Meet Peter Sam: (again)
He loved modeling all of those hats – he didn’t squirm at all — it probably helped that he had just woken up from a nap! 🙂 And I love that with the first hat he is Uncle (Peter) Sam!
I even wore my UMD (Univ of MN-Duluth) sweater! Our mascot is the Bulldog! How perfect is that?
Jason totally laughed at me when I pulled this sweater out – he said “we’ve been together for 4 years and I have NEVER seen that sweater before!” True – I never wear it, but I just love it so much. My dad found it for me at Goodwill (or another thrift store, I can’t remember) before I started college.
Peter Sam is such a sweetheart!!! Sometimes I wish Jason and I had a dog, but Jason is allergic (and to be honest I don’t know how to take care of a dog!)
Rewind to Saturday morning –
I ran 11 miles.
I ran 11 miles in under 2 hours (my goal!)
My knee didn’t hurt. At. All.
I think the biggest difference has been my trusty foam-roller. In case you don’t know what one is, click here and you can see a picture of one and someone showing a few common stretches using it. Like I said earlier last week, this thing is worth its weight in gold. I really think daily foam-rolling is something I need to keep up with (and I intend to!)
And a few days ago I mentioned that reading about bloggers who run 7-8 min/miles – I didn’t mean to sound like I was complaining. I get caught in the comparison trap and I shouldn’t let those thoughts creep in. Running AT ALL is something I should be happy about – thanks to all of you who pointed that out in the comments or through emails.
Plans for the day:-More work on the new blog (hopefully to be unveiled in a week or two… -Grocery store -Meal planning for the week (any suggestions on recipes to try?) -Laundry (!!!) -Yoga -Read -Relax!
Enjoy your day!
