With the title, imagine saying it like the Count from Sesame Street. Immediately after I realized that’s how I was saying that, I youtube searched a video about him counting, of course. And what did I find?! The count counting up to nine. If you want to return back to your childhood, then go for it. EXCEPT, the count never gets to the mileage that I did today – ten! DOUBLE DEEGITS for sure.
Now, ten doesn’t qualify as a long run to me because of knowing for realzz what a long run is when you get past 16.(Disclaimer: ten is and can still be a P.I.T.A, so I don’t discredit it 🙂 ) But, since it is the longest I’ve ran since my marathon, it called for a momentary celebration. And my celebration you ask? Turning up my radio to “Forever” on my way home and some car singing and dancing. Unfortunately, I don’t have a video for that. You must settle for the Count today 😦
THANKS to the congrats and the love shown for my 10k. Definitely appreciated and really made for a happy Saturday. [I did see Valentine’s Day. If you want a good laugh, then I’d check it out. I also suggest seeing it with an audience of “Taylor Lautner/McDreamy/McSteamy/Bradley Cooper” fans, too. It gives it an added affect. My heart still belongs to Love Actually though…]
Today was a recovery run that I had scheduled for 10 miles. My garmin shut off 3/4ths of the way [Reason #16261813 why I need to upgrade. I’ve got the old school garmin 🙂 Maybe march…I see that the 305 is dropping in price..any suggestions?] so I don’t have the stats. I can say that we did a comfortable, recovery pace ranging from 10-10:30 for the 10 miles. I have to keep reminding myself of the purpose of the recovery run, even if I feel like I want to go faster. Thanks to the ladies who kept me company during the slower run!
[From this point onward…I realized that I am just rambling, but continue reading because I can’t stop lauging] Have a great Sunday (Happy Valentine’s Day – it’s really just another day to me, except this year I have DOUGHNUTS). I have tomorrow OFF, so I have a couple of things I want to do today
- Finish The Lives of Others – It’s been on my Netflix for forever, but I never have 2 someodd hours to really really pay attention and read the subtitles. I started it last night, but then turned it off to go to bed.
- School work – doing school work w/o stress of school the next dayallows me to plan better.
- Dinner party tonight!
- Laundry…yada yada yada, chores…grocery…
I want to watch the OLYMPICS, but I haven’t been following what sports to WATCH. I want to see the bobsleigh! I can appreciate that because of Cool Runnings . To be honest, sometimes I feel like the Jamaican Bobsled Team when I enter a race to run…HAHA. Especially this scene when he has to go to the bathroom before the race, they have a rough start, then crash and burn…So, I’ve trained myself not to write “lol” since high school, but that is honestly what I am doing when I wrote that sentence above and watched the video. I can’t stop laughing…
If you are watching the olympics, what sport do you have your eye on?
