Sorry I’ve been MIA. I’ve been busy trying to get some things in order. But, don’t worry, I’ll get you all caught up.
Wednesday is usually the day my best friend and I go for a walk in the Park. Last week we realized that with Autumn quickly approaching, the sun sets pretty early in the evening. We knew that walking in the dark again was out of the question. So, we decided to stay in and workout with Bob on the Biggest Loser Cardio Max DVD. We did level 1, and encouraged each other all the way through until the end. It was a great workout and we were both really sweating. However, we might have to figure out a better place to put the coffee table, because 2 big girls doing cardio in my living room needed a little more space….My plan was to stick to my running schedule and go to the gym after we finished, but I was too tired, and didn’t go.
Friday, at work we were allowed to dress up in costumes to celebrate Halloween. I work at a very conservative law firm and we are never allowed to wear jeans or have casual days. So, all of us paralegals got together and decided that we would wear jeans, and dress up as “paralegals who work at a law firm with casual Fridays.” It was kinda funny. The human resources people thought it was creative, and we all knew with the workload they give us, there was no way they were going to send us all of us home….One of the attorneys dressed up as Flo from the Progressive Car Insurance commercials. Another senior attorney dressed as the Chilean Miner and 2 associates dressed up too, one dressed as his wife and the other as his girlfriend. It was sooo funny they had the signs and everything. It was quite the conversation piece…if you don’t know the story, during a candle light vigil for the trapped miners, one of the wives was shocked to hear another woman chanting her husband’s name. I guess it’s actually more sad than funny…It was just funny that they chose that as a Halloween costume.…Another guy was actually a little scary dressed as Michael Myers from the Halloween movies….Friday night, I cooked Parmesan crusted tilapia, mixed veggies and rice. It was so good and filling. I stayed at home and watched a movie because my sinuses are bothering me AGAIN. I’ve never had this many repeat sinus issues in my life.
Saturday afternoon my little sister and I went to the park. She told me she was “happy to have her sister back” …referring to the fact that Mr. Man and I are no longer dating, and we get to spend more time together…. I ran for just a little bit, and then couldn’t run anymore. I don’t know really why…was it this allergy cold sinus thing? Was I just being lazy? Was it because my ankle was hurting? Do I have a mental block with week 3? I don’t know; I was disappointed with myself. I didn’t feel like giving up or anything, we still walked about 2 miles, but I just didn’t run. I’m so glad that I signed up for the Team in Training. The kick off is next week-end, and then the sessions with the trainer will start. I think a change of scene and a new plan will get me motivated again.
Today, I went to church. My plan was to go to the studio afterwards and create Week 3 for the bridge to 10k, but that’s nearly impossible with my nasal voice. I sound like a frog and I’m constantly blowing my nose and making gross throat noises. I don’t actually feel sick, I sound worse than it actually is…..Well that’s about it. I hope to get back to running tomorrow.
