Changing it Up

Right now I'm in this weird running place.  I don't have any official races to train for, and while I know I should be keeping somewhat in shape so that when I do start a plan I won't die, but I've been enjoying switching up my workouts a little.  I think right now I've been focusing on running because I want to and because I actually like it, not because I feel tied to a plan.

On Sunday I did a walk/run workout on the treadmill from Julie at Peanut Butter Fingers.  I was surprisingly sore after the thirty minute workout so settled on the elliptical for Monday.  I'm not sure if I just wasn't used to it, or if had something to do with the fact that the machine was older and not as smooth of a ride as I would have preferred, but my hips kind of hurt the next day.  I probably should stretch more.

Monday night I was a happy girl because my dad came to visit!  I invited him to visit while the Pirates were in town to play the Nationals and I had a great time with him.  I always laugh a lot when I'm with my dad and it was nice to have him join Maddux and me on some adventures in the park.  We went to two local parks while he was here and walked the pup for a little over an hour both times.  Maddux loved getting to explore the trails and I was a big fan of the slightly cooler temperatures we had.  We were both happy to see the Pirates win Tuesday night!  (Sorry, Nats!  I promise to cheer you on when you're not playing the Bucs.)

Not from this visit.  Not even the same place or with all the same people.  We do love the Pirates though.

Today I'm keeping on with the cross training and heading back to Body Pump!  Happy Thursday!


  1. I'm glad that you got to raise the Jolly Roger! I hope we have good temperatures for adventuring with my nephew when I visit!

    1. Me too! It was a great game! I can't wait for you to get here! I'll keep my fingers crossed for pretty weather :-)
