Six Thoughts Sunday

1) Husband was blushing from the comments to my facebook post about our ten thousand waves excursion. I don’t think he reads my blog regularly or he’d be blushing from these comments as well. He told me that he first thought of this 2 years ago, but didn't know if I'd enjoy it. Finally scheduled a day off coinciding with Son's flight back to CA, and decided to put the plan in motion and surprise me.

2) After not running all week (yikes!), I got out for a 5 mile solo run today. I miss my running partners, but have been cheering them on as they Rock-n-Roll to the marathon finish line in AZ. At the time of this writing, they are almost there…

3) I have completed 17 yoga sessions in the first 15 days of the month. Each session ranges from 35-55 minutes in duration. Using 45 minutes as an average, I’ve completed 12 hours 15 mins of yoga in 15 days. I don’t know about you, but that seems like a LOT of yoga to me.

4) My Garmin seems to be completely dead. I’ve resigned myself to buying a new one. Just need to decide whether to replace it with another 205 or spend more money on one of the newer models. I’m leaning toward sticking with the tried and true 205.

5) Daughter was starting to feel better after three days sick with Strep and got her hair cut on Friday. She had about 4 inches cut off. It looks super cute on her. She also bought a dress for Winter Ball. I'm heading out soon to meet her at the fabric store to see if we can come up with a way to modify/personalize it. Should be fun!

6) Today I was thinking about something. Sometimes the idea of a long run (9 or 10 or 12 or 13.1 miles) or running up a hill seems daunting, but the idea of taking just one more step often seems achievable. And really, that's all it takes. Just one more step, then another, and another, until you reach the end.

MED Accountability:

  1. That's a lot of yoga!! :)

    So true about taking just one step at a time.

    Did you call Garmin to see if they can fix it? I have the 305 and I like it. :)

  2. I haven't even managed one yoga class yet this year...

    I have to play mind games for long runs. I only "have" to run 4 miles. Then I take it one tenth at a time.

  3. That is a lot of yoga. I love my 310xt Garmin.
    Thanks for the motivating thought, I have a similar mantra of every step is closer to being done, so keep those feet moving!

  4. So sorry about your Garmin! :0( Glad your daughter is feeling better! The haircut sounds cute! :0)

  5. I am taking the week off of running, on purpose - in hopes of healing my shin. Oy. With that, I hope to get to yoga tomorrow with my day off! Nice job on the run!

  6. Poor Garmin r.i.p. now you need a new one!
    That is a lot of yoga even if I don't have idea how it can be because I never did it.
    One step at a time is a good plan.

  7. is the blog going to change to ... chasing gurus?

  8. Good yoga work. Go you!
    What a great way to get you through the tough miles: just one more step,...
    I love finding sentences, quotes, etc. that I can use for motivation.

  9. That's a lot of yoga! You are right, just one more step.
    About banned fruits in my house...mainly soft fruits. Mango, Guava, Banana, Peach, Apricot in the order of most banned to somewhat banned:).

  10. you've turned into quite the yogi :-)
