No matter how much time passes, when you get together with an old friend, it feels completely comfortable, like you were never apart. Let’s pretend that’s happening here on the blog, okay? We are old friends after all.
My goal for the month has been to run 5 times a week, with the first four runs being an average of 40 minutes and the 5th run being long. I am doing great with 5 days a week. You can see on my Strava summary that I’ve run 5 days every week for 4 weeks now (the 4th week is only 4 runs because the 5th run will happen today).
However, based on the time, you can see that I only hit my long runs the first two weeks. Last weekend, I was simply too busy…I mean, I just didn’t MAKE time. This weekend, I just am not sure I’m feeling it. We’ll see how I feel later today when I head out. I do love getting those long runs in!
In other news, I’m currently obsessing over finding a pair of short boots that don’t bankrupt me. I cannot get past these boots:
They really want me to love them. Can’t you see them calling my name? However, I hate spending money on trendy shoes. I’m looking for a cheaper alternative. I just haven’t had any luck yet.
Last night, I took both kids shopping and we went to five stores. I seriously think I should be able to put that on Strava as a long run. I did get a leather Coach purse at Salvation Army last night for $3 so that made me feel a little better. Campbell found a really ugly red velour dress for $2. We bought it after making the agreement that it would be a dress up dress and not a leave-the-house dress. She loves it so much she changed into it IN THE CAR. Last night. And she hasn’t taken it off since, even to sleep.
Evan found a nice shirt too and I got Campbell a pair for Keen sandals for next year for $2. Salvation Army is so much fun!
Last night, a store near us had a grand opening, and they had this “Horse Whisperer” guy there. I decided the only difference between him and any other horse trainer is that he puts on a microphone and charges people a lot more. I’ve seen the horse trainer at our barn do very similar things with way less accolades.
Two weeks ago, I did a 10-mile trail run, and the leaves were so stunning. Unfortunately my cell phone camera just doesn’t capture the color.
I’m sure it’s even better today!
What is up in your world? Do you think shopping should be logged into your workout log?
