I’ve been so focused on finishing my quilting project that I forgot to post about my last few runs. Since the Half a few weeks ago, I’ve been a little lax in following my normal running plan (run 2x during the week with a long run on the weekend). That said I only have 3 runs to post:
Sat May 23:
K came over to my house and we ran 4 miles around my neighborhood. There may be a few hills but the tree lined streets offer a lot of shade! I forgot to wear my Garmin so I only have the C25K stats…once again it calculated a few extra tenths, not sure what I’m going to do about that but I like having the 3:1 cues so I may just deal with it
Sat May 30:
K was out of town so L came over my house and we ran 4 miles around my neighborhood, I wore my Garmin this time! We got a bit of a late start so we had to deal with a little more heat…during miles 3 & 4 we were running one tenth then walking one tenth.
Mon June 1:
I got out there this morning for a quick 30 min run. I wanted to try out some new music I downloaded that was specifically 150 BPM…unfortunately it was a little too slow for running but it still seems to have had a positive impact on my time 😀 I’ve downloaded a different track at 165 BPM and will try that out on Wed.
And now for my new quilting project:
I had a request from a friend to make a baby blanket for some expectant parents. They already know it will be a girl so I get to play with a bunch of pretty pink fabrics. I found this cute little ‘chick-a-dee’ fabric and then bought the pinks to coordinate. I cut out several 6″ squares from each fabric and made 9 patches…then I cut them to make the Disappearing 9 Patch pattern. Now I just have decide if I like the way I’ve laid them out.
All opinions are welcome…in fact, I implore you to let me know what you think. Before piecing together it measures 33×52, I’m thinking of putting on a border of light yellow polka dot (left over from my last project) to tone down the pink. I’d like to use flannel or minky for the backing and they’ve asked for a shade of lavender – ha, that won’t be hard to find!
That’s all for now…G’night
