Fast Friday

This has been one busy week! So let's get right to the Fast Friday update!

Last weekend Trevon took the kids to get the truck's tires changed. For some reason, this is something the kids always like going to do with him. So they took the Ipad and watched Planes while they waited.

While they were doing that, I went and got my workout done for the day.

And when they got home they brought me these amazing roses for Mother's day!

Later that day my mom and sisters went to get pedicures done. This is our Mother's day tradition and gift from my mom.

We did our church stuff on Sunday. V looked so handsome in his tie and suspenders.  It didn't last long so it was good we got this slightly blurry picture of him when we did.

For family night on Monday, we took the kids to our high school's all class reunion. They built a new high school and will be slowly tearing ours down. We got to see all of our old teachers and some friends that were there too. It was a lot of fun to show the kids where we met and introduce them to my high school coach!

On Tuesday I helped a friend out with some new equipment he got at his gym for physical therapy. While I was helping him, V sat and played with his cars and bear and the girls were at school.

Wednesday the girls had a makeup gymnastics class. When my sister showed up we realized we were dressed exactly the same. Even down to the shoes.

Thursday M's school had the last day of school/field trip. We went to a petting zoo at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi Utah. M's favorite part was the pony ride. V wouldn't try it. He was pretty tired by then so he was just a little grumpy.

V's favorite part, though, was jumping around in the playhouses.

Then M had her preschool graduation. It made for a busy day but it was a lot of fun. We were all worn out and ready for bed by the time we got done.

My sweet neighbor brought these over to me for mothers day. Chocolate covered frozen strawberries and they are as good as they sound.

And then my soon-to-be sister in law posted these on Facebook and I laughed way too hard at them.

Here's what my running looked like this week:

Saturday: Tempo run --> 3 ish miles. This day didn't get tracked properly so it's a close guess haha.

Sunday: rest day

Monday: At home workout/lots of walking. 

Tuesday: Speed work --> 2.6 miles 

Wednesday: Rest day 

Thursday:  easy run --> 2 miles

I have been so sore for some reason for the last couple of days. I think it's the speed work I did on Tuesday but I'm not really sure. And it's been a really crazy week. So training has not gone as planned but I am glad for the whole 7.5 ish miles that I was able to get in this week. Hopefully, I'll be adding much more to that soon.

What are you looking forward to this weekend?

What did your training look like this week? Any missed workouts?


  1. I am all for pedicures! On mother's day or any day. Looks like a fun and busy week

  2. It's funny that you and your sister showed up wearing the same outfit. I have an identical twin, but we live 500 km apart. We once showed up to a wedding wearing the exact same dress, was not planned! I love you mother's day tradition of having your toe nails painted!

    1. hahaha that's awesome. My sister and I are not twins but people always think we are. So when something like this happens, we end up confusing people really bad.

  3. Looks like a wonderful Mother's Day! How funny that you and your sister were dressed exactly alike!!

  4. Those flowers are beautiful! We have preschool graduation in a week. I'm so sad!!

  5. Love that you and your sister showed up dressed exactly alike :)

  6. The pedicures is a fun Mother’s Day tradition. Us mamas deserve some pampering every now and then. :)
