1. I gave hubby an early Father's Day present that I ordered from Retro Image Apparel. It's a company that was found it Seattle, WA (Retro) with a sister company (Micro Beer Jersey) in Portland, OR. Their inspiration came from the 1923 Bauhaus Exhibition poster. Their first products were tees, aprons, baby wear that featured imprinted vintage poster media...and now they manufacture mainly cycling jerseys for men and women. Check them out HERE and they have excellent customer service --- thanks, Ann!
2. We had a huge thunderstorm last night. I was asleep and I thought I was dreaming but it was real. Poor Smallsie, was a little on the edge but we made sure he was in a safe and comforting spot ---- underneath our covers, of course.
3. Dinner last night was Cashew Chicken with Broccoli (less the cashews). We had it over rice, too.
4. For dessert, I had a frozen yogurt (literally) -- I saw this idea somewhere in the blogosphere and I thought I'd try it...Verdict: It was ok, but nothing compared to a "real" frozen yogurt like my favorite.
5. I had my physical exam yesterday and I know I'm getting old when I can't read the bottom of the Eye chart.
....can't wait to find out my cholesterol level, too.
6. I'm 17 days into the Running Streak -- so far, so good. I did 6 miles this morning and Smalls had a lot of *salty* licking afterwards.
7. I found this article online and though it was interesting.
A recent study presented at the American College of Sports Medicine annual meeting has found that when it comes to your health, you may be better off going for a more moderate pace and number of miles.
The study looked at 30 years of health records for about 14,000 people who identified as runners (from a larger pool of 52,000 people) and found that those who reported that they ran from one to 20 miles a week at a jogging pace — 10 or 11 minutes per mile — had a lower risk of dying than those who didn't run at all or those who ran much faster — around 8.5 minutes per mile — or who ran more than 20 miles a week.
Studies have previously shown that jogging can help you live a longer life, and this newest finding is a great reminder that more isn't always better. Of course, beating your pace or mileage is more than about health — it's also about beating your personal bests!
How many miles a week do you run? Suddenly, I don't feel so envious of all the other *fast* runners out there ☺.
