I’ve had some people mention to me recently that they miss reading my blog. While it may or may not be the case that 50% of these people are my mother (hi mom!), I thought I’d try to get back into it.
Still not running; still ok with that. I think the brutal cold irritates my stress fracture more than milder weather. Another side effect of this weather–my cat keeps tricking me into naps.
When I’m not being tranquilized by my cat I’ve been doing other indoor activities, especially ones that use the oven. I made this Banana Bread recipe and it turned out pretty well.
I even went rogue and added pineapple to the batter, in keeping with my New Year’s Resolution to not be so tied to following recipes. Pretty tasty!
I’m still going to the gym 2-3 times per week. I’m starting to mix in fast walking with other types of cardio. My leg is doing well with 10 or so minutes of walking at a time. Plus I get the opportunity to feed my competitive side as I focus on how many people I can pass on the indoor track. Many of these people are elderly or think jeans are an appropriate thing to wear for exercise at a gym, to give you an idea of where the passing people bar is set. But that doesn’t stop me from loving every minute of it–I told you, I’m competitive.
I am loving not being tied to a strict half marathon schedule that requires me to be at the gym most nights. Tonight I went to the grocery store instead and used this adorable tiny cart that made me feel like a giant!
