Weekly Recap: September 11th-17th, 2017

Monday:

  • 2 miles
  • 10 minute kettle bell workout

Hurray! I ran on Monday!! Just two miles, but hey, that’s better than nothing! My knee was aching a bit near the end of the first mile, but I was a mile away from home and I had to get back somehow so I ran that mile back. πŸ˜‰ And it just felt really good to run again so I didn’t really want to stop, even though I probably should have stopped once my knee started hurting. Oh well.

 

 

Tuesday:

  • Rest day

Trying to take things easy and do the whole run every other day thing, so that I don’t over do it and hopefully give my knee more time to heal. So, took a rest day on Tuesday. πŸ™‚

Wednesday: 

  • 2 miles
  • 10 minutes of stretching

Check out my fancy new compression leggings!! Not sure if they actually helped out during my run, but my leg was feeling a bit better on Wednesday, during my run. πŸ™‚

Thursday:

  • Rest day

Yeah, I just didn’t feel like doing anything on Thursday, so I didn’t haha. But in all fairness, not doing anything was probably good for my knee situation. πŸ™‚

Friday:

I guess you could call Friday an active rest day? Haha Luke and I went grocery shopping, ran some errands, and then took the dogs to the park and walked them around for a while. We actually managed to wear all three of them out, which is not an easy task to accomplish. πŸ˜‰

Saturday:

Another day spend doing nothing haha. Luke and I stayed up pretty late the night before so I didn’t get much sleep and was basically too tired to do anything on Saturday. I feel like I’ve just gotten lazy though. I mean, at the very least I could have stretched or something. Oh well.

Sunday: 

  • 30 minutes on the stationary bike 
  • 20 minutes of yoga 

Attempting to ward off the cycle of laziness that I’m currently about to fall into. I’ve caught myself thinking things along the lines of “running is not currently happening, so why do anything?” Yeah that’s like the opposite of what I should be doing. πŸ˜‚ But I made the time to get active and not sit around and feel sorry for myself today, and that’s totally a win!! 

So tomorrow I’m going to go for another short run and try to assess my current leg situation and then go from there! 

Happy Sunday!

I Suck At Sleeping, Apparently

Alright, I probably don’tΒ actuallyΒ suck at sleeping, but the past couple of nights I just haven’t slept well and it kinda sucks. I’m thinking maybe I shouldn’t have just jumped right back into my training scheduled after skipping a long run and then taking a week off for an injury (ok, I know I shouldn’t have done it, but I’m stubborn), but what’s done is done and I’m pretty sure my body is pissed at me haha. Meh, I also think I’ll be fine in a few days. Garmin told me that it was going to take me 4 days to recover from my long run last Sunday and I’m beginning to think that wasn’t an over exaggeration.

 

So, I literally did nothing but sit on my couch yesterday. I got a lot of reading done though (I’ve got about 8 thousand books that I need to read but just haven’t gotten around to yet), so go me!! Aaand after waking up tired again this morning and looking at my sleep chart, I’ve decided that another day off from running is probably a good idea. So, after I’m done with this post I’m probably going to go do some yoga and stretching and foam rolling. Thanks to the ice bath I took on Sunday after my 9 miler, my legs actually feel really good! But it’s probably still a good idea to give them some more TLC. πŸ™‚

Also, just a quick shout out to the person on Instagram who commented about how much worse their night of sleep was. Gosh I hate “one uppers”. That is literally one of my biggest pet peeves. Like, just because you had it worse doesn’t mean someone else isn’t entitled to complain about something going on with them. That shit drives me crazy. And so does unsolicited advise, which is also something I got on Instagram today, when someone else told me that my sleep chart actually looks normal. Like, no dude, that’s totally not normal for me and since you don’t know me there’s a good chance that you wouldn’t know that, and therefore you’re “helpful” comment just irritated me. I know I probably shouldn’t get so worked up over stuff like that, but it’s just sooo annoying. I very much believe that unless someone is explicitly asking for your advice, you shouldn’t just go around handing it out, because in most situations there is probably a good chance that you don’t know 100% what’s going on with the other person. And one uppers are just super obnoxious…

(Haha I was so annoyed that I posted a very unsuccessful rant on vidme. Finn makes a guest apperance. It’s great. πŸ˜‰ ).

Oh and I’m pretty sure the meter man opened the gate to my backyard because the dogs were barking at him while he was in the easement. I made them come in once they started doing it, but once he made his way across the street to one of the neighbor’s yards, I let them back out (what can I say, they like being outside). Well seconds later I see Finn, Dean, and Ace running across my front yard, so I called them back inside (luckily they’re all trained well and come the second they’re called). So I checked the gate and it was wide open and pushed inwards. 1. The dogs have never opened that gate before. 2. Even if they did I feel like it should have been pushed outward and probably not opened all the way. And 3. I know for a fact it was shut before hand, because the dogs had been in the yard all morning. So I’m pretty sure he opened it…Jokes on him though, because they went running after him when I let them back out haha. Luckily though I noticed them before anything bad could happen.

Anyways, aside from my not-so-great night of sleep and annoying people, I’m actually in a pretty good mood today! It’s beautiful out, the temperature is starting to go down a little bit, and you can just barely feel little hints of fall in the air. It’s great!! I’ve been telling Luke that I think it’s going to be a short summer and so far it’s definitely looking that way! Later this week the and over the weekend the highs are supposed to go back up into the mid/high 80’s but then after that it drops to the mid/low 70’s. Haha I sure hope that happens, and then that trend continues and that fall gets here fast! I’m so over summer and am very ready for fall running!!

img_6068

Plus my knee (the reason I had to take a week off) is feeling much better! I was worried about how it was going to hold up during my long run on Sunday, but it did very well! There was a little bit of pain in the beginning but around mile 4 it started feeling much better and by the time I had finished it actually didn’t hurt at all! Yay! Now hopefully it will just stay fine because I’m not entirely sure what I did to hurt it in the first place haha.

But anyways, that is all I’ve got for today so I’m off to do some yoga! Happy Tuesday!

Half Marathon Training Day 35 (Because I’m Still An Athlete On Off Days), Life Is Messy, New Hair, and Other Catching Up In General

Oh man life is messy. I’ve currently got a lot going on with multiple sides of my family, I’m training for a half marathon, keeping up with my husband, my dogs, a new rabbit, my other rabbit and other pets, my sister’s dog, my garden, the house, and just life in general. I’m also still kind of experiencing the post concert blues (haha yup, I’m still hung up on all the Green Day feels. You can read about that night here and here if you missed it. πŸ˜‰ I’m feeling a little bit overwhelmed right now and I feel like I’ve been neglecting several of the things mentioned above, along with this blog and my Vidme account. Haha I’m also going to shamelessly plug my Instagram account while I’m at it, because I am actually keeping up with that. πŸ˜‰

So yeah, as you can probably already tell, I’m going to be linking to several older posts in this little update. Mostly because I’m trying to organize all of my thoughts and re-reading the stuff I’ve already written helps. And ya know, it helps anyone who missed anything and wanted to catch up with the weirdness that is my life or wanted to go back and figure out what the heck I’m talking about haha. I like to think it helps.

Anyway, Β I’m not entirety sure where to start or where this post is going to end up going so if you’re reading this you’re about to embark on what is probably going to be a long adventure in self reflection and discovery with me. πŸ™‚ Okey Dokey, lets get into it then shall we?

Starting with running! Yay running! The whole reason I started this blog and one thing that I think sometimes I neglect to talk in depth enough here haha. So, half marathon training day ___ actually ended up being a rest day. That wasn’t supposed to be the case (according to my training scheduled, anyway.), today was supposed to be a long run day. 10 miles to be exact. I wasn’t entirely sure if that was going to happen though. In my last post here on the blog, I talked a little bit about how I ended up hurting my knee (at the Green Day concert, I think) and ended up taking all of last week off from running. It’s been feeling better this week, but it’s still not back at 100% yet. I’ve been able to do all of my workouts this week with minimal pain, but I wasn’t sure how it would hold up for 10 miles. But of course last night was one of those nights when I just couldn’t fall asleep (that happens to me every once in a while). I finally fell asleep around 1:40 am, but at that point I knew my long run wasn’t going to happen today. So I decided to rest today and hopefully do a long run tomorrow. Haha at the very least now my knee is getting an extra day off after the interval workout I did yesterday.

So yeah, no running for me today. But I am still working on things that will make tomorrow’s (hopefully) long run better. I’ve been eating pretty well, I’m drinking plenty of water, and I’ve done a little bit of stretching/ foam rolling. Go me! πŸ™‚ Haha I have this really bad habit of getting super lazy and not taking care of myself on days when I don’t run. I’m trying to work on that though. I’ve been telling myself that I’m still an athlete on my days off and that means I should act as such. So far that’s gone well for me today, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see if I actually stick with it.

So yeah, running stuff. πŸ˜‰ Haha I’ll actually be posting a Weekly Recap this week, so if you’re at all interested in how my 3rd (I think it’s the 3rd anyway) week of half marathon training is going that’ll be up at some point tomorrow.

Ok moving on to some animal stuff (because I can’t not talk about them πŸ˜‰ ). So two-ish weeks ago I had mentioned that our rabbit, Rey had died. Luke and I were worried about our other rabbit, Daisy, because rabbits are very social and she’s always had Rey, so Luke ended up bringing home a new baby bunny that very day. She is an adorable little fluffball who I’ve named Rune. πŸ™‚

Unfortunately Daisy has been acting very strange about the new bunny situation. When we first introduced them she was fine, she would clean her, cuddle her, and they seemed like they were going to be fast friends. That wasn’t the case though…She ended up shoving Rune into the corner of the cage and wouldn’t let her near the food, but when I tried to take Rune out of the cage that little bitch bit me (something she’s never done!) and literally grabbed Rune by the foot and dragged her back into the cage. So yeah, they live in separate cages now and we’re slowly trying to introduce them back to each other.

On the bright side, Rune is a very sweet little rabbit! She’s very social and loves to be pet. Haha last night I was trying to read in my bed while I let her run around, which she did. But she’d also let me know that I wasn’t paying enough attention to her by headbutting me whenever she wanted to be pet. Silly little thing.

And sticking with animals for just one moment longer, my Sister’s dog Ace is still here. He was originally going to be here for 4 days, but at this point we’re going on 3 weeks. I mean, it’s not like he’s a bad dog or anything and he gets along fine with my dogs, but it’s loooong past time for him to go home…Supposedly my sister’s boyfriend is supposed to come get him tomorrow, but I guess we’ll see if that actually happens. He was supposed to come a week ago to get him, but he didn’t because we we’re too far out of his way…And yeah, our house is about 30 minutes out of the way when you’re driving from Illinois (where he’s from) to Colorado where my sister now lives, but on a 10+ hour car ride that’s really notΒ that bad. Especailly since he can stop here andΒ nap if he wants to, eat for free, walk around, use the bathroom, etc. But whatever.

img_5881

He enjoys laying on my yoga mat while I’m trying to stretch.

Alright! I think I’m actually getting close to the end of stuff I wanted to talk about! Haha I thought this was going to take a lot longer for me to get all out. Apparently I didn’t want to go as in depth into this stuff as I thought haha. πŸ˜‰

Anyways, onto my last order of business, I changed my hair!! I got super bored with my natural hair color/blond streak that I’ve been rocking off and on since I was 17, so I dyed it black. And I succsessfully did it without dyeing my forehead/ears black as well!! Haha last time I dyed my hair black I did and it looked awful…But I didn’t do it this time and I’m definitely enjoying the change! I’m thinking I’m going to end up sticking with the black for a while, but eventually I’m going to start missing my blond streak and I’ll end up with it again. Over the years I’ve gone with a purple streak, my usual blond streak, red, short red, black, medium black (what I’ve currently go going on), but I always end up back at the blond streak. Haha it’s just easier to keep up with and I think it looks neat. But like I said, I’m very happy with the change right now, and I’m gonna stick with it for a while.

Alrighty, I believe that basically sums up what I’ve had going on in my life. For the most part at least. But now that I’m back at running and mostly back on my regular scheduled, I’ll be more active here on the blog and talking more about half marathon training, and eventually I’ll start making vlogs again.

Ok, I need to go mop my floors now. I hope you have a great weekend!

Half Marathon Training Day 16, Green Day Is This Week, Dog Sitting, and Other Randomness

img_5378

Yes, yes it is! And it totally should be!! This week is more likely than not going to be fucking fantastic for me!! Judging from the title of this post it should be kinda obvious as to why, but before we get to that, lets talk running!

At some point last week I had mentioned that my hamstrings were super tight. That’s kinda weird for me. Usually it’s my quads that end up tight and that ends up causing issues. Luckily though my after a bunch if stretching and foam rolling my hamstrings loosened up and haven’t been a problem since! πŸ™‚ And my quads feel pretty good too!

So since my legs were feeling really good today they were ready to go! Unfortunately my lungs were not…let me tell you, asthma and humidity do not mix well. At least for me they don’t. I managed to make it 2 miles this morning, but it wasn’t exactly fun haha. Luckily today was supposed to be an easy day anyway and I definitely accomplished that! I’m hoping my lungs decide to cooperate a little bit more tomorrow. I’m thinking I want to do my long run tomorrow just so I can get it out of the way and won’t have to worry about it this weekend, but I guess we shall see how that goes.

Processed with Rookie Cam

I think I also mentioned last week that I’m baby sitting my sister’s dog, Ace. He’s a very good boy and is getting along with my dogs very well, but it’s pretty funny having him around. My sister used to run with him (she hasn’t lately though as she’s just now getting back into running after having surgery on her hip last year. So both him and Dean get super excited whenever the see me putting on my running gear. Haha I feel bad for them because I’m probably not going to be running with Ace at all. I’m just not sure if we’ll be able to run well together and he’s getting a little older and hasn’t been running for a while so I’m not sure how far he’d be able to go or how well he’d do. And I haven’t been running with Dean lately because I don’t do well in the heat/humidity (and today is just further proof of that haha) and I have a bad habit of running a little bit too hard when I run with Dean. πŸ˜‰

It’s also pretty amusing having Ace around because he is just soooo confused as to why we keep animals that he’d usually be able to kill in a cage, and doesn’t understand why I yell at him whenever he tries to nip at them through the cage. Finn is confused as to why Ace wants to kill his rabbits. They are his livestock and he’s taken it upon himself to protect them and try to herd them haha. Luckily that means I don’t really have to keep an eye on them while they’re all outside, because Finn isn’t going to let anything happen to them. Plus my rabbits are used to being around dogs and being barked at so they don’t care. Haha they pretty much just ignore the dogs. And Ace knows better than to break into their cage. Especially after being told “no”. He still doesn’t get it though haha.

 

 

 

I’m not entirely sure how long Ace is going to be staying with. I’ve heard that my sister’s boyfriend my pick him up on his was to Colorado and bring him home. I’ve also heard that my brother may take him home, since he’ll be here on Thursday or Friday. Haha I don’t mind though. I enjoy having him here. πŸ™‚

And I guess that brings us to why this week is going to be amazing!! I mean, aside from the fact that I’m dog sitting a very good boy, have a long run and a few other fun workouts that I’m looking forward to, and that I get to see my brother later later this week.

THE GREEN DAY CONCERT IS ON FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

img_5390

I am So. Fucking. Stoked!!!! Especially for my brother! This is going to be his first concert and it should be amazing for him! Green Day puts on a fantastic show. Haha obviously I’m a bit biased, but it is really true! People “in the industry” have been saying it for quite a while now, and usually the worst thing that critics and whatnot can say is that they pull too many people up on stage (which I think is dumb. You can’t involve your fansΒ tooΒ much, but whatever). But anyway, we have kinda shitty seats, but it’s still gonna be a blast! I’d rather have shitty seats that not be able to go anyway. πŸ˜‰

So since Green Day is happening this week I’m obviously going to have to wear a different Green Day shirt every day and you’re gonna hear about it. πŸ˜‰ Actually, you’re probably going to be hearing all sorts of Green Day related stuff from me this week (and probably next week haha), so just warning you now. Full on fan-girl mode has officially commenced!!!!!

One of my new t-shirts and now my favorite Green Day shirt. πŸ™‚

I guess this may be a bit of a reach, but is there anyone out there reading this from the Kansas City area who’ll be at the Sprint Center on Friday as well?? Well I guess you don’t have to be from the area, but you know what I mean. If you are and if you see me, come say hi!!! I’d love to talk to you!! I’ve got a weird blond streak in my dark brown hair, a nose ring, a border collie tattoo on my arm and a Green Day tattoo on my shoulder, and I’ll probably be wearing a bunch of eyeliner. Haha I feel like I’ll be pretty recognizable, but maybe not. πŸ˜‰ But seriously if you do see/recognize me but are afride to just walk up and say hi (I mean, I will be with two relatively threatening looking guys ((that’s a joke, they aren’t actually threatening))), feel free to just scream “Hey, Ashley!” or “THE RUNNING REBEL” really loud in my general direction and I’ll introduce you to my awkward self.

Anyways, I had a bunch of stuff I wanted to get done today, but my lungs are still kinda unhappy with me so I’m not sure how much I’m going to be able to do. Thanks asthma…Fall can’t get here fast enough, I’m so very done with the heat/humidity. Oh well, hopefully the cold weather will be here before I know it.

Happy Monday!

Photos From This Week

So, I got a little bit lazy this week and didn’t write down all of my workouts for my usual weekly recap and I don’t really feel like trying to remember everything from the week. Oops haha. Oh well, it happens to the best of us I suppose. So instead here are some photos from this week instead. I hope you enjoy!!

Another Unexpected Rest Day

My mom and brother ended up staying a little later than expected. We all ended up sleeping in late so we got a late start to the day. That wasn’t too big of a deal, we kinda missed trash and recycle pick up but that wasn’t that big of a deal. We never really have much trash anyway. Our recycle bins are pretty full, but we’re just going to have to deal with that until next Friday.

Anyway, my mom and brother ended up leaving Ace here to stay for a little bit. My mom was worried about having 3 dogs (him, Niko, and my uncle’s dog Luther) all at my grandma’s house (which is where my mom and bother are staying while they’re in Illinois) so we offered to watch him. He’s a very good boy. πŸ™‚ He and Lily kinda grew up on the farm together, Dean’s met him several times and they like playing together, Finn had never met him before yesterday, but they seem to get along, so watching him will be easy enough. πŸ™‚ There was no way Niko was staying here though. He’s never aloud to stay at my house for more than a day or two (and even then only if my mom or dad is here with him) ever again. The first and last time he stayed here he attacked Lily over a treat and left a really deep tooth mark in her leg. And that was back when he was younger. Now he’s fully grown and weighs 125 pounds….But anyway, it’ll probably be fun to have Ace here for a little bit.

img_5313

Anyways, since we got up late Luke and I got a late start to our day. That wasn’t too big of a deal, we still got everything we wanted to do done, it just sucks because we needed to go grocery shopping but didn’t get that accomplished and I didn’t get a run in today. Hahaha it’s all good though, we’ll probably get groceries on Sunday and according to my fancy new Garmin Fenix 5 I could use another day of rest anyway, so I guess that worked out alright. πŸ™‚

img_5333

So the first thing we had to do was go to Luke’s work building to get some stuff taken care of at the bank (haha it’s an employee owned credit union, so it’s in his building and only open when Luke’s work is opened). Then we had to drive to another bank to cash a check he got. Since the other bank is so small and whatnot they don’t keep much cash on hand. Once we got all the boring adult stuff done we went to the mall to so some shopping and then went out for lunch.

img_5316

My face when I have to adult.

At the mall we went to Hot Topic (for the second time this week) because more band t’s we’re necessary. Haha in my world there’s no such thing as too many band t’s. Especially if they’re Green Day t shirts. πŸ˜‰ Luke also got this super sweet limited edition Supernatural Funko Pop. It’s Dean inside of Baby and it’s really fucking awesome. It was also really fucking expensive, but we both thought it was totally worth it haha. After Hot Topic we went to Pink because I was in desperate need of some new pants, but I won’t actually wear anything that’s not yoga pants/running leggings haha. While we were in there Luke and I both decided that I don’t look like I belong in that store, but dammit I like they’re yoga pants!!! And I got a very pretty pair while we were there. πŸ™‚

So yeah, after being adults we reverted into teenagers, went to the mall, and bought Green Day merch and collectible nerd stuff. It was great!

img_5321

After our nerdy needs were satisfied we decided to go eat at Bo Lings, because we absolutely neededΒ Chinese food. If you’ve never been to a Bo Lings you totally need to go! They have some super awesome Asian Cuisine for a pretty decent price. My huge plate of noodles and bowl of egg drop soup was only $12 and Luke’s sweet and sour chicken and soup was $13. Anyway, funnily enough, I was the one who wanted Chinese food but I actually ended up getting Singapore rice noodles. Not gonna lie thought, I was super proud of myself for trying something new. I don’t usually do that haha. Plus it ended up being super yummy and I have all sorts of left overs, because look at all that food!!

35d63a9a-8d11-4107-a876-1947ef9a7d35

After we stuffed our faces full of delicious Asian cuisine we took our dogs to the dog park because we felt really bad that they had to be locked up when Niko was here. Haha we probably would have taken them to the park anyway though. We’re always at the dog park, but when you have 3 border collies it’s basically necessary.

img_5265

This photo is actually from Wednesday, but like I said, we’re always there and I liked this photo.Β 

After the dog park we chilled at home for a little bit. Niko kept barking/howling last night so he woke us up quite a few times last night. That coupled with all the running around we did, we were both exhausted and ended up napping. It was really nice though. πŸ™‚ And then at 5 pm Luke had to go to his weekend job and now Β here I am at 6:14 pm. I’m currently washing our couch cushion covers because Niko got them all dirty. I also desperately need to vacuum and mop because Niko got wet and muddy and then came into my kitchen and shook mud everywhere…So I guess I’m going to go deal with that right now.

I hope you had a great Friday! I know I sure did!!

Thursday Things

Oh man, things definitively took an interesting turn Tuesday/yesterday!

So Tuesday night, Luke subbed on his boss’s softball team. Something he was very happy to do, as he isn’t on his own softball team this year. But in the second inning of the first game (it was a double header) he was trying to slide home but he ended up falling and hitting his head off the ground pretty hard. He said right afterwards he had tunnel vision for a few minutes and was a little bit disoriented. So he told his boss that there was a good chance that he was either going to be late to work on Wednesday or just may not come in at all. And since his boss saw him fall and heard the sound his head made when it hit the ground, he said that was absolutely fine.

So yesterday Luke slept until about 8 am (about 2 hours later than he usually gets up), but when he woke up he was a little bit dizzy. So after a little bit of debate with me (he for real got dressed and ready to go into work) I convinced him to stay home, because I really thought he needed a little bit of rest. But of course Luke is stubborn and couldn’t actually sit at home and rest. We ended up taking Finn to one dog park by himself, then we ran home, grabbed Lily and Dean, and then took all three of them to a different dog park haha. Luckily after walking around a little bit, Luke said he felt a lot better so maybe a little bit of moving around was good for him. πŸ˜‰

img_4950

Finn, Dean, and Lily. My babies are so pretty. πŸ™‚

After our second dog park adventure, we stopped at a Sprout’s, which is about 5 minutes from the dog park (and this dog park is about 30 minutes from our house). Originally just to get lunch, but we also ended up getting walnuts (we haven’t been to a Sprout’s for a while and forgot how great buying stuff in bulk can be hahaha), and water and disposable cups so we could give the dogs water, who we had left in the car. Yes, we did indeed leave the dogs in the car on a hot summer day, but we were also parked in the shade, and left the car running with the air conditioner on full blast. We also didn’t have our spare key, so we had to leave the doors unlocked, but our dogs are all super protective/territorial so we really weren’t worried about it. They were cool, comfortable, would keep the car from being stolen, and we were only in the store for a few minutes anyway.

img_4968

Side note; I tried kombucha for the first time yesterday. Not bad!!

Well whenever we were walking back out to the car, some lady was looking into our car windows, looking all worried, so Luke told me to go run out there before she decided to break a window or call the police. Now, I totally understand why someone would be worried about dogs locked in a car on a hot day if the car wasn’t running. Hell, I’d probably be one of the first people to go help the dogs. But again, OUR CAR WAS RUNNING AND THE AC WAS ON!! Trust me, they were absolutely fine!! And I know for a fact Lily was growling at her from the driver’s seat, and I have a feeling Dean and Finn have been growling at her from the back seat. So I ran up to the car, opened the door and told them they were all being good puppies. The lady didn’t look too happy, but she walked back to her car. Good riddance to her. People are too nosy sometimes, and if she would have tried anything I feel like one of the dogs would have nipped at/bitten her. Oh well, it all ended well, so that’s all that matters. πŸ™‚

Anyway, after all of that we went home, made some pickles, and then spent the rest of the day playing Story Of Seasons on our Nintendo 3DS’s. Good times! Plus I’m very glad that Luke spent several hours sitting and relaxing. πŸ™‚

 

So that was all yesterday. Today kinda ended up being pretty boring though. πŸ˜‰

I had intended to get up early and do a 5 mile run, but oh man I just couldn’t. I woke up at 5 and I was just so fucking tired (and after looking at my sleep chart thingy I can see why…). So I tried to go back to sleep (but I feel like I kept waking up a little bit), and eventually go up at 7:30. So there’s that, but I’m also crazy sore. Probably because of all of the work in the garden earlier this week. DOMS definitely caught up with me today haha. So today ended up being an impromptu rest day, but there was absolutely no way I running would have went well or have even been a good idea, so I’m not too worried about it. πŸ™‚

So I haven’t exactly done much today, but it was nice to take a little break. πŸ™‚ And hopefully I’ll be able to run and have fun while doing it tomorrow morning. Anyway, today I cleaned up the house a little bit, did a some yoga, played some more Story Of Seasons, and that was pretty much it haha.

Anyways that’s all I’ve got for today, I suppose. Happy Thursday!
