All of a sudden I am feeling a little bit stressed out.
The Marathon training is hard. I mean I guess I always knew it would be hard. I’ve planned to run a Marathon for many years now, but never was able to do it due to injuries. Now I have run 6 months without any major injuries and I am in the beginning (week 8 or so of 18 weeks) of the training plan and I find I am tired. While I am not running fast, it is strange to note that if I was training for a Half Marathon, I would have already run the race. I don’t mind running the longer runs that much, but the recovery from them is something I am still learning about. I apparently need more than one day of rest after running a long. This is a little bit stressful for me, but I think I am going to learn from this weekly and try to just ensure I do at least one short run, one medium run and a long run a week. I’m training consistently, but sometimes my results are stinky.
My cell phone was misplaced for one week, and I finally found it yesterday. I was perplexed to see amidst other calls a call from my Apartment complex Office. No message left, just that they called. Being the way I am I am assuming it is because someone complained about Teulu the wonder dog barking. He has been a bit of s difficult dog over the past few weeks, and has actually been barking and wuffling a lot. But now that he is no longer ill and needing to go out every 30 minutes, he is content and much much quieter. I also decided to force myself to give him 3 walks a day rather than 2 and potty breaks. Soooooo…..
Today I decide I need a new telephone. I LOVE my new phone. It goes on the internet, and has a full keyboard for me to text people, a camera, and a variety of other entertaining features. But I changed my number with the new phone. Why? My old area code of 252 was conflicting with my new 352 area code. people were calling the wrong number constantly.
So now…. The Apartment people can not get in contact with me to let me know the dog is a pain. I do not want to call because I keep hoping that they were just calling for some other reason… you know? SO of course,I feel stressed and worried about this all.
I suppose all will come out in the wash…..
Otherwise all is well. I skipped my run today and did a little ellipticalling.
Soooo thats where I’m at.
