I’m home! It was a great “long weekend” in Phoenix and now it’s time to hit the ground running. Ideally. I’m trying to figure out how much work I can get done today before I teach (teaching work, mainly—there’s always stuff to be done outside of actual teaching and I was already behind) and I wanted to blog…and really I should just be practicing.
I got back to the gym this morning. It was nice to do something other than running (ha, as if I’ve really done much lately other than the half…) and I almost enjoyed doing squats. I was extra strong this morning though, which was awesome. I did several sets with 115 pounds which is a lot for me!
Nice to be home to this cat! Chris sent me that photo whilst I was gone.
Even though this one is pretty sweet, especially now that he’s settled down—he was a VERY feisty kitten!
The trick to instagramming a good cat picture is to figure out what setting is best. Albergo looks good on “Lo-Fi”, we determined.
The best part of marathon training: even though I am tired of running now,(arguably that has been going on for awhile) I still need to run, and the plan has 12 miles this weekend. I hope it’s really cold, like it was the other weekend! (I’d use my sarcastic font so you were clear, but generally everything I say is sarcastic.)
I like this picture from the race. I’m WALKING and still have that expression of great pain. Walking is hard, evidently.
