I'm linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for another Think Out Loud Thursday.
1. This week is killing me.
Not literally, of course. I haven't been able to get out and do much and it is really dragging me down. I skipped my normal yoga yesterday because my ankle didn't feel up to it. Once I thought about it, I should have gone and just modified a bunch of stuff. Plenty of things don't actually require me to be standing on the balls of my feet or balancing on one leg. At least I still have tomorrow to go and get sweaty. Life without running feels a little empty (stupid ankle), which is weird because it wasn't that long ago that I wasn't running at all.
2. I finished the AdvoCare challenge!
Just in time, too, because today is an early, long day. I am already exhausted. I tried to drink a cup of coffee when I got to work at 5:30AM, but it just tastes funny now. I've had this problem before when I've given up coffee. I don't doubt that it will pick up again. especially since Starbucks has a new holiday drink. I'll do a write-up about the whole challenge soon. Right after I go eat all the things I've been missing (in moderation, of course).
3. Apparently everyone here has rain on their mind.
Right after I published my post about running in the rain, I saw this post about best places in Portland to run on rainy days. (Don't worry, they have a Seattle one too.) It made me really want to do more trail running. The paths look beautiful and the trees would definitely help block out some of the rain. Plus, it is much softer to run on than the street. Downside: lots and lots of hills.
4. Tomorrow is Halloween.
I have zero plans. Mostly, I am totally fine with that. I could probably find something to do, but why? I'm not really in to dressing up or scary things. I'd rather cuddle up on the couch with a good TV show. Speaking of, I am almost done watching The Office (yes, I am WAY behind on life). Maybe that is my Halloween plan. I hear it might be sad. Don't tell me, though. I want to see how it works out.
5. I am super excited to go home today.
Mostly because I was at work super early. The only plus to that is that I can leave early-ish and not feel bad about it. I mean, I've already been here for 5 hours and it isn't even lunch. Except, I didn't get breakfast, so I am just going to eat now. (Yes, you should always eat breakfast. Yes, it is my first day off AdvoCare and I am already a wreck. My morning involved tight deadlines and needing all 10 fingers on my keyboard working as fast as possible. Don't judge.)
Okay, I am off to get some food. And maybe a nap. Probably just the food.
How's your week going? What are you doing for Halloween?
