I am keeping this post short and sweet, because i have only negative things to say about running today. It just kinda hit me that the marathon is fast approaching, and i am in no way mentally prepared for it. And, as i enter what will be a very high mileage week (for me) I am entering it already tired and sore. So it's not like things are going to get any better.
This weekend i had my 14 miler, which was a nice cutback from the 18 miler last week. The only downside was that after the run i felt incredibly sick to my stomach, and had a quarter inch layer of salt on me. It wasn't even hot out - i'm so not ready for summer. I spent saturday afternoon recovering, and then we took waffles to the not yet official logan square dog park. She ran around for an hour, but then she saw another dog being walked along the incredibly busy Western Ave, and she slipped right through the bars of the park to chase it. Luckily the lady walking the other dog was quick enough to grab her before she had a chance to run into the street. I almost had a heart attack.
I promptly signed her up for puppy training classes Saturday evening. They start in two weeks.
Sunday, Matt was nice enough to take me to Pinkberry for some fro-yo, and we did a little urban gardening - he planted dill, basil, parsley, oregeno, rosemary and chives.
Today at work, i made a point to escape to the target to clear out their easter candy section. I made out like a bandit in the jelly bean department (as the photo shows) but they were out of peeps already!! THE HORROR! How am i going to make my game of thrones peep diorama now??
I had a boring weekend full of candy and running, and hopefully you did too! I will be back tomorrow with more interesting things to say, i promise.
