Nancy: I LOVE PASTA!! I've had DH buy the veggie pastas, he's not all that picky. He prefers them now. But you're right, it has to be limited. Same for brown rice and whole grain bread. DH LOVES gold potatoes tho. But he's great with veggies and fruits so he's always good for making sure they are on the grocery list.
Gosh, it's heartbreaking to watch all the fires in Australia. So many families left devastated. And the animals, just distressing. Hope the brief rain helps.
I skied a couple of times but preferred snow boarding which we did alot when we lived in Denver, and had ski passes to the ski slopes. I don't snow board anymore since we moved from Denver ............ and my knee issues started.
I like cross-country skiing, sold my skis though ........ should consider it again. Northern AZ has great ski trails.
I bought snow shoes (specifically for racing) when we moved to MN in 2012 ....... and I really enjoy them when I went on snow shoe hikes. I still would like to run a snow shoe race ..... at least once.
I'm still 'considering' the FYGB run. Just shivering thinking about it. But I know I would be so proud of myself .....once I'm finish and warm. LOL!! It's all for bragging rights, ha! I'd run it, not race it. But maybe I should race it, I'd get done sooner, haha!
Erica: I meant to say that the house to house parties on NYE sounded so much fun!! Wonderful way to stay connected to neighbors. We use to ride our snow mobiles from house to house of DH's relatives' when we lived/worked in northcentral ND. Lots of food, but my rule was no drinking. Maybe that's why I still don't drink on NYE....... until midnight if we are home. Not much because I still do my annual run on NY's day.
Today: drove to gym. Plan is to run a few miles outside and then do rest of workout in gym. It was sunny, 'warm' around 32 degrees, gotta run outside! 2 miles near lake around campus, then turnaround, 2 miles back. Then on TM for some speed workouts for 2.2 miles with some inclines. Finished 6.2 miles. Kettle ball, weights and stretching. Great workout!!
Have eye appt tomorrow. Will also get blood drawn for lipids, thyroid, etc. Getting this done after the holidays may not have good results, LOL!
I have a dilemma, need some input from you all:
April 18, Whiskey Basin, HM or 33k (20.5 miles). Which should I run?
Because, 2 weeks later, May 2, is the Shiprock trail marathon. I already registered for this.
I'm thinking the HM .......
