Happy National Donut Day, everyone! I would like to play it off like I totally knew about this and had everything planned, but the truth is we showed up at our usual Friday donut spot and were informed of our festive contribution by the large publicity poster.
So we celebrated, like the good Americans we are.
Meanwhile, on the home front, everything is crazy. I’ve been traveling a lot lately for various reasons, and with my upcoming trip to Australia nothing is going to change anytime soon. My apartment is a mess, and I finally did laundry which means there are now 4 clean loads piled on my bed. The kids have been complaining, “I don’t have any underwear in my drawers!” To which my reply is, “go look in The Pile!” I’m sure I’m the only irresponsible adult that does this and no one can relate. 😉
But I am a creature that prefers to thrive in order rather than chaos, so I did clean out one corner of my bedroom as my “clutter sanctuary” and finally got around to setting up the hanging pot for my sad neglected philodendron. Is it too cliche to name him Phil?
Workouts from the Week
Since I’m now in running training mode, I want to start logging my training from the past week. This will be the boring part of the post, so you can stop here if you’d like.
Saturday 5/26: C25K run, Week 5 Day 1 of the program. Run/walked 2.09 miles in 31″ up around my folks’ neighborhood in Oregon.
Sunday 5/27: Recovery day with a 4 mile hike along the Rogue River to Rainie Falls.
Monday 5/28: Drove home from Oregon, but I did stop at a couple of rest stops to stretch and work on my mobility to break up the drive.
Tuesday 5/29: C25K run, Week 5 Day 2 of the program. Run/walked 2.23 miles in 31″ in my neighborhood. I was crunched for time, otherwise I would have zipped over to Lake Chabot, which is way more scenic than the auto repair garages and medical buildings that dot the landscape of my backyard.
Wednesday 5/30: I had some bodywork done with my chiropractor. Holy cow, they went to town on my glutes.
Thursday 5/31: Example of “You fail to plan, you plan to fail.” Stayed up super late on a work project, so I slept in and the whole day was a rushed blur. Collapsed into pizza, beer, and a movie with the kids for the evening’s activities. Note to self: you’re never too tired for a little living room yoga or a few kettlebell swings!
That’s all for now, go make it a great day!
