Dragons and Treadmills…and annihilating 800s.

Let’s check in on the weather, shall we? It’s been a few days, maybe it has changed…

LOL. No. And as the winter drags on this, which you’ve probably seen, makes me laugh more and more…

Right? Haha.

Wednesday night I had a board of directors’ meeting for my community association. The community has a population of almost 13,000 and I’m into my second term on the board. I joined it not having a real keen interest in city politics, but believing it was important to have a voice in your community. What a learning experience it has been!

We spent most of this week’s meetings pouring over city plans to waste taxpayers money to build a useless parkway that cuts through our community.

Last night’s track workout was awesome. Normally I despise 800s but I was in control last night (rather than them tossing me around).

Workout was 2 sets of 4x800m at 5k pace. We had 2 minutes between 400s and 5 minutes between the sets. Funny how quickly those minutes go by! LOL

Set 1: 3:10, 3:05, 3:04, 3:02

Set 2: 3:05, 3:02, 3:01, 2:57 (boo-yah!)

It was awesome, we all worked as a team while doing the workout – supporting those who were struggling and cheering on those who were rocking it! It definitely makes the workouts easier. Aaaaand, like last week, I made sure to keep the pace sane during the intervals and so, once again, I am NOT suffering from allergies today!!! WOOHOO!!

Ran 6 miles this morning…and, just in case you’re wondering, no, it does not feel awesome getting up early after track the night before! LOL. But what IS awesome…

Yes, I continue DEVOUR Game of Thrones while on the ratmill.

And I will leave you with this for the weekend…THIS is how she got me under her command spell RIGHT from the start…taken the day I brought her home.

    Baby Abby is so cute!! I don’t know how you do the cold weather. Today we are having light snow flurries and I am miserable (and I have only been outside less than 5 minutes total today)
