Nahh, just kidding. I don’t think I have 57 things to share, but maybe?
1) Today I passed my NCE (National Counselor Exam)!! Hallelujah! This is a big deal!! I have been putting this thing off for a while then when I finally registered for it I ended up rescheduling it. Then on the rescheduled date it got cancelled because of snow and ice. So this has been hanging over my head like a stupid anvil for WAY too long and today I passed!
2). I am drowning in a sea of wild training plans!! Holy moly! Half Iron training is ridiculous! I work on my plan then have to start over. Part of the problem is that I have a half marathon in March. I would like to do well, like PR (<1:55). But I don’t think I have the time to commit to that sort of PR training with all the swimming and biking that I must do as well. So I am trying to finagle it so that I can do my 5 or 6 days a week of running and speed work plus the bike/swim. But I know this could be trouble. Over training and injury are serious possibilities right now. I don’t want to risk that.
3). With my test being today I took the day off from training. Oh wait, no I didn’t. I spent 15 min sitting on my bike in the door way practicing putting my feet in and taking them out of my clip-in peddles. Oh man, what a work out. I was sweating like a hog. Ok, total exaggeration, I didn’t even get winded.
4). The shake weight rocks. No really. Dec. 29th was my friend Christina’s birthday. So naturally when she came over on New Year’s Eve I had to present her with a birthday present and this is what she got:
It is a strange piece of equipment and kind of weird and humiliating to purchase, but lemme tell you…OUCH! I did it for one minute and my arms were burning. I am considering getting one for myself!
5). Passing a HUGE exam compelled The Hubs to make dinner!! Score!
6). Swimming makes my skin itchy and tight.
7). My hair is always, ALWAYS greasy! What is up with that? I try to not wash it so often but it just gets worse and worse. I washed it after my swim on Tuesday and today, it looks like a stinking grease ball. What helps this stupid problem? What can be done!?
8). The names for my beautiful bike are entertaining. I thought of a name today that I really, reallllly like. I hope someone suggests it so they can win! But that doesn’t mean I wont like one of the suggested names better. Want a chance to win some Yurbuds or a 50% off coupon to Optic Nerve? Click HERE and help me name my bike!
Not quite 57 things, what do you have to randomly share on this fine Thursday?
