Is it normal that the first thing that I get excited for about having a day off from work is the fact that I get to fit in a good run. This means that I don’t have to rush around the house like a madwoman, I can get in a good stretch afterwards and maybe even an ice bath. Let’s get crazy and say that I will actually have the time to make something delicious to refuel with and maybe even be somewhat hygienic.
Doesn’t the world understand that we as runners need to work less and have less responsibilities so that we can train properly?
Yesterday was a good day of food. I had breakfast before church but then Billy made some crepes for us to eat while watching The Office and preparing for my BIG INTERVIEW (the highlight of my year).
We went over to my parent’s house because we hadn’t seen the little crazies for quite some time.
My left leg is now a lot stronger than my right after a night of carrying her everywhere. This better not cause any imbalances in my legs and therefore an injury.
We had roast, brown rice and green beans for dinner but the picture wasn’t pretty so I decided to skip it, it was quite delicious.
Some people chose to have cereal for dessert but because I am so wise and know that cereal counts as a snack and not a dessert,
I chose a lemon bar for dessert.
When I go to wash my face and brush my teeth for the night I really love it when I find powdered sugar on my lips and syrup from the crepes that morning in my hair.
My dad asked us last night what we would want if we could have one small indulgence of our choice:
1. My dad: Smucker’s Current Jelly always stored in the pantry.
2. My brother: A brand new pair of socks every day.
3. My sister: To be a member of the Harry and David Fruit of the Month Club
4. Billy: A new computer every six months.
5. Mom: Having someone else clean her house once a week.
6. Me: A massage weekly along with a facial and a pedicure (does that count as a small indulgence?)
What would be the small indulgence that you would chose to have?!?!
What are your plans for today? Any special things going on your day off (if you have it off)?
