Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Cake Makes Me Smile

I know it's not the end of the month, but it is the start of a new week. And hopefully this week will bring some running. In the meantime, here's a recap of last week's work outs and an update on some of the things this runnerd is up to lately:

Elliptical workouts planned/completed: 2/2

Bike workouts planned/completed: 2/4

Runs planned/taken: 1/0 (I took two steps, if that counts; unfortunately they were two painful steps.)

Strength training workouts planned/completed: 6/5

Ab workouts planned/completed: 3/2

Current Reads: Just finished The Long Run yesterday (review to come). Decided it was time for a mindless beach read since I plan to spend a lot of time reading as a treat to myself tonight (aka my birthday), so I am reading One Fifth Avenue (which I purchased for $2.40 when Borders was going out of business).

Current Shame Inducing Pleasure: Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake from Baskin Robbins
Current Obsession: Christmas music, including this:

Current Song: Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5 feat. Christina Aguilera

Current Need: To run. I guess that includes a healthy, happy hip.

Current Excitement: A new freelance job opportunity


  1. Current [fav] blogger I must see again soon: yep. You.

  2. I feel you, I am out of the running game as well and it is my current need!

  3. Matty Long is a good writer. A stronger person.

    Two steps? Ew.

    Subtle birthday announcement, I like that.

    Maybe next year the world will cooperate and you can knock out 18.5 on Millie.
    In the meantime, 18.5 painless steps would be nice. Have a great reading-filled b-day!

  4. ummm. i think you are amazing and i hope you had the BEST bday! i love that book. sooooooo good. and just so you were #1 on my DM leaderboard so obviously you were rocking the workouts last week! but I would like for that hip of yours to cooperate as well so that some running can come into your life again :)

  5. Happy Birthday and I have to agree that mint chocolate chip ice cream cake is wonderful!

  6. Mint chocolate chip--my fave! Here's to a happy hip soon!

  7. Yay for freelance jobs!

    I'm not going to lie, Moves Like Jagger drives me insane. It's catchy, but it never gets out of my head! Oh no, I'm hearing it now.

  8. Happy Birthday! Enjoy your cake and book! :-)

  9. Happy Birthday! I just finished that book! Love it!

  10. Happy Birthday

    I love the Glee christmas albumn. I also love that maroon 5 song.

  11. I hope you had a happy birthday! And I hope that your hip gets feeling totally better so that you can get your run on! Way to go on all the other workouts though. Amazing!
