Just a Few Things On My Mind
Last night I had four miles on my schedule, but I ended up only doing two of them. I got home from work late and still had to file my taxes — nothing like slipping in under the deadline!
I’ll have plenty of time to make up the miles on the cruise later this week : ) Only two more work days to go!
On last year’s cruise we got to play with and then snorkel with the stingrays in Cozumel which was really cool — maybe we’ll do that again this year.
So, the other day I was looking through the keywords that drive traffic to my blog and got a little bummed out when I saw #2:
Last year I maxed out at 190lbs for the deadlift and then I put heavy lifting on pause to train for my first half marathon. I had hoped to meet my goal of deadlifting 200lbs by the end of 2013 but after the half in November I never got back into it.
Now, the thought of picking up that much weight just sounds … painful. I know there are lots of women out there who can lift heavy and run marathons at the same time, but I don’t think I’m one of them — either because I can’t or because I don’t want to be in a constant state of soreness.
These days the heaviest lift I do is the squat at 80lbs max (I used to squat 150lbs, sigh).
Oh well, I’ll get back to it at some point. Running is my true love, lifting is just my side piece.
Speaking of running and love, Adam and I finally picked a 5K to do. It takes place on Mother’s Day and the starting line is just a mile from where we live. In addition to the 5K there are shorter “Mommy and Me” races that day, so I’m getting Cecil ready.
Obviously, I am very good with photoshop.
Are you taking advantage of any of the tax day freebies today?
– I haven’t come across any good ones yet, have you?? If so, please let me know! : )
