I'm a married, step-mother, the 4th of 5 kids. I'm livin' the dream as a manager in retail, putting that English degree to great use. Oh, and I'm sarcastic.

I can’t believe I didn’t think of “Poultry Seasoning” as my Salty alter-ego.

I’m starting to feel like I’m back on the spice rack these days.  It was a week with 5 real outings and 2 days off.  Physically, I only had slight abdominal discomfort one day, but it was later in the day.  So glad it didn’t happen during a run.  Not that it was severe enough to keep me from moving, but I just don’t want to make an association of that discomfort and running.  The excuse list doesn’t need any additions.

This week, I pulled off the beginner program‘s week 4.  It was a little rough, but I plugged along.  My sleep has been thrown off, so I didn’t get out as early as I had been.  I can’t believe how much difference the temperatures can be within a couple hours.  Some days this week I thought I wouldn’t make it.  Sweat can evaporate quickly in this climate, but it didn’t happen fast enough some mornings.

Sweat dripping in my eyes means I may need to get my Olivia Newton John on—let’s get physical! Image from sportheadband.com

Sunday: OFF

Monday: 3 run/1 walk.  I thought I could possibly skip to 5 run/1 walk, but decided not to push it.

Tuesday: 3 run/1 walk.  Got a late morning start and wished it would have been earlier instead.

Wednesday: 3 run/1 walk.  Made it out earlier.  Almost lost it when an unleashed dog came around a corner with no owner in sight.  The owner then came around the bend and nothing happened between the dog and me, thankfully.

Thursday: OFF

Friday: 3 run/1 walk.  I don’t really remember much about this one.

Saturday: 3 run/1 walk.  ROUGH!!!  Didn’t sleep well because I was in big “I HATE MY JOB” mode after working the closing shift at the store on Friday.  I had to open the store on Saturday morning, so I had to get the run in early.  It was rather chilly, but that was fine with me.  I warmed up in no time.

On to a new week!
