I am loving the Mizuno Sayonaras. Those shoes are so light. I think they were made with my foot in mind. Fit like a glove, and they match my flowers. Today is the day they are available in stores too!
Speaking of running, which is always a favorite. 15 miles this week. In 3 different 5 mile runs. 5 mile runs. I have done 4 of them now and my quad is feeling so good. I can tell it is nearly healed because
- I can cross my legs with my left on top with only the slightest twinge of pressure in my right quad.
- I can sleep on my side again, both sides! Yay I have been having to sleep on my back and I do not sleep good on my back.
- I don't find myself rubbing my quad muscles throughout the day anymore.
- I did some burpees and actually followed through with the jump part and it felt good.
We could have gone to several shows in the area but I really hate crowds. Fireworks are awesome but aren't a 4th of July necessity to me. Growing up on a ranch where wildfires are a threat we rarely lit off fireworks on the 4th, preferring instead to do it on New Years when the fire danger is less.
Speaking of crowds... when the rodeo got over Wednesday night we hurried out of the stands to our car with the kids to try to get out of the parking lot before it got congested and were moving along at a nice jog when we had to stop to try and remember where we had parked.
A couple was standing there and heard us comment to each about where we had parked, they said to us "Hopefully you aren't parked like us" They had been blocked in with a car in front of and behind them. That was when I saw we were in front on them! Whew, were they happy to see us. We all hopped in our vehicles and got out of there right before the rush. For the record we were not the ones that blocked them. We were the first ones to park in that row and people were filled in behind us.
Final Friday Favorite. Hay. Everywhere around me are hay fields being cut and baled. It makes the air smell so sweet in the mornings.
