So, this is your official update that, almost three weeks out, I haven’t run yet.
I think my biggest argument against the marathon lifestyle right now is the recovery time. I know I’m taking longer than most, but my goodness is this getting old.
Since I’ve turned this primarily into a running blog, I don’t know what to talk about when I’m not running. My puppy? (check! See below). Halloween? (check! See below). My intense crush on the new James Bond Theme Song? (also check! See below). But sadly I still unable to contribute to the training recaps or race recaps or even the “I’m so sad I’m not running” recaps because that’s already been covered.
Although, a couple of sprints across the living room yesterday indicate that I might be ready for a pain free run this weekend!
And of course, this happens when we have our first freeze of the season. Wednesday was 80 degrees. Today I have Giuseppe bundled up in a sweater because it is so cold! (and how many times is he going to want to come in and out of the house this morning???).
So it looks like our perfect running temperatures were wasted on me this year. Bring on the winter running gear!
I have at least been keeping active this week, but no matter what, I can’t make the elliptical feel like a good workout.
So….Basically, I just wanted to say “HI!” and share a Giuseppe picture.
And a song!
I’m pretty sure Adele was put on this earth to make a James Bond theme song. This is just so perfect.
I rarely take interest in new movies that aren’t Harry Potter or Disney, but James Bond movies create a world so glamorous and exciting that I can’t help but want to live it in and drink martinis and save the world everyday. And if Adele is there, sign me up!
In other news, Happy Halloween weekend! I haven’t dressed up in 4 years, but I’m kind of wanting to this year. (We usually don’t go out on Halloween so, I would likely be dressed up watching Hocus Pocus or Monster House and eating candy since there are no children in our neighborhood, but I always buy a bag “just in case”). I do plan on carving some super awesome pumpkins this weekend and possibly making a spooky cocktail that I find on Pinterest.
Are you dressing up this year? I need inspiration!
Good luck to everyone racing! I know a lot of people are doing fun costume runs! I’m so jealous because we have like 2 happening here this weekend. And I hope Sandy doesn’t kill the Marine Corps Marathon!
Have a great Halloween weekend!
