Have you read Ali’s post from Tuesday? If not – you should. Good stuff. — I never want to feel like blogging is a job. I never want to feel like I have to post.
Life has been pretty boring lately, but that’s a good thing, right?
I’m really super amazing at tapering. So good in fact, that my first run of the week didn’t even happen until Wednesday – definitely not what I was planning, but what can I say? I like to take advantage of taper week.
Monday was a planned rest day after Sunday’s 10 mile run. I did nothing but clean the kitchen, and lay on the couch and watch Netflix. Chris didn’t get off work until midnight.
I had to take my car to Toyota on Tuesday and I spent 2.5 hours sitting in their lobby waiting for them to replace 2 of my tires and do an alignment. Honestly, why does that take so long?
Hallelujah for the Netflix iPhone app! I’m currently watching season 2 of the show Flashpoint – I brought headphones to the Toyota dealership so that I could watch Netflix without bothering anyone else that was in the lobby.
By time I finally made it home it was time to make dinner, which by the way, ended up being pancakes & eggs (yum!). Running was the last thing I wanted to do, plus, it’s taper week, so it’s okay to skip a run..right?
I finally decided that I could/should run on Wednesday. An easy 3 miles. Unfortunately it was still kind of hot when I headed out to un at 5:30. I ran with just a stop watch. I like to run Garmin free during taper weeks. It helps me to just relax and not focus on pace. 3 miles, 27:00, 9:00avg . I struggled a little – my calves felt tight, and my IT band on my right leg was screaming. wah.
When I got home I made sure to stretch really good, and foam roll that cranky IT band.
I need to get that IT band under control before it controls me.
On Tuesday, in a fit of frustration I called bright house and cancelled our cable & home phone. It doesn’t actually turn off until I turn in the cable box – so I’m soaking up as much trash TV as possible in the next few days. I’m turning the box in on Saturday – after that I’ll be relying on HULU & Netflix to keep me entertained.
Have anything exciting to share?
