Yep, today was so kickass, ultra fabulous that it get's it's very own post...woot! Not! Well, it get's its own post, but it was anything but kickass and ultra fabulous...

I swear, I really am a positive person, just the past few weeks have been sorta lame!

This is sort of a vent, so if you don't wanna hear it, then don't read it! :)

Ok, the day started out ok, sorta slow and tired, but ok. I got my iced skinny vanilla latte, saw my favorite baristas, and that made me happy!

I love my job, but like everyone, sometimes you just have a bad day. Today, kind of a bad day.

But it's ok, because I was going for a run after work! Yes - I was so excited! Got home, had a slight headache, but didn't care...I was honestly excited to go running. Put my shoes on, and go for it. About 3/4 of a mile into I get this intense, dull pain in my right leg. Oh no! This was the same pain I used to get before I bought my good - proper - running shoes. Well, I have about 350 miles on those shoes now...I thought I could stretch them, but cannot. I need to buy new ones, a small price to pay for no injuries, I just really thought I'd be able to put them off. So, with that said, I cut my run short...very short. I barely got a mile in and was not happy about it.

Instead of beating myself up over it, I let it go. I went home, made my turkey/swiss cheese burger and red wine.

Side note: I'm not running on a treadmill ever again. I hate it! I would much rather slow my pace, and run outside in 110 degree weather than take one more step on a treadmill! Starting Friday, I'm running at the lake!

  1. Oooh, one of those was clearly needed. :) I have now had a handful of treadmill runs and I MISS running outdoors. I stare at other runners while I'm driving...I usually do :)...but I find myself staring at them and longing to be running outdoors just as they are. I couldn't take it the other night and went out for an outdoor run, but had a friend call and I had to take the call. I only got about 1.25 mi. in. I'm planning for an outdoor run early Saturday morning on a local trail I just miss running outdoors so much - the freedom to stop and start whenever, the freedom to go faster and slower, etc. without having to push buttons! I hope you enjoy your outdoor run!
