Nuun or Amino Energy or both, while I foam roll. After sleeping all night, my legs are tight and need a little warming up before I start working them. I save the BCAA’s for after a run. Start running! I either hop on the treadmill or meet Jolene to run outside. During the week I keep my runs to 6-8 miles and vary […]

I’m one of those unlucky people that had to work today- wah wah. But that’s OK… half the people took today off so it’ll be quiet at work. Today is Kara’s 1 year 7 month Bday, so we took some extra time this morning to hang out. Last week started on a high note with this delicious brownie… A lady at work makes them and they are so ooey and gooey and rich and fudgey and perfect. I started tracking my heart rate during my runs thanks to my Heart Zones Blink 3.0. I like that I can wear it […]
