No really… it’s fine. I’m just dandy.
Maybe a little agitated.
Ok fine. It’s to the point where if you have anything sarcastic to say about the wreck that will be my race in less than 2 weeks, you’re just not going to bring it up.
That’s where we’re at.
I skipped my long run this weekend and opted for the elliptical since my leg has been feeling funky. Apparently they had blizzard conditions in Missouri over the weekend and the temps show no sign of rising in the near future. And we all know I have not done a good job with the factors I can control (ie trail running and pace time sucking).
This little hobby of mine is going AWESOME. This little half marathon is gonna be so.much.fun.
Rant over. Moving on.
No worries, mom and certain friends who I know read this, I will not be having a meltdown. I’m just annoyed for the time being. We’re close to moving into the “acceptance” stage of what’s all going down.
And we’re popping calcium pills like it’s our job. No, I don’t know where I stand on the whole multi-vitamin thing or if they really help that much, but at this point- why not?
At least the weekend kept me busy.
I baked (more on that later). Because sugar makes me happy. And possibly because I was going to dinner at someone’s house and felt the need to bring something. But mostly because I like sugar.
Had a 5-year-old challenge me in bananagrams (it’s a word-building game) and talk smack on my accent. Yes. Taking heat from a 5-year-old. Hilarious.
Watched The Adjustment Bureau with Mon (like we had planned to on Wednesday before the weather got weird). It was really good. A bit of a thinker, but not as intense as something like Inception. Watching Matt Damon run around for two hours didn’t hurt, either…
Dealt with Kansas making it to the Elite Eight as we were watching on Friday night, but at least they swiftly got the boot before the Final Four. Whew. I never would have heard the end of that one. There are WAY too many Mizzou haters in these parts…
A nice, well-rounded weekend, wouldn’t you say?
I’m going to be completely throwing off the half marathon training plan this week and add in an extra rest day or two. What I’m feeling seems weirdly familiar to how my leg felt last year after running the Shamrock Shuffle when I probably shouldn’t have (oops). So I’m trying to be smarter about it. Rest will be good for me. *Scowl*
Ok fine, I’ll probably be doing sit-ups and arm weights like it’s my job. Unlike my legs, at least my core strength will never fail me.
Besides, otherwise I just get restless.
