Forty Plus One

Posted Feb 01 2013 4:08pm
Yesterday was my birthday.  I was given two things, a chocolate cake just for me (okay, I shared with the kiddos when they got home from school), and a new appliance, so I can make more cake.





Mike said that he thought if he gave me something for the kitchen that I would divorce him, but I've actually really wanted one of these babies for a long time.  There comes a time in a person's life where gifts such as a new washing machine generates as much excitement as a pair of earrings.

We are getting a ton of snow right now, but had a warm, windy Wednesday (that would be a perfect title for a blog post) so I took Frank for a run. It started to rain about a mile in, but he's been smelling like corn chips again, so I figured the shower would do him some good.  It was a quick three miles, I made sure the wind was at my back to use it to our advantage.

My mileage for January was decent, one of my New Years Resolutions was to not get hung up hitting a certain number of miles, unless I'm training for a race.  My goal right now is to do something six days a week, and mix it up between running outside and doing either speed work on the treadmill, or a slower pace, paired with a very high incline.  My plank a days are more like plank every other day, but I'm up to two minutes which is great.

FYI, 60 seconds on a stop watch is much slower than counting to 60 in your head.


Since I'm no Martha Stewart, I get my holiday decor from places like Target.....or more likely, the Dollar Store.  To spruce things up for Valentine's Day, I bought some glittery hearts for the front door, but I don't know, they kind of look more like mittens to me.




Sunday means the Super Bowl, which means chili in the crock pot, and beer instead of wine. Since neither the Giants or Jets are in it I'm not too excited, but I've been assured it should be a good game.

Happy Running, and Happy Weekend!
