In more ways than one. 😛😛
Last week was a little chaotic. Work was super busy, I was running behind on all things Christmas and I received some not great news about that job interview I had a few weeks ago. I admit I fell into a cranky funk for a few days but I climbed out of the hole and perked up. I think….maybe I should get a second opinion on that.
Monday- Christmas shopping. With barely anything to wrap- this was necessary. Crossed some things off my list but not much.
Tuesday- Cookie baking! And eating a few too many. Also planned. Well, maybe not how many I ate. Oh and my PT exercises.
Wednesday- Missed run. My replacement bed was delivered and once again, Pops was there for the delivery. Instead of running I headed home to take the family out to dinner.
Thursday- 3.3 milesOn the treadmill!!! Holy crap, who am I? And it wasn’t miserable! I warmed up with plenty of walking as the treadmill always makes me achy and then I worked on focusing on my cadence. Both to see if I could improve my average number and if it would help with the on again, off again shin pain. Partial success to both! What was not cool was that Monsters Inside Me was once again on the TV in front of me. Why?!?!?!
Friday-Work My hopes for a calm day were not granted.
Saturday- Missed run. I had planned on a 6 mile run longish run for the week and scheduled my day accordingly. However that schedule had me running in the afternoon because I wanted to sleep in. Which was all fine until my brother decided to take my mother and I to the movies and dinner. Instead I enjoyed yummy food and walked out of theater with a strange fascination with Adam Driver. Someone send help. 😛
Sunday- Christmas Eve Try as I might, I could not get the motivation up to go for a run. So other than some errands- why did I not grocery shop before Christmas Eve?????- I spent the day with family relaxing and lounging.
So yeah, 3.3 miles for the week. I’m not going to say ouch because I chose to miss those 2 runs. I chose dinner and the movies and family time over the runs and I’m ok with that.
