My Life the Past Couple of Weeks
January 10, 2013
1.) Plantar fasciitis. My half marathon training is on hold, has been on hold for the past couple of weeks, and my hopes of running the Hampton Half at the end of February are becoming more and more bleak. I’m starting to think I’m not meant to run further than a 10k. Sigh. I ran 15 feet to catch the T the other day, and my foot flared up so bad, I was limping the rest of the day.
2.) Yoga. Yep, that’s what I said…yoga! Hot yoga, too. Bridget dragged me to a Slow Flow class, and I’ve been three times since. That might not seem like a lot to you, but this is huge for me. Slow flow is my jam right now. I’m terrible at it, but I feel great at the end, and the class is only 75 minutes, so it doesn’t give me time to hate everyone in it by the end.
3.) Giant apples. Literally, almost the size of my head. Or at least the size of my hand. Pretty sure I can make an entire pie with this bad boy:
4.) My weight. Lack of running is making me think I’m gaining weight at an alarming rate of speed. I’m trying to rein in these errant thoughts.
5.) This blog. Call it winter blues, my hurt foot, or lack of motivation, but I’ve had no desire to post here. Sorry guys, it is what it is.
6.) Vacation planning. Joe and I want to plan a trip for the spring. So far, our front runners are Iceland, a road trip up the Pacific Northwest coast, or Alaska. Other ideas have included Austin, Texas, another trip to Sedona, and Charleson, SC (I’ve been, Joe has not.) Any other ideas?
7.) Sunset Cantina margaritas. I’ve got dinner plans with a friend tonight, and I plan pretending it’s 85 degrees and sunny while sipping a mango marg over ice.
8.) Working from home. I work from home every Friday now, so Margarita Thursdays are allowed. Don’t judge me. My foot hurts.
