Something weird is going on… after my 18 MILES yesterday woohoo… I had a pretty weird day.
I got home super tired and hungry and disgusting, as usual. I ate a wonderful yogurt bowl as I sat in the shower, letting the water massage my legs, as usual. Then I had lunch, read blogs, and took a nap… all normal-ish. The thing that upset me was how dead I felt before, during and after my nap. I felt like my run had just fully punched me in the face. I suppose I deserve that after pretending like I didn’t need to train for the upcoming marathon for a month.
I went outside to start the laundry and I left MY KEYS in the laundry room… the laundry room that locks automatically. Yep, I stood outside for 40 minutes waiting for someone to enter or exit the apartment building. I felt so annoyed. All I could think about was how thirsty I was and how bad I needed chapstick. Oh how I didn’t appreciate the things I had in my apartment until I couldn’t have them…
Finally someone let me in.
After dinner last night I was super tired AGAIN! My body was not loving my decision to train for the marathon. I can’t remember if I always feel like this after long runs, or if it gets better with time.
Today I feel quite a bit better, but I was reminded of my carelessness when…
I was sitting in a chair at the dining table, reading something on my computer… normal.
Then I just suddenly slid over to my right. I had been sitting on top of my right leg, which was bent under my butt. I just kept sliding and sliding, my leg got caught on the other side of the chair, and then I fell right over onto the floor. Hard. It hurt and I was scared, but mostly I just laid there thinking wtf just happened. The funniest thing is that for some reason I looked out the window to see if anyone had seen/heard me. omg You THINK people care what you’re doing…
So, now I am considering whether or not the run caused permanent brain damage. Seriously… Brendan thought my jokes were bad last night, but I wish that was my only problem right now.
Do long runs mess everyone up?
I have been pretty MIA lately, but I am here to confirm that this has just been a test (to see which readers are so dedicated that they will still look at my blog) and will not be a recurring pattern. My test confirmed for me that I have 1.5 dedicated readers: my mom and Maryanne. Maryanne is not a subscriber, so she gets .5 points.
Ok the real reason for the lack of posts is that I didn’t know what to write about, I was pretty busy at home, and my running feels pretty LAME-O. Here is what’s up in my life
I am home again with Brendan, who I missed very much. He missed
the way I fill the fridge while he is at work me, also. I go home to a completely empty fridge and a crippled boyfriend who apparently can’t walk to the grocery store when he runs out of food. He sprained his ankle!! oh no!! I feel really bad for him. I would take a picture of his foot, but it looks like he pooped on it because the bruise is so dark and big, and I am afraid you won’t believe me if I tell you it’s a bruise. Instead I took a picture of these…
These are the fun Gerber Daisies he got me at the farmer’s market at Google yesterday. We were celebrating 5 years and 2 months together. Aren’t we
LAME-O so cute!! I am pretty sure most people should stop celebrating the “month anniversaries” after a year or so. But we are just so in love… lol…
In other news today… I am still in love with Starbucks! Is that news?
But for REAL!! Did you know that if you register your Starbucks card and then lose it somewhere in a purse or dark closet you can just transfer the funds to one of your other registered Starbucks cards!! Hello!? BEST DAY EVER… I feel like I just found Starbucks money on the street…. muah haha. Look at that caramel drizzle doing its thing… IT’S SO CARAMEL-Y!!!
Finally, for your daily dose of running… I went out to run 10 this morning… by morning I mean that I meant to wake up in the morning to beat the heat, but I walked out the door at 11:30. Prime skin burning time on the bay! WOOT! I’m too smart. So, I ran 4 because I am really committed to my training plan. Oh shoot. I ran 4 and I think it was a good choice because I have a hard training weekend coming up this weekend and it would have been stupid for me to try to make up for not running 10 earlier this week. My next post will be about wtf I am going to do about this training plan that I am officially not following!! grr.
And… here is a picture of me for good measure.
