Happy Valentine’s Day from Minnesota!
I know, I know. You can’t escape the references anywhere, can you?
Early this morning I opted to put pork ribs and sauerkraut in the crockpot. I didn’t specifically think about what day it was.
So I’m fairly certain that all of you, single, married, or otherwise, will be having a more romantic meal than us tonight.
Maybe I can find a wine to pair with kraut? 🙂
In other news, we’ve had one baby girl born so far today. She was already dry, fluffy, and nestled into a jacket when I saw her this morning.
My real Valentine cow though, is this girl…
Sugar, the cow.
We spent a little quality time together as she sat backward in her stall, which she always does.
Please ignore my Rudolph-colored nose. From November – April my nose seems to run like a faucet no matter what I do to avert it.
Circuit training tales would be a more appropriate title today. My bootcamp class is on break for February, and this morning I decided I’d give the 6 a.m. circuit training a try.
I sometimes feel like I’m “wasting” a running day by doing a class, but I know that’s silly. Serious strength and core work is rather lacking in my exercise life, and this class gave plenty of both.
Actually. It kicked my butt.
You’d think I’d have a strong lower half as a runner, but my hamstrings, quads (and back and arms) are all telling me they’re going to be sore tomorrow.
I suppose that means tomorrow will be a rest or easy day, and I can tackle some speedier stuff on Thursday.
I did do a cool down run after class got over, and it’s amazing how easy – even comforting – the treadmill can feel after a hard and unfamiliar effort.
“Comfort” and “treadmill” in the same sentence… who would have thought?
Hope you all have a great evening. Enjoy those chocolates or wine or both. No matter if you are like me and picked up your own chocolates. 🙂
