There was more of this:
It was the final day of Summer Streets and after my PDR last week I decided to give it another go. Only this time my (stranger) friend wasn’t there to motivate me and it started out rough. I felt like there were more runners out there this time, compared to all the bikers last weekend. More shirtless guys too might I add. I’ve given up the whole comparison of people passing me thing for the most part and realized that this run wasn’t going to be about speed. But I kept on telling myself to just keep going and if I needed to stop I would but until then just keep trudging along. And I did. For 8+ miles. That’s the longest I’ve run without any breaks or walking yet. I had one moment fighting my phone of incoming work texts but kept it brief and trekked on.
I definitely didn’t stretch enough and there was no foam rolling. I know better than that. Gotta work on not coming home and going straight for the shower. Stretching in the shower doesn’t count. But that’s what I did on Saturday, and then walked to a new cafe and got a smoothie and enjoyed a lovely pile of September issues.
My new thing when icing (this I am very good about) is to watch silly sitcoms on Netflix & Hulu. Think ABC family. This week it was Switched at Birth. Silly plot lines aside, I found it pretty interesting in how it taught about the Deaf society; I took American Sign Language senior year of high school.
Swapping smoothie for coffee had me crashing hard Saturday late afternoon. I gave into a nap. And when I woke up my blood sugar was on it’s way down…further draining my energy & killing my plans to head out to Brooklyn for a co-worker’s birthday party. Instead I went over to a friends and watched :
Not at all what I thought it was going to be like but I enjoyed it. And still love Ryan Gosling.
And that was my weekend.
What’s your shows are you watching these days?
Are you more reality TV or sitcom?
Any recent movies that surprised you?
Do you hang out with your co-workers outside of office events?
