I had two rather fabulous runs over the weekend. Saturday I did an even 8 miles and Sunday I did a pretty hilly 7. My right quad didn't give me so much as a niggle. I would call that a pretty big success.
The wild sunflowers on the side of the road are all going gangbusters right now. They are one of my favorite flowers, happy and cheerful.
I took the kids to town yesterday and we finished the school shopping. Well almost, I still need to find some water color paints for my daughter. Apparently they are in high demand this year. We also stopped at the candy store where I say this sign.
One more shot from the candy store. The kids both picked out lollipops but I went for a bag of Jelly Belly Beans. Love those little nuggets of fruity sweetness.
YAY FOR NO PAIN!ReplyDelete
I spent the weekend as a rent-a-mom, watching 3 kids so our roof could get fixed. Man, that's exhausting! How do you do it? :)
Woohoo for two great runs!!!ReplyDelete
I could go for a trip to the candy store right now. Jelly beans sound awesome!
So glad you are continuing pain free! And 6 p.m.? I need that to happen with my kids!ReplyDelete
I'm sooooooo happy you had 2 awesome pain free runs! Cola dog looks so happy in that photo :)ReplyDelete
So glad your quad is feeling better:) Wow 6pm is early! They must have been wiped:) Yay for alone time with the hubs!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad that you were able to run twice with no pain!!! I stopped into a penny candy store to get something else and walked out with some caramels...couldn't resist!!ReplyDelete
I also hate spiders and my house is a MAGNET for them. I just recently have had to start taking care of them myself. And it is horrifying.ReplyDelete
Yay for no pain!!
Yay for niggle-free runs :) !!ReplyDelete
Sweet! Glad the quad is [hopefully] doing better. You know, when I have aches and pains, I keep my running to a minimum. I'm a pansy like that. But I love that you bust out a couple 7+ milers. Love it. And I love the compression socks!ReplyDelete
if i decide to go forward with purchasing another pair of my shoes, i'm definitely going to get lock laces- so annoying how often the come untied. Glad you are back to running!!ReplyDelete
I've been wearing some Skora shoes for running and CrossFit and ditto on the lock laces-- they came undone three times during a 14 min WOD today!ReplyDelete
Love the socks! And I love sunflowers, too. I had small ones in my wedding bouquet. Yay for pain-free running!ReplyDelete
Lovely sunflowers! My husband and I drove through Montana yesterday enroute to visting my family in Rapid City. We stopped at a rest area outside of Billings and I got nearly the same photo. I should've waved to you from I-90! :)ReplyDelete
Congrats on the two fantastic runs! It sounds like your patience has really paid off. Very, very, very happy for you.ReplyDelete
I hate spiders too. Don't even get me started on that subject because we have had quite a problem with hobos in our house recently. We have hobo traps everywhere in our basement and each one has at least 2 spiders. EEEEEEK!
6pm??? Sounds heavenly! It is midnight and my children still haven't gone to sleep. Ugh!!!ReplyDelete
Oh, and I walked into a room one time to discover my 6 month old daughter wearing a huge grin with spider legs peeking out from her lips. I ran from the room screaming-my husband thought... well ... something horrible and liked to have freaked out!
I refused to nurse her for hours after that!
2 days in a row with hills - that's great!ReplyDelete
Love the sunflowers - it must be awesome to run alongside them when they're in bloom!
What a great weekend! I want to go to that candy store!ReplyDelete
I also hate spiders and my house is a MAGNET for them. I just recently have had to start taking care of them myself. And it is horrifying. Antique Design Ear Rings , handmade head piece , handmade jewelry box , Slik Stuff ScarfReplyDelete
