AM- Ran 6 miles on the treadmill at the gym
Had to take my new Musha shoes for a spin.
I was very careful not to get them dirty.
I ran .5 mile warm-up, 3 miles around a 7:08 pace, 1 mile at 6:58 or something and then the last 1.5 miles at 8 minute pace.
Love it when you can get a workout in in about 45 minutes.
Also love trying to match my outfit with new shoes.
First thoughts on the shoes. I really like how they’re lighter. As my body has gotten used to more mileage and running I’ve discovered I’m liking the lighter shoes more and more instead of the more supportive ones like the Nirvanas. Is that normal? A full review will be up after I run a few more times in these dull looking things. Ha ha.
PM workout- Taught a Y50X (HIIT) class and a strength training class at the Y
I was pretty worked afterwards.
Ever look in the mirror lady? Geesh.
I have a really fun recipe to share (it has to do with a new pizza crust and squash- go figure), but I can’t get my act together to do it justice this morning. I’m feeling pretty good about it though.
Check it out.
Mmmmm hmmmm….. I ate that whole thing last night because that’s what I do.
Want to know some random stuff?
There is never a dull moment around here.
Yep. Just a sample of what goes on while we’re trying to get out the door to get somewhere on time for a change. Lovely. And what is it with boys and pulling down their pants all the time? Someone’s been teaching them some things when I’m not around.
We have the coolest neighbors ever. Check out these chairs our neighbor made for the boys.
They make us fabulous chairs, I make them doughtzel balls. Somehow it just doesn’t seem fair for them.
My late night “office hours” have been looking like this lately.
My friend Janae has a much better set up with a Compex machine. I’m a little jealous. Sarah has one too and she’s a rock star with all the marathons she runs. Um, yeah, I want to be just like both of them. They inspire me daily. We’re good friends you know. He he.
I always have to have dessert. It can be super late at night and I can have just inhaled an entire pizza, but I always need a little something sweet afterwards.
Then with a little Trader Joe’s chocolate soy dreamy sandwich on top of that.
Loving the “layers”. He he.
We sell buffalo jerky.
Yeah, that’s right. We sell this stuff. It’s our own jerky and I’ve never even talked about it on the blog. Go me.
I want to give some away to you and figure out how to sell it online. It’s darn good. Hopefully I can get on that soon.
Okay, well, I gotta get a move on.
My goal for the weekend in to “walk the walk”. Lindsay sent me this great devotional the other day that said that we can say our priorities are one thing, but our true priorities are the things where we spend the most time, energy and attention. Kind of a nice reminder, yes? Sure I say I have priorities, but then is that really where I’m focusing all my time and energy? Something to think about.
And one little motivational quote for the day courtesy of Runner’s World:
“Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.”
Hope you get to “walk the walk” this weekend.
My next post will be a recipe instead of random nonsense.
