It’s Sunday and I’m tired, so I’ll keep this short and simple!
1. Get excited. Netflix now has old Cartoon Network Shows: Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Lab, Samurai Jack…I know it’s lame, but I loved these shows, and I’m going to be spending a lot of time watching these.
2. Ok, so what’s the deal with skim milk? The last few years I’ve drank skim milk because I drink *a lot* of milk. Like a gallon+ a week. I used to drink 2%, but my doctor told me to switch to skim, so I did. Then last week I went to grab the milk while we were on vacation and my dad made me get 1% because apparently they put some sort of nasty stuff in skim milk but it’s not on the ingredients list? I searched the internet and couldn’t find anything about it. Finally, I came across this post from Butter Believer. So…I don’t really know what to believe!! Are there any milk opinions out there?
3. Yay, new socks!
Ok, so these are ridiculously comfortable (and very much on sale). I got my REI dividend with a 20% coupon, so they were maybe $2. I took them out on my long run today and now I want more! That’s the problem with nice things…you get spoiled by them.
4. Speaking of my long run, I finally got 20 miles in! Thank goodness. It wasn’t a great run, but it wasn’t bad either. I checked in my Garmin records and it was about 10 minutes faster than my first 20 miler, which was a really strong run for me way back in September. So, that’s promising. I took the first 10 miles pretty easy then picked up the pace when I turned around and felt decent. The only bad thing…around mile 15, my right butt-cheek started hurting really bad, so I stopped to walk for a bit until the pain went away. I ended up having to stop and walk a few more times because of the pain and stopped to stretch a few times, which seemed to help. I spent pretty much the entire afternoon stretching and icing, but it still feels tight, which is totally freaking me out! Anyone familiar with this type of pain?
5. Fun cupcakes!
I used my new decorator which I found on clearance at Target and it actually worked pretty well! You never know with things that are cheap (it was less than $5), so I was impressed. The frosting is Nutella flavored =)
Well, I hope everyone else had a good weekend!
