My weekend started out with an 18 mile run. This was the first time in the past year where i actually thought to myself that i might be crazy. Because at my pace, an 18 mile run gives you about 10 hours of time to talk to people you are running with, we were discussing what we were doing on that fine saturday. (mine was boring - laundry and puppy time) But who the heck has a saturday that goes like this:
wake up at 6am
eat granola bar, drink coffee
RUN 18 MILES
Take a shower
walk the dog
drink more coffee
throw laundry in
catch up on sitcoms
I actually at one point just started laughing at the absurdity of it. (it could have also been the sugar high. or the fact that i have actually lost my mind.) Runners are crazy. Straight up crazy.
Here's the real kicker though - the 18 miler wasn't that bad. I was tired at the end, and ready to get off my feet, but at no point did i feel like i was dying, or have homicidal thoughts about lashing out at those around me.
The worst part was seeing the people around me struggle the last few miles - because i hate seeing other people suffer, and because i have been there - i know they were thinking about pushing me in the lake. I know it. It probably didn't help that i talked about game of thrones for a solid hour.
I felt pretty good after the run, just really stiff. It kinda hurt we to take waffles for a walk after all that running, but i think it actually helped me feel less sore later on, because Sunday i did not hurt nearly as much as usual.
Since Matt was out of town, i indulged in a Supersize vs. Superskinny marathon while i tried to conquer laundry mountain. Supersize vs Superskinny is a british show that i am basically addicted too. They take an extremely obese person, and an underweight person, and make them switch diets for a week. It's like biggest loser, only someone alway ends up pissed off. Usually by day three of the 400lb person only getting coffee for breakfast, they are about to snap the skinny person like a twig.
Sunday, i ran a bunch of errands that included replacing all the air plants that i killed (for the second time)
|I promise not to kill you all this time.|
I told Matt he could eat the ugly ones because they were for an event, and he proceeded to find a flaw with every single one in an attempt to eat the entire batch. Whatever, i thought they looked pretty cute!
And lastly, GAME OF THRONES!!!!!!!!!!
I won't give away anything for those who haven't seen it (or don't care) But it was AWESOME. This season is positioned around a power struggle between five parties wanting to rule over Westeros. I know which team i'm on!
I mean seriously? She has dragons. Game over.
I hope everyone's weekend was significantly more exciting than mine!!
