Happy Sunday evening to all! Well, another week draws to a close, and at almost the same time as the month ends. February always sort of seems like the longest month in spite of the fact that it’s the shortest, so I’m not particularly sad to see it go. That being said, this last week was not a bad one (especially in comparison to last week’s disappointments). I decided to adjust my schedule a little bit, as I had previously been setting Mondays as a run day and Tuesdays as a yoga day and then consistently having Mondays end up as a rest day because I’d miss my morning wake-up call (by which I mean my alarm clock) and get home too late to go out for a run. Even though I ended up missing Tuesday as a run day, I still managed to get in four solid days and meet my mileage goal. Yippee!
- Monday: Hot power fusion yoga
- Tuesday: sick (lingering cold and upset stomach)
- Wednesday: 5.5 miles with my LUNAChix team
- Thursday: rest
- Friday: 4.3 miles on the treadmill (speed work!)
- Saturday: 7.5 miles (long run)
- Sunday: 4.2 miles
Total miles: 21.5 (my goal was 21). I wish I had made time for more yoga and core work (WHY am I so bad at fitting in my core work?), and doing so will definitely be a goal for this week. Which brings us to my Monday mini-goal! This week, I want to focus on getting in 2 yoga practices and 2 core work sessions. If I can manage that and turn the core work into a hobby, I’ll be really pleased.
And now for something completely different…This has been making its was around the blogosphere and I wanted to join in on the fun. So here we go: my life through the alphabet!

Quote from a Movie: “You guys have it real easy. I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn’t matter. You were born rich and you’re going to stay rich. But here’s my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can’t buy backbone. Don’t let them forget it. Thank you.”– Herman Blume’s speech in Rushmore, the Greatest Movie of All Time.
