Funnel Cakes and cross training

So I survived my foray into the fair.  Ate too much junk food and spent too much money, but hey, it only comes once a year right?  So I countrified myself up and had some fun. I wore my shitkickers (haha!) there and they served a dual purpose.  I fit in better, :) and they helped support my ankle or shin, still debating which.  Didn’t feel a thing all night.   As opposed to its loud grumbling when I took my boots off.  Not cool.

So Saturdays plan for a nice run was postponed :( Now I am fine with being a Slacker Runner when it is being lazy of my own volition; that is just me being me.  However, taking it easy because something hurts just makes me cranky.   It suddenly makes me want to run more!  Anyone else like that?

It happened to be a rest day for the squat challenge as well, so that worked out.  I figured if I couldn’t run, or shouldn’t, I would do some cross training.  I had a funnel cake to work after all.  I know that I should do cross training and I have it in my training plan, but I hate it.  I really do.  This is how I usually end up having 3 rest (slacker) days a week.  So today I made myself get back on the bike. Stationary bike that is, did 8 miles and called it done.  Ugh.  So hoping to get in a few miles on the track tomorrow.  Fingers crossed!

On the upshot, I had this awesomeness made at the fair on Friday.  Super nerdy, I know, but I love it.Image
