Well my 11 miler ended up being only a 6 miler but that’s okay. I’m totally going to get rocked by this half marathon next weekend! Honestly though, and I hate to complain, but I am just so worn out. The past two weeks have totally rocked me, between moving across the country, starting a new job, living on a couch, moving into my own apartment on my own, flying to new york city, flying back, running, blogging….everything. I’m BEAT! It took everything I had to pull myself out of bed this morning (my house was a lovely 63 degrees when I woke up and my bed was soooo warm!), get on my running clothes and get out the door. I sort of feel like I want to go sleep and wake up in two weeks. I need to rest.
Alas, I DID pick myself up though and get out this morning because I knew my race was next weekend and this was my last “long” run. I had an almond butter, pumpkin butter and half banana sandwich before heading out the door—
My run took me down through downtown Healdsburg and up Dry Creek Road, where the views were spectacular and the hills were intense. I could probably have kicked my own butt even more and pushed myself to do the whole 11 but I just was too tired. More than anything I want to go to a yoga class but there just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day right now and I have to work again tomorrow. Hopefully one day next week I can go to Bikram…that would be nice.
After an hour of running, I trekked back up the winding staircase to my cold attic (need to figure out this heat situation, asap) and had a yogurt bowl with a cup of TJs yogurt, the other half of my banana, half a small melon from the farm, some puffins and pumpkin butter.
And I made a much better cup of french press, minus the explosion. Sipping while I stand and blog in my little bubble of wireless internet:
MAJOR laundry to do today as well as more cleaning and unpacking…hopefully I’ll find out today if I actually am staying here or if I need to start looking for another home. Keeps things interesting, no? A HUGE thank you to Star, who created this gorgeous new header for the blog!!! Thank you so much; I love it!
Time to hit the showers!
