Three Things Thursday


  1. The week has been good in regards to balancing work and working out - it's been pretty calm at work and I have been following my schedule to a T with the workouts! In the past four days I have swam 3900 Yds, biked 18.05 miles, and ran 2.6 miles... did 30 minutes of pilates, almost an hour of stretching and foamrolling.... throw in a complete REST day yesterday and I am satisfied!

  2. I am trying to soak in as much of the Olympics as possible. Last night I tried to hard to stay away and watch Shaun White in the Halfpipe finals but just couldn't do it. Has anyone caught any of the men's or women's hockey? There are twins from Grand Forks, ND who are playing on team USA - Monique and Jocelyne Lamoureux. They are both Freshman at the University of North Dakota - my alma mater. If you get Sports Illustrated, you might have seen their family story in there - very interesting! On the USA Men's Hockey team, Zach Parise who currently plays for the New Jersey Devils, is a former UND hockey player as well. On Canada's Hockey team is Jonathan Toews, who is currently playing for the Chicago Blackhawks, and is a former UND hockey player. SIOUX players represent!! Woot woot!

  3. On a personal note - things have been kind of rocky the past couple days and I am not ready to share anything as I am on a emotional rollercoaster. Instead, I will leave you with some quotes...

"A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life." ~ Charles Darwin

"I Still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and the friends I want to see." ~ John Burroughs

"He who has faith has... an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness, and assuring trust that all will come out well - even though it may appear to come out most badly." B.C. Forbes

Oh man, I'm totally jealous of your week of workouts! You go girl!

Because of the move, I have not even watched 5 minutes of the Olympics and it feels just wrong. :P

Whatever is going on, know that I'm thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers. You are one strong chick so I know you'll handle whatever is thrown at you.

Holly said...

I think I've watched a total of five minutes of the Olympics. Can't seem to get into it this year.

Hope things get better for you real soon.
