I'm An Addict

I took a full 3 weeks off from any sort of working out after my marathon. Well, I moved house by myself 2 days after that, which I was more sore from that then the run... but I'm not counting that as a workout. I needed the last few weeks to get settled and into my new single runner girl routine. :-)

During those few weeks, I have missed running. And working out. And moving my body. Like, really missed it.

Oh man, I craved it. I was getting a little twitchy and a little cranky. That's why I think I'm an addict.

I needed to work my muscles. 3 weeks off and a desk job during the day has me sad. I have started doing daily planks and few moves with some dumbbells I have. I sneak in some lifting at work when no one is watching. Along with some selfies. Can we keep all that a secret?

I kinda want to get other body parts as gnarly as my leggies.

I have a little more free time on weekends so a short routine of burpees with a Bosu ball, planks and squats always happens before a run. Burpees with the Bosu always wears me out and it gets hard to lift that thing up after a bit. (How much does a Bosu weigh???) But, it feels GOOD to work my body!

I missed out on an evening Halloween 5K race on Saturday because I went out on a date. I think I should have made time to do the race. But I did 7 miles with a nice boy on Sunday and it felt AMAZING! I mean the run felt amazing. I'm sure the nice boy feels nice too.

Today, I thankfully do not have to work a 14 hour day with the 2 jobs I have. My day job gave us a treat and let us go home 5 hours early. Guess what I get to go do before I go to my 2nd job?

I get to take care of my addiction for an hour. :-) I'm going running.

What makes you a running addict? Does your body crave movement?


  1. I'm so glad you're back, I know I get cranky and mean when "off" too long. Congrats on the date too!

    1. Thanks! Glad to know I'm not the only one that gets cranky when I have not worked out in a while!

  2. I miss running, but it's been way too crazy the last few weeks. I have a plan for November though! =)

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…
