Candy Crush is evil

I have been meaning to post the past few days but keep getting sidetracked by Candy Crush. That's one of the problems with blogging on my iPad. The game apps are there to distract me. I'm not telling you this so you will send me an invite to play Candy Crush. I don't exactly understand the purpose of those invitations anyway. So don't send me one. I'll just delete it.

The point is, I obviously failed miserably at Candy Crush because here I am posting anyway. Don't you just hate it when you have to wait almost 20 minutes for another life?!?

In addition to playing Candy Crush, I have been doing a little running lately. With two unplanned rest days last week (life happens and you have to learn to roll with it), I was happy to still end the week with 40 miles.

My focus the entire week was to just enjoy each run. I didn't worry about speed or distance. I ran completely based on how I felt. And I ended up with some great runs.

I've learned that sometimes you have to stop focusing so much on your training plan or what your schedule says you need to do and just run.

I finished off the week on Saturday with a late afternoon run. I had 16 planned but cut it short at 12 because it was getting dark and cold faster than I expected. But those 12 miles were some of the best I've had in a long time! My legs felt incredibly strong the entire run.

This week I'll probably throw in a day at the track, but other than that my focus is still on enjoying each run.

I have also learned that enjoying my runs has a lot to do with how I'm eating. If I'm eating poorly, I inevitably end up running poorly. So I'm trying to eat better this week. I've kind of gotten out of control lately, letting myself eat pretty much anything and everything I see. And I'm feeling it!

Eating better also means getting all my water in during the day. It's amazing what a difference that makes as well. I usually drink at least 64 ounces or so per day, but I want to drink at least a gallon. This is helping make sure I don't fall short...

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and a very happy Monday!

  5. ^^Level 295?? Man, I've been stuck at level 65 for like a month. Does that make me more, or less of a loser for only being on level 65?

  6. There's a workaround . . . if you change the date on your phone to the next day, your lives are replenished. The only downside is that you get minus the hours once you set it back.
    In theory, you could just set it forward every time you play though.

    Anyway! I got here from Fitness Friday. I'm almost done with the C25K (eek!!), and I love the inspiration I get from reading about people's journeys with running :) So, thanks for sharing!

  8. When you achieve those aims, you get to shift on to the next problem. That completely new problem will probably require you to established completely new aims. Those people completely new aims may perhaps correspond with the aged kinds, or perhaps they usually are totally different. Constantly know which in turn "game" you might be actively playing, plus the principles to be able to win that will video game, and also keep with all of them. Which gives me personally to another location stage. Candy crush for PC

  10. It truly is a great deal such as nursing. You measure the sufferer and also go for the very best nursing treatment to create away one of the most appealing final result For whatever reason, this reminds me involving placing any 3 way foley cath and also owning a Murphy Trickle. Cleansing the actual bladder, do away with clots, urinate while doing so. And also the saga continues. משחק קנדי קראש

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pon

Raindrops on roses...not so much

I ran 15 miles on Saturday and a barefoot mile today (in addition to four in shoes), but why talk about those things when I can share some of my favorite random things, thanks to Rachelle tagging me! Favorite Thing to Photograph My girls (although I actually didn't take this picture) Favorite Thing to Cook Cupcakes, cookies, brownies. I'm all about the baked goods, mostly because they are my favorite thing to EAT. Favorite Way to Exercise Running, of course Favorite Movie I love movies and have a lot of favorites, but this has been a constant on my list. Favorite Article of Clothing I was going to say jeans, because I could wear jeans every single day. But I could survive without wearing jeans for a week. I couldn't survive without my running shoes for a week. Favorite Flower Tulips Favorite Breakfast French toast! Favorite Cartoon Character I love Rapunzel and Flynn and Belle and the frog in Gnomeo and Juliet. I could probably list about 20
