It is hard to talk about running when you aren’t running, so I apologize for the lack of posts about running. I miss running like crazy. I miss the high mileage and the runner’s high at the end of a run. I even miss the early morning wake-up calls and people saying I’m crazy for running 100 miles in a week. I miss it all and hope I my glute will heal soon, so I can get back to it!!
I’ve decided I had better take another full week off from running and just lay low. I even plan to cut back on weight lifting and exercise in general. I took a full week off from running last week but continued to lift weights. My hip did not get any better, so this time around I thought I would try doing less exercise in general. I don’t know if it will help, but I’ve got to try something!?! :/
Since I don’t have my daily runs to talk about, let’s highlight things from this week.
Laughs of the Week
Any other (proud) band nerds out there that find this hilarious! I know I do because I was one of those French horn players who had to play the off beats the ENTIRE length of the song!
Have the Groupon and Living Social deals gotten really bad in your area? I have not purchased many Groupon deals lately. Except I did purchase one this morning and had to crack up when I got to the payment screen. I guess Groupon forgot how to do their math!! Sadly, they realized their mistake and did charge me $60. Bummer.
Saddest Moment of the Week
It is officially winter here, and I’m pretty sure this stuff isn’t going away anytime soon. Say, for oh. . . . .6 months of so. No big deal. (Yeah right!)
New Find of the Week
Craig and I didn’t do anything special for Halloween. We actually pretended we weren’t home when kids knocked at our door because I didn’t have any candy to give them. I only got a handful of candy from work, including these Mamba candy. I’ve seen this candy in the store (maybe once or twice), but am I the only one who has never tried these before? They reminded me of Starburst, and I was a fan!
Workout of the Week
I attempted running again on Thursday because I was going crazy without running. I knew my glute would probably still be bothering me, but I had to go for a run.
Mile 0 – 1: no pain
Mile 1 – 2: only pain 3 or 4 times
Mile 2 – 3: quite a bit of pain
Bummer. This is not good, but I SO wanted to keep running in the worst way!
It is Craig’s birthday on Saturday, but we have been celebrating all week. Each night I’ve given him a gift. They have just been small things with the grande finale being given the day of his birthday.
One day I gave him this Aveda tea. Both Craig and I love Aveda products: their hair products, skin products, and now this tea. It is very delicious with a sweet taste, but there is no added sugar.
I also picked up this bar of soap at a fair-trade store in Anchorage: Grassroots.
Plus the Global Mamas U.S. office is in Minnesota!
Tell me something about your week!!
