Saturday snapshot

On you mark. Get set. Wog!


Our jogging stroller has arrived! Woot, woot! My in-law’s purchased the BOB Ironman for us – it was the only thing I asked them for when prompted – after hearing lots of positive reviews. Right now it’s parked in the dining room as we need to order a car seat adapter (the one we bought at the local bike shop was for older BOBs). We should get it just in time for my 6-week post-partum checkup where I expect to get the all-clear.

Green envy rides again!

cycling This picture is obviously from last summer.

I’ve been riding my bike to my Weight Watcher meetings (four blocks away), and it has given me an itch. An itch to really ride. So, on Thursday, I asked Mark to keep Miles all by his lonesome for an hour or so so that I could go out by myself for a bit. I rode just over 6.5 miles in 35 minutes and it was … it was … well, freeing. Painful but freeing. I felt my quads and my heart each time I pedaled, a reminder that I need to ease back into a cardio routine. Hence the 6.5 miles and not 10 I naively thought I could do.

Barefoot and not pregnant.

I’ve been wearing my Vibrams. I promise. Even if there is no photographic proof. In fact, I went zero to 60 (or 0.5 mile to 2.5 miles) in the stretch of two walks. I guess I’m not good at easing into everything. No worries – there are no strains to report - just some calf pain.

Best friends forever.


Denali is doing as well as can be expected with Miles around. There are some signs of jealousy and depression but he doesn’t seem to want to hurt Miles. In fact, he just wants to lick him. All. The. Time. It’s just me Denali is pissed at. We’ll see if he changes his tune the first time I lace up my Nikes.

What do y’all have going on this weekend?


  1. I was wondering how Denali was handling all this - glad to hear he's doing ok.

  2. that picture of Denali and Miles is soooo cute! Hopefully you love that jogging stroller when you can start using it. I've heard amazing things about BOBs

  3. We LOVE our BOB. Hopefully Miles loves it as much as Henry!

  4. That is one sweet jogging stroller! Think I need to get me some vibrams! Do you like them?

  5. Welcome back Green Envy!
    Have you mentally "mapped" out your first run back? Something scenic or slightly different then your preggo walks? Yay - hope you will be safe and slowly return to running via "wogging" (who uses that word?? girl . . . you don't wog!) :)
    Love the pix of Miles and Denali! Love that he licks.all.the.time. Hilarious!
