Today I turn 38. That’s right. 3.8.
The most common two questions I get when someone finds out my birthday is on St. Patrick’s Day is:
- Are you Irish? No. Not even close. Although I do have a shamrock tattoo.
- That must be a really fun day to have your birthday on? It was when in my high school and college years for obvious reasons. But now, as a mature woman. Not so much. It’s a pain in the butt to go out to dinner because there are drunks everywhere. And almost every place has a corned beef and cabbage special. Ummmm…gross and no thanks.
Lately…I’ve been thinking about fine lines. Ahem – see the above reason. After reading about Frownies on Tina’s blog, I decided I should give it a try. If it doesn’t work, I’ll be frowning on Frownies.
Lately…My kid’s finished ski school last week. We had 5 weeks of fantastic weather. I mean spring skiing in February? Amazing! I’m sad to see our Sunday’s on the mountain go. It was a fun way to spend time as a family and for me to get back into boarding. I’m happy to say I did NOT fall on the Magic Carpet again. Go me!
Lately…I’ve been severely missing my usual yoga routine of classes 4x/week. But with ski school and basketball/gymnastics on Saturday morning I couldn’t make it to any classes on the weekends. Well, basketball is over. And so is ski school so that means yoga class is on! I’m most excited for Sunday morning with Elizabeth. We always do some fun inversion practice at the end of the class.
Lately…I’ve been thinking about the events of last years Boston Marathon a lot. Facebook reminds me of pics from last years training. I hear the training tales of my friends who are running this year. I have patients asking me if I’m running it this year (and then I have to explain the whole story of how I spend the majority of 2015 injured and unable to run so NO!). I’d love to say that none of it bothers me but it still does. And I think it always will.
Lately…I haven’t run in 4 days. I have had some type of cold/throat thing going on and have not felt like running at all. I’m feeling much better and plan on running today but I must admit that sleeping in has been awful nice.
Lately…I realized I need a goal race. For the longest time my main goal has been to return to normal (to me) running. Goal accomplished. I know I said I wanted to run a race in March. The problem is that I haven’t found one that – 1. I want to do and 2. fits my schedule. I know – huge problems. So it looks like April will be the month. And I find out Friday if I’ll be running up one huge ass hill in June! If so, there will be mega hill repeats in my future.
Lately…I’ve been slacking on foam rolling and using The Stick. My Achilles and calves have been feeling tight. I went for my monthly deep tissue massage last weekend and Jess firmly told me that I’m an idiot and need to get back on that ASAP. I know, I know. DONE.
Lately…I allowed myself NOT to write a blog post for Wednesday. I felt like crap, was exhausted and just plain uninspired. It’s taken a long time for me to realize it’s OK not to blog on my normal schedule. I blame it on FOMO but you know what? I didn’t miss out on one thing! And it was surprisingly freeing.
Thanks for letting me do some Thinking Out Loud today!
