Halfway done 15/30

Today marks the midway point for Juneathon.

Today marks the day that I start to think, I’m not very good at this blogging everyday part!  (I might want to go back to just submitting pics!)

Today also marks one week from when this exercise gets real again, when that training for my next marathon becomes my focus and I start to lose friends and family members because I have gone into the marathon training world.  Okay maybe not all that, I am not an elite athlete, just a wanna be!  But truthfully this is my last week of slacking and I really need to work on my food plan and training plan so I’m making this short and sweet.

Today I cycled 14.5 miles at the gym and did some weight training.  Can’t wait until tomorrow when I can barely lift my arms over my head due to the weights.  😉

Happy halfway through day of Juneathon!

Gotta get those feet up for recovery

Yesterday ‘s trip to providence where we walked about two miles. For a month in June they light these cauldrons at night.

So pretty. Looking out to the ocean way out there.

Water fire at night. So cool

A busy weekend and my joy of bringing you pics for Juneathon means happy camper because this post will be short and sweet. Enjoy!

2 days of Juneathon – 9/30 and 10/30

After running around like a crazy woman and spending the evening out with friends last night, I woke up this morning and realized that I had forgotten to blog for juneathon.  Oops!  Only 10 days in and already forgetting (really that is the story of my life, I go upstairs and forget why I came upstairs!).

So here is what I would have written if I remembered:

I ran 4.26 miles and it was hot and humid but I ran.  (really not that exciting)

So for today’s Junathon let’s make it a little more interesting…

After 4 solid days of play, play, play

Today is the day, day, day!

I rest but I stretch because my body is the best

When I take a break and rest!

(Very corny poem but it was a little more interesting, I hope!)

Happy 9th and 10th day of Juneathon.

 

Back home and to the gym for Juneathon 8/30

After a wonderful weekend of running on the lovely trails and beautiful view of the lake, I’m back and to the gym for today’s workout.  Today was a cross train day so that meant butt on the bike, some weights, crunches and lots of stretching.  The benefit of being at the gym today was the 10 minute free chair massage which I took full advantage of.  I also finished the day with my last one hour tap class before recital in a week.  Here is hoping that goes well.

How was your 8th day?  Sticking with it.  I’m trying!

One of the most incredible sunsets I've seen in a while on the last night before we had to come home.

It’s a rail trail for an old train that use to go around the lakes. Most of the time the trail runs right next to the old rails.

image

Love the rocks that were cut out for the rail line

image

One lake running into another. If your boat can’t fit under the bridge in the distance it can’t fit on our lake. I’m okay with that!

image

Lake wentworth! This trail runs alongside two lakes ending at “the big lake”. This is our lake.

image

All those land bodies in the middle and right are islands. Our island is the one just to the right of the the point.

image

Love this area, it takes you to the beach.

image

Allen A Beach. Use to serve a resort like you see on Dirty Dancing the movie. Makes me want to watch it again. Love that movie.

Waiting on my ride to the island.  8.06 miles done at my new slow down pace of 9:05 per mile.

My chariot awaits with my handsome wind blown prince.

Now time to relax on the hammock and enjoy. I hope you enjoyed it too!

Trying something a little different because today we made a trek up to our family lake house and that means no laptop to do my Juneathon post from. It also is lucky for

you because it means i won’t go on and on and on because writing a blog from you smartphone is not that much fun. Cue all the pics you will see for the next few days so I can keep myself in good graces with the Juneathon master (whomever that is).

Today’s activities included a small nature walk and pulling of those pesky weeds by our lake house.   I guess that is time on my feet and a little core work and stretching to get the weeds.   It counts in my book. Happy 5th day of Juneathon!
