Day 10 of Epic Road Trip

Day 10 began with an early sweat session at the gym at 7am with a hilly slow run warmup (that I had to bail on halfway because it was too much for my recovering body) and it had Paul gasping for air. We … Continue reading

Steamy Mug of Fluid Time and the 2nd Half of Labor Day Weekend

We all have our rituals… Some need coffee before spoken to. Some need a shower and a sweat. Some need to take off their shoes immediately after work to relieve stress. So on and so forth. I personally need coffee … Continue reading

Life… wonderful, colorful, funfilled, painful, tasty

Yesterday began after 9.5 hours of beautiful uninterrupted sleep brought to me by NyQuil. I don’t have a cold, but I don’t sleep well and I knew that after that 24 mile run, I could use some real rest. So … Continue reading

Pooch has a Brand New Toy!

Woke up. Drank coffee. Didn’t feel well so I watched a movie. I still didn’t feel well but I ran with the pooch for 4 mi (no excuses!!). Then did the runner yoga sequence and fell asleep at the end during the relaxation point. Oops. Cleaned up around the house some.

IMG_0922[1]I ran some errands… tracked down some coconut flour for a Paleo Pumpkin Bars recipe I’m looking forward to trying tomorrow. While I was at The Fresh Market I found myself wishing I would win the lottery… I stopped by Pet Smart to find a toy for Roxanne, my dog that tears through “tough” toys in less than a day. I settled upon a large rope. I also used the $30 gift cards to the local running store (that I won in my 10k) on a box of vanilla bean GU.

Came home to play with the pooch with intentions of going to my box because we IMG_0942[1]are doing the girl benchmark WODs this week for beast cancer awareness… but I needed to do food prep for the week… so I did that. I made a pizza casserole (with zucchini and yellow squash as “noodles”, the pumpkin bars, hard boiled some eggs, and prepped some chicken for easy meals.  I’m beat so I think I’m gonna hit the hay.  But not before I share pictures of the pooch and her new toy!

Surely this will take her a while to destroy 🙂IMG_0927[1]
