Thursday Thoughts: May 14

In looking through my pictures for the last week, I don’t really have much to share with you this week!

I binge watched The Fall on Netflix last weekend and into this week; I loved it! It is a psychological crime thriller show, set in Ireland.  I definitely recommend it for a weekend binge.  I read there will be a 3rd season coming sometime.  It can’t come soon enough!the-fall-484x253Jasper had some fun (or I had some fun watching Jasper) playing “Cat Fishing” on my iPad. (This is the first time I’m uploading a video, so I hope it works!)

Jasper’s cat grass has also been growing so much! He has been licking and nibbling on it every day.  He begs to go outside as soon as I get home from work, to watch the squirrels and birds, and eat his cat grass.Photo May 09, 9 46 34 AM Running has been tough lately, mainly due to the pain in my butt and hamstring.  I have had 2 treatments of ART, Graston, and chiropractic adjustments with Schabel Performance Health and I can tell they are helping, but I just wish the treatments would help faster!  I have another treatment this evening.  I feel like even the easiest of runs are a struggle lately.  I know I’m on the right track to recovering.

This weekend, I will run the Scout Strong Half Marathon, with Amy.  I just hope I can finish!  I also hope it stays dry… the forecast is calling for rain!Photo May 13, 8 42 03 PM

Thursday Thoughts: April 23

This past week has been a busy one! Last Saturday, I drove to Atchison for a Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra class. It was an experience like I’ve never had before; I enjoyed it quite a bit. You can read more about my experience here After Yoga in Atchison, I went to Skin Illustrations Tattoo and added to the tattoo on my foot. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, and on the drive back from Atchison I decided to see if the tattoo shop had an availability. 

I was able to get in right away, and the artist hand drew and tattooed a lotus flower on my foot to go with the Om that I got with Mom years ago. I’m really happy with how it turned out!   I’m super excited to run with the Groupies tonight. After the Rock the Parkway Half Marathon, I really came down with a bad cold and bronchitis. This week, I had an appointment with an Allergist and I will begin allergy shots next week. Because of my bronchitis and cold and allergies, I have only gone running 3 times since Rock the Parkway! I wish I could say I’ve enjoyed my little break from running, but I am aching to get back out there!    I will run the Trolley Run 4 Miler this weekend with Mom; I can’t wait to spend the weekend with her. I will use the Trolley Run to kick off my half marathon training for the Scout Strong Challenge Half Marathon and Hospital Hill Half Marathon. I’m determined to get my endurance built up!

With only a week left in my April Fitness Challenge, I’ll share my progress so far! Before any push-ups, squats, and sit ups today, I am currently at 700 of 1000 push ups, 1350 of 2000 squats, and 2300 of 3000 sit ups. How’s your Challenge coming along?
