Three Things Thursday

1.  I really enjoyed putting together my WIAW post from yesterday.  In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I’m photographing my eats again today to do another WIAW next week.  Except I ate half my breakfast before I remembered so my first photo is of only half a bagel thin that already had a bite missing from it.  Speaking of food … last night I made a really yummy vegetarian stew that I found in Runners World.  It was quick, easy, and #healthyonabudget.  I will definitely be sharing the recipe soon :)

2.  I enjoyed spin class so much last week that I went again this week.  Except class was changed from “spin” to “spin boot camp”.  The class combined cardio on the spin bike with weight training.  It was still really great and I really enjoyed it but I was so sore yesterday!  That was the first time I’ve used weights since before my injury.  Today I am feeling much better and I’m anxious to get out for a run this morning.  And to go back to that class again next week :)

3.  I’ve got a 5k this weekend.  I’m really excited because it will be the first race I’ll get to “run” in since my injury.  {I walked two 5ks after my injury last fall.}  This 5k is the first in the four part fun run series that our local running store, The Running Zone, puts on each year.  I’ve only got one goal --- to finish.  Well, that, and to not push too hard.  I’m definitely not going for a PR and I just want to enjoy every step.

3 turkeys Since its Three Things Thursday here’s a random photo of three wild turkeys we saw wandering around our court last week.

Got any randomness you’d like to share today?

What are your weekend plans?  Any races?

Spin absolutely terrifies me.

So do wild turkey's. They are freaking enormous.

I have never done a spin class, i would like to someday.

Good luck with your 5k!

It's funny that Canadian geese scare the bejeezus out of me, but wild turkeys are fine. Maybe it's all about where you grew up!
