Sloth Sunday: Mimosa’s and Hummingbirds

20121007-200245.jpgBecause I was behind on overall mileage this week, I went out and did 4 this morning. Not a hard effort, but good enough. And a few more miles in my new Brooks Pure Flow shoes. Michael had my Garmin so I have to guess that it was somewhere around 46 minutes. After yesterday’s smoking 5k, it was ok.

The rest of the day consisted of football and the the Arizona Center. It was AWESOME weather and we just sat outside with my sister and talked at Starbucks. I tried the Salted Caramel Mocha Frapp. It was GOOD. How fun!

Then, it reverted to Mimosa Sunday with The Good Year, 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race and a PF Chang’s bagged dinner. What can I say. Sometimes dinner comes from a bag. I did add extra chicken. Which needed to be defrosted. That it itself was an effort. Especially after polishing off a bottle of champagne by myself.

This is a picture I caught outside my office window on Sat. Cat TV lives on. I LOVE hummingbirds.

I miss my friends back in NC. But texting with J helps every day.


Tuesday2: Recovery and Recovery

Random Twitter pic from today.  Solo, recovering from his time at camp.

Maybe Vegas turned into the worlds largest cruise ship. And I picked up one of the those nasty viruses from the elevator buttons.  Needless to say, stomach issues changed any plans I had for a run Tues morning.  And the issues are not going away.  Hopefully I can get a few miles in on Wed.  The half marathon is on Saturday.

Meals were no walk on the wild side due to aforementioned issues.  Breakfast was a protein bar and coffee.

Lunch was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with veggie straws. (AWFUL picture.  I had come so far.)  Then I braved just a few carrots and a nectarine.

We went out to dinner.  I had roast chicken, a sweet potato and veggies.  That didn’t sit well at all.  And I ordered the blandest think I could.

We are catching up on the blind auditions of The Voice.  Teams are bigger this season.  And damn!  Did anyone see the RHONJ Reunion.  I want to smack Teresa with a frying pan.  Amazing Race started and I already have my favorites.  You have to love the goat farmers.  And the metal rocker/lawyer team.  I have a few more shows to catch, mainly Greys Anatomy.

You chime in….with unresolved stomach issues and no runs since last Wed, would you try to gut out the half marathon on Sat?  I was using it as just another training long run.  No expectations on time or pace.  But I could also downgrade to the 5k or just volunteer.  Thought I would ask.
