Not too much to post about today.  Had a tough run this morning, but only because I was NOT feeling it.  I cut it short to 4 and the last 2 miles actually felt so strong that I was tempted to keep going and get a “better distance” in for today.  I had to (out loud) remind myself that I felt like crap the first 2 and I did SO MUCH yesterday.  Don’t push it. For realz yo.

Plus I think all the working out, sleeping too little and increase in stress has been taking a toll on my immune system.  I can feel the chills in my spine (not good!) but I’m afraid that all my go-go-going is what’s keeping the cold/bug I’m fending off from knocking me out.  Quite the catch-22: if I stop all my craziness I’ll get sick but if I keep doing what I’m doing I’ll eventually break my immune system.  Boo!

I had jazz today too and it was intense.  We’re putting together a pretty (in my eyes) challenging couple of combinations that take all my brain power to master. At one point today I couldn’t even hear the music because I was concentrating so hard on not faltering.  Lots of kicks, spins and tricky rhythms.  Naturally my friend who is in the class is a dancer (and actually on the Dance Co.) makes me wicked jelly because she makes it look easy.  Not fair.  But she did tell me that if I were to put her on the road to run, I’d be doing the same thing to her.  Heh.

The rest of my day has been blah.  I’ve just been feeling a little aimless.  I don’t have a race I’m training for.  I don’t know what I’m going to be doing a year from now.  And day-to-day I feel like I’ve been bogged down with annoying stuff to do: email/call people, pick up forms.  Nothing too exciting.

I’m desperately hoping that by the end of the week or weekend I’ll have something exciting to report! If life decides to be nice to me I’ll have some very pleasant news re: my life, running etc.  Trust me it’s killing me not to spill everything to y’all but if I don’t tell anyone the deets then if things fall through I can make something up and say it’s exciting heh 🙂

Hopefully this post didn’t come across as all down because I’m not all down. Just…meh.  In any case tmrw is a speedwork day of some type so, whether it goes good or bad, I should be more animated 😉

Although on a really good note: I did one of my loads of laundry (the line dry stuff) so my room smells ah-maz-ing right now!



  1. My days have been like that too. I feel like I have a lot to do, but nothing is really “important”. You know what I mean?

  2. Keep your head up!!! Blah days like that make you appreciate the vast majority of uber productive days you’ve been having lately.

  3. I hear you on the busy work. I’m a leader for two groups at my church and sometimes I have so.many.e-mails to keep up with. It’s annoying. I’m doing a ton of stuff- but in the end it’s just dumb e-mails.

  4. It’s hard to keep up with the running when life is so hectic and crazy! But the details are kinda what makes it all fun! Have a good rest of your week.

  5. Good Luck! Everyone has bad days, treat yourself to something. A magazine, a bubble bath, a bottle of wine. Whatever turns your fancy.
