Friday four, Season training, teeth, gators and yoga.

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.


Unfortunately it’s not this cool because let’s face it, this would be awesome.

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.

We don’t need no stinkin dentist!

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!

Look at that sweet face....

Look at that sweet face….or not.

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…

  1. Oh goodie. So pleased to hear you yoging. Keep planking too….

    And your year long training plan sounds bitchen!!!! you go gurl!

  2. Hills and speed training in the summer? Seems hard?

    Wow your vet dental is pricier than here. But not my much. I pay just over $300 and the sedation is the big cost.

    I like a modified pigeon pose to stretch my quads (because I also bring up the straight leg and grab my toes).

    Do you do the knee circle??

    Tomorrow….Viera and the space center.

    • It is hard but long runs in the summer are so much more difficult. I have a hard time with pigeon and I do the knee circle but I can’t do wide circles yet…notice I said yet. 🙂 Space Center sounds so fun! Have a great time. I’ll be doing lawn work, bah!

      • I do a very modified pigeon! Runner’s World puts out a yoga for runners DVD that I’ve been thinking about getting (the downside is…I’d have to hook up the TV and DVD player).

        The KSC was..okay. I liked the rocket garden and Atlantis. It was pretty buys…and too pricey. Wouldn’t go again for the price.

        I can’t wait for your year long plan. Maybe I will follow along!
