Another Thinking Out Loud Thursday – linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons.
I woke up with a cold this morning. It is making school a bit of a struggle today. It is also disappointing since it is Track Thursday and I had planned on running some laps tonight. Not sure if that is still going to happen or now. I’m still coaching tonight and I have parent teacher interviews (again….) but that is only for a bit.
#2 I made the paper
My friend who I used to work with, but now lives in Nova Scotia sent me a picture of a newspaper article from the CFB Greenwood’s newspaper. It is about the event that I attended a couple of weeks ago. The picture is of me dragging 240lbs of sandbags across the gym. Fun!
#3 Cleaned out the blog list
I use Feedly to read blogs and this weekend I cleaned out a whole pile of blogs that I just don’t read any more. Some were also blogs that have disappeared over the past few years. There are a number of blogs that I read almost every post, while some that I just click through. So some people were cut. But if you are reading this/I’ve commented on your blog/you have commented on mine, odds are you were not cut. I just don’t have the time to read 100+ blogs a day and some blogs are just not my cup of tea.
#4 Did you see the Ottawa Race Weekend Postcards?
P handed me them last night as he was going through the mail. Didn’t even see them! Apparently a few people did the same thing. So – if you ran during Ottawa Race Weekend last year, check your mailbox!
I ran the 5K and the 10K (which are both on Saturday night). Remember when I ran a race and stopped like six times to get my leg to work? Yeah, fun….
I’m still surprised I managed a sub-60 during the 10K as I had to come to a complete stop at least 4 times (if not more). The 26:15 5K could have been faster but I had to stop twice and I had an awful side stitch.
2016 Ottawa Race Weekend is the all about the half marathon!
#5 Need pants
I don’t like pants. Dress pants that is. I have very few pairs of dress pants and prefer not to wear them. I find that they don’t fit well. The pairs of pants I currently own are all too big. Winter means the return of pants weather 🙁 In the spring/fall/summer I wear capris and skirts. I should really take inventory of any tights I have and just wear skirts all winter long.
Ok – time to go! Have a great Thursday!
