Good stuff

Ran a good 8 miles this morning.  I feel some confidence coming back.  I hope I am back on the right track.  I have pretty bad shin splints this week.  I wonder if this is because I ran on the treadmill all week.  I am still looking for one...working on convincing my husband....


I have been testing bloglovin and feedly this week.  I think the best one is the bloglovin App.
It was super easy to upload all the blogs I am reading on Google Reader.
I like that I can comment on blogs without having to open a different window and come back to reading blogs.  I can mark the blogs I like that is also a nice option.
So I am now using this only.

Also I figured out how to insert pictures in a post while using the blogger App. I used it to write this post and it works!

My NCAA brackets have both exploded big time.  So many upsets so soon this year!  My beloved Duke are still alive and I hope it will last!!! I don't think anyone will beat Louisville not even Duke!



NUUN news:
The new flavored are now available.  Watermelon is my favorite...I like the other 2 but they don't like me...:(
I received my new singlet this week! I love it but I would like it to be a tiny bit longer...Bill said it right I guess "you are taller than the average runner"...right ...



My NUUN ambassador profile is up!



I took my kids to the Griffith Observatory this week.  I have been living here for 13 yrs and this was my first time going there.  It is a free museum and a planetarium.  The view of Los Angeles from there is beautiful!  We saw a documentary about life, water, the stars and the planets in the dome; the boys loved it.  And best part of this awesome place: it is FREE!!!

See the Hollywood sign behind me?

Awesome job! I plan to start back to running tomorrow morning. I have taken a little time off so I can go back to loving it. I found I was pushing myself so hard it stopped being fun but tomorrow will be my time and my run! No watch and rush,,,,just running! Erica

I liked watermelon too!

I really liked the watermelon, but I think that cherry limeade was my favorite!

Je suis tellement contente de lire tant de bonnes nouvelles! Quelle superbe semaine tu as eu :)

Le livre dont j'ai parlé s'intitule: La course à pied au féminin, par Sophie Allard. C'est bon et c'est récent...y'a plein de conseils, mais aussi des profiles de différentes femmes qui courent (elles sont très variées et intéressantes). Tu regarderas ça lorsque tu descenderas à Québec!

Glad to hear that things are pretty good. I wish I could sat the same. I also loving my watermelon Nuun and singlet! I am going to check out your ambassador profile right now. Congratulations!

OK, I just like the name Bloglovin that's awesome! But I also just heard Google Reader is going away....so I wonder what happens then?

Great job on the run, glad you are feeling back to yourself!

Cool about your Nuun Ambassador profile! Very cool!

Mine blew up last week, and now is even uglier now, that is what I love about March Madness

It is hard to believe we just have about 16 more games till the Stanley Cup Playoff

Nice 8!! I am also working on convincing my husband we need a treadmill. So far, he's not going for it, rude.

I love Griffith Observatory, but I don't think we've been there since we had #2. Oops?

I loved all those pics you had on Instagram from your trip!

I still need to try those new Nuun flavors. I have some sitting on my desk here at work that I drink through the day. I especially love the new singlet! Blue and white look great on you!

Sounds like a pretty good week, hope your shins feel better soon! try to stretch your calves, many times tight calves result in shin pain.

I wrote a whole response to you this morning from my phone about how I'm using BlogLovin and that it's great that you can comment with it. But, I guess that's not on the mobile version. Bummer.

I hope your shins feel better.

i switched me feed to feedly, but realized I rarely use it anymore. I find myself just clicking through people's comments, whoops! no wonder I miss out on stuff.

love trips to places like science museums!

Elizabeth said...

i love bloglovin! i also love the watermelon (and the other 2). what size is your singlet? mine's too big-maybe we could trade?

Giorgio said...

Great to hear that your kids enjoyed the documentary about environment. Awareness about water pollution and waste recycling is developed enough among new generation.

Glad you're improving your runs!
