So it really has only been two days but we have already squeezed in a ton of fun so I thought I would pop in for an update 🙂
We started the day with a beach trip to meet some friends. I tell you being there at 9am is awesome, nobody else is around and it is not too hot yet – key with babes who aren’t old enough for sunscreen! We stayed until noon when it was starting to get busy.
Chloe loved the water!
Once we got home Chad made us smoothies, I feed Chloe and basically ran out the door to my hair appointment. Side note – Chad has been awesome letting me do things on my own these past few days, even an hour a day makes life so much easier! I chopped off a few inches and lightened up my hair for a change:
After I had a chiropractor appointment since I am broken. I joke that after 8 weeks of Hard Corps I hurt myself doing nothing. Friday night I tweaked my knee picking up Avery and Saturday night I fell asleep feeding Chloe in the rocking chair and pulled a neck muscle that oddly has really affected my shoulder to the point I can barely dress myself. What this does mean is a quiet workout week to rest everything up.
It was a nice evening so we took advantage and went for a walk to the park after supper.
The evening was spent doing yard work, watching American Ninja Warrior and foam rolling 🙂
Mid morning we packed up and hit the track for a speed workout. I have never done anything formal in past training plans but decided to do more formal speed runs this time around and the track is a great place to do so. We took turns running and hung out with the girls in between. Avery actually wanted to run with us but she had no runners, the crazy kid ran 800m straight without stopping barefoot! Then took a rest and did another 400m.
We did 2 warm up laps,1600m at 5:30min/km, 1200m at 5:10min/km, 800m at 4:50min/km and 400m as fast as we could – around a 4:00min/km then a couple cool down laps.
After we planned to do a walk but Avery spotted the park and off we went.
Our afternoon plans involved NO kids – woot woot! Chad’s Dad and Step-Mom watched the girls for a couple hours so we could have a date afternoon. Chad planned 9 holes at pitch and put which was really fun. We used to golf a lot pre-kids and both miss it. After we had some drinks and appetizers at The Brewhouse before heading home.
By the time we got home it was supper time and I had no desire to cook much so we had salad and smokies since we both were full from drinks and appies.
Tomorrow we planned to do a day trip out of town but then realized there was much more close by we wanted to do and yard work so instead we will do yard work in the morning then head out to Lacombe for the afternoon to check things out there and visit my Grandma.
