So I got off the bean for a while. I did feel markedly better. Then missed it and started having it ONLY WHEN I COULD SIT DOWN AND REALLY ENJOY IT. Which turned into every a.m. then again every afternoon. And again I'm cooked! Why does it have to be this way? I just love the coffee so much. Back to just a.m. and feeling a bit better already. Though I'm enjoying my a.m. cup right now after a hard early morning run and am already day dreaming about having another cup.
Speaking of an early a.m. run. 1. I am NOT a morning person, 2. running on pavement is way harder than running on a treadmill. Guess that belt really does help move the foot eh? I felt great on my Mon and Tues runs (on the treadmill), but today was tough. Granted M/T were 'easy' and today was tempo. My legs felt like lead today. I did get bored yesterday and played w/ the elevation on the TM, but come on.. it wasn't anything that drastic. I think it has more to do w/ the getting out of bed and running immediately vs getting up and waking up before running. I remember suffering through early a.m. runs back in Seattle while the evening runs were fine during the same points in training. Too bad most races start in the early a.m.... though I rarely start a race right out of bed like I start a run right out of bed.
This waiting to move thing is really weighing on me right now. I'm so tired of the waiting!!! My house is cluttered and messy (I know I know it's not like it's normally neat, but after the staging it was pretty slimmed down).
And for all of the parents (all 5 of you) that read this do you ever think.. "I'm not sure I was meant to be a parent"? I'm feeling quite inadequate lately. I feel a 'new years resolution' coming on. Most days lately I've felt like I wasn't' cut out for this!
Here are some photos .. I really need to get back to taking more photos. Now the only photos I take are w/ my iPhone.
