I ran 3.5 miles this morning. I planned on running more but I was a bit tired and I have no idea why because I’ve been sort of lazy lately and I slept in the last few days but no matter, I still ran 3.5 miles, so that’s that.
I managed to take some spectacular photos of some of the wildflowers and plants in my yard today. In case you don’t follow me on instagram and I have no idea why you wouldn’t, but just in case, here are a few of those pics:
Yesterday I finally managed to clean up the home gym located in the man cave. I had to work up the courage to go up there and clean it because it’s a man cave and inhabited mostly by men so there should be no further explanation needed. Anyway, after cleaning I hopped on the weight machine with delusional thoughts of jumping in right where I left off, like 5 months ago, but that didn’t happen. I did do 11 leg extensions with 30 pounds of weight and then I ran downstairs and ate a cupcake because you gotta have balance people.
I did finish my race calendar yesterday. GO ME! I picked quite a few races just because they look like so much fun and then some I really want to run competitively. As usual I probably picked too many but here it is, in all its overachieving glory, my 2014 race calendar:
