It’s only Thursday but this week has felt like a month. Back to work on Monday with a little run. Volleyball playoffs were on Tuesday. Class final due on Wednesday (seriously I must have been insane to take a course in the summer), work today with a run after. And through it all, my ankle has been making its presence known. I am now also 25 days in that squat challenge.
Playoffs on Tuesday were, umm yeah. Well, we made the playoffs, maybe we should leave it there. Haha, we came in fourth. The better part of the night was $1 tacos and $2 beers with the team afterwards 🙂
Today was just an “ugh” day. Nothing wrong, just in a funk. Ever had one of those? Left work for my run and was dragging. Met my friend at the park and was happy to see the jogging stroller. Yeah! A reason to go slow! Plus her baby is so stinkin’ cute, its impossible to stay cranky.
I am kind of an all or nothing kind of person. I am either running or I am a total slacker. I spent so much time trying to get faster and working on my speed that I have troubles going out easy when something hurts, so the stroller was awesome. 2 slower laps with them and 1 faster after. Today may have been slow but it was still 3.5 miles. And jogging strollers are harder to push (better workout, hehe) when the tires are low on air. The thing is brand new; do they all lose air like that? Finished my 220 squats and am done, woo hoo!
Tomorrow may be Friday but for now, I am in my comfy chair with a fan on, and an ice pack on my ankle. I have a snack of chips and salsa, oh and a nice cold, homemade margarita. With real fruit!
