Cloudy with a chance of Moody
On my beloved training schedule that I so dearly love to doodle on, I've started jotting down notes on how I feel. What can I say, I'm a training emoticon. Last Friday I woke up with a "f all this training" attitude. I threw a toddler-sized fit. I didn't wanna run, bike, swim or even think about physical activity ever again. Sew me to the sectional, I was ready to swear myself to the life of sofa queen and adopt a daytime hobby like bedazzling clothes for pet ferrets. Yes. Obviously signs of burn out. It's also been cloudy here. A lot. Warm, but cloudy. On Saturday morning the sun came out and I wanted to run 12 miles. Go figure. It was as if the literal light turned on. I hate that the weather has this kinda hold on me.
Sun out. Happy.
Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who's the biggest manipulating moron of them all?
I have a love / hate relationship with the Bachelor. I watched the first episode and then quit watching for awhile because I couldn't take the drama. Then I started watching again and now, well, I might as well see it through to the end. I'm no quitter. I've never quit a race and I won't give up on Ben and Courtney either. We want to believe that these Bachelor and Bachelorettes are held to some moral standard but in reality, they just wanna enjoy their 10 minutes of fame with someone that's just as nuts as they are.
Prediction: Ben picks Courtney and that they're broken up by the final episode. I'm also praying that she'll do the finger gun thing again when they bring them back together.
On a more rational note....
18 Days till my next race!
A 23K trail run in Western KY. I find this distance to be both obscure and appropriate because I've never run a trail race that's ended up being close to the exact distance that it was advertised as. Now, this could be my fault, I'm not great at math and I've known to make a pit stop for a potty break in the brush.
