Three Things Thursday

So I'm having one of those days when everyone and everything just annoys the crap out of me. Do you ever have those days? Please tell me I'm not alone in my crazy. I'm thinking a trip to Wal-Mart first thing in the morning wasn't the best way to start things off, but it just kept going after that. I'm hoping writing this and then reading some of your blogs will rid me of my annoyance. Now on to my three things:

  1. If you are reading this in your Reader and you have a minute to spare, click on over and check out my blog's new look. I got rid of the black background, which I actually threw on here around Halloween and just never got around to changing. So let me know what you think. I was going for something simpler and easier on the eyes.


  2. Yesterday I did hill intervals on the treadmill. I haven't really done a lot of "hill" runs, but my October marathon has a few so there's no time like the present to start preparing my legs. I did 7 intervals, 2:00 each, 9:40 pace, incline between 4-6%. I don't really know what I am doing, so if you ever do hills on the treadmill, let me know what you do.


  3. My biggest little midge turned four last month, and I got her "4-year pictures" back this week. I know I am her mom and am extremely biased and it is cheesy and whatever, but she is an amazing little person.

RUN: I started watching Spirit of the Marathon. So far, so good!

  1. I always have days like that! Love the new look. Especially the header, RunnerBarbie!

    I don't usually do hills on the treadmill, but you are doing it right ... 2-4 mins in length play around with the incline!

  3. I absolutely love the new look! (And often wondered why you had the black because it seemed to dreary for your perkiness!) Love it!

    There's never a good time to go to Wal-mart that place is the funny farm 24/7!

  7. Love the new look! And, great pictures of your daughter - adorable! WalMart makes me angry too - when I go it is at 0530 so that I don't have to deal with the crazies! Although, Dad Wonder says that I "smell" like grease when I come home from there, so I go that early too so that I can take a shower.

  8. LOOOOOOVEEEEEE the new look!!!

    Runners world online has a great hill workout for the treadmill, to dang hard for me at this point, but a great workout!

    I go to wally on sunday mornings when the church crew are out in church and the not-so-holy ones are sleeping their hangovers off. :)

  10. I don't think there's ever a good time of day to go to Wal-Mart. Last time I set foot in one (it's been years), my anxiety shot through the roof. Too many annoying people that I have such a hard time keeping my mouth shut.

  11. Great new look. I do hills on the treadmill occasionally as well. I don't have any advice because I don't have a clue either.

  12. Great job on the hill intervals. I have never tried them on the treadmill but I think if you google hill treadmill workouts there are some good ones, or try runners world online.

    I like the new look!

  18. Ooo, Candace- where'd you get the header? I wanna learn. I totally like it and I like the white background.
    Manpris- ew.
    Hobble Creek- I'm jealous! Apparently it's the best half in Utah! SGM, hope you get in. Danna's doing both of those races. Maybe we can finally meet, eh?
