Hey, look! My rehearsal dinner dress came!
Or, you know, not. The invoice described this as a “white eyelet dress” from Victoria’s Secret…but yeah, it’s not. This is what I ordered:
Decidedly different. Hmm. Methinks I’ll be on the phone with Ms. Victoria tomorrow.
Anyway, I was a bad blogger and forgot to take pictures pretty much all day. It was really busy at work—I’m going on an overnight quick trip tomorrow and had a bunch of stuff to finish up today. I had a green monster, some Annie’s Bernie-O’s, and one of Susan’s homemade protein bars at various intervals throughout the day!
After work, I went to run. Good lord, was it hot in the gym! I have to say, I enjoyed it not being pitch black before and after my workout—it was nice to walk out to my car in sunshine. Anyway, today I did 5 miles, like so:
- 1 mile at 6.0 mph
- 1 mile at 6.1 mph
- 1 mile at 6.2 mph
- 1 mile at 6.3 mph
- 1 mile at 6.4 mph
For a grand total of 5 miles in about 48:15. I was really working hard at the end but it felt good to sweat. My glutes, hamstrings, and inner thighs (what’s that muscle called?) have also been quite sore from Saturday’s random lifting circuit, and it was nice to get the blood pumping and get them moving again.
Okay, you guys. I have to announce something. I think I’ve earned my first proverbial running merit badge:
A black toenail! The black part is getting darker and larger every time I run. It felt funny for awhile a few weeks ago, but doesn’t hurt anymore and is just getting uglier and uglier.
Is it weird that I am kind of feeling particularly badass about this? I know, I know, I should want pretty toenails for my wedding…but…this is so much cooler. I have kind of a morbid fascination with various athletic injuries and the general weird shit running does to our bodies, and this is my own mark of honor.
Anyway. 1 yes RSVP, 3 nos.
The human body and the things sports do to it: cool or gross? Discuss.
