My company (HI MOM and Dad!) is gone. I love having company. We have had someone come every month this year. Now what to do. I think I will plan my own trip. But for today, I shall bake.
We made muffins today.
I was reaching for the chocolate chips when Isabella said “Let’s put blueberries in them!” Yes, of course…berries. I quickly closed the pantry and went with my child’s healthier option.
They were pretty good.
Now I just hope the mailman comes by so I can share them…or I guess I could put them in the freezer.
Or maybe gobble them all up.
Time for a muffin break.

An early morning swim woke me up today. It was fun to swim in the moonlight. Only 20 days until the TRI sprint. Weeeeeeee!
Rain has arrived here in The Valley. Much to the dismay of many road bikers. I was looking forward to a ride today but I don’t want to risk bailing on the slippy surfaces. Can’t wait to try my new TREK out.
Yesterday I did a 6 mile run for the first time in a very long time. It went well, I was with some people a little faster than me so that helped get it done in around 61 minutes which is a PB for me. I am proud, but not satisfied.
My IT band started to squeak around 4 miles but I managed to get through it relatively pain free-which is nice.
Now I am sipping on a hot toddy. Hot water, lemon, and honey. Very delicious. Ice packs on appropriate areas.
The In-laws rolled into town last night. I love having Company. We had a nice dinner of honey glazed ham, mashed potatoes, minty peas, and salad. With coffee and dessert too. The most important part.
I’m off to a Doctor’s appointment today for the wee one and then some bonding with the Grandparents. Should be fun.
Have a great week guys!
Happy April Fool’s Day!
Is that a bear in the backyard?? Oh no, it’s a rattlesnake!

I met a new friend in the hood who lives a hop, skip, and a jump from me. Today we carpooled to the Y at 5:15am! We owned the early morning spin class. 20 miles with imaginary hills. Wow-it was intense, but fun.
The swimming portion of my group has been very refreshing. It’s nice to do a different exercise and stretch different muscles. We swam 1750 yards on Monday morning at 5:30am. Yes, I’m turning into a crazy early morning person. Well, I have always been a bit crazy.
I’m happy to report that my IT band seems to be behaving itself. I have been icing it and foam rolling it nearly every day. This has helped immensely.
This is the race that I am training for. SPRINT TRI
Should be a good one.
So for now, get out there and walk, bike, stretch, run, swim, hobble, spin, or hike people!
It will make you feel better all day long.

I learned how to change my own bike tire today. It is not as easy as I thought it would be.
Have you guys ever had to change your own tire?
Has it been a long time since you rode a bike? Wanna feel alive and happy? Get on a bike and ride!
