Broken Wings

September 2, 2011

Right after we end triceps in Body Pump, Vanessa always says “Stretch those broken wings!”

My wings are broken! Class was particularly hard today on the upper body – but I kept it lighter on the lower since I’m running in the Charlottesville Women’s 4 Miler tomorrow morning!

Not too excited about getting up at 5 on a Saturday, but am excited about running in our city’s most famous race!

Recipage (and my friends Emily + Casey!) sent me their new branded shirt – “Original Content” with RECIpage on the back. It’s American Apparel – my torso has never felt a shirt so soft! <3 my Recipage.

Sandwich alert!! I like to keep Jenn on her toes with interesting sandwich combos ; ) Today’s order sheet read: 2/3 sandwich with cheddar, veggies and hummus as a spread.

How would YOU interpret that!?

I’m really into cheddar cheese these days!

On the side – a plumb and an apricot. The ape was on its last leg – wrinkles, mush and all!

Matt just went home to nap. I’m holding down the fort until this afternoon, then biking to pick up my race packet and then back downtown to see Faith in a dance performance!!

Enjoy the race! I will be in Cville, but gave up my spot because I am still injured :( Don’t go out to fast, the first part is down hill! Can’t wait to read your recap!

I love 4 mile races! 5Ks seem too short, 10Ks seem too long, and the two 1/2 marathons I’ve done were just ridiculous. 4 or 5 miles = just right. Enjoy!

I need some GH bread in my life. This post just made me want it hardcore.

Okay…I’m slow…what’s with the 2/3?! Good luck on your race – 5 a.m – not for me ;) If I ever made it to your shop, I’m gunning for that sandwich. And a brownie.

Me too! I wish GH bread was local.

That sandwich looks SOOOO good! I love sharp cheddar, it can never be too sharp. Yummy!

2/3 sandwich? I’d interpret that as a snack. :)

Welcome to the craziness of the four miler! It’s a lot of people out there! Have a great time-I think your pace is faster than mine (10-11 minutes a mile).

21 Lauren September 2, 2011 at 1:52 pm

my cville 10 miler shirt reads “the towns most prestigious foot race”…maybe some competition for the 4 miler??

22 KathEats September 2, 2011 at 2:50 pm

Haha. I think it’s a tie based on who you ask!

Plums are just right at the moment – I ate the best one I’ve ever had the other day! Good luck on your 4-miler!

haha I love your specific order. Looks like she interpreted it pretty well. Have fun at the dance performance, I love love watching dance. I take modern dance classes through my college and we are often required to see several performances to write reviews on and many of them are very engaging and inspiring, it’s a beautiful art form.

I haven’t done ReciPage with my recipes. Looked into it..decided that’s another project for another…millennium. When I dont have FT motherhood & FT job and can upload them all! Wish there were more hours in the day!

Your tshirt is sooo cute! :) And I love American Apparel. SO SOFT as you said!

31 Emily@SavoryandSavage September 2, 2011 at 2:40 pm

So is one whole sandwich too big of a portion? I find it hard to finish an entire sandwich sometimes.

Have fun at the race tomorrow.

32 KathEats September 2, 2011 at 2:50 pm

Re. Sandwiches: ours are huge!! Sometimes 2/3 is all one needs.

I love how even though body pump has to follow a certain format, each teacher is so unique! Its those little sayings and tweaks that make your class special!

I’ve been a longtime lurker on the KERF website and I finally wanted to say hi!
I love your triple daily posts, oatmeal posts and motivating me to live healthy. I know that you go to a lot of the bodypump classes and I just wanted to introduce you to this site I’ve been using
http://www.bodyrock.tv
It’s pretty popular with subscribers from all over the world doing her exercises which are only 15mins long. but it is SUPER hard…because you set your own determination I guess.
I do find her pics a littleeee bit well…out there (you’ll understand if you see them). But great exercises when you don’t have time!
Oh well, I am starting to rant. Keep up the good work!

I have seriously been sitting here trying to decipher the 2/3… I feel like I am looking at some puzzle where the answer is staring right at me! haha :)

Have FUN running tomorrow! I am living through runners right now as I am nursing a serious running injury :/ Enjoy every moment of it! :-D

45 Shaya (Eye Girl Eats) September 2, 2011 at 5:36 pm

Haha 2/3 of a sandwich– just means less bread?

Cheddar is my favorite cheese behind goat– so much flavor! And the sharper the better :)

46 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife September 2, 2011 at 6:25 pm

I love working the triceps during BodyPUMP and seeing the members and participants lovin’ the burn :) We don’t get the triceps enough in the weight room, I think–so BP is good for that!

Love me some hummus and veg on a good sandwich!!

Love cheddar – the good stuff has so much flavor!! and now I have “Take These Broken Wings” by Mr. Mister in my head. :)

I’ll be up at 5 tomorrow too and be thinking how jealous I am that you will be running and I’ll be working…but such is life :) That sandwich combo sounds so great! Enjoy your Friday night and good luck tomorrow!

I’ll be running (well, mostly walking) the 4 Miler with my 9 year old tomorrow. Will Great Harvest be giving out bread?

Reply

51 KathEats September 2, 2011 at 8:50 pm

Unfortunately no, we wanted to!! Panera had an exclusive :(

Say hi if you see me!

Reply

52 Tina September 3, 2011 at 10:48 am

Bummer! I’m sure you were done long before me and the 9 year old. We did some strolling on the hills, and finished in 50 minutes. Not bad, considering that the 9 year old did no training, and I hadn’t run since mid-August. I hope you enjoyed your first 4 Miler experience.

Nice work!! I had a great time!

I think I need to slip a few slices of cheddar onto the hummus sandwich I have packed for tomorrow’s lunch. It sounds like a yummy combination!

I’m always into cheddar! Looks like a great sandwich :)
