|Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee|
40 years strong and 40 million records sold. They were the hierarchy of bands when I was growing up in the late 70's and early 80's, the coolest three Canadians ever, with a huge sound.
My hubby won tickets to see Rush last week. Yes, he was having a kick butt, four leaf clover, week...sky diving and free concert tickets! I was thrilled I got to stand next to Geddy Lee.
The rock formations were awesome.
The gift shop completely fascinated me...

|What's this doing here?|
|Cute salt and pepper shakers|
|and of course giant rocks!|
I spent almost as long looking at the random stuff as I did touring the caverns. Seriously, a pewter owl for $3.99, I am amazed I didn't cave and buy one, that's why I took pictures. :)
Lunges are killing me, I think maybe I need to bag it. I had quite the episode over the weekend with my knee stiffening up, not bending, and shooting pain. Luckily I stood a lot during the concert, but it continued to get worse as the night went on. We had to do a late night Wal-greens stop for an ice pack and ibuprofen. No running Sunday or Monday. I do want try to integrate the Iron Strength work out into my own routine, but I think my knees are going to be a challenge with all the plyometric moves. I kind of plan to try one thing at a time, to see if my knees can tolerate any of it.
Check out the ceilings in our hotel, Kenny almost touched them...
This little hotel death trap didn't have A/C - it was 95 degrees Saturday, but this room was close to 100 degrees - it was unreal. My knee was already feeling sore and I was hoping jogging slowly on the treadmill would help, but it didn't, it got much worse as the night went on.
I did one set of curls and wanted to leave lol I was so hot!
Hubby actually did several sets, we tried to survive and get our work out done in the hotel death trap, but it was a quick session.
I stretched in the pool, I was tempted to hop in with my clothes on.
It was actually very cool outside at the concert that night.
Our seats were under the awning :)
Last week I tried to "tweak " a few things. I hope I can continue my good habits this week. Last week I worked on adding more veggies into meals, drank less diet soda and more water, and I continue to kick butt getting my protein in 15 to 20 minutes after a workout with this...
Maybe not quite the quality of the Vega I love so much, but..the convenience! (no blender cleaning). I live for convenience and the chocolate tastes great. I am trying to make better choices and make small changes. I need to get a few pounds off, but I can not deal with being too regimented. I will never be an all out meal prepper, but I did manage a little more cooking than usual, which meant whole grain pasta for lunches :)
|I have this Old Navy tank in blue (above) and purple -|
got them on sale for $10 and I love them :) Super light and comfy.
|Saw these guys waddling through a cul-de-sac at 5:30 a.m. on my run|
Do you know who Rush is, or did you go, "Who???" Have you ever visited Skyline or Luray Caverns? Ever tried Premier Protein?
Random thoughts on anything :)
