I am coming to the party really late!! This week is half way over LOL
I am linking up with my awesome running gal pals Holly and Tricia
Monday - weight lifting and leg lifts at the gym - I came home and planked, it was my last day of my planking challenge - 5 minutes a day for a week, I am so over planking!
Tuesday - five early morning miles (51:49) - I was sweating, sooooooo overdressed and I didn't match at all. Who cares, no one seeeeeeess me?! 😆 Botched picture attempt 👀
Wednesday - 7.19 miles (34:40) to break in my new bike seat. I think it is the answer ❤ I don't know if you remember😢 but a few weeks ago I was chafed raw - I need to test it on a long ride, but this seat felt so much better!
Thursday - Ran 3.60 early morning miles (37:22) crisp, quiet, and I actually stretched after like I should!
Friday - Bagheera (my cat) was on a step in front of me and I didn't see her- I tried to not squash her with all my weight when she screeched and I tumbled down the steps. I reached up and grabbed the rail to stop myself, my shoulder was hurting and I wasn't able to lift all weekend, but everything is else is a - okay now! AT least there wasn't blood LOL
I used all my morning time falling. I ran 1.6 miles (16:36) around the block to loosened up my right side which took the brunt of the fall.
Saturday - took my son out for his 27th birthday and walked off the cheesecake later. 6 walking (1:32:17) miles. My shoulder was still throbbing at this point.
Picked up my bib and shirt for Sunday!
Sunday - Here is my blooper race pic - hubby was trying to make me smile 😄 Real smile pic for the recap which I will post very soon.
Hey, I ran in tank top for the freaking Frostbite 15K LOL I kept my vest on for the race because I was anticipating rain, that never came!
I'll be stepping away from writing blogs for a bit, but I'll keep in touch through my Instagram page!
I always debate if I should make an official announcement...or just fade away into the sunset, but as a blogger I feel attached to my online connections and want to acknowledge that your support, advice, and encouragement are important to me.
I mean if I lived next door and actually liked you I would tell you I was putting my house on the market, right. I would not just pack up and disappear without saying good bye.
I have certain times of the year that are busier than others, the next few months are crunch time and I have a lot of extra work this year! I sit at a computer all day. Sometimes I just have zero desire to try to create a post, or stare at a screen in the evening, even if it is to read something I enjoy!
I wrestle with posting when I don't have time to read and respond to comments.
Sometimes I feel like I am juggling too much social media. I started a Running Over the Hill Facebook page and was going to try to build it, but I realized it isn't what I want, for now anyway. I really want to consolidate my energies into one place. Shoot, I barely check my personal FB page, it is mostly in existence so my disabled Mom can play her Farm games as me and herself, then send gifts to herself from me.
I am sure I can't leave the blogisphere forever, but for now I will dial my efforts in on Instagram. There are many positives there, mainly I can keep my account private and still keep in touch with my friends.
My Instagram Karenrunsva is 99% fitness, but I will post about my cats and other fun adventures from time to time. If you want to connect on Instagram send me a message!
My race recap will be up shortly!
All my best,
Do you have a bunch of botched photo attempts on your phone?
Is planking really good for you?!! LOL
