Happy Hump Day!
This is going to be a short and sweet check in, my slacker-ness finally caught up with me. My running may have become more consistent over the past year but I am still a huge procrastinator. I have a fairly big paper and a little paper due at the beginning of next week and I put it off until the last minute. I gave myself a word minium to hit before I would allow myself to write a post or read other blogs. 😦 So I may be a little behind this week.
I took Monday as a rest day in favor of working on my paper, it didn’t work. I managed 200 measly words. I am having the worst case of writers block. I had to take my car in for an oil change and some service light issues on Tuesday, so I was hoping that the dealer had Wifi so I could continue researching. They didn’t. I did however get 600 words written on the notepad on my iPad. I also completely changed my subject, so new research time! I wanted to post last night but I was stuck trying to download the 1910 census. Did you know you can do that? It takes forever but it can be done. Talk about a time trip.
I did manage to get to the lake path for a short run last night. We are in the middle of a heat wave here, so I was a little concerned about the warmth but luckily there was a nice breeze. My home town is supposed to hit triple digits and my cute little oceanside work town hit 90 yesterday. And it’s only May. I may actually have to use my gym membership this summer. 😦 My mom and the puppy met up with me at the lake as well. She was tired due to the reno that they are doing so she said she was only going to walk 2 laps. That was fine by me because I was aiming for 3 laps for 3.5 miles. We actually finished around the same time. I tried to focus on my form again and make sure that I was using my right leg more. I was kind of tired though and even with the breeze it was a little warmer than I would have liked, so the last mile I kind of stopped caring about my form.
Afterwards we went to a local burger place for dinner. I actually ordered a salad, it was super yummy. Then it was home for more research and writing. Yippiee! Oh well, I will get it done and return to normal posting and running- I may have to take another rest day to write. Boo!
Anyone else ignore deadlines?
