The past few days....

Wednesday I went in for a haircut. Mind you, my hair was getting very long (middle of back), and with it being so heaving and thick, I had to get it chopped. I wanted it just long enough to still get in a low ponytail for when it's hot, working out, and when I am just too plain lazy to do it. And that is exactly what she did...and then some. Damn, it turned out shorter than I was envisioning. However, I figure it will be back to my shoulders by the time school starts back up.

Thursday night I didn't get to the cycle group ride. I actually did my bike workout earlier in the day as the forcast predicted rain. Sure enough, it ended up raining (briefly) while we would have been out on our bikes. Instead I opted to watch the Celtics and their unbelievable comeback (in hi-def) with a couple friends. That was an amazing game. Period.

Friday night a few of us went bowling and I was quite surprised to see how well I did considering there was no alchohol involved! I bowled 117 in the first game and 109 in the second. Anything above 100 is good for me!

Last night we had a nice little tornado warning here. I am extremely fascinated by weather, but as soon as it is too close for comfort, I am scared shitless. The sirens were going off like crazy and the black clouds outside my patio were rotating. Supposedly a funnel was located about 7 miles southwest of my apartment. I grabbed my purse, keys and shoes and joined a handful of other neighbors in the basement. Luckily nothing came of the storm and in less than a half hour the sun was shining. Ahhh.

The streaking lives on! I am actually enjoying this, because to be honest, I have been a bit bored with all the extra free time. I am not as productive as one would like to be with all my free time. Here's what the streak looks like 15 days into it....

Total days: 15 (12:19:45)
# of Swims: 5 (2:54:00)
# of Rides: 6 (3:52:00)

# of Turbo Sculpt Sessions: 1 (40:00)


It's another gloomy/rainy/cool day and I look forward to relaxing a bit; reading, watching the Twins, reading, and watching the 5th game of the NBA Finals. Do the Lakers even have a smidgen of a chance? Because I love a good playoff game, it would be fun to see the Laker's win tonight in Boston territory... plus it would probably make my Dad a happy camper! .... come on... it's Father's day people! Happy Father's Day, Dad! I hope you have a great day! Same goes for all the other father's out there as well.

Don't worry, once the finals are over, this blog will have a new look with new colors! :)

it's nice. Probably easier to take care of being an athlete and all ;)

Wes said...

I live in tornado alley here in Georgia. It's loads of fun :-) I like your hair cut!! I understand about keeping it at a good length though...

Kudos to you for training smart!! That's part of the key to being successful. Will you be getting a trainer by winter?

teacherwoman said...

It is on my birthday wish list! The trainer that is!

Your hair is cute.

I got mine chopped on Friday and it turned out shorter than I expected as well. But, I rather liked it when I was running yesterday and coming out of the pool this morning. I think it just takes some getting used to when you do something that seems a bit drastic. :)

Viv said...

The hair looks great!

Way to get the ridde in early before the storms.

Nicole said...

cute hair cut! it does suck when it ends up shorter than hoped though.

D10 said...

I like the cut. As long as I can pull it back from my face I am happy.

Rest up today, big game tonight. It would be nice for the Celtics to return to Boston for the win. However, I wouldn't mind a win tonight. Go Celtics!!

Kevin said...

Your hair looks good. Good job of planning ahead and getting your ride in before the rain

Danielle said...

I'm the same way with hair. Has to be long enough for a pony tail...and same way with bowling. If it's over 100 I'm ecstatic!!

Neese said...

the hair looks great! I'm so tempted lately to get a perm to have some curls!

Marcy said...

You ladies are making me itch to get my haircut now. First Lisa (Chasin Bunnies) and now you. I LOVE IT!! Looks great ;D

Blaine and Steph said...

I like the new do!

MissAllycat said...

So Cute! Make me want to cut off my hair...Hmmmmmmmm....I'll have to think about that. :)

Firefly's Running said...

I am glad that you are okay. Nice haircut!

Brianna said...

That is an amazing photo of the storm. Glad you stayed safe!

AddictedToEndorphins said...

WOW 15 days straight. I think I'm gonna try this 'streaking' business. Love the haircut!:) A headband works as well as a ponytail. They even sell them with little grippy things to hold them in place.

P.S. I actually went bowling last night--my high score was 88.
hahaha.

akshaye said...

Glad you were safe. And I do like that haircut!

I really thought they would pull it off yesterday. Oh well - at least they WILL win it at home now!

Jess said...

The hair cut looks great!

Stef said...

Very cute do!

Your mileage and motivation are looking great as well you are really rocking the workouts!

Glad those black clouds did not amount to anything that would be scary.

P.O.M. said...

The hair looks really cute. It's definately still long enough to do fun stuf with.

Sherry said...

I like your new haircut! It's really pretty. I chopped my near waist length hair off last December and haven't been in for a trim since! EEKS!!! I have scissor phobia. Have an appt. scheduled in early July; gonna cut again. It's just so much easier to maintain (and to straighten). :o)

Speaking of tornados, we get itty bitty ones down here now and then (NOTHING like y'all get). Last week while I was out shopping, a tornado warning was posting unbeknownst to me. So I'm driving home and I see the skies are pretty dark behind me, but I think nothing of it (typical FL summer T-storm) until I see a tornado in my rearview mirror! I was a good 5 minute drive at 60mph ahead of it, but man did I step on the gas!

M*J*C said...

Your haircut is totally cute! I'm all about getting it in the ponytail!

Ms. Math said...

I think the haircut looks great! Your curls are so pretty!

I know what you mean about having extra free time and not being productive with it!

Anne said...

I'd be scared shitless if that was the view from my house too. What a photo! The new 'do looks perfect for you. I'm jealous of your natural curls.
