Saturday Seven

No, not seven miles, seven random things:

1) As of the morning of July 10th, I have logged 32 miles of fitness walking which includes 12 trips up the hill. It's growing on me, but I miss running.

2) I'm getting really bored with that hill. Need to find a new one to climb.

3) I *so* love Marshall's. I recently picked up 2 pairs ($9 each) of Layer 8 shorts that are designed just like Nike Pacer shorts except that they are missing the rear pocket for an Ipod. One is grey with yellow trim, the other is black with pink trim. Score!

4) I also found really soft microfiber twin xl sheets in brown and khaki for Son to take to college. I'm sure that's not as exciting to most of you as the shorts, but it's something he needs for the dorm room and the price was perfect. Score again!

5) I also love Headsweats hats. The only time that I don't wear them when walking or running (or gardening) is when it's too cold. I picked up two new ones recently: lime green and white with pink trim.

6) Last night we went to the Zoo for a summer concert. It was a perfect night to sit out and listen to music. We had never heard of the artist, Carrie Rodriguez, but were pleasantly surprised to find out that we really enjoyed her music. I think I might pick up her latest CD.

7) Five days until my first Euflexxa injection. Not that I'm counting or anything...

  3. Good job on sticking with the walking. When you start running back, you should look into Galloway's run/walk/run program. It helps prevent injuries.

  5. That's a lot of walking!

    I have yet to try a hat I love. May have to scope out Head Sweats.

  6. Walking can do a lot for you but yes, it's *not* running. There is a lady in our area that power walks marathons and ultra-marathons. I've seen her a many runs and she's actually in Women's Fitness magazine this month.

  9. Hi Lisa,
    Woo hoo for your walking miles! I know that you are missing running but you have a great attitude and desire to stay active! I love that about you!

    I am also a huge fan of the Nike Tempo shorts. We have an outlet mall not too far from here and I can find deals there on shorts! I love it when I can score a good buy:) Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  15. I love random things posts. I don't know why, but I do.

    Here's to a new hill to climb, the last shot, and Lisa's return to injury free running! :)

  16. injuries and no running sucks but at least you are moving..that is a lot more than others would do.
    Hope all goes well with the injection....

  17. I forgot how much I love Marshall's until I picked up 2 speedo swimsuits (each under $17!!!) from there.

    It's dangerous territory in there though - I can drop major $$$ in a heartbeat if I'm not careful.
