What is with this month? I feel like I am still flying by the seat of my pants. Imagine trying to cram stuffing meant for a 15 pound turkey into a tiny duck. Bad analogy (proves my complete lack of brain coherency) but you get the point. Goal of no stressing is kind of not starting out so beautifully.
DC is going to be insane today with the inauguration so you bet your bottom dollar I will not be going anywhere not within walking distance. I don’t need stressful crowds today. Not my jam.
I need to get my marvelous on don’t I….
Marvelous is… it is kind of like a Sunday. I don’t have to go into the office so I only have to work in the running store tonight. That means setting the alarm a bit later for my workout and getting the chance to see a college friend I haven’t seen in ages. You may remember I talked about her right around graduation. She seriously saved my senior year, someone who I was never really close to until then. I am giddy just thinking about our coffee date.
Marvelous is… my Saturday morning. Getting the chance to catch up with A over coffee was what I needed. For my sanity. This girl is real, she is hilarious and kind of kick butt in all the right ways. We chatted for over three hours. I laughed for probably half of that time.
Marvelous is… my runs this weekend. I got a solid ten in both days. Exactly what I needed. They were pain free, soreness free and in beautiful weather. After feeling kind of off last weekend, I needed this boost. Dare I say I feel stronger and faster just two weeks into Best Body Bootcamp?
Marvelous is… my new race plans. So I told you I have three races in a span of four weeks – the Rock n Roll, the Cherry Blossom and the Nike Women Half. I finally decided I think I am going to run the Rock n Roll for fun and then actually try and PR on the other two. Let’s be real, the Nike I have high hopes of Molly and I killing it. I would rather take the Rock n Roll easy for that reason.
Marvelous is… connecting with a fellow blend more this weekend. While we can’t see each other in person (yet!), her texts were what I looked forward to. It is so nice to share similar experiences and be 100% honest with each other. You need someone to call you on your bullshit, I am a firm believer of that.
Marvelous is …. laundry. Well not the process but I finally caved and did laundry after a month. Man do I despise that stuff.
Marvelous is… Thrift shop. Don’t even get me started, that song comes on during my runs and man do I start running fast. What is it about certain songs that make my pace pick up? No idea but all I know is that when certain songs hit Kiss 108, I am on fire. I hate T Swift but Trouble makes me bang out a pace, Beauty and the Beat… On the other hand One Direction’s Little Things or whatever song MAKES ME WANT TO DIE. Have you heard it? Don’t, it makes me want to rip my ear phones out. Do not ever talk about a girl squeezing in her jeans, the dimples on her back, her thighs… just no.
Marvelous is… planning. This week is brought to you by planning. No other way to get through it. Save me?
I mean a jet pack to take me home would be ideal. Got to rock this week friends.
Question: What is marvelous about your Monday? How do you plan for your crazy weeks?
