I confess…..I have a running shoe fetish! I love running shoes and right now they are coming out with all kinds of new models! Yes, I am that person who could care less about any of my other shoes and the most expensive shoes that I own are my running shoes :). This last season I really took a liking to my Mizuno’s. While I do still really like this shoe (I still have a brand new pair ready to be used), I really want to give the Brook’s Pureflow a try! This particular pair has caught my eye!
On another random note…..nothing motivates me to stretch and do my foam rolling like a hint of an injury! As soon as I feel like something is off I run to my foam roller 🙂 (something is off with my hip).
I do a lot better in the stretching department in the warmer weather. It is just nicer outside so I stay outside and stretch and I have more time. I also am better about icing and ice baths (which I HATE) in the summer. There is absolutely no way you are getting me in an ice bath after a run in the cold!
And let me tell you…it has been cold! We did this awesome science project on Monday where we boiled water and then brought it outside and threw it into the air and it turned into snow in the air…totally worked!…kinda hard to get pictures of, but here’s what we got
It was pretty cool!
Yesterday I was able to do 7 miles outside and it really wasn’t too bad but Monday was a treadmill day! I also have 2 races in mind that I am pretty excited about (more to come on them next week)!
My mind has for the most part been on our upcoming weekend! This weekend we will be traveling to Maryland and the final decision will be made on if and when we will be moving there! I am excited and anxious and a little nervous all at once. It helps me to remember that God has a plan for our family and knows all the details of the situation.
Onto my next random thing…
I LOVE my crock pot! Tonight’s dinner is chicken tacos. Super easy thanks to my crock pot!
2-3 lbs of frozen or thawed chicken breast
taco seasoning (I make my own but you can use a package)
16 oz oz Salsa
Put in all in the crock pot on high for 4-6 hours or low 6-8 hours. If you are using frozen you will need the longer time.
Add soft shell tacos, sour cream and some guacamole and YUM!
We also picked up these to make…..who didn’t love pudding pops as a kid?!
Any random things you want to tell me about…go!
Did you have Jell-o Pudding Pops as a kid?
