I missed Thinking Out Loud Thursday yesterday as it was a big work day and I just didn’t have the time to either write a post or read any. But I’m stalled right now waiting for people – so I have time for a 5 Things Friday!
Thing #1 – McDonalds Office
I’m currently working out of McD’s because my stupid internet is busted. We have a technician in to do a few changes and now magically the internet isn’t working. I had a conference call scheduled for 10:30, so I had to book it to the closest free internet place – which is McDonalds. I had a latte. Of course, I sit down and see that the conference call is an hour delayed. I will spare you the choice words I uttered when I saw that. We all love waiting, right? There are some other work issues too that just want me to be done with this stuff for a month.
Thing #2 – Road ID!
If you follow me on twitter and also participate in #RunChat – you would have seen that I won a giftcard to RoadID. I already have one – so instead of buying another, I bought some accessories instead. I bought two pairs of socks (much needed) and a few of those band decoration/charm things to put alongside your ID. I bought a 5K, 21.1K, Boston Strong and I Love NY one to put on my band.
#3 New Shoes – New Running
I went for a 3K run yesterday to test out the new running suggestions I was given from my Physio therapist and the new minimalist shoes I bought. It was differently different running in a new way. A bit harder, but I noticed that my calves were not aching at all nor were they ever really tense. Let’s hope this trend continues!
Thing #4 – Some Cool Apps
I went and downloaded a few new apps to my phone the other day. One that is really neat and helped me with some school stuff was CamScanner – you can take pictures of documents and it creates a PDF. I had to scan 50+ documents and upload them onto my course. Using CamScanner made it super easy and quick to get it down. I also downloaded Songza and have been enjoying the streaming music – although it plays that Michael Jackson song way too much! My athletes like the 7 minute workout app that I have with some basic circuit drills.
Thing #5 – New Internet/Cable Box
We called our local cable company and switched our home phone from one big company to the other. Because we now have our phone with the cable company, they gave us a better deal on our internet and cable and we pay the same amount. We now have faster internet and more bandwidth – plus we are joining the 21st century and now have a PVR. Sweet!
Have a great weekend!
