BodyRock, Maine & Friday Link Love

by Nicole on August 12, 2011

We’re off to Portland, Maine as soon as I finish this post. I’m excited because I haven’t been there. I always love exploring new places, especially through running, coffee shops and ice cream. Clearly those are the most important things.

We’re going for one of Danny’s friend’s weddings. You know how much I love weddings, because I just LOVE love.

Since we want to leave semi-soon, I got up this morning and did a Body Rock workout. I did this Haven’t Had Enough workout, but modified it by doing a regular push up burpee and regular lunges (minus the jump). Brutal.

Even though I’ve recovered from runner’s knee, I still have to be conscious of what I do. I can’t push it and this week I pushed it with running 3 days, plyometrics and weights. I’m nervous about wearing heals to the wedding I have this weekend, but really, how can I not? Vanity, folks.  I’ll take a major rest day on Sunday by staying planted on my rear for the 6 hour drive home from Maine.

After doing lots of blog reading this week, I wanted to share my favorite posts of the week:

1. I was really impressed with Matt’s post about how to make homemade Kombucha (even though I’ve never even had a sip of it!)

2. Liz’s Awaken Wednesday post was amazingly inspirational. Why Not You? Check it out.

3. I am majorly lusting after Anna’s A Lotta Caponata. I love everything about this, and need to make it!

4. Estella made these Southwest Turkey Burgers, which I want to make too. I always make the same turkey burgers over and over again. Need to try.

5. And last, but certainly not least, Evan has me straight up DROOLING over these Chocolate Cheesecake bars, that are raw and vegan! Who can I make these for?? Any takers?

Share your favorite posts of the week! And if you have any Portland, Maine recommendations, please share!

Have fun in Maine at the wedding! I’ve never been either. Take lots of pics!

I know what you mean about pushing it. A few months ago my knees flared up and I was diagnosed with early onset arthritis. I used to LOVE training legs and now I’m fearful every time I go to the gym. I push it, but am mindful of what my body is telling me. If I feel even a tinge of pain I stop. I actually met with a trainer this morning who is going to help me balance out some things with my legs. I’m really excited!
