I managed to make it through almost my entire bedroom (closet included!) before dwindling into a pile of exhaustion. Some gems of my purging process are the following: Life to Do List (generated in Stats class 10.22.05), Qualities (a list of 42 qualities that I would like a mate to have)*, as well as future children's names, meanings and origins (wtf Jerbear?).
Guess what Life List Goal is going to be knocked off the list May 16th?!?!? You betcha. :)
After filling up two garbage bags of things to take to the Goodwill (and filling up my trash with things to toss) it was off to the gym for my easy 7 miler. I grabbed a couple of magazines and read along while I plodded the miles away. A chica next to me was running the same pace (roughly) so I just zoned in on our legs hitting the belt at the same time and our pony tails bouncing back and forth in unison (via the window's reflection). The run was really nothing to write home about, which is a bummer because it seems like all of my runs lately have been awesome! fantastic! 5 gold stars! worthy.
I did the 7 miles in 1:06:28 for a pace of 9:30.
Tuesday I just could not bring myself to run. I was tired and my body was all sorts of creaky/achy/painy. I did up some yoga to loosen up the muscles and calm down the mind. Small highlight: I was able to hold crow's pose longer than I have ever been able to before! Yay me. But I was kind of freaking out: Where the heck is my running mojo???
When I woke up Wednesday morning I clearly had the answer: blech. I'm sick. No wonder my body is achy. No wonder it's taking longer to recover from my runs than normal. No wonder I don't feel like running. My body is trying to use every extra ounce to get healthy.
*Yes, when compared to the infamous "list" N stacks up quite well. His failing points: #2 Lefthanded. #5 plays guitar. #13 NOT a Vikings fan. #14 Preferably a Packers fan. 38 for 42 isn't *too* bad I guess. ;)
How do YOU stack up to "the list"? That is...if you can read my crazy handwriting... :p
