One of the cool things about relocating is finding new running routes. I see so much more on foot than I do driving around so it’s been fun exploring.
In the past I never drove anywhere to run, but this time I’m driving a bit to find my new favorite route. Well with the exception of yesterday – I didn’t have much ground to cover.
It’s been awhile since I did any strength training so yesterday I jumped back into it. Man it felt so good to be back! I try to strength train 3 to 4 days a week.
Sperry’s are totally the new cross training shoe of choice.
Let’s be real, I was too lazy to change shoes.
And ended the workout with a wall sit. My quads were on fire at the end – I love that feeling!
Yesterday’s adventures took me through the countryside (shocking, right!) to a place called The Farm. I saw it from the freeway when we were looking for a place and knew I had to go check it out.
The Farm is 100% certified organic and they grow a wide variety of fresh produce like strawberries, several types of lettuce, squash, tomatoes, pumpkins and a lot more that I can’t remember.
I didn’t pick up anything as I just went to the grocery store the day before, but I can’t wait to go back. Fresh picked produce is one of my favorite things ever.
I’m sure Mike would love to spend his Saturday picking flowers with me. Maybe they should consider offering beer and a man chair. Hah!
The field of flowers to choose from is a dream!
I’m off to do some more exploring and unpacking. Yeah, there are still several boxes staring at me but having fun is more of a priority these days and that’s just fine with me.
Do you drive to run or just stay around your neighborhood?
How do you feel about organic foods?
I tend to spring a little more to buy the “dirty dozen” organic if possible. Though I think some things like bananas are not worth the extra price tag.
I’m just throwing this out there - are there any regulations on distance between conventional farms and organic farms? We have only lived out here for a little over a week and have seen several crop dusters flying around and who’s to say the wind doesn’t carry the pesticides to another field?
Just my thought for the day.
