Snuggle fabric softener and a song in my head

Stopping at Walmart on the way home to purchase some bleach, I spied the Snuggle fabric softener across the aisle. My favorite is the Lavender & Sandalwood scent. But I have not been able to find any in Montgomery. All I have seen here is Lavendar & White Orchid and it was the same at the Walmart tonight. 

Yeah. That was a bummer. Sandalwood is my thing. 

The other day I came across a show on Feeln. It is a series titled LEGACY staring Brett Cullen so I had to check it out. The series, apparently, was not picked up. It ends a bit abruptly at the end of Season 1. 

Yeah. That was a bummer. Unresolved issues are so irritating.

Below is the theme song, by Loreena McKennitt, that is now stuck in my brain. 

Yeah. That is a bummer when only a section of the song, the theme of the unfinished saga, plays repeatedly as a reminder you are left hanging.

Other than that my day has been pretty great. It started off with me pushing my little Wall Ball, Charlie R., in his stroller for a 1.4 mile walk/Granny Shuffle run. I walked 500 meters to warm-up then shuffled 100m then walked 100m cycles until the last 90m when I walked it out. 

Yeah baby. Granny’s got a great pair of shoes. Missing my Brooks but loving my Altras.

A little Granny shuffle today

Finally, the spirit of running, well the spirit of the Granny shuffle, kicked in as I made my way around one of my walking routes. It felt amazing. Since my foot drama I have come back with a 100k row and a jumprope challenge and a barely shuffle twenty feet on Monday’s walk.  

For the last few weeks I have been pushing my Wall Ball (my little Charlie R. in his stroller) for a mile plus walk, gradually increasing my walking speed but today  something just took over and I started the real granny shuffle. It was a bit of a shock.

Then my mind kicked in telling me to start some run/walk intervals for time when all of a sudden my mind took over and I started shuffling, not wanting to walk. (It may have happened because I was so close to home and I wanted to be done already.)  And as I shuffled those old feelings of thinking I am a runner popped into my mind. 

I am back. Shuffling, but I am really back. Time to break out the PWR Sandbag and take that shuffle to the next level.

Got that walk in today!

My little Charlie R. is growing like a weed. His nap time has been fluctuating since returning from his French holiday but this week I think he has totally sorted himself out. He is definitely a morning baby, up early, nap early and then play hard, work hard until it is time to go to sleep. 

Finally we got to go on one of our beloved one-mile walks today and it was wonderful. Hot. Humid. But it was simply glorious.

Love that Map My Run app! Works well for walking too. 

Next time, I will remember to strap on my PWR Sandbag and don my running shoes so we can go faster.

Well, faster is a relative term.
