Yup, that was the most random title for a blog post – I wonder if I’ll get “Freshly Pressed” for that one 😉
It’s been a fun few days between work and home with the girls. I managed to play Pickle Ball the other day at work – yeah, I know… lucky us! We played for about 45 minutes then met all day – pretty good way to start a meeting, eh!
Pickle Ball is completely new to me but apparently gaining popularity among senior’s groups! I grew up playing badminton and love the sport so Pickle Ball was pretty awesome! You have a paddle and waffle ball (the colour of a pickle) and play on a badminton court. You can use normal badminton nets or these smaller indoor tennis tents!
We celebrated Valentine’s Day. Watched a bunch of Olympics and played in the snow…again!
Running these days….I feel like I am the Queen of procrastination this week in regards to my running. It was kinda taking a back seat to life, work and coming down with a cold. I’ve played soccer, played in the snow, skated and managed a few lousy runs. It took me a lot of convincing Saturday night to get my run in.
I have no races coming up and I think that’s why my motivation is lacking to run right now. I’m thinking a virtual run is needed in the next 4 weeks or I’m just going to have to set some goals to get some good running in.
What did you do this weekend?
Anyone loving the Olympics or is it starting to get old? (I’m loving it!)
Have you ever played or heard of Pickle Ball ?

lol, pickle ball. I’ve never heard of it before but the name cracks me up 🙂
It IS a funny name for a sport!
My Mom was going on about pickle ball one day and I was like “WHat the heck are you talking about?” but it sounds fun!
It’s a massive hit throughout the Valley with Seniors! It’s actually quite fun!
I’ve never heard of pickleball – but it sounds fun! I’m game to try anything once!
I had never heard of it before and was a little unsure until I played it.
I remember playing pickle ball in gym class! It was so fun! And as for the Olympics, my whole family and my bf are totally high on every sport but I couldn’t be any less interested… I’m a terrible person I know lol
You did! That’s awesome!
Your not a terrible person…it’s not for everyone 🙂
Never heard of pickle ball, but it sounds freaky. I like it. We’re loving the olympics too. I set a big marathon PR this weekend, then watched olympics until I fell asleep, then watched more after I woke up. it was fantastic.
Congrats on your new marathon PR – wow….sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever run a FULL marathon. That’s awesome! Great way to spend your time post race – watching the Olympics!
Thanks for sharing about pickle ball! How bizarre! This weekend I actually got a sweat in – yoga! Slowly coming back from injury!
It’s pretty fun! Glad to hear you are getting in some good activity while the knee recovers.
I have never heard of Pickle Ball! haha! I can imagine pickles flying about! Sounds good though! 🙂
Ha ha. Well the ball is the colour of a pickle – thought that was weird! Maybe it makes it easier on the eyes, who knows?!
Haha! Sounds cool! 😀
We used to play Pickle Ball in PE- completely forgot about it until just now haha!
That’s awesome! Glad I could bring you back to your PE classes 🙂
