I am so happy that today is Thursday because I have A TON of random things to share with you this morning!
The other day when I had the maintenance crew from my community at my house to fix my closet door (don’t even ask) they let me know that I am known as the Energizer Bunny because of how often and how long I run loops around the neighborhood.
Rather than question this Energizer Bunny name, I just used it as an opportunity to show more people my Hat Tricking race medals.
Guess what I did yesterday?!
It has been over a year since I last took a spin class!
I received a random email on Tuesday from my old gym, Lifetime Fitness, inviting me back for alumni week (read: free guest pass) so I decided this was the perfect week to make use of it!
I am slowly easing back into running so the spin class was perfect for my legs, especially for my hamstrings which have been a bit sore.
I never invested in spin shoes because I certainly don’t take the classes enough and really, I find that the few times that I do take a class, my sneakers fit just fine inside those clip things.
I love spin but it just isn’t running. I am happy to say though that it was the right exercise choice for yesterday because the extra day off from running has made me feel like myself again.
I forgot to tell you something super important:
When I stopped by the Pro Compression booth at the expo to pick up another pair of socks, I mentioned in conversation with the rep that my compression sleeves had ripped that morning when I put them on for the drive to Pennsylvania.
I was not expecting him to REPLACE the sleeves for free! Talk about standing by their products.
I am not even a Pro Compression ambassador or affiliate in any way. Just a runner who likes Pro Compression socks and appreciates quality customer service.
Did you know about these compression socks by the way?
They are part of the Running Skirts product line and I adore their patterns and cuteness but wonder how they compare to Pro Compression.
I want this book because it’s super funny and totally relatable.
I flipped through it briefly while I was in Barnes and Noble over the weekend during my shopping break in Bethlehem.
I was also really excited to spot the cookbook, SERIOUSLY DELISH, recently released by one of my most favorite bloggers, Jessica at How Sweet Eats.
I love reading her posts each day. Aside from the recipes, she cracks me up, reminds me of myself and I just enjoy her so much.
Speaking of recipes, I need to start following some. Like, I need to do something with everything I am pinning or at the very least, get a little more creative come meal time.
I have no issue when it comes to my own personal creativity at cookie time, but dinner lately needs a change.
Cookie recipe to come tomorrow!
I don’t know what I am looking for come dinner time these days. Something different but not involved.
I am thinking about forcing myself to pick one pinned recipe a week. I will let you know if I hold myself to it.
Be sure to check out what everyone else is thinking about today!
What have you been eating for dinner lately?
Do you often cook what you pin on Pinterest?
Ever try those pretty compression socks?
