THIS is my fourth Friday back to work. Some random thoughts so far:
-it’s exhausting being on your feet all day
-I really wish I could be barefoot. Like every day.
-sometimes I wear boots with my dresses just so I can hide my compression socks. Hehe.
-I really miss my routine the morning of running/breakfast/second breakfast/laying out in the sunshine/Reading good books… The only thing I have read since I went back to work is blogs which I’m fine with because I love reading blogs. I just wish there were two of me to read the great books and the great blogs. And maybe second me could do a little more blogging too. Anybody know how to clone?
THIS is my new scarf!!!! I haven’t even worn it yet but I’m so obsessed with it. I love all things anchors/navy blue/red. Sooooo perfect!!!!! I got one for my SIL too and. Can’t wait to Be Twinning with my BFF!!!!
THIS weekend I really have to clean my house. I’m seriously slacking. Maybe second me can do all the things I don’t have time to do : clean, cook, laundry, dust, vacuum… Or I could pay someone. Hmmm. I don’t think my husband would love that idea. But we’ll see.
THIS is my new song favorite of the week:
THIS happened this week too.
THIS is my current dilemma. If you could call it that. Maybe we should call it a decision instead. Yes a “decision”: Way back in July, I registered to run a September half marathon. Funny how time creeps up on you because this half marathon is tomorrow!!! Although I really am in the best shape of my life and I think this could really be a PR shot for me, I am pretty freaking tired .
The race is a little more than an hour away from me and it starts at 7 AM. The whiny
bitch brat in me wants to sleep in and run a 20 miler around my house-Along the course for my next marathon (Baystate)
I know… I know… That is literally the worst excuse ever not to do a race (esp one that you have already paid for). I truly can’t make up my mind and I have been debating for about a week and a half now on what to do.
Let’s look at the pros and cons shall we?
-it’s a Saturday half marathon. I love Saturday races. I don’t like taking a day off during the weekend from running. And the Sunday race means I have to take Saturday off in order to be at peak potential for Sunday. I picked this race specifically because it was a Saturday.
-I have been running speed work sessions like it’s my job. 800s, 400s, tempos, mile repeats– I own them.
-I love to race.
-this weekend is actually the most perfect weekend I could do a half since next weekend is my last long run before I begin to taper.
-I have to get up really early and I have to leave my house by 5 AM.. The whiny girl in me does NOT like this and she wants to sleep in. (((wahhh, poor little marathon girl)))
-running along my marathon course could really benefit me… Although I am also doing my last long run on the course next weekend. Decisions decisions.
If only all decisions were THIS easy!!!
Okay so there’s definitely more pros than cons, but let’s take a vote…
do you vote:
–yes to running the half! Stop being a NEGATIVE NANCY and just DO IT already.
–NO, you Silly girl… sleep in and go run a 20 along your marathon course!
Tell me something random, and please by all means vote!
