To start with, I had to take my car to the dealership on Monday for them to look at something it's doing, and of course it wouldn't do it. I'm beyond frustrated and am looking at trading it in for a new car. It's 7 years old, and not even at 60K yet. I have 3 models in mind, all crossovers. My mom keeps saying she wishes I lived closer to her and my dad since they moved to Colorado 2 years ago, so to keep my options open, I want all-wheel drive. I'll need that if I ever move up there because hello, snow! AWD would be nice to have in Dallas too because the concrete roads can get rather slick after it's rained.
On Tuesday, my PT said after we finish up this week, I can go down to one PT session a week! I'm very happy to hear that. Of course I'll be doing all kinds of PT exercises at home. I keep getting more and more, and with my workout DVDs on top of PT, plus Pure Barre, I can get some pretty good strength training sessions in. I've been soaking up everything she's teaching me, and I want to order at least 1, if not 2 more Pure Barre DVDs for the summer.
Tuesday I also joined the Oiselle Volee! Ever since Oiselle piqued my interest last year, I'd been reading about bloggers writing about the Volee and meeting up with team members at races, which of course lead me to reading about the Volee on Oiselle's website. The mission struck a cord with me, and I signed up for email notices for the next window of opportunity. I can't wait for my goodies to get here, which they said will be in 6 weeks, so I have plenty of time to do Tink and get back home.
My knee brace/sleeve arrived on Thursday. I wore it at PT on Friday, and when I biked for my cross-training on Friday as well. I biked last week on Friday before my 4 miles, and I felt my legs were loose when I woke up, so I gave it another try. I'd really like to put my feet up on Fridays, but the fitness room was quiet, and I should do a little more cross-training cardio in my normal schedule. The past two weekends I've done 4 miles or a little over, so the Friday biking might be helping. I wonder what I can do at Disneyland to replicate that before the race.
Finally, after a busy Saturday of my last long run, test driving the CRV, and an allergy attack, I was craving Tex Mex. This is what happens when my friends start posting Tex Mex to social media. Not fair! They didn't even have to peer pressure me, my brain started craving Tex Mex. I tried to go a healthier option, ie no cheese, but I still had sopapillas. I don't regret a thing.
