I see the 2012 recap bandwagon....and I am just going to lollygag behind it for another 11 days. I mean, I still have 11 more awesome days of 2012 to enjoy and some pretty great things might happen. Probably nothing earth-shattering, just mildly amazing, but hey, I'm a newfound optimist. Only took me 30 years to become one, but being one is pretty rad.
I ran 7 miles Tuesday night, 3.5
miles last night, and 5 miles tonight. Getting out of bed has been a
struggle ever since I started enjoying my cushy new gig. This time last
year I was getting up at 4:30am on a regular basis to get to work by
6am. Now I'm lazily hitting the snooze button 3 times at 7am. Oh well,
I suppose as long as I know the price I pay for evening running.
hasn't been that bad actually. Tuesday night's run was great.
Yesterday was not too shabby either. Tonight, I felt a little sluggish
getting into the first mile, but then I started to feel good again. The
top of my foot is still sore from dropping a 150 pound artificial tree
directly on the top of it a few weeks ago. I think I must have bruised
the bone. Maybe. All I know is that it is still nagging me.
non-running news, I must say that it is super weird to not feel
overwhelmed and exhausted with the month of December at work. I am
actually getting sleep, not eating Peppermint Bark for meals, and
feeling like I am not super stressed about getting it all done. Look! I
even have time to write a blog!
The best news? I have
Christmas Eve off! How great is that?? I cannot remember a time in the
past 10 years that I have had both days off. I will probably just putz
around the house in my pjs all day, but whatever... I'm just thankful
that I took the leap of faith and stepped outside my comfort zone.
Sometimes the grass can be greener.
