On the not-so-easy side was this track workout. I’m smiling, but it’s only because I was DONE with the running when I took this photo! Otherwise it was all frowns. (JK, I was listening to this song — thanks Katie! — which made me less miserable)IMG_3243Anthony joined me for an evening (!!!) track session (we overslept yesterday! blah.)IMG_3244He did his own thing while I did 3 miles hard, 1 mile easy, 2 miles hard. It was a monster but I (barely) made it! IMG_3241and now, we’re off to do the work thing followed by more lake time! Some weekend reads for you:

and questions, too!

  • Music while running: yay or nay?
  • Hardest track workout you’ve done lately?

  1. Favorite easy recipe is oven fried chicken. Dip chicken drumsticks in butter( we used smart balance) and then in crushed cornflakes, Parmesan, garlic, salt and pepper. Bake for close to an hour, I think? So good! And a little healthier than fried! :)) #favoritesouthernfoodever

  2. I thought I was the only one who did this, I bring my stbiality. Yes, I deflate it and blow it back up again. The stbiality ball is one of my favorite pieces of equipment. We will be going on vacation in a couple of months and have a Snap Fitness membership. If there is not one near us I am already thinking about what I will bring.
