14 miles/2:13 …a.k.a. farther than I have ever run before! Woo!
I think I have found the secret to finishing a super long run: zoning out. Okay, not completely zoning out because that’s just dangerous and stupid. When my mind is clear, I tend to focus way too much on how tired and am. Today, I practiced the art of getting lost in my thoughts. It really helps. I already knew this helped pass the time, but today I actively tried to stop thinking about how I felt or my pace.
Every time I found myself back to thinking about being tired, I tried to plan what I was doing today. Thanks to my distracted and all-over-the-place mind, that day planning method led me to thinking about other things, which led me to forgetting about how I had been running for 2 hours…
Good stuff, I tell you.
Goal Love in German. It’s true though.
Truth Let cool. Never.
Non-Chocolate Dessert Low-Fat Lemon Yogurt Cake. I’m usually all about the chocolate desserts, but lemony goodness is always a nice change of pace. This recipe sounds quite delicioso and “healthy” with the yogurt.
Motivation The decision to try. Never be afraid to try.
Reality Show Giuliana and Bill. I’m a girl—I like my trashy reality television. I don’t really consider this trashy though. Giuliana’s a classy lady, is extremely entertaining, and is an inspiration when it comes to her battle with breast cancer. I love their show, and they seem to be an amazing couple. I mean…it’s not as bad as the Kardashians! (which I may or may not watch as well………..)
Holiday Decoration Melted Snowman Ornament. It’s salt, peppercorns and an orange paper cone. I love this because when I’m in California in the winter, there are always snowman and snow decorations everywhere, yet it’s in the 60s and 70s outside. I find it funny because a lot of those people have probably never even seen snow. This ornament is quite appropriate.
Unique Dessert Strawberries in roasted marshmallow fluff. I thought this was clever. Dip a strawberry in marshmallow fluff and roast over the campfire! Sounds deeeeeelish. If it had some chocolate drizzled on it, I’d be in heaven.
Song Madness by Muse. I love when this comes on the radio because Muse is so different than the usual music. ‘Tis a nice change of pace.
Do you have a guilty pleasure show?
What song have you been loving this week?
