Workouts and Randomness

I think I am ready for January to be over. Everyone in our family has been hit with some sort of sickness, but here's the kicker-- we don't really seem to even all have had the same one! Of course, viruses don't necessarily act the same in all people, so who knows, I just thought it super strange. Last week I picked a sick girl up from school, this week I picked up a sick girl from school, plus we've had some early release days and days off of school . . . needless to say, my schedule has been all wonky. Such is life as a stay at home mom! Luckily the only thing to suffer was a few of my workouts and that isn't the end of the world. I do love being able to easily take care of the girls when they need to be home sick. 

Last week's walking and running totaled 21.2 miles and 1906 feet of elevation. The other training point I am stuck on (in addition to not knowing how to balance road and trail miles) is how to factor walking in to my training schedule. Is it cross training? Can it take the place of any running miles? Man, I need a coach. 

My friend Sarah and I have been having a blast working out together at her gym (soon to be my gym, too!) once a week. We have been taking turns coming up with workouts and typically will focus on either upper or lower body and then some abs. Always abs. 

Now for the randomness:

*I have been flying through the entire series of Friends. Watching it on the iPad or Kindle means I just put on an episode while I am doing something (like typing this blog post!). Just started season 7.

*recently I read an article on Huffington Post that nicely explains why I almost completely stopped using Facebook. The author, Dawn Q. Landau, writes, in part:


Anyways, it is a great article. I urge you to read it. 

*How about those Seahawks, eh?


*And speaking of play-off games, I have suddenly become obsessed with figuring out what the heck happened with the Patriots' deflated balls
