I'm a big fan of the sun salutation yoga flow.

I had a serious moment of WTF this morning. Between listening/reading about the refugees in Europe, a friend saying that Black Lives Matter is wrong,  the Texas 9th grader who got arrested and suspended for building and bringing a clock to school, Donald Trump is considered a serious candidate for president with a slogan of "we will have so much winning"?!!?  What does that even mean ... so much winning?!

 

I'm reminded why I stopped listening to the news and generally ignore Facebook ... time to find some metal to drown out the world.

Ughhhh....news and facebook feeds and for me...tumblr.  I need to avoid tumblr cause seriously I get so angry sometimes.

 

And wow that is like Looney Tunes meet Ren & Stimpy...a little odd.

 

That last joke made me laugh though.  I love slapstick.

I like the sprint w-o you had today, very interesting.

 

It was a tough workout - the sprinting was partly up hill which doesn't go suit my knee which is frustrating.

Managed a 10:02 on Saturday's 9 miler - mostly cause my watch was off by a short distance so I'm going to give to myself as I thought the run went well even though it was way hotter than expected - thanks Texas!

Great pictures! The lighting is amazing - use of shadow is really cool. Love the texture provided by the brick wall.

2015-09-21 - Week 2, Day 1
Quest 1 : Run like QuickSilver
Got my tempo slotted for Thursday - 4-5 miles worth of speedy goodness and long run is Saturday should be ~10 miles!
 
We did some running at camp Monday as we did "Adventure Race" where we get broken up into teams and while the majority of peoples are doing ab exercises as a solo runner goes along one of four paths to get points for the team in the form of items at the end of the path - medicine balls (1pt per pound), tennis balls (2pts each) and small cones (1pt each). You are allowed to get only one item then return ... team with the most points wins.

Quest 2 : Get Black Widow's Flexibility
Did do some stretching last night but need to get more in - have a massage on Sunday so woot!

Quest 3 : HULKBUSTER Smash Diet
As mentioned at close of last week we did a big batch o' overnight oatmeal for breakfast! Need to start plotting more lunch time goodness too

Life Quest : Create a Vision
I might be shooting some cosplayers for a friend at Anime Weekend Atlanta this weekend!

OK, I'm totally making those omelets in a bag for quick breakfasts. If you don't mind salad for lunch, I've had a fair bit of luck making a big salad at the beginning of the week and then just adding some protein and extra veggies each day. The Adventure Race sounds like fun! What is this camp? 

 

Hope we get to see pictures of the cosplay.
