Run!

Rambling On 27

Fri-yay!!! I’m so glad it’s Friday.

It’s been an interesting week…at least it’s felt that way. Has it felt that way to anyone else?

I’m not a usually a fan of Justin Timberlake- don’t disown me- but I’m really liking that new Say Something song. Who am I???

Speaking of music, the local Fair has started announcing the summer lineup and they are stepping up this year. I know I’ll be going at least twice. I missed Florida George Line the last time they came so I’m not going to now. And Gabriel Iglesias is coming too. Fluffy!!!!! Could care less about Luke Bryan or Eric Church though. 😛

But how are we talking about summer already??? Wasn’t it just Christmas?? I’m already registering for races in October (more on that later). Slow down!

Speaking of things to disown me for- I don’t watch This Is Us. There, I confessed. I feel better now.😂

Happy Friday!

What are you up to this weekend?

As long as I’m doing the things in my 2018 post, it’s cool if it’s not posted until almost February, right?? Asking for a friend. 😂

This week, man. Seems like I can’t do anything right. Running has been ok… other stuff? Not so much.

We’re taking employee pictures this week and can I just say that is so much harder than a running selfie? I’m like suck it in… wait, too much, now my neck looks scary, wth. Smile but not too big… does this look professional? Then a customer asked why we were all wearing black. Apparently we all think alike. 😛

My back and the treadmill are not friends. Nope. Why is daylight savings in March?

Another thing I’m not doing well this week? Sleep. As I type this, it’s past midnight. 4th time this week. Gotta love those can’t sleep nights.

On that note, maybe I should try to sleep and dream of the tri tip lunch that will be Friday’s treat. Good fuel for a long run weekend right?

Happy Friday!

So that 2018 plan post is going to have to be next week. I had such big plans for it, wrote a great one in my head while on a run last week but can’t quite get it right in print.😛. Which is partly why I’ve been so quiet this week.

Another reason is that I’ve been freakin’ tired. Like in bed every night before 11:30 and dozing off in the chair well before that. For this night owl, that’s highly abnormal. But considering everybody and their brother I see has some kind of flu/ plague, I won’t complain about a little extra tiredness. Knocks on wood.

It took until Wednesday for me to be able to lift my left arm above neck level, so running has been a little absent. Kind of hard to run when you can’t put on a sports bra.😒

I think I like my bed but again, knocking on wood.  Then again, I’m stuck with this one so I better learn to like it!

I have lots of miles to make up this weekend, but I also have a 3 day weekend to look forward too, so yay!

What are you doing this weekend?

Last ramble of 2017.

I totally just zoned out on the page…oops!

Every year I tell myself to take the week after Christmas off because things always seem to go completely screwy at work and I end up feeling a little ragged.  This week was no different.   Someone remind me of this next year.   Please.

I am behind on my 2017 wrap up post…but if it is still 2017 can you really be behind??? Hmmm.🤔

This week has been weird, sick dogs- Zoey went to the vet, sick coworkers, houses literally on fire- not mine. Like I said before, a screwy week.

Anyone racing on New Years?  How about a Polar Plunge?  I have both options available actually but I don’t think either are likely.    A jump in the ocean doesn’t seem like the best idea for the sore throat and cough that I currently denying exist.  Nope, don’t have time for that.

However, the 3 day weekend sounds very nice.😀

Share your random.

Week 51- Christmas Slacking

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.

How was your week?

How was your Christmas?
