Gardening, Workouts…etc

I was thinking of my friend & fellow blogger Holly today as I set out on the track for a run. She recently wrote about how foreign it was to many of her friends that she wasn’t training for anything in particular, had no big races planned (& she’s done a lot of extreme sporting)*warm smile*. I love exercising with no goal in mind. I’ve often laughed since having Ivy that there is no sense planning a workout. Ivy’s mood largely dictates how long my workout will be, my energy levels vary vastly depending on how well I sleep, & I can never remember to time myself or remember exactly how many laps I’ve run. I do know I ran extra ones today though because a Dad I was about to pass picked up his pace to run a couple laps with me. Proud father of twins (+ a 5 year-old) had a few good stories for me. Which led me to run a couple extra laps to carry on the conversation.
I have to recognize that my posts largely revolve around my daughter (I’m finding it awfully hard to motivate myself to write when there are so many things I also enjoy doing (or have to do) when Ivy naps – reading, enjoying some sun on the deck, doing the dishes, a load of laundry…). I am still horribly proud of my garden though & have harvested my first tomato- yeah! Cilantro & mint harvests have gone by without note. oops. Peas, string beans & potatoes soon to come I think. Things are looking really good after beautiful warm summer days & some good storms.


Also, some recent photos of my little love. Her first shoulder ride.
