Friday five...

I haven't done a Friday post in FOREVER!  Here's my five for Friday...

1)  These workouts:
I was doing these very regularly right up until I went on vacation - then between vacay and Ragnar relay, I have kind of fallen off the wagon for the last two weeks.  I'm on the 3rd month, workouts 9 and 10.  They are definitely tough, and I'm liking them! This week I'm trying to get back in the swing of things and I'll do a post on what each workout consists as I did here and here for workouts 1-4.

2)  Yesterday my 5 year old daughter's friend asked me if I was my daughter's mommy, to which I replied yes...and to which she replied, "oh, I thought you were her grandma...because you look old".  Thanks sweetie...no more play dates for you!  Then to rub salt in the wound later that day, my son told me that my stomach is kind of round and it looked like I "could be a little bit pregnant".  So there ya go, apparently I look like a little bit pregnant Grandma.  Just in case I was starting to get a big head, these guys will keep my ego firmly in check.

3)  On Tuesday I got to spend time with one of my favorite people, my nephew Orion who is visiting from New York.
Isn't my nephew handsome? And tall?
He just got back from an Outward Bound adventure, and wants to stay in shape, so I showed him a nice running path by his mom's house.  We met up on Tuesday morning (8am...super early for a 16 year old, super late for me!) and ran an out and back.  My Garmin died, so I did what I thought would be a little over 3 miles - but turned out to be 4.5.  Woops!  He did great though and I had a great time running and spending some time with him.  I love sharing running with others and it's even better to share it with someone I love so much!

4)  So far with my foot recovery the longest I've run is 10 miles but this weekend I'll be pushing to 11.  My new target is 13.1 - need to start looking into half marathons again!  Woot!  My foot feels really good even after pushing it at the Ragnar relay this weekend (recap of that still in the works), so I'm really pleased with how it's all going.

5)  The Olympics are starting!  What are your favorite events?  Last year I really got into the swimming - mostly because of Michael Phelps and his 8 golds - but this year I might have a new interest...
hello there Mr. Lochte  ( source )
I really don't care if he even medals...I'll definitely be watching! :)

Speaking of the swim team, and saw this and it just made me giggle.  The US Olympic Swim team made a video lip synching the song "Call me Maybe".  It's fun to see these serious athletes goofing off and showing their personalities.


Hope you all have a great weekend!  Head over to Fitness, Health and Happiness for Fitness Friday!

I LOVE that video! I LOVE watching the Olympics and am so excited for the next two weeks! (Why does that song lend itself to lipsynching so well?? Have you seen the Obama one??)

Glad to hear your foot is well.

Can't wait to read your Ragnar recap, I just ran it too and had a blast. What legs did you run?

You crack me up... you definitely don't look like a pregnant grandma! I have those days in my cycle where I look pregnant, whether I exercise or not, eat well or not, that bloating day (or two) drives me nuts. Congrats on aiming for 13.1 again!

I had not seen that video yet! No idea where these kids are getting the pregnant grandma thing from. You look great!

We can form a team of pregnant-looking grandma-ish women. We can call ourselves "Still seeing babes when we look in the mirror" cuz we are still hot :)
