I have finally identified my bloggers block. I feel that a post does not exist without a picture, which isn’t true but I still feel like it is. My phone is my primary means of picture taking and my phone is absolutely shot. It’s an iPhone 3 people, yes, that is still a really (semi)usable thing. The backlight works about 10% of the time, the battery lasts ~20 minutes with use and it get to about 124 degrees while not using it. Yes I realize these are very first world problems, but they are responsible for my blogger’s block!
1. Friday night was fun filled with a girls night dinner and a movie. We went to Zia’s, a wonderful taco/mexican place and had a delicious meal before devouring an awesome move. We saw Gone Girl and I was NOT disappointed. The movie actually stays true to the book and the acting was a little too perfect if you ask me. Spoiler Alert (sorta): They both play their parts so freaky and true to the characters in the book its almost insane. Well it is insane if we are being honest about it!
2. College football was ridiculous. I hardly pay very much attention to college football, my big day is Sunday. After getting my long run in and finally spending an hour cleaning out my car I sat down on the couch, without my kindle, and watched upset after upset and was actually riveted.
3. Sunday was amazing, the weather finally feels like football and we made our first true “football food.” We made an easy crock pot beef stew. I love eating real stick to your bones food, especially when I am training pretty hard and not feeling too terrible about it.
Last big week:
This is my last big training week before my taper. I had 8×800 Yasso intervals in 3:25 today and nailed them, even feeling pretty good after dreading them all day! I have 5 easy tomorrow, 40 minute tempo Wednesday, Rest Thursday, 10 miles pace Friday, 20 miles Saturday then immediately commence taper!! I feel energized after my hard run today going so well and ready to finish out this week hard heading into taper.
Moral of this story: This girl needs a new phone, if anyone out there has an old iPhone on AT&T, help a sister out and I will finally return to semi-regular blogging!
Happy Monday y’all!
