FIRST: I want to give frantic spirit fingers toward Jen who is running (floating down?) her first marathon this weekend! In a year of some sort of terrible marathon curse, it looks like some crazy phenomenon called an atmospheric river is supposed to occur right above her race. All I know is that the Today Show peeps are broadcasting from San Francisco and they look drenched.
Also, remember to enter my sunglasses giveaway! Giuseppe thinks these would look great on you!
Also, The Sunglasses Shop is running a 25% off designer brand sale right now, so if you are looking for a pair of sunglasses for yourself or for a present, this would be a great time to buy! They have all the details on the website. When you’re buying a $250 pair of sunglasses, 25% off is a significant amount.
I’ve been noticing around blog land that everyone is severely unmotivated this week.
I’m afraid I’m one of those people. I haven’t felt like running. And when I have run, I’ve felt really clumsy and awkward like I don’t know how to use my legs, and I haven’t felt fast or energized.
Thing is, this happened to me last year too. But I thought that because I’m so much more of a “runner” now, I would stay motivated, and since I’m all about accomplishing crazy goals, that I would be completely committed to this training cycle.
But I’m not. And Aaron really isn’t. So, we’re a lazy bunch between the two of us. I also haven’t been to the pool since that breakthrough session last week where I kinda was able to put my head underwater for longer than a fast dip.
It has turned into a vicious cycle. I come home, decide that fried food/cheesy food sounds better than running, gorge, get food coma, fall asleep on the couch, and wake up pretty depressed about the whole thing. We skipped THREE workouts this week.
I’ve decided that it is some biological/instinctual hibernation mode thing, and it has nothing to do with us! Right?!
AT LEAST progress is being made on the Gingerbread House Project! All the baking is done!
Also, sidenote:, the other night we were running around our neighborhood, and two cop cars turned the corner and turned off their lights like they were trying to sneak up on someone. We were wondering if it was us?
Because we usually run at night and as far as I can tell we’re the only runners within a 3-4 block radius, I wonder if sometimes people see two people sprinting down the street and think we must be burglars. I mean, no one in their right mind would be outside exercising, especially now that it gets pretty cold once the sun goes down.
I would not be surprised if one of these days we get tackled down in a citizens arrest attempt.
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
