Random Thoughts

I don't have much to say today, so here are some random thoughts:

I'm Full

I haven't worked out in a week and I'm feeling it, after all this week included some pretty awesome meals and delicious treats. Think big chocolate cake, pumpkin pie, cheesecake, brussel sprouts, turkey, stuffing, corn casserole, etc.

I'm feeling sluggish and tired today and I'm hoping this isn't an indication of how the entire holiday season will feel. 

I'm very thankful I have a little 10k on my schedule in the next week. I haven't run 6 miles in a single run for quite some time. As a matter of fact, I think the last time I hit six miles was when Sue and I had a fluke of a run and ended up with 9 miles because we both felt good. Those are the runs the fill me up!

The Goals

I refuse to let my athleticism rule my life again. It is just a hobby that I enjoy and want to continue to enjoy. However, I have decided that my schedule needs a triathlon in 2014. I am going to have to figure out which one. Here's the criteria the race must meet:
  1. Cheap
  2. Flat
  3. Cheap
  4. Olympic Distance
  5. Cheap
  6. Close to home (or close to my parents)
  7. Cheap
If you know of anything that would qualify, let me know.

Expletives

I need to quit swearing! Or at least simmer it down a bit. I speak in expletives all the time. Really, I just speak in exclamation points!!! Read a text message from me, and you might find yourself wishing I would quit yelling at you. I found the "f" word roll off my tongue WAY to easily while I was driving with my mom the other day. Now, she hears this word from me all the time, but it wasn't necessary in this context. 

A context it was totally appropriate? When I said the following earlier this year: "I did an effing half ironman!!!!!!!!!!"

To Do Lists

I have a number of to do lists written for this week. Basically, my life is scripted through Wednesday of this week (and yes, writing this blog will be checked off the list the minute I hit publish). I don't like lists because I think the cause you to keep your head down and not focus on the things that matter, those little interactions with friends and neighbors that really mold your life. I will use my lists through Christmas because I have so much to get done, but I won't be too excited about it. What I am excited about are all those moments with friends and family that have been sketched into my to do list, oh and the exercise that is also 'scheduled'. 

Next Week

I'm sure I'll be back with something a little more exciting next week, for now I am going to ride out my Thanksgiving coma and go to work...
