It’s been a while since I made a worthwhile post on here!
The last post was on…April 2nd?
(that’s my guilty face)
But a lot has happened since then!
I started running again last week and I’ve had NO problems with the ankle. WOO HOO! However, the jumping jacks my trainer makes me do still give me trouble. But since I don’t do jumping jacks while I run, I’ll be fine!
Also, Tim started running with me! He’s been talking about starting for a long time, and I made him put his money where his mouth was and we finally started using the awesome trail that runs through our backyard.
He did great! We logged 7.5 miles of run/walking (2 min run/1 min walk) last week, which I thought was a fantastic start considering he hadn’t run much before. We haven’t been able to get out at all this week due to both being sick and the cold/rainy weather, but we’re on a good start.
I’ve always been a solo runner who listened to my iPod, but I am having such a blast running with Tim! It makes the minutes and the miles just fly by, and we’re both getting healthier as a result! Win-win!
I also signed up for a new gym – one that has a great (and not busy) lap pool! Not that I’ve gone yet, but the option is there! Can’t wait to scare the locals with my fat butt in a race suit!
I also picked up a fun new scarf!
Ok, so I still look a bit guilty. Well…because the new scarf led me to buy three pairs of shoes. To be fair, one of the pairs of shoes are new SPD-compatible cycle shoes for the triathlon, so I was kinda being practical!
Got a busy weekend ahead of me of working the PT job (that allows me to buy three pairs of shoes and not go broke – thank you employee discount!), hopefully getting some gardening prep done, meeting a framer to get some of my cherished concert posters framed for the new house, and going to a family dinner on Sunday. Oh, and we’re having friends over tonight!
Despite the craziness, things are pretty damn good.
Have an awesome weekend!
