Blame it on the ch-ch-ch-ch-ceviche

The title has nothing to do with the post, it’s just something funny that we say where I work all the time. Oh well! Onto some pictures!

Well it’s another NikeMom’s Foto Friday. Hooray! I love me some photo Friday and I have some interesting photos from the past few days. First off, here’s one of me and the bro, T last weekend when we went out to dinner. This was the same night when he was walking away for me and I called his name to remind him where to cross the street and someone looked to him and said, “Hey bro, your mom’s calling you.” FAIL.

Then we have some great pictures from my recent 20 miler. This was me ready to go!
Then we have the lovely ice bath picture. I literally just used cold water and a bag of ice, but it was almost melted at this point. I wore my bathing suit and it WASN’T fun but I listened to my ipod to pass time. I really like my alfalfa hair in this picture.

Finally, yesterday I was a good car owner and got my car washed and oil changed. I drive a Scion TC and my nickname is Koo. My liscence plate even says, “The Koo”. If my mom knew what I was driving around in she would probably tell me that I was, “living in filth.” It was getting to the point where my car was getting too disgusting. I don’t think I’ve washed it since October! To my defense though, “The Koo” is parked outside ALL day and ALL night. There is no covering, so it’s constantly being bombed by leaves, bird poop, fog, mist, rain, etc. But now! Now look how speedy and clean my little squirrel is! I am a proud mama. Driving home last night was kind of weird though, because my car was SO clean.

I am still contemplating the race on Sunday. I think I will probably end up doing it though. Yesterday I ran 7.25 miles, with the first 5 miles at 8:44 pace, and the next mile at 7:47 pace and then a cool down 1.25 mile at 10:00 pace. I was TIRED after that. I haven’t done speed work in so long and pushing myself that hard was tough, but I felt good getting in some speed work. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I will be posting the Adoption April Q&A’s on Monday and my Garmin Review on Tuesday! Good luck to all those racing this weekend, kick some serious butt!

    I’m wondering about ice baths… I always feel soooo stiff after a long run (10 miles +). Obviously you sit in a bathtub full of ice, but for how long?? And does it help??

    Way to go on that speedwork. That takes some serious dedication. I’m terrible at speedwork…maybe because I never do it. And I never do it because I’m terrible at it…and the cycle continues. Way to’re awesome!

    When I do my ice dunks for a while I was treating myself to 15 minute clips of “Running the Sahara.” I’ve since watched the whole thing from my warm bed and am not sure how I’ll survive the ice anymore!

    I cannot seem to find your e-mail but I have two questions! Could you email me or do a post on the purpose of shot bloks and ice baths? I am new to long distance running and am training for my first half marathon. I love running but there are many things I would like to learn to enhance my performance! I didn’t know there were so many resources out there for runners! Anyway, if you wouldn’t mind- my email is:
