The weekend is almost here but before this week is over I have four things I really need to tell you about.
The first thing is the thing I’m most excited to tell you about and I’ll go into more details next week but I’ve coming up with a year-long training plan that you guys can follow along with. Yes, I said year-long because I’m breaking it down into seasons and there will be challenges for every seasons and cool stuff, really.
It will look something like this….
Spring – Strength training, time to get strong
Summer – Speed training, Hills and fartleks here I come.
Fall – Further, bring on the distance baby!
Winter – Winning! Time to try for a PR or distance goal, or both? 😉
Stay tuned for more about the whole year-long thing.
Next I’ve got more of a public service announcement for pet owners. Y’all sock away your pennies just in case, cause veterinarian dentistry is expensive! I brush Hanks teeth daily and I feed him only dry, hard dog food. Still, he managed to build up some decay so I had to schedule a yearly cleaning for him. I just scheduled one for the kid and with insurance it was 30 bucks so I figured with no insurance and Hank being a dog, it would be around 75-100 bucks.
Um, no. Four Benjamins y’all! $400 freakin dollars and that was cheaper than all the other vets around us because in order to get all that tarter off the back teeth they’re gonna have to knock his butt out.
Oh, and he needs x-rays because he has a broken tooth! Jeez. The good news is that Hank doesn’t mind the vet, he loves all the attention. The only thing he doesn’t like is when I pay attention to the other dogs there.
I can’t help it. I’ve got a soft spot for sick dogs and I just feel the need to give them a little extra attention. Of course when I come back over to Hank, he’s all pouty and refuses to look at me.
And since we’re on the subject of animals, I have got to tell you about Rambo. Rambo is a 6 foot alligator who sleeps in the same bed with his HUMAN momma. He wears clothes, rides an ATV and even gives kisses. KISSES!
Oddly enough the woman is from Florida….(that’s sarcasm y’all). Did I mention Rambo is six feet long? Read more here.
Last thing is the one thing I thought I would never really enjoy, yoga. I’ve been doing these easy little Youtube yoga sessions and they are changing my life. It’s really helping my back pain and it’s geared toward those with scoliosis. This one is by far my favorite.
You know what the best part is? I can do that yoga workout and a gazillion other ones on Youtube all from the comfort of my Om sweet Om. (See what I did there?)
Tell me something about your week, anything…
