I could not have slept better last night. 8 hours is almost unheard of. But Monday was packed. So it is completely understandable how I was buried under the covers before 9:15.
Considering the holiday, none of it was spent relaxing. Then again, I guess that’s what Sunday was for.
I started out the day with a solid 8-mile run. Yeah, after Saturday’s not-so-long run, I finally got it in! With an 8:42 pace, nonetheless. No issues or anything. Unless you count the stares from the people in the management office wondering how much longer I’ll be on the treadmill.
I’m pretty proud of the run. Saturday’s struggles left me a little nervous. My endurance seems to be building back up without too much of a problem- given that I keep away from the cocktails (um, duh?). So I will take it as a success! Score!
After that, the errands began. A couple of years ago, I found a tailor/seamstress about 20 minutes away that I absolutely love and go to her for everything.
However, I forgot to check when her shop is open. Turns out Monday is not one of those times. My dress is being held hostage until next Saturday. Grrr.
After driving 20 minutes out of my way, I grumpily headed straight to the mall. If you know me, you know I’m not a big mall person. So spending almost 5 hours walking around in it (after that 8-mile run), you can imagine my mood. Especially when coming home empty-handed. My strategy now is to not find a new dress for my Vegas vacation, but to possibly re-accessorize what I already have.
Hopefully my creativity will help me out on this one. Because I’m usually not a big accessory person. More of a shoes girl.
Speaking of shoes… I’m excited to be breaking some new ones in this week.Because my Omni ProGrids I got fitted for last year were the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned, the exact same pair was ordered. It just took a while because I dislike buying anything online unless I can hunt down a good sale on it. Ironically, the time spent hunting online didn’t bother me nearly as much. Shopping online really is so much easier.Although I’ll honestly say I prefer girly colors, I found the green/silver version for about $50 cheaper than the pink/silver and $15 cheaper than the blue/silver.
They’re running shoes. I’ll get over it. And pocket that extra saved cash. Thank you…
Try not to let Tuesday get you down!
