1. Look at what I found when I took one of my hanging baskets down this morning to water my flowers:
I hadn’t watered it since last Friday (before we went out of town), and apparently that was enough time for a mama Robin to pick that spot to build her nest and lay her eggs. I still watered my flowers because I don’t want them to die, but I was really careful not to get any water on the eggs. I also put the basket back up on the hook exactly the way it was. Hopefully mama didn’t get scared off.
2. I decided to take a rest day from running today, and instead did a level 3 Jillian 30 day shred workout this evening after work. I’m hoping this will let the blisters on the bottom of my feet toughen up a bit so that I can run tomorrow. During level 3 there’s a part where she has you doing a minute of traditional sit ups. This is my view during that minute:
Scout likes to stand over me and lick my face each time I get to the top of my sit up. It makes me laugh, which I’m sure adds extra difficulty.
3. This evening I am making best friends with my foam roller and stick.
I am hoping to solve all the problems in my lower legs that arose after Saturday’s long run and rolling my ankles multiple times during that run. My achilles and ankles are still very tight, but getting better.
Have you ever had a bird make a nest near your house?
Do you use a foam roller or “The Stick” or something like them?
