Daily Chatter

Monday, May 10, 2010


It was a wonderful morning after Mother's Day in our house.
My daughter, inspired by Tonia @ Racing with Babes (socks) and Jill @ Run with Jill (loving pink) rocked a super cute outfit this morning.  I know she always has a better when she feels pretty so I love it when she really digs her outfit!

I got out for the last of my jogger-less runs this morning.  3.5 miles (26:57)  Having Hubbs home to help out was GREAT!  My neck and back soreness (that I think stemmed from overuse pushing the jogger on my hilly runs) is much improved after several days of non-jogger runs.  Tonight I return to being a jogging stroller mama with Hubbs working at the new house for a few days.  I will let you know how the neck and back hold up.

I will leave you with a few shots from the Catch Me If You Can trail 10 miler.  These are from the second lap around the lake.  I was not surprised to see I was still smiling!   I love trail running.







3 Changes Challenges

May 6th through 9th - Thursday through Sunday

1. h2o/non-caffeinated - ++64 oz. each day - Success

2. Destress - Praying is back to being a priority where it should be.  Setting aside that time really helps me focus on other things that help me realize my stresses are really not as big as I let them appear. - Success
3. Xtrain - This remains a challenge that I have not committed to.  I can get myself to stretch after runs and do my sits and push ups sometimes but I have not made cross training a priority.  I know I will not see changes in my conditioning if I don't do this!  - Needs Improvement (I stink at cross training!)

  2. Love that outfit - she is adorable!
    I hope that the stroller isn't the ultimate cause of your neck problems! Otherwise you might be up a creek! Maybe doing some good neck stretches and core stretches when you finish (which will also score you some Amanda points!) will be necessary when you finish your stroller runs? Just a thought...
    Happy Monday!
