A 90 bpm Running Playlist, and Other Random Bits
A bit of a random summary today:
No run yesterday. My body decided to have GI issues instead.
Went to the hockey parents’ social I mentioned earlier and had so much fun, even though we left around 10:45pm. My husband was going to go back solo after we dropped off the babysitter, but we both ended up nodding off on the couch while watching The Mummy Returns.
Went for a 4.5k (or so) run today and kept it at as easy a pace as I could. My Garmin’s batteries died around 3.75k, though, and then for some reason I couldn’t upload this workout or the past few workouts to my computer. Not sure what was going on there, but I’m done trying to figure it out.
Ate too much chocolate today, including some Lindt dark chocolate with sea salt.
My abs are so sore from yesterday’s iTrain workout! And so are a few other body parts. I’m actually surprised by this because I didn’t think the workout was that intense. I guess that’s a good thing, right?
Added some songs to my running playlist. I have a collection of tracks in the 90 bpm range and am working on my running cadence by striding to the beat. In case you’re interested, here’s the list:

Have had an achy throat yesterday and today. Almost feels like the lump in your throat you get when you’re going to cry. Hope I’m not getting sick, but wouldn’t be surprised if I did considering all the viruses going around at school
My daughter went over to a friend’s today for her first official playdate. The girls had a blast and we had time to ourselves. Looking forward to more playdates in the future!
My son’s birthday is on April 6th and I haven’t planned a party yet. Er, bit of a bad mom moment there, I guess. I have warned him that the party with his friends might not happen until after finals, so that we can put some decent effort into planning the event. He’s changed his mind from wanting a Bakugan party to an Indiana Jones party, which I am ALL OVER. Love Indy! Am going to see if we can book into the zoo for a reptile educational session – lots of snakes and bugs in the Indiana Jones movies, in case you aren’t familiar – and then hopefully there’s a facility there we can rent so we can do the cake thing. I’m thinking of rubber snakes and spiders as decorations and party favours, and tri-color cake pops a la Bakerella (except in brown, orange, and yellow) as snacks. Gummy snakes and bugs are probably a necessity, too. And maybe some chilled monkey brains or eyeball soup? :)
Signing off and heading to bed. Lots of studying coming this week and I’m not looking forward to it. At least there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
Did you have themed birthday parties when you were younger? What was your favourite? I had a Holly Hobbie cake I really liked once, but otherwise no specific themes I can remember.
