So lots has happened in the past say….3 days. Unfortunately there wasn’t a lot of running. BUT – there was a lot of other things that are important to me and important to my health. Ready for the list of updates?
Some people get the producer lifestyle, but most of the general public don’t get how it works. I had a lot of people ask me what my typical Saturday morning is like. Here is a short description, with some photos. Not a lot of photos, but some: Continue reading
I can’t tell you what had me thinking about this. Maybe it’s because it’s officially summer here in Florida and I’m having to look at bathing suit options. Maybe it’s because I’m just under 5 months to my cruise with Ryan and Dawn to see them get married. Maybe it’s because I think too much. But all I do know is that it’s been on my mind for a while now again…
When I suited up to go running yesterday morning, I paid attention to what I was putting on. XL Champion brand running shorts. 2 medium Champion brand compression sports bras. (That’s right: TWO. I have been BLESSED) and a size large tech shirt from the Tour de Pain: Extreme. My medium sized running socks were slipped on before my size 8.5 Mizunos. And of course a headband. Continue reading
I warn you now – this post will be a bit random. I’ve been up since 2am (it’s currently 11am) and I’m not thinking straight.
I went back to DailyMile and saw that I ran very few miles in May. Which isn’t true. I was running a lot. I just fail at logging my miles. It kind of bummed me out looking at it. I was like “Wait…I totally ran that week. And that one. Dammit”
So I can’t tell you how I did on my mileage, but I can tell you that I ran more than what DailyMile is saying I ran. I have the arguments with Brian for being late getting home, the loads of laundry, the miles on two pairs of sneakers, and the friends who ran with me to vouch for it. It’s just when you are so busy doing everything, you tend to forget little things like logging miles and making sure surge protectors are working correctly during a storm that hits your house while you are out of town. (and therefore frying your computer) Continue reading
Unless I am running with a friend – which has been all I have been doing lately – I run with music. It allows me to disappear into the lyrics and before you know it, I am running faster and more comfortably than I had. My mind isn’t focused on how I am trying to breathe or how far I need to go. It just drifts.
I listen to pretty much anything (except Bieber. That kid needs to go away) and I like having a variety of tunes I can run to. On my player right now is rock, rap, hip hop (very different than rap) and pop. I also have alternative and emo, a favorite of mine. I asked my sister to put some new tunes on it in March and now I have some Bieber too. Stupid kid.
Among all the songs I have on my player, I have designated “run” songs where no matter where I am in my run, when that song plays – I GO. Just run. There is a Kiss song, a LMFAO song, a Linkin Park song, and a few Carrie Underwood songs on that list. One of my favorites on that list is “Remember the Name” by Fort Minor. It’s hard to just not gun it when you hear him running through all the numbers!
I know I don’t run nearly as well without my music, unless I am listening to Kat talk my ear off of course. But music makes my running fun an relaxing.
Tell me: what songs make you run?
When my home computer crashed, I started relying on my work computer and my lunch break to get blogs done. This blog is important to me and I want to stick to it as much as I can.
But when my work computer got swapped out and I was stuck trying to figure out why the damn thing wouldn’t stay on, I got more frustrated.
It took the IT guys almost a week to determine that the new box had a video card that wouldn’t support my obsession with Google Chrome, redo the bios on my old box, update that one, and then put it back on my desk. Then, it took another 2 hours to upload everything back on it.
As for my home computer, I have the new power supply sitting on my dining room table. My computer? At my brothers house. He is out of town. Till Wednesday. So MAYBE by next weekend I will have my computer back.
And I know I can post via my phone but that means no photos and that’s just boring.
So I don’t want to lose you readers and I don’t want you to think I forgot about you. Head over to Twitter (@idiotrunnergirl) and Facebook (Facebook.com/idiotrunnergirl) and make sure you keep up with me there!
I miss you all!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted about food and diet. I wasn’t going to focus on it because it’s not something that I’m completely obsessed with, despite having to be a little obsessed given the dietary changes I’m trying to make in order to cut gluten out of my diet. But lately it’s been non stop food related drama.
And really – it irritates me how people act about food and diet. Continue reading
