Remember when I said that having both boys in school would leave me lots of time to blog. WRONG! I don’t really know where my time goes. I don’t.
I think I’m in week 10 of half marathon training. I’d like to catch you up on my training, but those posts are boring. And this one would be REALLY boring because my training has pretty much sucked lately. I need to find my mojo. I vaguely remember having a slump during this part of the training plan last time around. I need to snap out of it and put running higher on my priority list.
If you really do want to see how my training has gone these last three weeks, you can check out my Daily Mile account. There’s a little widget on the right side over there. Ok…so it’s pretty big as far as widgets go. Right now it’s telling me I’m lame and that I’ve only done 3 miles so far this week. LAME!
Anyway, so what else has been going on besides NOT running that has kept me from updating this little blog. Well, I start job number two tomorrow and had to jump through all the pre-employment hoops. This included a pre-employment physical in a doctor’s office that I’m pretty sure is the biggest time suck I have ever encountered in my life. I waited an hour for an appointment that took 5 minutes. And then two days later I waited 45 minutes to have a nurse look at my arm and say, “Nope, you don’t have TB!” Thanks, but I could have told you that. I think TB would have been apparent on all these runs I like to do.
I also went in the search of pants. Here’s the good news…I am officially a size FOUR. I have NEVER been a size 4. NEVER EVER. So that’s exciting. The bad news…I’m short. I have big thighs. Boot cut looks silly on me. Skinny pants seem to be made for runner legs, but even the ankle ones touch the floor. Ugh. I finally caved and bought ankle jeggings from Walmart. They were clearance for $5. Are you a jeggings fan? I’m kind of in love with them. Maybe I’m just destined to never find normal khaki pants that will fit me every again. Embrace the jeggings!!
I’ve also been doing a bit of this lately. I hurt my neck over the weekend. I’m blaming my hydration pack and sleeping REALLY WRONG. Rice krispie sounds were heard from my neck when I awoke and then pain that rivaled labor exploded on the left side of my neck. It was BAD. The solution appeared to be muscle relaxer (I’m floating!), my trusty microwave heat pack, and a dog in my lap. Neck pain cured…after about 72 hours of resting.
So that’s my exciting life. I promise to blog more once I figure out how to balance this crazy schedule of mine. Yeah yeah…promises promises!
