WTF Wednesday!

Yesterday and this morning I ran 5 miles. So far my total for the week is 16. I feel pretty good about that and my speed hasn’t been that bad either. I also ran without music this morning, not because I wanted to, but because I was listening to my slacker app and slacker decided to slack off and not work. Stupid app.

I'm a slacker and so is my app
I took the dogs out for their walk this morning and as usual we had to find a chain link fence so that Hank could poop through it. He’s such a weird little dog. After he poops through the fence he does this thing where he kicks out his hind legs and tries to bury the poop. He can kick dirt at least 8 – 10 feet back so I try not to stand behind him when he goes all ‘diggie smalls’ on me. Unfortunately, this morning, I was right behind him and he kicked the dirt up in my face. I have got to teach him a new trick, I’m thinking something like this:

awesome dog trickOh, dear God, she’s back. Joanna Rohrback, you little vixen. Joanna has been providing me with fabulous fodder for this blog since she released that first prancercise video and once again, she’s back.

Prancercise people!
Please enjoy this fabulous video and I hope you especially enjoy the scene where the horse takes a massive shit because who would bother to actually edit that out? It’s at about the 3:30 mark in case you were curious. God, I love this woman. Please never stop making videos Joanna, just please.


And don’t forget to visit my friend Smitha’s blog for some serious giveaways! She’s got 20 giveaways by several bloggers all on her blog. So since she’s already done the leg work all you have to do is go enter to win! Great idea, isn’t it?

I wish I would have thought of it but I’ve been busy thinking up new dog tricks for Hank and watching prancercise videos.

And finally, RIP Robin Williams, I’d like to think you’re laughing with the angels now.


Do you find the prancercise lady as hilarious as I do?

Does your pet have a special trick that he or she does?

The Friday Five & Happy Birthday Mom

Hello, happy Friday.

Today is my Mom’s birthday. I’d like to say, Happy birthday Mom! I love you and I hope you have a super special, extraordinary day, because you deserve it.

Happy Birthday Mom

And here are my Five things you don’t necessarily need to know on Friday…

Yesterday I ran 4 miles including speed work. I took today off. I have a 14 miler planned for tomorrow so wish me luck. I’m actually looking forward to it.

I broke down and gave into my inner shoe desires yesterday…

I got the new Mizuno Wave Sayonara’s. This doesn’t mean that I don’t love my Brooks Pure Flow 2’s with all my heart (all three pairs), it just means, I needed the Mizuno’s (see, I run for the shoes).

Yesterday I ate an entire watermelon all by myself. And because a balanced diet also requires protein, I followed it up with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. I can now die happy.


MacGyver and I went to our favorite Cuban Restaurant for lunch today, La Teresita. It is always delish but the best part is the fried ice cream which is coated with corn flakes, raisins, and topped with chocolate. Then they put it in a fried tortilla and drizzle honey on top. It is the most impressive dessert ever, really, ever!

I really, really want to go to yoga after running in the morning, but they don’t offer Yoga on the Beach here like they do in Venice, and that’s really what I enjoy the most. I have looked into all the alternatives available in my area and since my time is limited and I don’t really want to drive very far, or anywhere for that matter, I’ve decided I’ll have to resort to Prancercise….it’s springy and rhythmic!

Hope ya’ll have a fantastic Friday, now stop talkin and do some walkin, Cut the noose and let it loose, It’s better to be punching into space than in your face, get out there and have some fun!

Do you have a long run planned for this weekend? Have you ever eaten an entire watermelon by yourself?
