Happy, Happy High Five Friday! I’m very excited about the weekend because it’s my birthday tomorrow! I’m planning on a run and yoga and cake and watching the NY Rangers game. #thisis38
Perfect timing for a little high five for Friday and the good stuff that happened this week. I’m linking up with Angela again for her High Five Friday series. Let’s start with Instagram – my five favorite photos from the week. Come follow me on IG here! 🙂
FIVE FROM INSTAGRAM
10 months! I can’t believe it. Baby T is just over 28 pounds now. His new favorite thing to do is maneuver himself under the couch. If you pop him down on the floor, it takes him less than a minute to get himself under there.
This 12 mile long run yesterday was not good. But runs that are no fun always make me think there’s a really amazing run in my future. Plus, there are now 12 quality miles under my belt for a long run. 3 weeks of marathon training down now and I’m happy next week is a little bit of a cut back week in training.
I got a new pair of thermal tights from Spandits and I’m in love! They’re so 70’s-tastic, aren’t they? I’m digging that I can matchy-match it up in aqua or purple, too.
And in case you missed my post on Wednesday, I am super psyched to be part of a group of 6 running bloggers bringing you a workout round-up every month! This month’s theme for the workouts was indoor sweat sessions, so next time you’re looking for something to get done in your living room, you’re all set!
FIVE LINKS I LOVED
I read this post from Heather of Relentless Forward Commotion and immediately wanted to hit the trails! Loved every moment of reading this, especially the intermission in the middle of the post where she just had pictures of her friends’ gorgeous trail runs.
The Science of Happiness: Why complaining is literally killing you, via Curious Apes. If this doesn’t transform the way you speak and think and phrase your words, it will definitely make you more cognizant of how you express yourself (and how those around you do, too).
Need a running community? Read Amanda’s post on finding your community online to strengthen running bonds. I’ve forged many strong friendships through the running community online. 🙂
Laura wrote about metabolic efficiency for runners – this is fascinating! I’m hoping she expands this into a webinar.
How Technology Makes It Easy to Flake Out (and How to Stop It), via Tiny Buddha. Does the immediacy of technology make it easier to commit to things without thinking, or make it easier to cancel at the last minute? Both. Here’s how to be more mindful about it.
FIVE AWESOME THINGS
24 times J.K. Rowling was a total badass on Twitter. I. LOVE. HER.
Alyssa Milano sticking up for breastfeeding normalization on the Wendy Williams show – YES! Seriously, this should be a non-issue. Here’s why Wendy thinks Alyssa should stop with the madness of feeding her child in public: “[Breasts are] more sexual than a feeding thing.” Are you kidding me?
BGB Community launched a website! This is a fabulous, supportive group of bloggers with an amazingly helpful Facebook group, so it’s exciting to see it expand online.
The Under Armour USA Gymnastics team commercial – just wow:
Turns out my Downton Abbey habit makes me way literary. Phew.
I’m linking up over at Happy Fit Mama for her weekly High Five Friday series. Head over there to read more posts like this – fun photos and good reads for your weekend.
How are you spending my birthday tomorrow? ha ha 😉
