I’ve been kind of MIA for the last few days, I guess I was kind of busy. I don’t know with what, but I must have been.
I had a great run yesterday, I had to talk myself into it, and after I was done running I was totally glad that I did! 3mi on the dreadmill, 9:01 pace, finished in 29min. Not to bad, much better then most of my dreadmill runs. I am getting back into my running groove, thank goodness.
I haven’t run yet today, don’t know that I’m going to.. I am ‘supposed’ to be doing homework right now until 3:30, then from 3:30 until Chris gets home I’m going to pick up the house.. I have to give myself a schedule otherwise I’ll sit here and do nothing.
I am signed up for 2 races in August- I forget if I’ve already told you this. I’m doing the Zoo Run Run 5k @ the Lowry Park Zoo . Then I’m doing the Ace of Clubs 10k, uhm, I think that one is in Safety Harbor. I’m excited!
I printed out a marathon training schedule. It’s extra extra long. I want to have a good long time to train so I can wrap my head around what I’m doing, and so I’ll feel fully prepared for what I want to accomplish. My half marathon pace is 8:45, obviously I doubt I could maintain that pace for 26 miles… I would like to finish in 4:15, which is a 9:45 pace. I’m not going to focus on speed/time to much as much . Especially since it’s still so far away.
I went to some garage sales this morning. I am learning that I really don’t actually like going to garage sales. I haven’t found anything while I’m out that makes me just want to go every weekend. I am still searching for nightstands for our guest room, a dresser for our guestroom, and barstools. All of which are seemingly impossible to find at garage sales, or at least the ones I go to. I ended up with 1 book by Nicholas Sparks, a vase/jar thing w/ some sand/shells & a candle in it (bc I need another vase w/ shells in it =/ ) … and 4 yankee candle tealights… yah, not really impressive.
Then I went to Goodwill hoping they might have something I’m looking for.. Well, I did get a pair of shoes. I was a little leary of buying shoes @ Goodwill, but these are cute, and they fit, and they were $5 so what the heck, why not. I also caught some hot curlers. Yah, I don’t curl my hair, I don’t even know how, but for $4 I’ll figure it out!
They are cute, and I can wear them to work.
I did pretty good w/ my lunch today. I was starving while I was driving around town from garage sale to garage sale, so tempting to stop & get some junk. While driving around I found the produce market I was looking for, YES! I knew there was one somewhere, I just couldn’t remember where. It’s called Murphy’s Market (i think). It has quite a bit of fresh produce, yay! Also has some meat, which I think was kind of expensive, but I didn’t pay to much attention as I didn’t know what kind of meat I would need for next weks dinners. They also had some canned goods, which were outrageously priced, and a few other things. I got a pineapple, 2 yellow squash, some carrots, and a Mocha Frappucino (lol, yah not produce but i was thirsty).. anyways, all that only cost me $5 and some change.. I thought that was pretty impressive.
Then I went to Publix to get some bread, bc we were slap out. I also picked up my first veggie burger, I must admit, it was pretty tasty. That’s what I had for lunch when I got home.
Kay, I have to quit procrastinating now. I need to finish this chapter in the next 6 minutes- I don’t see that happening.
