Another Thinking Out Loud Thursday, linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons
#1 A busy day for me – I went to the track meet early in the morning, then hopped in my car to get to school for 10:20. I am at work until 3:20ish and then going back to the track meet for a little bit before heading to night class. I should be home in time for Grey’s Anatomy – Fun!! I would prefer to be track all day though 🙁
#2 Cristina Yang’s last appearance is tonight on Grey’s Anatomy. Cristina has been one of my favorite TV characters of all the shows I watch. Over the past four episodes they have written a storyline that explains Cristina’s exit (other than the usual death-exit popular by the Grey’s writers). BUT – Grey’s can be unpredictable so we will see what happens. Will there be a twist?
#3 No running until Ottawa Race Weekend for me – I had a really bad run last night. My left lower leg is still acting up a bit. I’ve had good runs lately, but last night was just silly. When I stopped at the lights a 1KM in and then started running again, I started limping. So – my taper 10 days will indeed be a big taper. I may try running again next week, but honestly, I think it is better to just rest up my leg. Depending on how things go, I may also take a few weeks break after the half to rest before I start marathon training. We shall see! I spent last night icing my leg and resting – and will do the same tonight.
#4 Sometimes when I cook, I watch Netflix at the same time on my iPad. It is a time when I can watch something that isn’t “Max Friendly”. But it really depends on what I’m cooking.
#5 This is what I do at grad school, make graphic organizers! It is all part of the process of writing our final papers. I just wish it didn’t take a whole two hour class to do this. I’m usually done the day’s plan within an hour and then sit and talk about running.
#6 Many people have been posting pictures of “what is in my bag” – I won’t be writing one of those posts. But, I will let you know that the oddest thing in my bag is a pair of girl’s Strawberry Shortcake socks for a toddler. Max wet his socks one day at daycare and was sent home in pink socks. It’s ok – he loves pink!
# 7 I really don’t want to eat my lunch (salsa chicken), so therefore I am currently eating cashews, crispers and about to devour some Oreos. #balanced
#8 I don’t know how you guys in Florida who always have humidity not want to take showers 24-7. It is a high humidity day here in Ottawa currently 25C, but feels like 33C and we are melting! The board is refusing to put on the A/C and our fan isn’t working in the office, so we are all feeling sticky and icky. I don’t even know why I bothered brushing my hair today!
Alright – lunch break is over! Have a good one...
