- I have actually done speedwork every week for the last four weeks! This is very impressive… for me. Ha ha. I wonder how long I will keep it up?! My prediction is that I will stop after the Wisconsin Half on May 3rd.
- Every morning when I wake up and stretch, I have really weird cracking around my neck and clavicle! I stretch on the days that I teach strength classes, but that’s it, so I decided to do some yoga at home this morning. YAWN.
- Besides riding my bike more this spring, I am looking forward to playing on a softball team in May! It’s something Steven and I have talked about doing for a few summers! I hope it’s as fun as I remembering it being from childhood! Is anyone else playing any team sports this spring or summer?
- Aww, that makes me think of when Steven and I were on a bowling league in 2008, and it was just the two of us, because we hadn’t made many friends out here yet and didn’t know anyone else to be on our team. Things have really changed! I feel grateful we have so many local friends now!
