In no particular order, here's what I'm thinking:
1. I did a 9.5 mile run yesterday and feel GREAT about it. My plan is to build my base miles to 20 - 22 per week, and then start adding long runs to train for endurance.
2. Got some new running shoes -- Mizunos, which I love. It's funny -- Tim buys whatever is on sale for $40 or less. I guess we balance each other out, cuz I spend a fortune (relatively) on running shoes. Also, he cuts his own hair (free) and I -- well, again I spend a fortune by comparison. Ok, so I don't want to think about this one anymore...
3. If you read my old blog, you may remember where a guy at the nail salon asked me an insulting question. Here's the instant replay, for anyone who missed it:
Twenty-something Vietnamese nail guy: How many grandchildren you have?
Me: Excuse me?
T-s V ng: How many GRANDchildren you have?
Me: My kids are 12 and 10 -- I'd better NOT have any grandchildren!
When I see him now, I glare at him.
Ok, so here's a conversation at Costco yesterday:
Guy who checks your receipt at the door: Hello, young lady!
Me: Wow -- thanks!
Guy: How is it that you never age? I've seen you here for years, but you never get any older!
Me: Well, my new best friend (yes, I did say that), you just made my day. Watch me as I skip to my car!
I'm still smiling thinking of that.
4. Went to the gym today and did upper body weights and an intense lower body weight workout. I'm now using 12 pounds weights for shoulders, which is exciting cuz after the injury I could only lift 3 pounds, and it was tough, tough, tough.
