Sunday-Did my usual sleep until I can’t sleep anymore, which is usually around 6:30, then I got up, ate some mocha-nutty oats, and got dressed for the gym. Got there 15 mins before they opened, oops! Had a great strength routine, although I did notice that afterwards when I went to roll out my legs, that I have a huge knot in the right calf. Bad news. Should have had more hydration (I had a mini bottle of G2 and water, but should have had more). I sipped a little water and tea as we strolled all over town, but not enough to make up for the loads I sweated during my run. Rolled the legs again last night before bed and the left leg is fine, the right leg is still there. This may take some work.
After the gym, I showered there, and set out on my quest for work pants. Well guess what? Ann Taylor opens at 11 and I was there at 9:45. I waited for them to open and found nothing Why can’t they just sell me newer versions of what’s in my closet? I cannot wear curvy fit, which is apparently all of the rage everywhere (I don’t even think curvy would have worked when I was curvier). Had the same luck at Gap, Banana Republic, and NY&Co. I need to replace at least 3-4 of really nice dress pants in my closet that are worn out from washing or dry cleaning. And I’d rather not alter them, unless I have to. I want pants that can be worn with kitten heels or less (I try not to wear heels during training). I couldn’t even find pants to alter though, nothing fit
By time I finished with that ordeal and got no pants, it was past noon. I still had to go to Sprouts and HEB for quick groceries and I was starting to get hungry (got an apple and some diet Sweet Leaf tea to hold me over). I ran home and threw together some shrimp tacos, which were good, but probably needed a side, because I was hungry less than 2 hours later. Started laundry that I could do without Dan’s clothes and attempted to clean.
Next thing I knew it was 6 pm and Dan was home from his work trip! I started on the rest of the laundry around 8 and we watched a little tv. The cleaning all fell by the wayside once he got home, so my house still looks somewhat dirty. At least we have clean clothes, a clean living room, and a semi-clean kitchen.
Hoping for a little more productivity on Monday evening. So far it’s not looking good, I am still not sleeping well, so all I want right now is a nap! On the fence right now between a nap and doing my cross on the stairmill at the gym after work.
I have a long week ahead, going to SA for work Wed-Fri and likely going to New Braunfels for the weekend (per Dan’s request) to spend a little river time one last time before the summer is over. We are both out of town for work for close to a week starting next Thursday, so that ought to be interesting. Just looking ahead over the next 2 months, I have to move THREE long runs to a Friday instead of Saturday, which means coming in late to work or taking those days off. This season seems to be way more packed than last year already!
