The last Harry Potter was great although they changed the end compared to the end in the book. But it wasn’t annoying or something. I was sad when it was over. I have enjoyed the books and the movies so much and there was always something new to look forward too.
Lori asked me if our fish stay in the pond all year long. Well yes they do. They can survive Winter in our pond. If the water freezes we make a hole in it so they still have air. I think we have our garden this way over 5 years now and all the fish are in it for 5 years, well except the ones that were born in the past years. Only 2 fish died so far.
And Kandi asked if birds eat our fish. They don’t because the pond is surrounded by rocks and it’s not easy for birds to stand on it and catch the fish out of the pond.
Andrea said that working 2,5 hours in the garden doesn’t seem like rest but if I enjoyed it, she guessed it was.
Well I don’t enjoy gardening (I enjoy sitting in it) but it has to be done every now and then. I usually wait too long which makes it a lot of work once I do it. To be honest it wasn’t rest. Because of the moves I make when I garden my legs were so painful the next morning and yesterday I had to cancel my runs. Even walking wasn’t fun but I did do that.
Lesson that I learned: don’t do garden work the day before a run. Do it when the next day is a rest day.

Workout goals July 2011
Quote of the month:
“Running is a big question mark that’s there each and every day. It asks you, ‘Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?’” – Peter Maher
This month a different approach of my workout goals for July. Shelley you will be happy: no numbers this time 🙂
I’m not satisfied how last month went when it comes to working out and running and I don’t feel like sharing numbers this month. It was a little bit better than June but I could have done much better.
Goals for August:
- Follow my half marathon schedule, run at least 4 times every week.
- Keep on going with the 31 days of activity. Doing this reminds me to keep moving for at least 30 minutes every day. Although I got close, I didn’t beat my total of June (1822 minutes) and I’m trying to beat it again this month.
- Keep on swimming and cross training but ….. Summer has finally arrived here today and I decided that I want to do my cross training outside if the weather is good which means I will go out on my bike. If the weather isn’t good I go back indoors for swimming and cross training.
That’s it for this month. I’m not going to be a wimp but I’m going to be strong!
