Thursday Things

Finn slept all night last night! Yay! I also slept a little bit better so that’s nice. πŸ™‚ I got up at 7 am, ate breakfast, had a cup of coffee, and geared up for my run. I was super pumped and ready to go! Unfortunately my upbeat attitude and dreams of a super fun run came crashing down the second my Garmin caught a GPS signal and started running. My legs felt like lead, my hips were on fire, my quads were crazy tight, and I was hot but not really sweating much because I hardly drank any water yesterday because I’m dumb. Good times.

I thought about toughing it out, hell I almost did. But at 1.3 miles I started getting kinda dizzy, so I decided to stop at a 1.5 miles, go home, drink a bunch of water, stretch, foam roll, and eat some damn vegetables.

But first I had to shower because I was kinda sweaty and gross. After I did that I did start working on the hydration thing though. While I was working on that, I went outside to take care of the rabbits and play with the dogs a little bit. But when I went to the rabbit hutch I realized that Rey wasn’t inside anymore. Upon further inspection I found that she had dug her way out. Great. I started frantically searching the yard, hoping that she was still somewhere near by. That’s when I saw her run out from under the shed, see me, then run right back under it again.

I found her, then tried coaxing her out with orange slices and dandelions, but she had probably been out all morning gorging herself on all of the grass and weeds in the backyard, so she wasn’t budging.

So, see that cinder block that she’s behind? Yeah I had to dig it out of the ground and then pull it out from under the shed. That wasn’t an easy task, but I got it out of the way and Rey was still just sitting in front of the hole I made, but now with her back to me. So I slowly reached under the shed, carefully positioned my hands over her, and snatched her out of the hole! SUCCESS!! She is now safe and sound in a dog crate in my kitchen, until I figure out what to do with her now. I’m just glad I had found her and got her back safely before something else found her.

After the bunny was safe again, I ate some lunch, had another bottle of water, and then took Lily for a walk. For the most part it wasn’t a very eventful walk, but we did find a cat that looks a lot like our Winchester. This guys just a little bit lighter in color than Winchester is. I just thought that was neat haha.

After our walk I finally quite procrastinating and got my stretch on. I did a 30 minute yoga video specifically for runners. That was really nice and I felt pretty darn great afterwards. And then I rolled my hamstrings and hips a little bit. I probably should have done my quads too, but I kinda wanted to wait for Luke to get home so he could do it with my roller wand thingy. He can get them so much better and deeper than I can! I feel like its a leverage thing or something.

Anyway, after my little yoga session I may or may not have took a short little nap on the couch with Finn and Lily. I guess we were all tired from the bunny fiasco. That was a kinda stressful situation haha. Anyway after our little nap, I chugged another bottle of water, put on a pair of compression sockes (my heals were hurting a little bit, so I figured that’d be a good idea), turned on the latest episode of the Runner’s World Show and got to cleaning the house. πŸ™‚

Around 5 pm Luke got home and announced that we were going out to eat after he got done showering, and that I needed to change out of the running tank top I was wearing. Haha I mean, I do spend about 85% of my time in active wear, but I’m also running really low on tank tops and “nice” shirts. I guess I need to go shopping… Anyway we ended up getting Chinese food and it was pretty good! 

After my failed attempt at running this morning I thought that maybe I’d give it another shot this evening, but now it’s 8 pm and getting a little too dark for that. I guess I can stationary bike or foam roll some more or something. 

I hope you had a happy Thursday!
