Fast Friday

It's Friday again which means I need to share everything we have done since last Friday.

Last weekend was kind of a cold one so we took the kids to an indoor play place for a little while. It was pretty crowded though so we didn't stay really long. We decided to head to my parent's house to play in their yard. They have a big yard with lots of space to run around so we go to their house a lot to get some play time. Trevon played tag with the girls (I still couldn't run) and then we played mother may I for a little while before it got too cold.

We went home an no one felt like having a real dinner so we had find it yourself night and the kids had chicken nuggets. Then they a had bedtime snack picnic on the kitchen floor. 

I showed the girls some funny filters on Instagram the other day and they thought it was pretty funny.

 On Monday I went to see a physical therapist about my knee. He had me run on the treadmill for a minute to see what he could tell was going on. We figured one thing out, I  pronate a lot more on my right foot than I thought I did. My heel almost doesn't even touch the ground. This is why I had shin splints so much in high school. It took us a really long time to figure this out but I'm glad we know now so that if that becomes a problem again we know what to work on.

We came to the conclusion that I'm ok to start running again! It didn't hurt to run at all.  I have to start really slow and just do maybe a quarter mile at a time for now, but hey it's something to warm up with for my other workouts.  He gave me a scraping massage. I don't think anything has felt so good and hurt so bad at the same time. I got a nice bruise pretty quick.  Since then I've felt pretty good though, so far. 

If anyone in Utah County is looking for a good physical therapist, I suggest this one! 

J had a field trip to the aquarium on Wednesday and I got to go. It was fun to spend most of the day with her! We had enough time to see everything at least twice. The first time we went to the aquarium she was scared to go on the rope bridge but this time she went on it at least 5 times. 

After she went back to school for the last couple of hours, V napped and M and I spent time in the warm weather. 

While doing laundry, V is always sitting like this waiting for his blanket to be done drying. 

We got this tent for Christmas and it was a really great idea.  Every kid likes to sit and play in this. It's easy to clean up and it's easy to set up and it helps them use their imaginations.

My workout update:

I have been able to run a total of .75 miles this week. Haha, not a lot but it's something for now. I'll get back up there.

The good thing about not being able to run is that I've had more time to focus on my upper body strength.

Have a great weekend. Let's chat on Monday.

Did you have a security blanket that you hated being washed?

How far did you run this week?

What was one of your favorite Christmas presents you ever got?
