Running was brutal today. Brutal as in, I never found my stride, never found my breathing, never found my “zone.” And as a reward for actually finishing the run I had planned on making happen, I got a really sweet knot in my left calf.
Like I said – brutal.
I may or may not be self-medicating at the moment with a glass of wine and a plate of chocolate, that truth be told, I am inhaling like a professional. A brownie bite from the freezer may or may not be next on the agenda. I just can’t make any promises.
If I was shopping it out, this is what I would be running-wild in this week. Even though it’s sunny this week. ESPECIALLY since it’s sunny this week. Because we’ve finally reached the perfect summer weather-equilibrium: warm during the day, cool at night. And let’s get serious – this lady has a big girl job that involves being inside under fluorescent lights for ~9 hours a day. Which means that the night is mine.
But as we all know…
…I’m not exactly in-need of more clothing at the moment. So I’ll be holding off on any additional shopping until mid-September because Lord only knows that my body will be a totally different size (again) and like, most of this will not be useful for the colder months. Sometimes, it’s important to be in-touch with reality.
