It’s been (is still being) an expensive week around here. February is when we end up purchasing our tickets for our summer vacation + summer camps AND we are having some technology issues. Even though we save up for it and I have the money, I swear I can hear my credit card crying from overuse.
1. Last week, my Garmin went from perfect to refusing to hold a charge for more than a day. I have to give it a soft reset every single time I use it and it now resides on the charger whenever I am not actually using it. Anyone else had this happen? I’m not loving the runkeeper app (seems to run down my battery super fast + isn’t as accurate, which may be the phone, not the app) and I really really don’t want to buy a new Garmin right now. I’d love any advice you have!
2. Yesterday, I went to yoga and was the only one in the class. I’m sad ’cause this means that particular class will be cancelled, but I had an AMAZING workout. The instructor basically gave me a private lesson and spent a lot of time fixing my poses. Then she did some targeted core work and stretches with me (holy hell are my quads tight). At the end of the session, she showed me how to use the yoga blocks and I did a full on back bend!!! I haven’t done a back bend since I was a kid. I get why celebrities workout with their own yogi. Anyways, it was awesome and I now know exactly how my muscles are connected. How do I know that? Because every time I move, some muscle that I don’t think I moved, protests. Yeah, I’m hella sore.
3. I’ve spent the last few days working on our summer vacation. I finally managed to nail things down (and actually buy plane tickets), so I now know which states I’ll race in this summer. 2012 will be the year we finally get back to Oregon and Washington! (I’ll also be hitting up the Outer Banks of North Carolina and Connecticut between now and August). If you live near/in these places, hit me up on the comments. I’d love to meet up with you!
