And I am not happy about it. I am not upset because I didn’t hit a certain number of miles but because I didn’t stop exactly ON the mile to fulfill my OCD needs. I was happily running along continuing to enjoy my week of awesome runs when Billy came in and warned me that it snowed and that it will take me a little longer to get to work.
Hi, Utah. Remember how you were 70 degrees on Wednesday?
Being the responsible adult that I am I stopped at 7.34 miles so that I could get there on time. That .34 will bug me all day long….if only he would have come in 3 minutes earlier so I could have stopped at 7.00;) Yes, I have serious issues.
Something that made me really enjoy my run this morning was my sweet new set up.
After I finished an episode of Make It or Break It (why can’t that show be longer…43 minutes is just not long enough) I had nothing to watch and so I decided to try out reading, it worked out perfectly. That probably makes some of you sick to even think about running and reading at the same time but for some reason it doesn’t bother me. I was also listening to my favorite Mariah Carey song on repeat while reading…best combination ever.
Something else pretty tragic happened today. My prep on MWF is 2nd period (I don’t have a prep T, TH) and as I was reaching into my lunch bag to get out my string cheese and crackers I couldn’t find the cheese anywhere. I started to panic. Why me? I put on my coat, headed out in the blizzard to go to Walmart (closer than home) to get my beloved cheese and I lived happily ever after.
Hallelujah. Spring Break started 6 minutes ago.
Ryan Hall is making a documentary all about his training for the 2012 Olympics. Billy and I LOVE running documentaries and the fact that it is about Ryan makes it even better. Here is a short little clip from his website about the film and it makes me want to go run in the rain while running uphill with a 4 minute mile pace:
And look what you get if you donate lots of mula:
Looks like we know where our next two (okay, 3) months of paychecks will be going. Billy, we are going to have a blast running around Arizona for a day with Ryan Hall, I bet he likes froyo too.
What factor makes you cut your runs short the most?
Anyone else get some weird weather today?
What is the greatest thing that has happened to you so far today?
