We need to stop eating so healthy all of the time.

May 28, 2013

I would like to introduce you to the only child in the world that enjoys getting their finger nails clipped.  It may have something to do with the fingernail song that I made up and sing to her while Billy clips them but she was giggling through all ten fingers.

For lunch Billy (I know, he was sick so I should have made him lunch) made us potato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches which was perfect for the overcast weather.

And then Brooke was entertained in the laundry basket for an hour.  Why do we even buy toys?

At around 5:30 pm I finally got out of my sweat pants to go eat froyo with reader Blair that is in town for 1.5 days.  Her first marathon was the BERLIN Marathon and she is also a CrossFit lover.

So Billy and I had froyo….

and then on the way home we picked up pizza….  (Brooke is becoming very sneaky)

Man, Billy and I really need to stop eating so healthy all of the time;)

How many miles are you planning on running this week?

Anyone been keeping track of their mileage for 2013?  How many miles have you ran so far this year?

What race did you travel the farthest to go run?

Who has tried cross-fit before?

I will probably do about 45-50 miles. We are on vacation in Florida and it is soooo hot! I am sweating buckets on my runs! I have my first 1/2 marathon in 1 1/2 weeks! I started keeping track for 2013…..but lost track after the first month :(….(I kinda knew I would never keep up though) :)

Sarah @PickyRunner May 28, 2013 at 5:10 am

You mean pizza isn’t healthy? ;) just kidding, but I do eat it at least once every 2 weeks. I feel like all babies love playing with makeshift toys more than real toys. Dogs too! No running for me for the next 2 weeks. Finally cashing in on the time off my coach has been wanting me to do since season ended last month.

Karen @ Runner Girl Eats May 28, 2013 at 5:10 am

I have not kept track of mileage, but would love to! 2014 resolution? Ran 5.5 on Sunday, and running again today but no goal mileage. Don’t you love that babies prefer household “toys” over actual toys? Too funny! Happy tues!

Can I get the words to the mail clipping song? I need it for my son, he’s not much of a fan of nail clipping. I try to explain to him how much his mummy loves manicures and pedicures but he doesn’t seem to share the love (he is only 3 months so maybe he’ll warm up to it)

Jade May 28, 2013 at 7:29 am

I’m not sure he will warm up to it, mine sounds like i am literally killing him the moment I bring the scissors out – I could never cut them when he was asleep when he was 0-5ish months as he would wake up, and now he is almost a year and it is horrible – horrible enough that I do wait at least two weeks in between the cuttings as I can’t stand the sound and the fight that ensues…. I think Brooke is a ‘freak of nature’ in this regard. What I wouldn’t give to have Brooke’s manner in nail cutting!!!!

I am not in training yet for my marathon in november, but i was still surprise by the 30 miles I put in this week. I usually try not to do that much since I am nervous over stress fractures and just in general my tired body.. but it just sorta happened!!

I CROSSFIT!!!! I love it! It has taught me such GREAT things about how to lift safely and how to push my body in a 10 min workout! it is great! It is expensive, and I quickly got sucked into the “cult” of it ((I am no longer obsessed with Paleo and crossfitting 6 days a week because it was not healthy for me nutritionally or physically)) but it is great!!

Linda @ running4two May 28, 2013 at 5:17 am

That’s so great that Brooke likes to get her nails cut! I have to wait until my daughter (she is 4 1/2 months old) goes to sleep before I can do it.

I plan on taking it easy this week because I am running a half on Saturday morning. I live on the East Coast and traveled to Vegas for the Rock and Roll race in December 2011. I believe you were also there :).

I am very new to the whole running caper! I had major knee surgery in November 2011 and took up running post rehab!

On the weekend I travelled 1000 miles to run my first ever race – 12km (7.45 miles)! I ran this in 66.51mins. I will run my first half marathon in August! ‘

Thank you for all your great posts and Brooke is DIVINE!!!

I don’t know what you’re talking about; froyo and pizza are a perfectly balanced diet. :P

I haven’t run much in the past week (my excuse that my legs are recovering from my half last Sunday, but it’s just been cold and rainy and I haven’t really wanted to go running) but I think I’m going to try to fit in at least 2 3-mile runs this week. Try, being the key word. :P

oh goodness, I don’t even want to know my mileage for this year, I’m sure it’s pathetic… I’m averaging 2-7 miles per week because my IT band keeps flaring up and I took off all of Jan and half of Feb… And froyo is totally healthy – probiotics!

I’ve never traveled out of state for a race, but I’m going to Jamaica (to photograph a wedding) this week, and I plan to organize my own race there!!! Actually it will be more like dragging my husband out for a little run before we eat ourselves into a food coma, but that’s pretty much a race, I think.

Lol on the nail cutting. My 3yr old loves going to the dentist, she actually asks to go!!! CrAzY! This week I’ll be running 12, 3miles every other day. Coaches orders. I think I’ve run 250 miles this year. The longest I’ve traveled was to do ING New York City Marathon. I’m not convinced to do crossfit but my brother loves it and has gotten great results. I prefer quality over quantity and not rushing through strength training. I have to pay close attention to my form all the time so I don’t think I would be a good candidate. To each there own:)

I tried a crossfit class about a month ago and honestly, I couldn’t walk for 3 days. I have never done so many squats, pull-ups, or push-ups in one hour in my whole life. It was an amazing workout! I just wish it was a little easier on the wallet.

I have never kept track of my miles each week/month/year. Oops. You would think with my Type A personality I would. But I have always just ran what I feel like for the day and don’t really make up my workout until I start doing it. Ha! (except for my 12 weeks training for the marathon). I probably should because it would be cool to know…and also good info so I know when to change my shoes.

I have gone to St George for a few races, and that is the farthest. I know. I really branch out, huh? One day I would love to do the NYC marathon. Do it with me please?

Remember when we tried Crossfit and it hurt to laugh for days? I have been back whenever Ashley lets me know friends come for free – and that is how it will have to be until we strike it rich.

That Brooke. I like her. My kids STILL love to play in the laundry basket when I am folding laundry. I still have to drag/scoot them around in it. And their favorite is for me to carry them up and down the stairs in it or raise it above my head and lower it to the ground (like an ‘elevator’) with them in it. And they weigh 40lbs….maybe I don’t need Crossfit ;)

I’ll probably do around 30 miles this week. That’s on the low side for me but I’GE got some tingles of a potential injury I’m trying to keep at bay. The farthest I’ve travelled for a race is about 2 hours so… not very far.

I have no idea how much I will run this week since I couldn’t get out of bed this morning and will now have to do my speed work on the treadmill. I’m the worst. Since I’m not “training” for anything, I just kinda wing it with my running mileage. I haven’t tried CrossFit but I am taking a weights class at my university’s gym and I love it! It also helps that the trainers are cute ;)

When we were little, my sister used to always cry and scream “you’re killing me!!!” when she had her nails clipped. As she got bigger, my dad had to be the one to clip her nails because he had to hold her down.

Don’t worry, my boyfriend and I are just as healthy…if not “healthier”. Haha.

How many miles are you planning on running this week?
40, give or take a few. I’ve put in 47 miles the last 5 days and may tone it down a few this week. (Not used to that many miles in any given 5 day time frame)

Anyone been keeping track of their mileage for 2013? How many miles have you ran so far this year?
So far, I have run 773 miles.

What race did you travel the farthest to go run?
I traveled about an hour and a half to go to Hershey, PA for the Hershey 10k. I’ll be going back in October for the Hershey Half Marathon

Janae, one of the things I love most about your blog is your enjoyment of all kinds of food. I think you do a great job balancing healthy with indulgent. You’re setting a great example for Brooke – all things in moderation!

This week is going to be low miles because I ran a lot last week. Was taking advantage of trail running while in Atlanta and ran six days in a row. I never run that many days back-to-back and my legs are toast! Even after taking yesterday completely off, my run this morning was rough!

I’ll probably run 20 miles or so this week, if that? I’m still new to running and my body can only handle it after a two or three day break in between, and since my first half is coming up in less than two weeks I am just taking it easy. I am so afraid of hurting myself and not being able to run this race, so I’ll only be going out a couple of times this week.
I thought about attempting to run a marathon for my 26th birthday, but since my bday is in November and it’ll be snowy here I may have to consider a destination race.

That’s very cute that she likes getting her fingernails clipped! I haven’t tried crossfit before. It looks super intimidating and I prefer solo workouts, so it hasn’t been something I’ve wanted to get involved in. From what I’ve heard from people I know though, it’s an amazingly effective workout.

This is the first year I’ve ever tracked my mileage. It’s not exact, since I forget to record on occasion, but so far around 650 miles. This past week I did 28, and am hoping to get in about 30 this week. I’m training for the Tahoe Marathon in September. The furthest I’ve traveled is from California to the Pittsburgh marathon at the beginning of this month. It was a fabulous time with my running besties.

Who CAN resist a Hot n’ Ready pizza for little Caesars!?! Not me! They are just so darn cheap.

10-12 miles. I know that for a lot of people that is really small, but I’ve only been running since April and am training for a 10k.
I haven’t been keeping track of my mileage for 2013, but I just got a Nike+ sensor (works really well, btw) and so I track with that.
I’ve never raced or done crossfit … I need to get with the program! ;)

I love that little hand sneaking into the pizza picture!
I haven’t tried Crossfit, and although it feels a little cult-ish to me, I’d be willing to give it a shot.

I’ve found that I’ve been really unhealthy lately… but I’m okay with it! Moderation! I’ll probably run around 20 this week. No plans or races so it’s weird to do whatever I want! I have never tried Crossfit but it looks super fun. Someday!

I have become obsessed with Crossfit in just 2 short months. I have never been good at running, but found out I am quite good at lifting heavy things :)

I’m SO SAD I missed this fro yo date! Next time!

I’m traveling to Chicago for the marathon this year – definitely the furthest I’ve traveled for a race but I’ve run on the beach in Thailand and throughout Paris and London – which were amazing! Hope you had a lovely weekend!

I’ve stuck with local races so far, but would LOVE to use races as an excuse to travel more in the future!

I love you and Billster’s matching water cups, too cute. And that potato soup looks delish! Is that a pre-made/canned soup or a yummy homemade recipe?

I’ve never ran NYCM marathon before – what are the qualifying requirements? I ran Boston last year, but I’ve always thought the qualifying times were harder for NYCM.
My favorite number is 24 or anything even! My June fitness goal is to build up my base mileage post-baby and get ready to begin marathon training again – woop woop! I may be running a 10k here or there this summer, but the only race I’m signed up for is a marathon in October. I wear whatever fits, which is a random mix of colors! I’m transitioning back to “normal” clothes from maternity and I can’t seem to remember what I wore before being preggo :s
