I’ll never understand toddlers.
We spent the 4th with family; Husband’s brother came up from Portland with his girlfriend – wahoo!! For brunch we all piled up in the car and met up with my sister in law and her family at IHOP. As if we weren’t full enough, we then went for frozen yogurt [mine was cheesecake, raspberry, almonds and graham cracker crust. the secret is filling your bowl at the bottom to ensure all around deliciousness]. Coming back home, we fired up the grill a few hours later and made a decent amount of food. While everyone was in the kitchen I snuck off for a 3 mile run. When you volunteer to make a quinoa salad you can afford to do that, since it takes all of about two seconds to do [by the way; chilled quinoa, lime juice, mango, blueberries, green onion. you’re welcome!]
Afterwards, we went to a neighbor’s house and sat by the firepit watching the fireworks. I love sitting by the fire and just hanging out with the ‘usual suspects’ – they feel like family to me, and I’ll never forget the first group of people that made my first Army post ‘home’. *warm fuzzies*
I definitely didn’t meet my goal for week 1 of this month in regards to the cross training I wanted to do here at home. Granted, there’s still today and tomorrow, but I don’t foresee doing 3 hours and 45 minutes worth of work in two days. But, crazier things have happened. I really want to try BodyRock workouts, I just need to pick one that doesn’t look too intimidating. A HUGE thank you to Tracie, who recommended that. You should check out her blog; she’s vowed to do a running related post every day for a year as a promise to herself to learn more about the sport. Topics so far have covered Olympic hopefuls, running form, and nutrition. Definitely go over there if you can, I take something away from every post .
Yesterday I was exhausted and could only manage a quick ab workout. Dieter helped.
Once the husband gets home from work I’ll be doing Jon’s run. I’ll post more on that later. It seems so surreal to me that its his birthday… At least it’s a gorgeous day that I will soak up every second of. Looks like Sunday will be a scorcher.
Do you find it difficult to cross train?
Is the temperature out of control where you are?
Are you racing this weekend?
