It's official, I miss it.

It's been about 2 weeks (give or take) since my last run and I think I'm slipping into withdrawal or maybe a depression.  At first I was cool with my hiatus, my pace had been sucking and my mood not great about it so the break was welcomed.  Now not so much.  Don't get me wrong, I've been far from slouching.  Spending days either in the pool, yoga, or a barre class but enough is enough.  I'm sick of looking at schedules, I want to go on my own time.  My arms, chest and abs are sick of being sore, those little underused muscles are screaming for me to find my running shoes and forget about them again.  It doesn't help either that the woman in front of me today was one of the unlucky souls to have purchased the see through lululemon pants and didn't realize it when she put on her magenta thong for class.  Why me?!?!?  I almost pulled her aside after class but decided against it, next week I will change sides of the room for sure.  So what's the plan you ask?  Since the heat wave broke I'm thinking about a run in the next few days but unfortunately I'm stuck with less running and more pool/yoga/class types stuff for now.  Hopefully with less see through pants and magenta thongs in my future.

Where have I been?

Sorry, life has been busy.  Injuries have slowed me down and stress has kept me away.  There was the whole moving to TX saga that took over our life for the last 3 weeks and I couldn't write about it and therefore felt like I couldn't write at all.  For now we are staying put and I'm back on the blog.  As for the injury report, I'm not sure exactly what it is.  I'm calling it a combo of angry toe with a touch of I'm sick of the humidity sprinkled with funky lab work.  So basically I feel like sh*t, huff and puff on my runs and have slowed down.  To combat this I've limited the training and am spending more time on the bike and in the pool.  Swam for 45 mins this morning and if it wasn't for the annoying pinch of my goggles I'd still be there just lapping away the day.  Last night did some grass running for the first and likely final time.  Even with fun company it was akward, I'll take the sore toe and be on the roads thank you very much.  Tomorrow I haven't decided if I'm running or riding but I need to do something, trying to prevent the collection of any extra lbs during this lazy period.

On the food note, I've become obsessed with making popsicles.  Tonight's combo was 2 banana's, coco power, agave, full fat coconut milk, peanut butter chips, vanilla extract all whizzed together in the blender and currently freezing.  Can't wait!!!

Swam 1 mile today
