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!!

What are you up to this weekend?

Howdy people!

I kind of fell of the grid there for a bit.  I kept meaning to post all week but then just never followed through.   I’ve had a very short attention span all week.  Oops!

3 day weekend ahead!! Woo hoo!!!! Who has plans?  I am going to try and avoid this crazy heat wave we’ve been hit with.   I need to attempt a longish run somehow but Saturday is showing a high of 110.   Yay.😒

I also need to go bed shopping.  Partially Doc’s orders now too.  Need to figure out what part of my tiredness is from my shitty bed and what is thyroid based.  I was like great, can insurance help pay for it then? 😛  Plus bed shopping sucks.  How do I know what feels good? It’s 5 minutes in a store- totally awkward.  Bed stores should have sleep overs.  You like this bed? Alright, come on in on Friday night- 8 to 8.  Sleep a whole night on it. That will give you an idea of how the bed sleeps.

I love my Escape in all ways but 2.  I miss 2 things about my Altima and the day I bought it just popped up on Timehop so I’m feeling nostalgic.  The gas tank.  That car had a 19 gallon tank and damn I miss that.   I get the same gas mileage now but with a smaller tank I feel like I am in the gas station all the damn time.   And hills- that car ate hills for breakfast.  Whereas the Escape cries big crocodile tears.  I live at around 1000 elevation and work at 50.   Depending on which way I go to work I can get up to 2000 and down again.  The Altima purred.  Seriously, it was a source of pride that my tachometer was rarely above 1500 RPM’s.  If someone was tailgating, I knew I’d lose them on the hills.  This one?  Not so much.  I call it names when driving over the grade.  It’s getting better though.  I’m a firm believer that you can train a car.  I said that to mother once and she said I was a nuts.  😛

And the news just gave a heat warning again.   Oh joy.  They even canceled all the high school sporting events due to “excessive heat”.   Home town may break a record high.  Yay.

What are you doing this weekend?

Friday, Friday, yay.

People, I have huge race news but I don’t have the brain power to adequately share it.   But let’s just say marathon #2 is on the calendar.  Who wants to come to CA and run some hills with me?!

Work has calmed down a little.  I’m still crazy tired but some of my piles have gotten smaller.  Or I’ve moved them.  Hmmm, I’m not sure.

I  have run this week actually but barely.  So far more than this point last week though.  😛

This went down last night-


And right now Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are causing chaos a mile down the street.  😛  ( ok, I typed this Thursday night)

How was your week?

Holy crap, how is it Friday?  And…I am so glad it’s Friday.  😛

I thought I was prepared for July.  So far July’s been a like a steamroller.   We’re only 7 days in!  I’ve only run once this week, and done nothing else.

Adding insult to the fatigue of 10 hour days, I woke up on Thursday with a sore throat.   Tried to tell myself it was just because I slept with the fan on.    By the end of the day I was in denial that I had a head cold.  I tired to run it out.  Not sure yet if that was a good idea.

Apparently someone had a little too much to drink on the 4th- someone show an arrow through our back shed.  An actual arrow.  Are you freakin’ kidding me?!?

I plans for a 12 mile long run this weekend but with a projected temp of 107 and this damn head cold, I am feeling less than optimistic.

Well, this post turned out to be quite whiny.  😛

Any weekend plans?

What’s up people?  Happy Fri-yay!

I’ve only been back at work for 4 days and I am only treading water.   I was prepared for July to be crazy but that crazy started 3 weeks early.   I came back from vacation to find hundreds of emails and that the next 4 weeks are full of trainings and meetings.  I need more hours in the day.  And more caffeine.  Some of these meetings are 8 hours long.   I apologize now if I start making no sense over the next few weeks.  😛

Speaking of long meetings?  Any tips for staying awake?  I have troubles in enclosed spaces and after a few hours a meeting room becomes a small space.

Can I just say that I’m loving the extendable visors in my new car?  It’s the little things right?

There should be a bullshit detector at the DMV.  I have to renew my license this year and my last few have all been by mail.  My picture and information haven’t been updated since I was 19.😯  My weight was wrong then- 40 pounds more than what I really weighed at the time- and I didn’t bother to correct it today.   She asked if it had changed and even though I know full well I weigh 30 lbs more than it says- I said it’s all good.  

How old is your driver’s license picture?
