Mixing it up

My running has gotten stale. I really haven't regained my mojo from the Winter months. I get out there, but I'm just not into it. So I'm thinking, maybe I'm just overloading on one form of exercise and it's time to mix it up a bit. Here's what I'm thinking:

Sat: run
Sunday: trail run/hike
Monday: swimming & volleyball
Tuesday: Weights
Wednesday: Run & volleyball
Thursday: swimming & volleyball
Fri: rest

Maybe this will freshen up my routine a bit.

I'm still undecided about the SF 1/2 marathon at the end of July. I know I could fake my way through it...I'm just so undecided. I think next time I'm not even going to bother writing about a race until I'm actually signed up.

Last Day in my 30's

Yes, folks..I turn 40 tomorrow. More of my thoughts on that later. Guess who I share a birthday with?

Donald Trump (ugg)
Steffi Graf (kinda cool)
Boy George (I can take that to so many different levels, but I did love Culture Club in high school!
The Yarn Harlot (yes...for you non knitters out there, there is such a person and there is no knitter that doesn't know her name).

My friend and I claimed a little fame...Tiny Tyrant gets the shout out..but I'm still in the pic!
(I'm on the left btw).

Interesting group, huh?

Weird Sabbatical is OVER!

Can't even give you folks a good reason why I was away for so long, but I'll try:

  1. The sun was shining
  2. I was knitting
  3. Work was insane
  4. My daughter was needy
  5. We have a new addition:
This is Marly (ie...Marlz, Marzipan, Marmaduke, MarMar) Persephone--and she's a very sweet kitten.

What the heck, when a 17 year old young woman comes to you and tells me that she has had a lot of loss in her life recently and that she needs something to love for her very own, and this young woman has a steady boyfriend for a 1 1/2 years, how can a mother ever possibly say no to a kitten! I did personally feel I wasn't ready for another cat--but she was ready.

I'm actually spilling over with things I want to write about, things I want to tell you. I'm also thinking about changing my blog a bit, to include my other creeping obsession; Knitting.

So, what will I be, a runner that knits, and knitter that runs? How the heck do these 2 things relate?

And yes, I have knitted my first pair of socks. And no, they are no yet the best for running. But I am determined to perfect that skill!

More to follow!

Now time to see what you all have been up to!
