Wake Up and Not Run 18 Miles
Shane and I ended up flyin’ solo last night, but that’s OK, we tend to keep each other good company
When Shane asked me where I wanted to go to dinner last night, I took one look outside and saw the sleet and below zero windchill and said, “how about pizza delivery?”
I’m rarely one to turn down a dinner date out, but just the thought of walking to and from the car and restaurant chilled me to the bone!
Luckily, Monical’s (my fave local pizza joint) delivered in a huge way. I had what was on the plate plus double of the pizza side. I was hungry! And of course, you gotta have the French dressing when eating Monical’s.
Throughout the night we also played Wii bowling – where I finally beat Shane!! – and watched like three episodes of Breaking Bad.
Not too shabby of a Friday night!
I have to train a client here in a little bit, and I beforehand I’m going to get in a lifting workout. I’m not sure how stellar the workout will be, as I’m feeling incredibly lazy at the moment. But it’ll happen regardless
I don’t know what your morning routines are, but I get out bed, grab my robe and slippers, feed the pets, and head to the coffee machine. Once coffee’s in hand, I log onto the computer for about 5 minutes to check email/Twitter/etc.
It seems like every single Saturday morning, the moment I log onto Twitter in my bleary-eyed, robe-dwelling state, the first Tweet I see is always something like, “I just ran like, upwards of 10 miles!!! And it felt fantastic!” or “Wow, that was such a lovely 18 mile run with the sunrise!”
And my response is always the same: whhyyyyyyyyy?
My first reaction is guilt- that I’m sitting in my robe, warm, just getting out of bed – but then I realize no one would ever want to be friends with me if I willingly got out of bed to exercise on a Saturday before 7:00. I’d just be way too cranky pants. It also reminded me why I decided I wouldn’t, in fact, be training for a marathon anytime soon.
Don’t get me wrong, I think these people are great (inspiring, even,) but it’s just funny how I always read those kinds of tweets in that state of mind
Wow, that was random…/endrant
What I do feel like doing today is going to Trader Joe’s and Lululemon. Unfortunately, the nearest ones are 1.5 hours away…but I might just feel frisky enough to make the drive today. I’m still working on a passenger to go with me to keep me company, but who knows? Maybe I’ll go solo. Not like I haven’t done it before!
We shall see…
I’ll be eating breakfast on the drive to my client’s house, most likely. I’ve already got it packed up and in the fridge:
A usual combo – Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, pumpkin, cinnamon, currants, and almond meal. Yum, yum.
What the farthest you’ve driven just to go to one or two stores?
What time do you workout on Saturdays (if you workout at all on Saturdays!)?
