The Calm before the Race
Hellloooo long lost friends! OK, so it hasn’t been that long, but my blogging has been very sporadic this week. Blaming it on the busy schedule yet again Not complaining though!
Yesterday was my LAST run before the big half marathon this Saturday. It was just a no-pressure, relaxing, short 2.5 miles that I ran with my friend Missy out at the lake behind our work:
It’s a really pretty area that has a loop around the lake. Twice around is a 5k.
It was a very fun run, but I am SUPER excited and nervous to run 13.1 miles on unfamiliar terrain this Saturday. Today and tomorrow are both rest days. Ahh taper week. Kind of like the calm before the
storm race. Eeek! Can’t freakin’ wait.
After training a client, my girl, Kim came over and we headed out for some Indian food:
Kim’s leaving soon Makes me very, very sad. LOVE her! Whenever people I care about leave, I tend to kind of clam up and get a little down. However, when I’m the one doing the leaving, it’s a lot easier to do. This is kind of a different situation, as she’s in the Air Guard…but I’m still just as sad as I am proud/nervous/excited for her.
We each got a glass of chardonnay
And I had some roti
Kim is GF, so it was ALL Mine! Muahaha 😉
For the entree, I ordered Chana Masala:
Doesn’t look appetizing, but it was phenom. It was Kim’s first Indian food experience! She LOVED it. I didn’t doubt she would for a second. Kim’s a blogger and blog reader, too, and we may or may not have mentioned that one fitnessista could have appreciated we celebrated Indian food Wednesday😉
When we got home, I crashed and went straight to bed. It was late, and I had a client to train at 6:00 this morning before heading to work. ‘Twas a long, long day.
Major droolage up in here.
I worked at the office all day, and then went straight to the gym where I had three training appointments in a row. Hey… I’m DEFINITELY not complaining. Bring it on! I love it, and each and every one of my clients makes it so rewarding to train them. Seeing results that you helped them acheive is just…priceless, really.
When I got home (finally!) I was starving, naturally. Why not do Indian food Thursday?
I ate it dipper style, and piled the chickpeas onto the roti and devoured. Mmmm 😀
How do you deal with leaving someone? Is it easier if you’re the one doing the leaving?
