Ran outside in Newport Beach
flat, paved bike path
Since I took nearly a month off from any serious running, I want to build up my mileage and endurance again which means some longer training runs.
I know I can still run a marathon, but man, it didn’t feel like that this morning. I’ve always thought that it’s easier to stay in shape than to get back into shape.
I really struggled the last 2 miles and threw out every inspirational thought I could just to finish…
Think of how good you’ll feel when you’re done… You’ve ran twice this distance before, you can do 14 today… Burn off all those pretzel chips you ate right before bed last night… Make it hurt, it’s not gonna kill you.
It wasn’t pretty but I’m happy I stuck with it instead of walking the last mile like I wanted to.
I was pimping black and pink hard today:
Pink Shoelaces – Fit Approach
Socks – Pro Compression
Shorts – 26.2 Apparel
Ripples and dipples – all mine
Oh, you know you wanna see the cellulite. Here you go:
I ran the Mountain to Sea trail near Back Bay and it was great running weather: misty, foggy and windy on the way back. It also did a fabulous number on my hair.
Luckily I have a party to attend tonight so I won’t waste this gorgeous ‘do on nothing.
When I got home I had to get down to business: cleaning the house while the man was at a meeting. We’re both leaving on Friday for about 10 days so we have to leave the house spotless or he’ll probably die.
Does anyone else’s dog HATE the vacuum cleaner? Marni goes wild over it. She’ll stand right next to it and stare until I move it and then she starts biting it.
She was biting it so hard that it fell over.
Does your pet do anything weird?
Marni really doesn’t except for the vacuum attacking. She doesn’t chew on anything, but she does “hunt” for rabbits, lizards, or birds.
Do you feed your dog table scraps or human food?
I don’t because our vet told us not to, but I know the boy does. I see him sneaking her crap all the time, and then I try to guilt-shame him by saying that she’s going to die of a heart attack.
Anyways I cleaned the whole house, not that hard when you live in a doll house, but I was sweating when vacuuming the stairs. Probably because I had to fend off a 4 lb werewolf.
