Workout – lets get creative here and make this sound so fun and exciting. core strength. 20 minutes. not exciting. I almost broke a sweat. embracing the rest. embracing the rest. My “coach”, who we will refer to as Coach B from here on out, told me yesterday that the #1 thing I have to learn how to do is rest. and not to set foot on the pavement until this weekend. ok. rest it is. little bit of information about Coach B – he ran a 3:16 marathon. when he was 11 years old. nuff said.
Life is going about 90 miles an hour right now, with little time to breathe, let alone write a blog. so, instead of filling you in on all the important things that you must know right this minute, I’m going to give you little bits of information that I will expound upon throughout the week. throughout the craziness of dance recital dress rehearsals and teacher appreciation parties and
running and playdates and other such things of life that fill the days to overflowing.
here are some little bits for you. in mostly pictures.
little bits of new sneakers
that may or may not have hit the pavement for a short run to be talked about tomorrow, which happened before coach B told me for the 10th time not to hit the pavement. I’m listening now. I promise. but look how pretty those mizuno precisions are. lovely.
little bits of family time
that little devil rode almost a mile on that little bike. pretty impressive I think for a 2 year old.
little bits of experimenting in the kitchen
little bits of modifying the kitchen experimenting
to come up with an amazing little peanut butter snack that I will call the amazing peanut butter protein fiber snack bar. dee lish.
little bits of spetzle
yes, spetzle. and I truly aplogize for the vomit inducing look of that picture. but that is spetzle and it was pretty darn good. if you have never had it, you should. and yes, I would be the one to order this spetzle at a bachelorette party dinner pre-night out. nothing like a good spetzle to bring on a night of fun and bachelorette shenanigans.
little bits of stripes
lotta bits of stripes actually. gap kids? crewcuts? are you looking for your next cover model? she’s got impeccable fashion sense.
little bits of
homemade grilled pizza and stuffed bread. amazing. so easy. we do a lot of grilling. we are still without oven.
little bits of strength
outside. where it should be. working on adjusting my vitamin D deficiency as well.
I will quickly admit that the lack of cardiovascular exercise and running is getting a bit difficult, but not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. it’s a little sad that I have no fun running to report on and no challenging speedwork to make me feel alive. I’m alive. and well. and resting. and it’s what I need to be doing. I keep reminding myself that rest does a body good. I will have plenty of speedwork when it’s time. until I feel 100%, there is no reason to keep breaking my body down in training. I will make much greater gains when I get back into running in a few days if I get back into it feeling all chipper and ready to run. It is a little bit strange to feel so out of shape, but I know how quickly I can get back into shape. and it is a relief to know that I have until November to get there. NYCM, I’ve got my eye on you. that’s the next big one.
little bits of racing decisions
that I have made that I will share with you. at a later time this week.
and go check out this GIRLS blog, if you don’t read it already. it’s just a great piece of writing. took the words right out of my mind and said them in a way that people can actually understand. love it.
little bits of randomness
we all know how much I love designer denim. and lululemon. and I love jesus and my family too. they all take a special place in my heart. but right now we are going to talk about denim. my fab sister in law shares the same love for denim that I do, and keeps me aprised of the denim deals. much appreciated.
here’s the latest, if you are into designer denim. LASTCALL.COM. check it out. hudson skinny jeans. additional 30% off their price, but just until today, I think. need I say more? other than don’t buy the last size 27 or 28 before I decide what size I am and whether or not I deserve it for a happy mother’s day present to me. or else I’ll be very sad.
those are all of my little bits for the day.
I will share the details of my little bits as we cruise on through this week.
what are your little bits this week?
I think a lot of people had some AMAZING races this weekend – lets hear about those little bits?!?
Have you ever grilled pizza? You should.
Have you ever splurged on designer denim, but not paid full price? You should. but you should never pay full price.
