That’s not a great sign, is it? Apparently I ran over whatever the heck that thing is on my way home from work yesterday. Luckily I noticed it before heading to church last night. I was pulling out of my drive way, but felt like my front tire might be flat, so I got out and looked, but it was fine. I went ahead and looked at all of them and sure enough my back tire was flat.
I went ahead and made an appointment last night so I could get my car in quickly this morning. Thankfully my boss has been out of town these past few days and so I’m not extremely busy at work or I’d be a wreck right now. I was caught up on everything when I left work yesterday.
What’s really funny is I’m picking my friend Lacy up from the airport today and she said her plane was delayed due to a flat tire also! We’re all having tire trouble apparently.
It’s a dreary day here in Mississippi. In a weird way, I love days like this. I would love a day like this more if I could curl up on the couch reading blog posts and updating my own blog. What’s your weather looking like?
I’ll be visiting my cousin in a week & a half. The excitement is overwhelming. My friend Lacy is joining me and then we’ll be greeted by our friend Noelle who just accepted a job in Texas! I plan on parking myself by the pool pretty much all weekend. In order to do that though, I need to ramp up my workouts. I did the 30 day squat challenge a few months ago and saw a lot of improvement with that so I’m going to start that again today. I also need to take all the ab classes offered at my gym between now and then!
Some other necessities to get pool ready in a jiffy:
- Drink lots of water!
- Cut back on my Sodium intake!
- Apply Jergens Firming Lotion
Besides spending the greatest quality time in the world with my sweet Cousin and her beyond wonderful family, I’ll also be attending the Houston Veg Fest! I probably won’t attend the entire day, but I’ll be there for a few hours learning about vegans/vegetarians, listening to speakers, and trying products! You’ll for sure see a re-cap on the blog!
Did I mention that Nick and I want to do the Goofy Challenge? It’s at Walt Disney World and it’s a Half-Marathon on Saturday, Full-Marathon on Sunday. The problem is, I’ve never done a marathon. I’ve done a hand-full of Half’s though. We haven’t signed up yet because it’s not full and I’d like to see how I feel in a few months. To kick off our training, we’re doing a Half in Starkville on October 18th. When I trained for the Disney Wine & Dine Half-Marathon, I planned on using this great training plan I found that was created by (or for) Ellie Goulding. The training didn’t go so great, the longest I ended up running was about 8 miles and I didn’t have a gym membership so rainy days were a problem and I also didn’t have a good yoga class to go to or a decent DVD / floor space for my yoga. I still believe the training plan is one of the best I’ve seen because of the heavy amount of x-training and strength training involved as well as yoga. I’m giving it a try again for this training and I feel it’s going to flow more smoothly now that I have a gym membership with yoga classes offered and a rainy day option on longer runs that are critical to my training!
- What do you do to get pool ready in a jiffy?
- Have you attended or even heard of a Veg Fest? How was it? What can I expect?
- Share your favorite half-marathon training plan!
- What’s the likelihood that I’ll succeed at doing a half & full in about 6 months when I’ve never done a full?
