Mid Week Update

Happy Thursday friends :) As you can see I gave my blog a little make-over. I did this in hopes of getting the creative juices flowing. Instead, I ended up spending almost 2 days changing themes and configuring widgets. That is, in between the times WordPress wants to tell me that my password is invalid and not let me in at all. Ugh. I’m seriously considering going back to Blogger.

<end rant>

I took a little break from training last weekend and only ran 1 mile (7 miles were scheduled). It was a cut-back week so I’m not worried, and we all need a break every now and then, right?!  Lucy certainly had a fun weekend :)

She LOVES the sprinkler! (And the bathtub, and the pool, and the river…)

This week has been going pretty good. No tummy issues!! The only problem I’ve had this week is that my foot pod is not working, yet again. It’s really not a big deal except that I like to be able to see all my stats on Garmin. All I’ve got this week is the treadmill summaries. Here’s how it’s been going:

  • Monday: Easy 5k run
  • Tuesday: 1:2 speed intervals x11 (3.3 miles)
  • Wednesday: 5k run of Level 5 hills

Today is an easy 5k run and tomorrow is my rest day. I have 18 miles scheduled for Saturday, and a 5-mile easy/recovery run on Sunday.

My weight these past couple weeks has been a steady 114 – 115, even after eating like a little piggy at my mother-in-laws last weekend. Granted, it was all veggies/vegan stuff, but I definitely over-indulged!

Gotta run, Laura

  1. I need to work some more on the appearance of my blog. I was very happy my weight stayed the same this week – it wasn’t a bad week, but it wasn’t a great week either. If I eat well next week & my period ends, I hope to have at least a small loss cause I’m not super happy with my weight right now. Every time I get a period, which thankfully isn’t real often anymore, it just plays havoc with my weight.

    Good luck tomorrow!

    • I think your blog looks great! And how did you make your header picture? I’d love to have a collage like that!

      My TOM is very erratic nowadays too. I just had it for the first time in over 3 months. Thankfully, it doesn’t affect my weight.

      • I’ve only had 2 periods this yr – it doesn’t always effect my weight, but usually when I’m eating well & gaining it means one is on its way.

        I did my header in Photoshop.

        I love yours! At some point I have to work on a logo. If I don’t burn out first! Oh, I keep meaning to say a lot of the link ups don’t require you to use their subject, just to be running/fitness related.

      • Me too – 2 this year (so far). I have PSP (Paint Shop Pro) at home (similar to Photoshop) so maybe I’ll play around in there this weekend. If I have time, which I never seem to have enough of…
