Amara is 7! We spent some time at The Grand Rapids Children’s Museum and out to dinner. Fun stuff. She ordered the calamari 😉 I knew she would!
The waitress said the dessert was BIG, but I had no idea. I should have eaten at Uccello’s on my birthday! 😉 It had fresh strawberries, and real biscuit short cakes. Oh, and ice cream and whipped cream too.
Thursday~ I was not sure I would do anything today. But, I did. I went to the gym. Talked a while (haha) and then hit the treadmill. My
BFF frenemy. Actually, today it was OK. Probably because I have not been on it in a while. I did a 1 mile elliptical warm up first. I loosely did what my running group did tonight.
I was to perform 8×400 at 5k pace. I kept it simple and just progressed with each 400 meters on the tread. There was a 400 walk/jog between “sprints”. Here is how is looked:
Almost progressive. Mostly. Ha. I told myself I would do at least 4 of them…and then I felt OK after 6. So, I just figured I would do all 8! Very glad I did that. I don’t usually run on Thursday’s so an extra 2 miles this week is always a good thing. I called the allergists again trying to get an appointment ( with anybody now..I want someone to see me and CURE me). I have to call back on Tuesday. Great. I will though. After running I contemplated lifting, but ran into Andi and chatted for a bit too long. I had errands to run, so I decided to lift Friday after Spin.
I made an egg in a cup ( I used a ceramic mug and it worked just fine) before I left for the gym and packed it up with an almond pancake. This was much easier than eating eggs with a fork while driving. It looks kind of nasty, but it wasn’t – I swear.
On tap for Friday: Spin, possibly foam roll for the first time since Saturday and lift something.
