Monday - Rest

Tuesday -4 scheduled, 4 completed I trotted this out on the treddy at home and cried. I was watching the movie Flight and the plane crash scene at the beginning really freaked my shiz out. So, here I am trotting on the treddy, breaking down crying, alone at home. My legs felt good. Like, real good after coming from such a high mileage week. And I even kicked up the pace at the end.

Wednesday - 8 scheduled, 0 completed I really didn't want to do this, and I wanted to job hunt a little more. I think that since this is a cutback week, it is ok for extra rest days? Well, that is my excuse.

Thursday - 4 scheduled, 0 completed I spent an hour filling out an online job app. They take so freakin long. Decided to make today a rest day. Well, and it was V-day. I did get something from the BF. He even brought me a chocolate covered strawberry! I think I may have done like, 2 loads of laundry, so I felt like I accomplished something. :-)

I was given the opportunity to try these CORE Defender meal bars today. A review is coming, but FYI-I really did like them. I have tried 2 out of the 3 flavors I was given and liked the Raw Raisin Almond (I had it on Friday for dinner) the best.

Friday - Rest.
Saturday - 10 scheduled, 10 completed I was looking forward to this run. It was the nicest day outside in however long. I trotted to a new playlist that I made up this week. All DJ BL3ND for the whole session. It flowed from one song to another and the beat is pretty constant. Totally recommend this.

My playlist
I also noticed this week that my weight is down. Its been constant so it isn't water weight or anything like that but I am down 5 pounds this month and 20 since New Years Day 2012. I don't know if these high mileage weeks are good for me or work stress is good for me, but I am not complaining. I am just gonna try to keep doing what I am doing. If I can get down another 10 pounds and a pant size, I will be at my high school size. Anyways, I wanted to celebrate my weight loss with pizza and a pitcher of beer. ;-) Today was the best day in such a long time!
From Saturday's post
Sunday - 6 scheduled, 6 completed  This was not like Saturday. It was windy and instead of an out and back loop like I prefer, I kinda just ran around the greenbelt, going over the bridges, back and forth.

What I really wanted to do was run some hills. I had some personal thoughts in my head I needed to psychically put out into the universe, so I just did that on this run. No water or ipod with me. I did take my phone. It was windy and that was so morally draining. It really felt like speedwork! I wasn't really cold because I thought I dressed well, but that wind can really suck the soul out of you.

Post slog
How was your week this week? Did you get in to Robie this year? I did! It is the week before my 50K but I am sure I will survive!

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
