I keep writing this post in my head but once I sit down at the laptop, it all just disappears. Poof! Am I getting old or just super stressed??
Speaking of getting old… I have a birthday coming up and it’s a big one. Can’t say I am exactly pleased about it…I keep joking I am dress all in black with black balloons everywhere. Maybe. Maybe I’ll just go and get a little lost. Who knows?
This week I met my new boss and had numerous medical exams planned. I don’t I have ever spent so much time trying to determine what to wear. Probably more so for the medical appointments. Maybe could have used a heads up on how personal an ultrasound for a blood clot in your leg gets. Haha! I mean you remember basic anatomy but you still forget too, right? Or was it just me?
I started this post in June. It’s now July. Oops. Also, how is it July????
Concerts are coming back and somehow one of my favorite bands is coming to town to the outdoor amphitheater. What are the odds? Rise Against coming to wine territory? Who knew??
I am registered for 3 more half marathons this year. I have got to get my butt in gear. Why am I still feeling so lazy??? I seriously need early morning running partners. Harder to hit snooze if it would mean bailing on someone else. Plus 2 people is safer when there might be creatures out there in the morning. Eek.
I did get out for a slow, easy hike testing the leg. No complaints about the view.
Also someone needs to take my debit card away from me when I’m feeling moody. Especially since Altra and Lululemon know exactly what emails to send me.😂
It’s been a while since I rambled… I feel a rambling coming on.
I am running and I started a training plan! Huzzah! Will I stick to it or will I respond like I usually do to a training plan? Follow it for 2 weeks and then shove it to the bottom of my purse? Well, I can’t do that part as I haven’t printed this one- see I do learn- but still. I need the structure though… I may have a real life race at the end of May!
I am finally stitch free! For like only the next 6 days, but little victories right? And I am trying to think positively. And maybe squeeze in more miles in the next few days as I am not sure I will still be able to wear a sports bra after the next procedure.
I am very much a left side sleeper. Not being able to sleep on my left side the last 2 weeks has messed me up. Hopefully with the stitches out, I can start easing back that way, Fingers crossed!! Anyone else set in their sleep patterns? Or is it just me?
I’ve been comfort binge watching Warehouse 13 since I got the news. It was working pretty well but I finished it! Now what to watch when I need to slightly tune out but still be involved as well? That isn’t sad.
I visited what used to be my happy place when I commuted every day. I do miss this lake more than I thought I would. My running was also on a more regular pattern when I drove an hour each way for work Oops.
The shoe saga continues. I have a new pair of trail shoes coming on Friday and I just ordered a new pair of road running shoes too. I may have a problem. Give me all the shoes!
Thought I had more but I am sleepy. Share something random!
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??
Granted part of that could be the lingering sick. Mostly just super tired. So tired.
Did I mention that while I was sick, I may have spent too much time on the computer? The online purchases are starting to roll in. Oops.
Oh, and I may have registered for 4 races. Not oops but more on that later.
I did finally manage to get a run in and oh my god, I am so sore. It was only a week off?!?! Just gotta keep telling myself that it took more than a month to get this out of shape, it’s a long road back.
(insert that damn Miley Cyrus “Climb” song)
We had some amazing running weather this week. Of course when I wasn’t running. Ha!
I’m starting to think that meme that said January was just practice for the year was right.
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.😂
