Since the last time I ran was last Thursday, I made it a priority to run at lunchtime on the treadmill as it was yet once again, raining.  Whenever I don’t run for a few days, the beginning of a run is not fun for me.  But I was able to do 3.26 miles in 39:39 minutes, including my warm up/cool down walks.  I ran it at a 3% incline (sometimes lowering it to 2.5).  But it felt good.

Still feeling a little blah but watched Glee – can’t believe Rachel did that!  Or Coach Beestie!  I did however fall asleep at the end of the eliminations on Dancing with the Stars…didn’t miss much – huh?

Went down to the gym at lunchtime – and did some cross-training.  Most exciting thing of the day?  The Dr. Oz giveaway.  Since I just got the Keurig Vue – I wanted the Soda maker.  I was able to get on – but I was using Internet Explorer and I couldn’t see the form L  After some research on the internet, I noticed that people were suggesting using Google Chrome – don’t have, but I do have Mozilla Firefox – so I used that and I was able to submit a form for the pillow.  Then I tried for the Sony Walkman – got the form, filled it out and then got the message that they were all gone.  I really dislike that they allowed people to win one in each category, but their party, their rules.  Did I win the pillow?  Maybe – will keep an eye on my mailbox at home and emails.  Some fun giveaways going on in the running community – my wish list of things to win:  Garmin watch, some compression socks, How to Train Like a Mother book, a Sparkle Skirt, bib holder and last, but not least, an entry to a Disney race.   In the meantime, am reading some very fun and interesting blogs and learning more about running each day.


Blue and Barefoot

I used my blue and black 1” Sweaty Band today at work yesterday. I found it a little tight, but it stayed put once the little piece of elastic found the perfect spot to stop at in the back of my head. I noticed that it did not stay flat on my head – it seemed to sit on an angle.  After work I pulled my hair into a low ponytail and braided my hair – went for a run (2.21 miles – 29.19 mins) and it stayed in place and held all my little hairs in place.  Took pictures – but having technical issues with my phone.

I saw the new Barbie Katniss doll that is available for preorder and she is absolutely adorable! The eyes are very nicely done – and it does resemble Jennifer Lawrence a bit. It definitely is one of the nicer Barbie character dolls that has been released recently.
Listened to my favorite podcast yesterday, DIS Unplugged, missed a couple of episodes since I don’t have any plans to get up to Orlando anytime soon. I keep debating on signing up for the Tower of Terror run, unless I get a raise or a new job, just can’t put it in my budget. But back to the DIS – love them and have been a listener for years. They are a quirky bunch, and the conversation can go a little to the adult side, but I like their honest opinions. They just reviewed the new Fantasy and it sounds FABULOUS!!! I may have to play the lottery to see if I can go on a Disney cruise.
A few weeks ago I entered in the Toms Shoe Essie nailpolish giveaway and received a bottle of barefoot blue to participate in Barefoot for a Day on Tuesday, April 10, 2012. I did kickoff my shoes a number of times in the office and as soon as I walked in the house – shoes came off – it might have even been a good day to start running barefoot, but I see way too much broken glass on the sidewalk that I could see ending my day with a trip to the ER, so for my run, I had to wear my sneakers.


All Good Things Come to an End

Quick review of my three day weekend…..
Friday – went for a quick run – 2.5 miles in 31 minutes – then headed to the Hollywood Beach. We were watching the dark clouds roll in from the west. Got lucky and were able to enjoy almost 2 hours of sun before those clouds got to the beach.

Stopped at Tijuana Flats for lunch and the rain really came down – along with unbelievable winds! I thought hurricane season had hit early!

Saturday – got up early, James made us a nice breakfast and off we went to the City’s Easter Egg Hunt. It never stops to amaze me how people drive here…running red lights with a car filled with children. Near the park – cars just cutting in front of others – no regard to the pedestrians. Really sad. Sadder was that we missed it. They never start the hunt on time – well this year they did and we were just at the gate when they started. So we came home and Ava (my little one) got her Easter present a day early – an electric  Razor scooter.

From there we went to Home Depot Kids Workshop where we made a bird feeder.

Then off to ballet and I spent the rest of the day cleaning her room.

Sunday – Went for a run 2.56 miles 33 minutes. Came home to find the door locked. Knocked and knocked, and knocked. So I finally just sat down and listened to Subsonic Radio – Love my Disney music 🙂 James finally came home and I was able to get my day started. Desi had to work…so we ran to Walmart picked up a small dinner – James is cooking, I am cleaning and will give myself a pedi now. Hope everyone is having a Happy Easter.
