Hey everyone! How are you doing?! Yep, it has been a couple of days since I last blogged (okay, more like four), but I promise you, I’ll get back to my regularly scheduled blogging once summer league coaching is over. When will that be?! Whelp, about another month! Sound good?! I hope so because I miss you guys!! Thanks for your comments, too!! You guys are wonderful!! XOXO!!

INDEPENDENCE DAY 5K WAS A NO GO BECAUSE OF HURRICANE ARTHUR!! I WAS TOTALLY BUMMED ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO RACE TODAY, BUT WHAT COULD I DO?! HURRICANE ARTHUR HAD OTHER PLANS FOR ME!

Instead of running the 5k today, I cycled on my new Kurt Kinetic Fluid Trainer!! I bought this sucker off of Craigslist for $100!! Hello, what a fab deal, right?! It’s a perfectly maintained princess pink trainer. I love it because #1, it’s adorable, because #2, it’s a fluid trainer, and because #3, it’s pink!! You can never go wrong with pink!! Well, at least that’s how I see it! I cycled for an hour straight (while watching Scream 2) and kept my cadence right around 85-90 rpms, which is good! Every time I get on my bike, I’m learning more and more about the mechanics of it all! I’ve been on the road a few times, but nothing too serious yet. I’m trying to get more comfortable with my bike first! That’s important!

Tomorrow, I’m hitting up Virginia Beach for a sunny and fun 6 mile run with my husband!! It should be a good time! I like to change up my runs. It keeps our relationship spicy (that is my relationship with running). Hehe! I wake up so thankful to run/swim/workout!! You can never take advantage of the freedom to exercise. What a great way to start the day!! What are you most thankful for today?!

DO YOU LIKE TO BE DECKED OUT IN PINK????!!!! ARE YOU RUNNING TOMORROW?!

HAVE A HAPPY 4TH EVERYONE!! XOXO!!

    Sorry about the 5k but it might have been fun to run in a hurricane? 🙂 Love the pink trainer. Enjoy your run with your husband tomorrow. I had a “run rest” day but yard work all day! Happy 4th. 🙂

    I’m so cut off I didn’t even know you folks on the coast were facing a hurricane! We had perfect weather around my parts (55F morning temps, clear and sunny skies with a light breeze – it felt like spring!!) and I got to run the 4th of July 5k in my work-town for the first time since I became a runner! (Spoiler – I PRed big on this one!). Stay safe over there, and have a fun run on the beach! That sounds really lovely. I’ll be running with a group of military vets tomorrow for 10 miles, and then going for a pretty epic bike ride Sunday.

    Later!

        Thank you, very much! I have a good training/support / “pusher” group around here.

        Any races coming up for you?

      2. Kristin

        Hey! Hope you’re having a great weekend!! I have a run-swim-run coming up on Saturday!! Excited about it! It’s my favorite race!

    If it’s any consolation, Arthur killed my swim, and my lift….I have a window unit in my studio where the weights are, and the power going off and on threw the temp in there.

    Hope it was a good 4th, nonetheless…. ♥

      Hey!!! 🙂 🙂 Currently, I compete in aquathlons (run-swim-runs), but I’m starting to get on the bike and ease into cycling. I have a looooong way to go (confidence wise), but I’m hoping to do a triathlon sometime in the future!! XOXO!! You should do it! Go for it!!

    Hope you had an awesome Virginia Beach run! Your pink trainer if very cute and I couldn’t see you using one unless it was pink. When you start doing triathlons, you are going to be a force to be reckoned with!!

      Angie, what a compliment!! Thank you!!! Soooo sweet of you to say!! I mean it, your words mean a lot to me!!! My husband keeps telling me that, but I just need to get more confident on the bike! It will take some time, but hopefully I’ll get it down. Hehe, I love the color pink!! You’re awesome! Have a wonderful Monday!!

    I’m glad you are safe and ok! Hurricanes are no joke.
    I was just thinking about what bike trainer I want to buy for this winter… I have a really old fan powered one, but I want to switch to fluid or rollers. What a great score for you!
