Tuesday was ummm, interesting. I knew work was going to be busy like it always is after a 3 day weekend. This proved true but it was actually a good day. My boss and I are planning a big December for the rest of the team, so we made the first of many shopping trips. We hit the local dollar store to pick up some things. I know it’s the dollar store but they really need to work on their customer service! As we were leaving and trying not to get run over by a woman and her cart, this guy stops us and asks how do I not have a ring on my finger. He then kept walking. Awkward!!!!! I looked at my boss, she looked at me and we busted up laughing and ran the other direction. Both in our 30’s and we could not stop laughing. I never get hit on, probably due to the perpetual “bitch face” my mother says I have. 🙂
Tuesday was also the last volleyball games of the season and also this year. I will miss the girls but I am ready for a break. After the playoff games, we finished an impressive last. Woo hoo!!! We actually played really well last night but for whatever reasons, we can never close. Volleyball nights always end up being fun, but it gets frustrating losing all the time. I will miss the socialization aspect but maybe now I can get in a run on Tuesdays. 🙂
Can I just say, Daylight savings sucks. I didn’t even notice the extra hour of sleep. But then I set my clocks back the night before. I do it the spring too, which helps because I never really feel like I lose an hour either. The darkness bites big time. I have not been able to run after work. I need to get to the gym but am having trouble following through after work. Plus with volleyball and school, its hard fitting it in. Thursdays used to be awesome because I could run in between work and school. However my gym is almost 35 miles from school. There are other gyms in the towns where work and school are but not one from my chain. I just keep telling myself that I only have 4 actual weeks of class left with 2 off in between.
want need to become a morning runner. But it is so hard. My bed is so very comfy and warm. The cat is purring. See, hard? I pulled it off 2 years ago for about a month and a half before bailing out. That was also before I started to commute. I have set my alarm for 4:45 and 5 AM for the last 2 weeks. I have hit snooze every time. That whole theory about having your clothes laid out and ready to go? Doesn’t work for me. Where’s a drill sergeant when you need one?
Tonight I met a couple of people from class to work on a group project. Even at this age, group projects make me grit my teeth. I would have rather been running. Tomorrow I have class, and I have no idea what I am going to do to kill time before it. Probably homework. Maybe my next post will include some actual running!
Hopefully, everyone is having a good week!
Any tips for running in the morning? Cold mornings?
