So, I should be a little more forthcoming about my "run" training. Yeah, it's more like jogging. I can't imagine building to an actual run, but I guess time will tell. Yesterday I could feel my muscles getting tighter and tighter and throughout the night I woke up several times to roll over. BUT, I got up and did it all over again. I actually made it ten minutes of straight jogging between my walking, which is an improvement over my 5 minutes yesterday. Some of you have asked for the training link: http://www.halhigdon.com:80/10ktraining/10knovice.htm. Building up to thirty minutes of straight running is the starting point of the training program, so I'll let you know when I get there :)
An now, drum roll please, the weekly Bachelor report. Last night I picked up Dave and Mike and Erin and headed over to Stacy's to view our weekly dose of trashy TV (or, at least, a portion of it.) Whoever said Family Home Evening is too hard, even with older kids, I say you have to find the right medium, cuz we had no problem gathering together. I have to say Andy is losing favor in my eyes. I don't know if it's the pressure of the cameras or what, but these people make the dumbest comments and have the most awkard interactions on national television. Here are my favorites from last night:
Bevin's reaction to Andy's childhood "nerd" dream of becoming an astraunaut. I can't remember exactly how she said it, and I left my notes in the car (yeah, I took notes) but shortly thereafter she strattles Andy and asks if he wants to give her a check-up. Seriously. On national television? Does the woman have any self respect? Is that a rhetorical question considering her willingness to be on the show. Yeah, Bevin has lost favor with me, too. Too much whining and pissy-ness.
Stephanie South Carolina is a trip. Or, shall I say, was. Kinda glad she was not given the rose. I don't know if it was her disturbing emotional reaction to the "most incredible view" of Tahoe, her uncomfortably placed boobs (like, they make me uncomfortable as they hang half-way out of most of her dresses in a most unnatural way), or her pompous attitude, "I am 94% sure I am getting a rose." Yeah, that was a big 6 %. And her evil "I hope he's happy" after her boot-off was pretty classic.
I will give Andy credit for kicking off the pot stirrers. Kate and Steph SC were too ugly with the other girls. Nicole, though, got the shaft and it wasn't her fault, so the breakdown of tears was unneccessary. Remember as wise said, "Jealousy is a rampant beast." Ahh, good stuff. Daniel and Julina you can't resist the invite to come next week. Erin's doing treats and Daniel's got the opening prayer.
Gotta go referee with my kids and get breakfast going. Have a great day!
