Week One

So, I updated my blog and I stole the idea from my sister. Sorry! I just thought her makeover was too cute!

Speaking of my sister, Anna joined a running group with some girls from the school where she works. She told my mom all about it who then wanted to join, but...needed a partner. Hmmm, guess who her partner! Although it doesn't sound like it, I am extremely excited about this new challenge. I have always wanted to be a "runner," but I haven't exercised seriously since I got out of college (and I only dabbled in exercise then). I am thrilled to have a program to follow and some guides to lead us on this journey.

How has week one of the program gone? Whew! It's been difficult, but rewarding. We meet on Saturday mornings and run. So, this past Saturday, I met the group and we ran in intervals (walk 3 minutes, run 1 minute) until we completed a mile. I followed the same routine Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Monday and Friday are off days and today is a cross-train day (anything aerobic except running). I feel pretty good about my accomplishment and I even upped the running time to 1.5 minutes last night to prepare for this Saturday's increase. We will walk 3 minutes and run 2 and add a quarter of a mile. Oh me, I am "trippin," as my mom would say.

At the almost end of week one: sore, but feeling good!

Stay tuned!

Storm damage

That "severe" thunderstorm that blew in Monday night left some severe damage to Clint's truck!

How's that for a fun-filled evening? Since our house is basically a refurbished barn, we went over to my grandparents house to escape the wrath that might occur at home. We never expected it to be worse at their house and NO damage at ours. Thankfully, the only damage was to Clint's truck and their yard, no house repairs. Praise the Lord!

Wordless Wednesday

Edited to add: Has anyone even noticed the extremely muddy water in the pool? I just knew somebody would comment. Here's what he was doing before he took his swim:
