right after writing last night’s post, i got to talk to one of my besties through video skype (which is, btdubs, the best thing ever) about running. because she doesn’t run, and she wants to start. and there i was touting the huge importance of easy runs when i realized it was a do as i say not as i do thing. because. the last time i did an “easy run” was probs when i was in high school. i think if i allow myself some more slow relaxed runs, i might feel less pressure (pushing down on me…).
today was crazy hectic. overslept a bit (mostly cause i was up so late last night…11:30pm! oh my!). so, took some pumpkin oats to go (oats + soy milk + pumpkin + flax meal + cinnamon & nutmeg + barney butter)
i had to eat on it in the attorney side room as i ran back and forth between courtrooms this morning. but, in my rush out the door, i forgot i grabbed a trash bag to stick in the dumpster on the way out of my cul de sac. so, i got to the courthouse and turn around for my attache and see this peering at me from the back seat:
well, poo. it was of course going to 80 degrees today, so by the time the morning session was over and done, my newly cleaned car would smell like garbaaaage. yummy.
the hecticity (so not a word, i know.) did not stop there. i had 3 bench trials on the calendar and the docket in general was slammed. i didn’t get done with my last matter (a running a red light TRIAL. yes. trial. for running a red light.) until 1:15pm…which was oh so great because i have to be back in court for jail clearing at 1:30 (i love 15 minute breaks in a day for lunch). and in all honesty, normally this would be fine because i typically pack my lunch. not so today. but, fortunately, some of my coworkers let me go run out and get lunch while they got the jail clearing ball rolling.
i ran up to fresh market for some foodage.
yes i bought ALL of that for me. well, i ordered one of the sandwiches made for me, but then she put mustard on it, and i was in too much of a hurry to complain (though, i wouldn’t eat it given my ridonk phobia of condaments) so I grabbed ANOTHER sandwhich (tomato, basil and buffalo mozz). and i can’t go to fresh market and not get snickerdoodles (oh, i may have eaten 4 of the ginormous cookies already).
the best part was an apple almost the size of my head. seriously:
ok, maybe not the size of my head, but it was gargantuan. for serious. it weighed in at over a lb. and, it was delish. lastly, i ended the day with a bit of a treat:
as a rule, i’ve stopped drinking soda. but i just looooove me some cream soda. and sometimes, when i’ve had a long day i just want one. it’s better than a beer.
i haven’t run yet today, and i may be daring (slash stupid) and go for a bit of a jaunt at 8:30/9pm. (if you are my mommy and you are reading this, pretend you didn’t just read that.) i had to eat dinner (after my mandatory hour long nap), so now my belly is all happily full with leftovers from last night and not in a place to want to go run 7 miles. hopefully in an hour it will feel otherwise.
lastly, my boyfriend would like to share with you a couple shots from our photo booth fun this afternoon in honor of ADOPT A SHELTER DOG MONTH. (because, if you would like a gorgeous cuddly bff all your own, go to a shelter and save one.):
