Today was hell at work. It’s been a bit less stressed lately but for the last few days, an HR issue has been brewing again. This feud between 2 employees has been going on for years. They hate each other and try to get each other fired. One more than the other but still, I wish they both would just fight it out so I could end their employment. So tomorrow I will be dealing with this all day. I’m a grammar school teacher anymore.
Today was a bit warmer so I knew my run today would not be as enjoyable as yesterday even though I only planned 3.1 miles today. Truthfully, my 6.2 miles yesterday was easier than 3.1 today.
It’s strange how that can be. I am still very sore from the kettlebell workout and I cannot believe after that many days. It’s not the first time that kettlebell routines have left me almost crippled…temporarily.
I hated every single minute of my 3 mile run today. It was just 3 miles and I dreaded it like it was doing burpees for 30 minutes. God, I can’t even imagine that! 🙂 Yesterday, I felt like I could have run a half marathon ore more. Oh well, that’s how it is with running.
How can I hate something so much and read, think, plan about it all time. I get fidgedy when I don’t run but yet try to talk myself out of it everyday. I dread putting on that shoes to hit the road but if I miss a run, I piss, moan and regret it the entire night.
A discussion was going on a running pace on Facebook today about spouses being unsupported in their running efforts. Many were saying how their spouses resent and get mad that their partners spend so much time running and training no matter how the runners go out of way to not impose on their personal time with their families. I am lucky that my husband is a runner but even if he wasn’t, he would never begrudge me doing something that made me healthy and happy. But I am surprised that so many others do not have that support.
My husband knows that every Saturday from now until Oct 19 will be consisting of long runs and me complaining about how tired I am and laying on the couch with feet up the rest of the day! He says he’s good with that because he needs the rest! 🙂 I do keep him going every weekend. 🙂
Well, no sleep for the 2nd night in a row and surely I’ll sleep well tonight. I’m about to head off to bed with Peyton. He comes and gets me every night at about 9pm to go to bed. He loves that extra attention of just he and I.
Neither of our dogs sleep the night with us. They are so big that would never do. I’d let them but Kevin makes them go in the other room.
Off to bed to give Peyton some doggy loving. Eli too but he only stays a few minutes and he’s then off to spend time with his daddy.
We have homemade wine to bottle this coming Sunday. We have about 25 bottles of Strawberry wine and 10 bottles of Blueberry port. We’ve been putting off this bottling for a while. Our brand will be called “Two Bad Dogs” and I’m designing the labels. I can’t wait to try out our wine!
