Rambling On – 59

Happy Friday!!

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?

What are you up to this weekend?

Happy Friday!!

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.

Rambling On- Still Not Sure

Happy Friday! And a 3 day weekend at that!

And I am so looking forward to it.

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.

Rambling On 39

Ever had a case of the yawns?  I was yawning all day on Thursday.  I just couldn’t seem to stop.

My Nissan would not let me lock my keys in my car.  I can officially confirm that my Ford is not that smart.  Neither am I.   Lesson learned the hard way.

Speaking of my Ford- I joke that it’s the gutless wonder. Yet, somehow this week, every time I got behind someone- on the freeway, the scenic route, etc., cars kept moving over. Do I look scary???😂

I finished my Person of Interest binge on Netflix. I started a few months ago but took a break when the last season started because I knew what was coming. I won’t lie- I acted like a 5 year old and hid the screen with my hand during part of the series finale. 😂 Still can’t handle it.

Now I need something new to watch.

This week has been odd with the exercise. Makes me wonder how the weekend is going to go.

All the schools have officially started again out here which means my commute has become a little more time consuming. 3 school zones in 3 different cities.😒

But in awesome news- the weather forecast is in the 80’s for the next week!!! Party!!!

Is it Friday yet? And now it is because I didn’t finish this when I started it.  Oops.  But yay!

Nothing makes a lazy runner stretch more than the first twinge of an injury.

Right?

I’ve been having some back issues and I was hoping they would clear up with the new bed.  Yeah, that hasn’t happened yet.   I realize it hasn’t even been 2 weeks but still.  I think the movie theater chairs really pissed it off.    Monday saw the yoga app being used and more stretching on Tuesday.    Sitting on tennis balls, foam rolling, you name it.  Grrr.

This week has been odd.  I feel run over but not exhausted.   I don’t even know how that makes sense.   It’s been odd adjusting to my boss being gone and as a result, I’ve been a little absent this week.  Ok, if I’m honest- the last month.   I am going to get back to a normal schedule- I miss you guys!

We now get to wear jeans on Fridays and I think I am the only one going wah.  I have to wear pants?  But I don’t like pants.  😛  It’s ok, I can deal with it once a week.  😀

With San Jose in 2 weeks, I would really like to pull off a 10 miler this weekend.  Fingers crossed!!!

In other news, Fall is definitely in the air!!
