Ok - so last night we took Emry to soccer practice, and I thought I would be a nice soccer mom, and buy sustenance for everyone.
My first instinct was fruit - But, then, I ran out of time.
My second instinct was Coffee, Donuts/Munchkins - However, it was really HOT (where did the 90 degree temps come from? Come on Mother Nature - A little a little consistency, please?) so I opted for a small box of munchkins and 6 donuts.
I figured the kids would like the munchkins - and 6 donuts could be split between some adults.
And, so, I bring them - I present them, say, "Anyone like a snack?"
All I heard were crickets - and - a few "I'm on a diet" - and the dad's clearly wanted ones - but, just didn't take.
I'm sorry - since when have donuts become the enemy?
|Playing Goalie - He's so cute|
Yes, Yes, I know - I'm on a healthy journey too - and I do stray away from the sweets - but, on a whole - donuts are accepted! One munchkin... half a donut - not going to kill me.
So, Klay and I had a donut - and a couple of munchkins and watched Emry play soccer
But, seriously - Who doesn't like donuts?
Ugh - I should have just not gotten anything - or figured out a way to get fruit.
Just tried to do a nice thing, you know what I mean?
So - practice came and went - I helped out a little during - and then, I drove home.
Klay had picked up Emry again - so I was able to just drive solo.
|This chick sold us our phones. |
She also thought I was her age -
23 years old - Isn't she sweet?
No let me drain your youth.
I met up with my dad, and we went to the Verizon store - because it was National New Phone Day. Well, not NATIONAL new phone day - but, for me it was.
I ended up with a Galaxy Note 3 - and, not going to lie - still figuring it out. It comes with a cool stylus - and has a bunch of neat features - but, there are some new - idiosyncrasies that are going to take time to figure out.
For instance - with my old phone - if you connected it to your computer, it showed up as a DRIVE - it was something that I could drag and drop photos from - yada yada - Not with this one. I have to select and copy - and upload - one at a time.
UGH - right? UGH.
I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, and I'll figure it out - but, jeez - Not understanding no fangled technology - means I'm getting OLD.
Speaking of OLD - I'm finding DEEP wrinkles on my face - DUDE, BODY, I know we are almost 30 - but, can I have the skin of a 20 something UP UNTIL THE WEDDING DAY?
So, this is a total rambling post, and I'm sorry - but, I've never had so much to discuss on a Tuesday - and I just LOVE it!
How are things going with my running challenge for this week?
Today I ran 5.62 miles in 55 minutes
Let me show you the breakdown - I broke my run up into intervals - allowing my body to recover as needed.
8 minutes 45 seconds @ 7.0 mph followed by 5 minutes and 15 seconds @ 4.5 mph
I did this 3 times (4.20 miles in 42 minutes)
4 minutes @ 7.0 mph followed by 1 minute @ 4.5 mph
I did this 2 times (1.07 miles in 10 minutes)
3 minutes @ 7.0mph
Average Pace: 9:47min/miles
SIDE NOTE: Taking pictures with the new phone - easy and awesome - however, when I took a picture of my ending stats for this run - I had this STAMP image pop up, and took a picture of me taking a picture - I edited out of the instagram shot - but, let me tell you - super funny... And totally not showing you it. HAHAHAHAHA!
This brings me to a weekly total of: 11.08 miles
I have 11.42 miles to go to reach my goal.
I think if I can run 2-3 more days - I will achieve this goal.
I can definitely do a majority of it in 2 - but, I might need a little extra sprint to make up the difference.
Any advice? - Any of my running bloggers have a few tips?
Well, now I'm here - at work, and all I want to do is play with my new phone - that keeps flashing BLUE at me - it must mean I have a message. I'm so used to my phone vibrating to tell me about notifications.
I'm going to take my lunch break - and run over to the mall, and buy a case for this bad boy - something that will protect it... you know, from me.
SIGHS - let me get to it - Here I come WORK!
Happy Tuesday Friends!
