Yesterday was for sure a sick day. Kevin was sweet enough to pick up lunch for us after he got out of class and we spent the day reading and watching T.V. together! I didn't take a picture of it, but I had a turkey sandwich for lunch- again. I do not know what is up with me, lately, but I have just been feeling the turkey sandwiches. I think I am channeling my childhood on this one. I used to love turkey sandwiches as a kid!
What was I reading? Well Runner's World, of course! This issue was made for me, I am convinced, because of all the crud I have been going through with my calf/ankle. Oh yeah- I also finally painted my nails so now my phalenges don't look like they have been soaking in sweat all day. Delicious.
This morning, I made sure not to set my alarm and sleep until I woke up- which was 8AM. Ugh. I know this may seem like sleeping in to most of you gloriously dedicate folk who wake up at 5AM everyday, but I wasn't feeling it. I had a 10AM wake up call on my mind, but I guess with a week full of early alarms, I a doomed to be a grown up and wake up before 9AM.
I am planning on taking things slow and taking today as another rest day in terms of working out. I guess it was a good thing that I was able to get in a workout Sunday through Thrusday this week- seeing as I fell off my healthy rocker Thursday night.
With the Surf City Half tomorrow, I am super conflicted. This is the first race that I will have run where I just couldn't find motivation to run all week. Maybe it was because I was feeling kind of icky, but I am just so nervous for tomorrow! I am not acting like myself in terms of pumping myself up to race. To make matters worse, I keep going back and forth between 2 options- Do I run the race for fun with Shanaz? Or do I push it and try to PR?
I know that I need to just take time today to focus my brain, talk to my running partner, and make a decision. Either way, I love racing so I know I will have a good time! I just need to remember that running should be a run way to enjoy fresh air, exercise, and push yourself out of your comfort zone!
Ugh. Sometimes I wish I wasn't so competitive. And sometimes I wish I could just make a decision and stick with it. But then I think about how awesome competing is and I throw that wish out the window! The lackof decision making? Ehh I haven't been able to find a good use for that lovely personality trait, just yet.
I forgot to comment yesterday, but today I made up for it by commenting on 2 new blogs I found!
- I was intrigued by Girl Meets World right away- but for some strange reason never read her blog before?! I do not know how this is possible because it seems like I would like her blog, but I guess that is the great thing about this challenge. I am finding new awesome bloggers to connect with!
- Speaking of awesome bloggers, let me just say that the number 1 thing that made me want to comment on Go The Xtra Mile was the fact that she got to review the cutest hot pink bra! HA! Please don't get me wrong, Brittany's blog seems so awesome- but I am obbsessed with hot pink, so that part didn't hurt my decision, either!
Okay, I should get going. I have a race packet to pick up! Have a wonderful Saturday and I will talk to you tomorrow!
See ya~ Kay
