Now that I have caught you up on my vacation life-I can move into my I’m back at home and boring life. On Saturday morning after my run, I came home to this.
We boarded our dogs at the groomers and my mom asked them to shave our dog. Apparently it’s quite common in Golden Retrievers in the summer months…who knew.
Let’s see if there are any other honorable mentions in my life. My pancakes were looking brown today and they are pumpkin so I decided to photograph them for interest. I am a true believer that pumpkin pancakes make the most photographic. I also a true believer that if you add sprinkles to anything, it makes it 1000X better.
Monday is normally aDuBs day off from me. I mean the pool is closed, she has lessons and class, I have class and aerobics so we normally don’t see each other. But today I forced into some Panera with me. Why-because it’s good and I needed my daily dose of Anna. (Seriously why are people friends with me?).
Today I just did a standard 1 hour slow and easy run. I’m tapering down for my big race on Satruday which I’m super pumped about. I’m clearly living an eventful day today. Without all the extra working out and such, I have nothing to fill my time with. I had read everyone’s blog by like 8am ha.
Well blogging besties. I’m off to take my Human Anatomy practical. Don’t worry feel free to throw out the “that’s what she said jokes” because I’ve already been there.
I’m disappearing tomorrow as I have some celebrations to attend to. It may or may not have to do with running in giant granny panties while drinking and anchoring a relay. I keep it classy in my life.
Question for you:
1. What did you do for your 21st birthday?
2. Have you ever tapered for a race? Do you like it?
I don’t do full tapers because my body does not react with them very well. I do much better if I slow my miles down (swimming and running) versus cutting them. I am way to stiff after rest days actually. It’s with that for swimming and running. When we taper for both-I take two days off and do light activity the day before. It has always worked well for me and you know what they say…do what works best.
