I do know I am excited about a 3 day weekend! Sleep and running, that’s whats on schedule for me. Well, hopefully.
Had a lovely day of dizzy spells but I refrained from giving myself a concussion this time so I am just going to call that a win. See, I can think positively!
Oh and I got new trail shoes! Hopefully I can get back out on the trails now. Which I haven’t done in months. Those Cascadia’s can burn in hades for all I care. My feet still have nightmares from them. And a bunion I’ve apparently had forever but has never bugged me until now. Grrrr.
Anyone else still feel like it’s January?? I cannot get the date right at all.
I was supposed to run a race this weekend but I’m not. Not sure I’m up to unpacking all the reasons why at the moment.
I feel like binge watching something… any suggestions??
October wasn’t the greatest month and while I am not exactly sad to see it pass, I don’t think I am ready for the end of the year which coincidentally is the end of the decade. Again, how?!
Speaking of October- I broke my rule of never wearing a tutu again. We were crayons at work and I wore a tutu. I mean it’s my own fault- I said the only way to wear leggings was if we covered our backsides with a tutu. I regretted it right after I said it.
In the summer I paused my relationship with Hulu. I meant to cancel it but they had the pause feature and I fell for it. Then forgot and it un-paused on Monday. I was irritated then proceeded to binge watch Looking for Alaska. Which led to crying. It’s not like I didn’t know- I’ve read the book! And threw it across the break room at work a few years ago. Really glad no one walked in at that moment.
I really need some time in the dirt. I may have to get over my never run trails alone thing. However that could also be bad due to my tendency to get lost. Mentally and physically.
I’ve become obsessed with a puzzle app in my down time. Maybe I was stressed or still am but I find it soothing. Which is odd because I’ve always hated real puzzles.
It’s Friday!! Let’s celebrate. Is it sad that I want to celebrate by napping? Which all local teachers apparently agreed with- there is no school on this day. The day after Halloween. I see what they did there.😂
I love Fridays but this one is a doozy. As this goes live, I will be driving hours away with a car full of teenage girls. Send help. And caffeine. Please.
I’ve dealing with a bout of insomnia this week. It’s been a bit rough. It used to be the norm for me actually but the past few years have been better. And my migraine meds put me right to sleep at night now. Just not this week. I can’t brain anymore.
According to the news, this has been the coolest summer in years. Yeah, what? I know I am gettign older but I’m sorry 106 is not handable anymore. And yes, I realize this is coming from the person who said 3 miles in 100* last week wasn’t bad. Where is fall?
Then again, I want the fall temps and not the early darkness. So picky!
I need something new to watch. I finished Teen Wolf and now I feel lost. I’ve too many Hallmark movies and Ridiculousness lately. Any suggestions?
I may have taken advantage of some of the Labor Day deals on running gear. Or maybe they took advantage of me? But new gear is fun, right?
I love Fridays and I think this one will be decent as I do not have to work open to close. Woot Woot!
It’s fair time here and I think I may be skipping it this year. What? Don’t get me wrong, I am craving a funnel cake something fierce but the idea of the costs and all those people does not float my boat. Hell, getting to and from work for the last week and a half has been stupid. We’re a town of 30,000 and right now we’re probably clearing 100,000. And yes, we have that many hotels.
My summer TV binge continues. I finished Veronica Mars over the weekend. I then broke up with Hulu. I really did. Now, I’m on to Teen Wolf. Which I watched before and is surprisingly better than you think. Well, once you get past first season. That was pretty cheesy.
The heatwave is real but I’ve been at work all week and haven’t been able to leave so I feel like I’ve missed most of it. Ha!
I was giving directions in Spanish one day this week and totally blanked on the word 20. What? How basic is that??
Of all the bands at the fair so far, I could only hear a little from Blake Shelton and Cardi B. Why Don’t We has been the loudest so far. I heard nothing from Lynyrd Skynyrd. Really?
My training plan is all messed up this week. I may have given myself a concussion and I have to work on Saturday. Boo.
Yeah, I still don’t know what number- probably still in the 50’s.
What I am not looking forward to is the projected weather. It has been gray, rainy and cold for most of May. This weekend is looking to be the same. Where is the sun??? And yet I know, I am fickle and will be complaining when I am melting on my runs in a few short weeks. Still, it has been an oddly cold May.
Doesn’t the weather know I have new Rabbit shorts to test out????
I also have a new race on the calendar to tell you about soon. I am also narrowing down by big race of the year. It’s changed a few times- not all my fault, one of the races moved and eliminated the distance I was planning for. However I think I am leaning towards a commitment. Hmmmm.
Also, am I the only one not offended by this article? Yeah, he’s a smart ass and obviously biased but still…
I have the urge to go to the movies and just eat a giant bucket of popcorn but there’s nothing showing I want to see.
I also have the urge to go run up a mountain so you could say I’m confused. 😂
And I’m mildly obsessed with that Avicii song Tough Love.
