A City Run

I've been running intervals on Mondays but I switched up my schedule this week since I was in Washington. 

 Look at those clouds. I was sure I would be drenched. I didn't end up getting rained on, but boy was it humid!
 I went out of my way to photograph this Rhododendron. It is amazing!
My "trail" run went by a Jewish cemetery. 

 Nothing flat about this 5 miler! 
Ah, home sweet home. (well, home away from home)

Weekend Hiking

It was a gorgeous weekend and hubby had Saturday off so we went for an early morning hike. 

 Three Fingered Jack
 Trying to figure out where the trail is.
Creek Crossings

 Three Sisters and Mt Washington
 Stopped to enjoy an early lunch.
And this was our view.
It is so wonderful now that the weather has been more springlike to get out and enjoy LIFE!

A Night out and Morning Run

We spent the day in Portland on Friday.
 Met my son for lunch. 
 Had a delish ginger martini

And a night out with the Moody Blues. They may be getting old, but they can still put on a show. 

 It was supposed to rain on Saturday morning, but this is what I woke to.  I didn't waste any time lacing up and heading out the door to the waterfront for a run.

It was my first run of the year in Portland and I LOVED it!
Choose to move more this week!

My week

It has been a great week! After my new trail run on Friday I ran a 5k on Saturday with a small group of Moving Mountain participants. 

This was the "home" stretch. I came in second! Woo-Hoo!

And this medicine ball was my prize! I love it! I worked my core this week and know this little ball will get lots of use.

I did my weekly long run on Wednesday but am hoping the weather cooperates on Saturday so I can get out again. We will be out of town, so the treadmill is not an option.

Choose to be healthy!
Happy weekend!

Spring has Sprung!

I was finally able to run outside in short sleeves this week! We have 5-6 days coming of low 70's! Whoop! Whoop!
This was a new-to-me place in Bend. The walking path is to the left, but trying to be kind to my joints by running off trail when I can.
Tomorrow is a short running day and I'm happy about that!
Have a healthy weekend.

Lovely Veggies

Doesn't get a lot better than this in the spring time. Especially love the asparagus!

Yoga Dog

It is best to do yoga when Porter is napping!

 I did my best when he was trying to help. I'm finding yoga is good in between runs.
 Long slow run on Saturday
 Repeats/intervals on Monday. Then I'm wiped out!

Food Comparison Tool

This week I was wondering which greens I use in my smoothie were actually better for me and I came across this great site!

You can see above I compared, chard, spinach and kale, 100grams (about 1 cup) raw.

It was very detailed and if you'd like to see the rest of these compared go HERE.

If you want to compare your own foods click HERE for the home page.

Lot of good information at our fingertips.

Continuing my Healthy Path

I'm amping up my running in preparation for a half marathon mid-June. 
I got some beautiful veggies this week including, kale, chard and broccolini.

Despite my moving more and eating right I have not dropped one pound since starting the Moving Mountains program. Very frustrating!
