Thinking Out Loud Thursday #5

Yay Thursday!

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...

    I like to watch Netlflix when I’m folding a big pile of laundry, but I’ll have to remember it for next time when I’m cooking! I hope your leg gets to feeling better!

    I hope your leg starts working better soon! No fun.

    Also, are the summers in Ottawa super humid? I’m thinking of moving there for residency and I’m definitely not accustomed to the heat haha.

      It can be! It has gotten worse but last year we had tons of days with temps in the 30s with humidex temps in the 40s – honestly in the summer I prefer Southern California weather as it’s hot but with little humidity (in the desert, not places like San Diego haha)

    #7 is SO me! I can’t even tell you how many times I haven’t felt like eating something I’ve prepared, or even a real meal, so I got by by snacking on random things instead. Whatever works, right? 🙂

      Yup! Usually I just keep the other meal for dinner!

    How is the leg feeling now?
    I’m still stressing about next Sunday’s weather… can you imagine if it is as hot as yesterday?

      It is feeling ok – but I think I will rest the leg for another few days. It’s been an on going issue with shin splints but I haven’t really rested the muscles. Ugh, I hope the weather isn’t like this weeks! I’m hoping for no humidity!
