Are you guys experiencing this snow beast? This was our view on the way to the gym this morning. It came down hard last night. I hate driving in it! My little Scion IQ is a ninja, though; she be but tiny but fierce. On the bright side, we had a great workout this morning!
Wearing: These slippers from Target. Very cozy for the nice 12 degree weather we are having.
Reading: The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien; we went to see movie #2 and it gave me the craving to read it. I haven’t read it since high school. So far, the movies have been a lot more accurate than I expected (besides Legolas prancing around).
Eating: Not much. We ate all the things in the house. We are going grocery shopping tomorrow, because we are all out of delicious foods. Tonight for a snack, I made my own frosted flakes; we had some corn flakes leftover from a recipe, and I sprinkled sugar on top. Reminds me of when I used to go to my grama’s house when I was a kid, and she never had Lucky Charms or anything; it was always plain Rice Krispies you had to sprinkle your own sugar on top of. I’m not complaining; they’re still yummy.
Watching: We watched Blackfish on Netflix; it’s an awesome documentary. If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend it. We went to Seaworld for the first time last year, and this gives me a totally different perspective on it. Although Greg didn’t seem to agree with a lot of it, but he’s just the argumentative type.
Working On: Running – I ran a couple (few? can’t remember) days this week, and my calves are killing me! They only hurt when I do sprints, but I know a varied run is better for you than a same-pace run, so I try to involve some change towards the end.
Loving: This crazy, so-ugly-it’s-cute running shoe. My Nike Free’s lasted me for a while, but I had to give them up after I started getting pain in the balls of my feet. I switched to a shoe with more cushion, and now I don’t have that problem. I also heard that alternating between two running shoes could be good for your feet.
