6 - miles i'm running with alex this morning. i'm a bit apprehensive about it. i say this every single time i run with alex (you know, the two times it's actually worked out that our schedules are open enough to make it happen) because i feel like my "long runs" have gone by the wayside and she's out there running badass runs like errday. i've run more than 5 miles only a handful of time since marathon training ended and though i'm totally fine with that, as i'm getting back into higher distances for half training, it has me a little nervous. why is it that i think when i don't run long for a few weeks i will lose all my abilities? does anyone else feel this way? pretty much as soon as i walk out of the weight room i'm also convinced my muscles start shrinking. yes i know this is dumb.
xxxx - amount of money i dropped yesterday on plane tickets. i don't even want to put that number out in the universe because it pains me so much but it was in fact four digits. tex and i are taking a trip to the west coast this summer for a wedding and we decided to tack on a visit to his best friend in seattle while we're there. let me just tell you - buying two people's tickets for a three-flight trip? not cheap at all. my wallet is hurting. in other news, i did get a crap ton of southwest points for buying the flights, so i have another free flight in my near(er) future now. silver lining!
5 - number of days i have to work next week. WHAT? this is unheard of. it's been almost a month since i had a full five day work week. spoiled? yes. devastated? totally. thank god for mlk weekend the weekend after so that i can get back to these four day work weeks.
3 - mornings i had eggs this week despite that i'm not sure i even wanted them. a lot of times when it comes to meals i'm indecisive - i want lots of things. for dinner that's not really a problem - i just decide whatever i want based on what i have in my fridge ever since i stopped meal planning quite as much. the problem is in the morning my brain isn't really working right away...i pretty much have my eggs fried up, my banana cut into slices and my toast toasted before i'm even awake. it's skillful, no doubt about that, but breakfast has been getting a little boring around these parts. maybe it's time for another shake up challenge with my favorite meal of the day.
3 (again) - blends i get to meet up with today! i'm running with alex and then we're meeting up with megan and allison for a lunch/coffee date. i am super pumped to see alex and allison again and i am so glad we managed to nail down megan before she heads back to school. so many meetups the next few months mean i'm a very happy blogger.
14 - items i bought from the old navy active line in an online spree. i have always been a huge fan of their active gear and i swear i binge bought all this stuff before every blogger in america started writing sponsored posts about them...not that there's a damn thing wrong with sponsored posts, but i want to retain my old navy street cred. i'm an original fan. love the stuff and for the price it's quality is super high which i remember thinking was surprising when i first started wearing it...you know WAY back in the day before all the cool kids were ;) so far my favorite are the racerback tanks i bought, but honestly i really love it all. holy shit i need to clean my mirror that is horrifying. sorry guys.
any meaningful numbers for you this week? i'm sure she's not staying totally up on blogs this weekend but i imagine that lindsay's number might be 39.3 since she's running the goofy challenge and that's how many miles she'll be covering today and sunday. wish her luck, but she's such a rockstar she won't need it.
