So I didn’t realize how sore I was until Monday evening. I was SORE. Like hold on to the wall when you sit down to go to the bathroom sore, grimace every time you get off your duff sore, don’t touch my legs or I’m going to kill you sore. Yea, it was pretty bad. I was starting to wonder if I was going to be able to do the half this upcoming weekend. If it wasn’t for the last two hard miles I put in at the 1/2, I would have been totally fine, but yea, the 6:15 mile killed me. I stretched, and decided that Tuesday morning I was going to go out for an easy jog.
Well at 6:00 in the morning it’s freezing, and I hate, nay, loathe being cold. And my freezing is around 50 degrees, I know I’m a baby. So I bundled up in my sweatpants from Wal-mart (extra classy with the elastic around the foot) and my Cal Sweatshirt I got on sale from Kohls for five dollars, put on the hood and tied it down good so that it wouldn’t slip off. (I guess I’m not that Chic, I just looked homeless) and went out.
WHY DIDN’T ANY OF YOU TELL ME TO DO THIS EARLIER! Maybe it’s just me but when I came back home, I was feeling 10,000 times better. My medical knowledge things that because I was super warm on my run, it warmed up my muscles and made them feel better? Yea, I lack a lot of medical knowledge. Now I’m feeling better and ready for the weekend, I just hope it’s not bone chilling cold or the beloved “santa ana” winds decide that they need to gust up some more fires over here.
So besides giving my race report I forgot to report on the Long Beach goodie bag. Oh wait, that’s right, there’s nothing to report because it was horrible! What were they thinking. The only thing I got out of the bag was some Clif Blox, (which I’m addicted to now and can’t seem to get enough, they are like gushers for adults, I’ll write more later) and a free chicken sandwich from Chick-fil-a (another great place I’m addicted too, try it if it’s around you) but seriously, it was the lamest thing ever. The t-shirt is pretty cool, but now I’m into being warm and it’s cold out, so a small little dri-fit isn’t going to cut it unless I make a trip to the gym to get my swell on with the rest of the meatballs there. Okay so not everyone at the gym is a meatball, but maybe my gym is just special that every guy in the weight section is ripped out of their mind and seemingly wearing tank tops that expose most of their body.
Today I found this super cute watch. Yes, another Coach Product, but hello, pretty much the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.
If you haven’t heard of Emergen-C, you are missing out, and they have also gone out to support Breast Cancer Awareness by adding a new flavor, Pink Lemonade to their many already delicious options.
SmashboxCosmetics also has a Pink Power Palette out right now.
Lastly, I found this sheer pink color by OPI called Pink of Hearts.
So now I guess I’m already three days away from my next half. Should go well, but I am trying to go for 1:55ish this time. Also, these were the races I’m looking at for the upcoming months. Anyone have any interest in any of them, or have experience with them?
I’m only really set on the Surf City, Wine County and the San Fran, but the other ones would be fun. Can you tell I’m addicted? More cool stuff Friday!
