Okay. So, when do I get my life back?
I have just been running and running and running lately, literally and figuratively! It’s tiring. Also, I forgot my camera today. Bad blogger. So you get iPhone photos today. I’m sorry.
Morning snack. I really very much like these Kashi bars with the fruit sludge inside. They’re delicious.
Lunch was some Annie’s Bernie-O’s, along with some Greek yogurt. I like to think they’re the more mature, health conscious version of Spaghetti-Os, but really, they’re shaped like bunnies. Anyway, they’re delicious and I am not ashamed.
And an afternoon snack:
Candy season is almost over, folks. It goes from Halloween candy to Crimmus candy to Valentine’s candy to Easter candy, and then we are in a veritable candy famine until then. I had to get at least one Reese’s egg in under the wire.
Running today? Technically, I was supposed to do 3 miles, but 3.1 is more fun because I can call it a 5K which sounds much longer. So a 5K it was. And I was determined to break 28:00. My BIG speed goal is to break 27:00 on a 5K, and not long ago this seemed completely impossible to me. But now it’s right around the corner!
- Mile 1: 6.7 mph pace
- Mile 2: 6.8 mph pace
- Mile 3: 6.9 mph pace
- Mile .1: 7.2 mph pace
Total? 5K in 27:42. Boom goes the dynamite.
Anyway, tonight is nuts. I have to pack, and I just realized I really have no casual shoes appropriate for my trip to Chicago, so I’m going to the shoe store with Tim in a bit. Why do I have to pack tonight, you ask? Oh, because tomorrow I have to run 11 miles after work…and my flight leaves at the asscrack of dawn on Friday morning. I seriously feel like I don’t remember which way is up anymore.
Current RSVP count: 53 yes, 20 no. And someone bought our cookware off our registry! Woo!
Finally, Tim caught Buckley in the act of dog food theft. (He has his high beams on.) Eating the dog’s food is his latest interest. Strange cat.
Anyway. Shameless plug: check out me talking about how awesome I am over on Run, Eat, Repeat! Monica’s a rockstar and I have started listening to Pitbull when I run because of her.
What’s your favorite candy-related holiday? I’ve gotta go Easter on this one, strictly because of Cadbury eggs.
