Here I was thinking that I needed a blog post. What should I write about? What is inspiring me at this very moment…? Then I realized that it is Thursday and we all know that Thursdays are for Thinking Out Loud! So in the name of random thoughts, I’m linking up with Amanda at runningwithspoons.com!
Random Thought 1: Did I ever mention that I made my 100 mile goal in March? Well, I did but it wasn’t pretty. I slacked off in the beginning and middle of the month and had to run quite a few miles in the final 10 days of the month to make it happen. Because of that, I was burned out and have already taken way too many days off in April and have been sporadic at best. But I got back to it on Sunday with a nice 6 mile run and have managed to get in a pretty good run daily since then. I even did intervals this week and I HATE intervals! On the bright side, it’s so nice that the sun is up earlier and there is nothing more beautiful than running towards a colorful sunrise!
Random Thought 2: Our relocation is getting closer and I’m starting to panic! I like to plan… and to have things scheduled… and to be prepared. This buying and selling of homes is so up-in-the-air! Contingencies upon contingencies, my goodness! Lining up closing dates so no one has to be homeless for a week, and don’t even get me started about packing! I just can’t wait for it to be over.
Random Thought 3: I start my 21 Day Reset with Laura Peifer next week and I am a little apprehensive about it. The first week means no sugar – no sugar substitutes, etc. I know I am always saying how I need to quit the sugar, but now that it’s looming… I just hope I can stick to the plan. It’s only 7 days and then I can have a little sugar (I think anyway). The reason why I never try detox or reset or any other crazy elimination plan is because I don’t want to give my kids the wrong impression about food. The good part about Laura’s 21 Day Reset is that the meals still look fairly normal. She provided a recipe book as a guide and I can find things in it that I don’t even think anyone around my house will even notice! I’ll update you off and on during the next 3 weeks about my progress.
Random Thought 4: My 11 year old daughter is participating in a Girls on The Run Chapter at her school this year. They run their practice 5K next week – yikes! I hope she doesn’t hate running afterwards! It sounds like in practice they never track distance, so I’m wondering if any of the girls can actually run a 5K…But, as my husband says, I’m not the coach, so just trust it! I signed up to be her “buddy” at the real 5K coming up in May. I’m pretty excited about it and hope she is too. I think I’ll get us some matching wild socks (I’ve been wanting a pair of compression socks…) and probably complementing Sparkly Soul headbands!
There you have it! Four completely random Thinking Out Loud thoughts from me on this great Thursday.
What crazy things have you been thinking? Have you ever tried a Reset? Any advice on moving?
Until Next Time,
