I’m not feeling it.
And by it, I mean anything. Blogging, running, working (especially working) all seems like too much work. Watching tv and sleeping are about all I have the energy for. I’m tired and I haven’t been able to get warm in days. I feel achy in various body parts (I’m constantly icing some part of my legs) and I’m hungry all the time.
I feel like I’m on the receiving end of a cruel joke from nature.
I guess I do have a half marathon coming up. That probably explains a lot. Emerald City Half Marathon s 9/7, which means we are less than 3 weeks away. 1 more long run and then taper time. I’m quite apprehensive about this race considering my experience last time. My short run times have gotten quite a bit faster, but my long run times still hover around 13:30/mile. Which would admittedly put my finish time under 3 hours, but still, it’s frustrating to know I can run 11:30 miles, but not for more than a few. I’m pretty sure I will be spending most of this race alone, which is disconcerting, but I’ve lived through worse, right?
And the amazing goose girl promised to meet me at undisclosed points in a goose costume.
In other news, I got lots of mail already this week:
I’ve been wanting a small belt for phone and keys for a long time, so I was pretty stoked to win this. I’ll let you know how it works.
I do believe you all are on to something living in my chimney. There were no insects in the vicinity, so I guess we need to get maintenance out here to examine the chimney for critters.
I really am planning to run another giveaway this week, but I’m struggling with my product review. Husband also claims he will write me a guest post in the near future, so things really should get interesting around here again soon.
Anyone tried a fitness video game? What did you think?
