Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
On Saturday afternoon we went to my stepbrother, Jake’s, graduation party.
My dad and stepmom made him a scrapbook of his life from when he was born until now. My dad also made my brother and me a scrapbook when we graduated high school.
We had fun visiting, eating, and swimming.
I think Jaden stayed in the pool for four straight hours. That kids loves to swim. He didn’t even mater how cold he got or how much his teeth were chattering, he did not want to get out of that pool.
We stayed to watch the Chicago Blackhawks game. Thank goodness they won
On Sunday, we just kind of relaxed and hung out all day. I was expecting my legs to be sore from my 8 mile run on Saturday morning, but they felt¬†totally fine.
We worked on the little garden in our front yard a little bit.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a green thumb. My mom does so it must have skipped my generation. I pretty much kill every plant that I touch, with the¬†exception of those two big green plants. We planted those few years ago, and they come back and grow big every year without me doing anything. Those are the kind of plants that I like.
In hindsight, I should have bought bigger plants than those little purple flowers, but for some reason I was imaging the space smaller in my head. We’ll see how long they live with me around.
- BodyPump – 60 minutes
I went to BodyPump this morning, then came home and made a fruit smoothie.
My smoothies have been so simple lately – frozen strawberries and peaches, peach Greek yogurt, and some Trop50 orange juice. Easy and delicious.
The Biggest Loser 15k in coming up on Saturday. I am excited but nervous. My training plan has a few short runs this week – 2 miles and 3 miles. Then the big 9.3 miles on Saturday. I plan just to go slow and steady. I don’t have a time goal in mind.
I am debating whether or not I should bring my hand held water bottle with me. I run better without holding it, but it’s supposed to be hot on Saturday, so I figure I might need it.
Have a great afternoon!
- Do you have a green thumb? Do you like to garden?
- Do you bring a water bottle with you for long races or just use the water stations?
- Do you like to swim?
