Happy Fall Y'all
Spooktacular Halloween Carnival
Frightful Run on this Bootiful Halloweeen
I bet you're all wondering how I'm feeling after yesterday's frightful 7 miles. Truth be told I don't feel as bad as I thought I would. My quads are definitely sore and I have blisters but overall I feel good. Mostly my spirits are lifted and I think that is what REALLY matters. George said that he thinks I should run EVERY day because apparently I am a lot more nice when I'm running. Who knew? A running Susan is a happy Susan.
I'll take any opportunity to post that picture because it's not often you get a good picture during race day and I really love this one because I look so HAPPY! I also like to put it up because my cousin Erin says it's her favorite picture and it's an inspiration.
Today the training plan called for cross training. I headed to the gym planning to do the elipitcal but when I got there I decided I really should do the spin bike. I mean why not? I'm able to tolerate it now. I just keep forgetting I can do it. I did 30 minutes of intervals. Running sprints, hills, seated sprint, seated climb etc. It felt good.
While I was on the spin bike I was directly behind all these crazy women on stair climbers.
I've now fullfilled my bike portion of the blog. On to the mom portion.
I signed up at the beginning of the year to donate Playdough for Ella's (and Jack's class). I was told you would have to buy a four pack of playdough and donate it. My month is November. Well, last week I was reminded to bring my playdough and it should be BROWN. Um hello where does one get brown playdough except in a 96 count multipack that costs $26 and you get .5 onces?
I'm just that cool and I learned how to make my own. Thank you Google! I don't know how I lived through
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
1 package Kool-Aid unsweetened (of your color choice). To make brown use Crystal Light Iced Tea
1 T oil
- Bring water, oil and Kool-Aid (Crystal Light) to a boil (ok that picture isn't boiling oops)
- Add Salt and flour
- Mix thoroughly
- Cool and enjoy
I wish I would have done this with the kids because they really would have loved it. I was in a hurry and made it during homework time. i.e. Nicholas is in the office and Ella and Jack are "locked" in the bedroom watching a movie. Definitely a rainy day activity except it never rains here in Texas.
