VLAAAAWG

As far as fitness my calf has been the big question mark all week.  It has been a touch strained and is on my mind going into the Bolder Boulder 10K in the morning.  I really see the value in a calf compression sleeve right now and will be wearing capris for this reason. My time won’t be awesome and I know I will have to walk some of it if my calf gets wonky so I’ll just have fun.  I just feel like this is putting more pressure on myself to kick butt at the 1/2 marathon in October.  I am doing more events in between but that 1/2 is a big goal race for me for time, etc.

This week’s schedule is seriously random.  Memorial Day 10K then I fly out on Friday to Austin to teach a yoga class almost as soon as I land for Fitcation.  I am helping a friend out and will pretty much teach two classes almost as soon as  I land back here in Colorado on Monday as well.

I am staying an extra day in Austin to catch some sun, photo walk, see the bats, and check out Daily Juice which came super highly recommended form a yoga client.  I do love raw food.  Do you have any other Austin recommendations?

Meal planning will be odd this week too…

MONDAY – Ethiopian post race and turkey meatballs with salad for dinner

TUESDAY -legumes and brown rice dish for dinner

WEDNESDAY – big ass salad for dinner with grilled chicken or fish

THURSDAY- midwife potluck for lunch + veggie lasagna for dinner

And please do check out the new family portrait we shot today at Mud Lake 😉

Have a great week and note I do have a giveaway going on my blog right now for a free ticket to the Fitness and Health Bloggers Conference here in Boulder in June.

  5. Love the Vlogs! My husband was probably transported there in his sleep as I was listening. It has been so long since I heard frogs. Good luck with your race and all the class teaching at fitcation. Super excited to meet you.

    So Glad you are staying the extra night. Now I want a smoothie, lol! I am so tempted by food right now.

    Great photo 🙂

  6. Love the peep frogs 🙂 And LOVE your joyful photo!

  7. Your family is just too precious!
    I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it, but I admire you so much! Your ambition, drive and radiant outlook are infectious, and I’m sure you’re going to kick this 10K’s butt, wonky calf or not. 🙂

  8. With a 10k on your plate, I think you’re allowed to be a bit random! 🙂 I love the new family pic and all of the yoga teaching sounds so exciting. Enjoy Fitcation!

  9. LOVE!!!!! The compression sleeves. They will do wonders for you. Hey just finish. That’s all that matters right? That’s what I keep telling myself as I head into this 10K in 2 weeks.

  10. You are so inspiring! Good luck with the travels, the race and the teachings! I don’t know how you do it all but you are a do’er!

  11. What a cool family pic and I’m jealous of how gorgeous the lake is! I’ll bet it isn’t a humid 90 degrees in CO either. Guess you’ll get a taste of that in TX. Have a great time!
