Today, I went running with my friend Jessica, and I was so proud of my progress! Jessica has been a great running coach and very patient with me as I have jogged along with her. You may remember, I did my first 5K in March, in which I ran/walked at a slow 39 minutes for 3 miles. Today, Jess estimates that we were doing 12 minute miles. I ran 1.5 miles without stopping! Then, I walked 1/2 a mile. Then, I ran another mile without stopping for a total of 3 miles, 2.5 of which I ran straight though. Yeah! I am going to start investigating 5Ks today and see if I can find one to do in Austin with Bren. I am going to miss working out with Jessica, we run, weight train, and then she makes me a delicious smoothie!
If you are interested in learning more about running, there is a good beginner's plan here. Though I haven't used that, I do set goals to reach (last week I ran over a mile without stopping, and this week, I wanted to go further).

Well, now I just need to apply my mindset to packing. Moving is such a project. Lola and Zoe are enjoying playing in all the boxes though. I want to share a couple more things before I sign out:
Last night, Brendan and I enjoyed a dinner at Sakura here in Lake Charles. For $16.99, you get an unlimited sushi buffet. In the past year, I have learned to LOVE sushi. Anyway, it's totally delicious, they have yummy desserts *fruit, creme brule, and Chinese food too (though I just stuck to sushi). The atmosphere is really nice. Stop by and give it a try if you are hungry for sushi! Do not miss the Godzilla and Dragon rolls. Yum! I am willing to eat fish when it involves sushi, though my diet is still primarily Vegetarian, I have my Pesacaterian moments now and then.
I wanted to share, the title of my last post is also the name of a movie we rented a couple of weeks ago (that's why the phrase was in my head).
This movie is a thriller/mystery and is really entertaining and great. It freaked me out though, watch with a friend! Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst are perfect in their roles.
Well, on my list today, packing and more reading from my ambitious Summer Reading list
|I'm loving this book!|
Here's to doing things! Happy Sunday!
