Cause that ain't happening.
It's been a busy'ish week - what with locking down our credit report and such. Aah the annoying realities of living in a world where someone can get all of your information electronically in about 4 seconds. But it's not as bad as it could be.
I do have things to talk about though so let's catch up.
Awesome give away at Marcia's blog. Bluetooth headphones?! Sign me up!
There's a new trail in town. It's been open for 3 or 4 months but last weekend was the first time we went to it. It's actually easier for me to get to than other parts of the Greenway but it isn't as long (about 1.3 miles) and has a lot of steep hills. So for walks or if I ever want to do hill repeats this is a great option. And it's gorgeous. The first time we went I ran the downhills and the relatively flat spots. The second time we just walked.

Here are some pics I took.
I have a new flare up of an old problem. I think it's nerve damage or aggravation. I've had issues with sciatica before but my best guess for this is that it's the pudendal nerve because my while hip is sore the real pain flares into my groin area and not down into my leg. This was a huge issue in my second pregnancy from about month 3 through the end. Not to be crude but it's like someone is stabbing you with a knife in the "who-ha" all day long. It hasn't impacted me as far as not being able to exercise but I think the class I did on Monday was what made it angry and flare up again. The exercises we did weren't hard but the pace was super quick and I probably sacrificed correct form somewhere along the way.
Hooray for cheap Chinese goods! Well, kind of hooray.
In early February my friend (who's going on the cruise with me) told me about a website she found with cheap but cute swimsuits. She ordered 3 or 4 thinking that even if they were also cheaply made it wasn't a big loss of money. So I went on the site as well and was amazed at the designs and options. And they were cheap - like $15-25 each. So I found two and ordered them as well:

It was in the mid 70's yesterday and now they're calling for light snow this weekend. I hate spring so much. And since it's spring break for the university the rec center will be closed this weekend. So not much running for me. I'll try to get to Zumba at least if I can wake up enough on Saturday morning. Sunday may end up being a crap shoot for exercising.
