New Things Going On In The New Year

New year,  hello. Good to see you. I did not get out for a run yesterday. I should have. Slacker. I do intend to run after track practice today. I’ll go out a slog my way through a slow and probably uncomfortable 5k run. I need to show my Garmin 310XT Read more →

Ain’t No Snow Gonna Slow Me Down

Monday again. Where did my weekend go? I did have a decent week of workouts. Slowly but surely, I am getting back into a groove. Slowly but surely. No workout Monday. Tuesday I headed to spin class. It went pretty well and I pushed pretty hard the whole time. Wednesday was Read more →

We Meet Again, Monday

Survival Mode

Monday again. I wish weekends were three days instead of two. Or hell, four days. Bring it on. One more week of school, one more week of school, one more week of school. It’s the final week of the quarter, I just have to get through it. Then we have Read more →

The Attempt to Reclaim Motivation

I am so excited this week is drawing to a close. Just have to get through today at school, then I’m throwing Halloween parties for every period on Friday. Because sometimes teachers would rather watch Hocus Pocus and eat candy all day than do work too. Truth. I’m working hard Read more →

Zombie Dreams

This post may be short and mostly incoherent. I feel like a zombie. At least that feeling is appropriate this week. Went to bed late and was up before the sun Saturday. Got basically zero sleep Saturday night. Spent Sunday fighting my eyelids. We dog sat for my parents and Read more →
