Saturday I had the BEST long run. I ran a route I had never run before and everything felt fresh and new. It was awesome. Even cooler was that my garmin clocked “16.00” just as I was crossing into my driveway!
My mileage totals for the week:50.4
This upcoming week I will be doing two different speed sessions:one day of sprints or yassos, one day of a tempo run. I would like to hit 53 miles, minimum. It’s time to get back to the 60 mile weeks again!!
I went to bed very late on Friday night, and had no plans Saturday morning except to go running, but of course-I was up early and could not fall back to sleep. I started thinking randomly about how when I was younger-I could sleep until whenever, but now, I can’t for the life of me sleep past 6-7am. SO IRRITATING.
Of course, this one little thought led to several other thoughts of how life changes as you get (a little tiny bit) older.
….even if I’m tired enough to sleep until 9 on a Saturday, “I should be’s” wake me up. “I should be out running” or “I should be up cleaning the house” , and it is, therefore, impossible to sleep in.
….my gray hairs are coming in faster. (((sigh))) the only person who thinks is cool is my hairdresser…
….a good nights sleep sounds like heaven, and so does the thought of waking up to a magically cleaned house.
….I will willingly clean the gross drain stopper in my sink when it gets caught with food from washed dishes. –> THIS right here is how you know you have crossed over into adulthood.
….I want to always be wearing comfortable shoes.
….the idea of having (my own) child is beginning to seem like “a lot of fun”. It used to sound, to me, like “a lot of work.”
….I cry over those dam military commercials where the parents are reunited with their kids-and I am welling up just thinking about watching one of those!
….house projects/Home Depot shopping/actually excite me!! I find myself daydreaming of ways to spruce up my yard, or house!
how do YOU know you’re getting older?
