Thanks for cheering on our climbing efforts, guys!
And now that I look back on it, laying on those steps may have been the most unsanitary thing I’ve ever done.
Guess I got caught up in the moment.
Anyhoo, I’ve gotten really good at this whole lazy Sunday thing. The only time I really ventured out of the apartment complex was to go with my friend and neighbor Bailey to pick up my car from the bar we went to the night before. We had cabbed it home after the show (safety first, kids).
We giggled a little bit about the ordeal- Bailey mentioned how sad it was that the only number we got was the cab driver’s (he was awesome and should probably be around every time we need to be taken home).
I reasoned that it was for the best that we didn’t get or give out any digits.
One thing I love about the particular bar we went to is that it attracts a huge variety of people.
One thing I dislike about the bar is that it attracts a huge variety of people.
It’s a blessing and a curse.
Last night was not a good scene for me. I mean… unless you’re into 35-year-old men with Justin Bieber haircuts. Seriously dude- even Justin Bieber hates his haircut. And he’s 16. Don’t do it.
No I’m all off track… where was I?
Oh yeah, that was the only time I left the complex…
Which was fine. I had stuff to do. Like make a grocery list and not actually go grocery shopping. And start laundry, but leave the folding for today instead.
It’s really a surprise that I even made it to the workout room in my complex.
That’s not true. Considering I was only doing half of everything else I planned to do yesterday, there was some energy that needed to be burned.
An intense 40 minutes on the elliptical. Sweatin’ all those toxins out. ;) Throw in some resistance band work and a 30-minute walk.
That may actually be considered as a productive Sunday afterall.
I’ve been stepping it up on the elliptical a lot as of late. My training for the St. Louis Half Marathon starts next week and I’m trying to save my excitement for running. I love it. And it’s my favorite way to exercise. BUT, 12 weeks are a really long time. And there are a lot of miles to be ran. I have no problems with chillin’ out on it for a week before all that happens.
Anyone else deal with training slumps? And how do you fix it? Other than just saying to yourself, “shut up and run”? The “shut up and run” technique does work, but I’m sure it’s not the most positive reinforcement choice I could be using.
Hopefully my happy song will get me through quite a few of the runs.
Seems like an appropriate run song, yes?
I just realized that connection (running while listening to a song talking about 500 miles- in case you’re as slow as I am with catching on). Which is hilarious because it’s been a frequenter on my playlist. As in, it’s used during almost every workout. And it’s currently on the office music playlist at work. My boss laughs because I’ll take a break and sing when it comes on.
I think he realizes it’s a necessary in order for me to keep calm and sane on some days. Like Mondays.
Oh… today is Monday, huh? Well… let’s break out those itunes, shall we?
Sorry if this song gets stuck in your head for the rest of the week. Actually, no I’m not. You’ll appreciate it. And you’re welcome. :)
