I woke up at 5 a.m. this morning which is funny since I didn't fall asleep until 1 a.m. I tried to go back to sleep but my stomach kept growling. So for the first time in a while, I got out of bed and made myself some breakfast. Eggs, turkey bacon and a buttermilk biscuit. It was only after I finished eating that I thought, "Overkill" who eats like that before 6:00 a.m.?!?
Then the handle to my oven fell off...completely. *Calling like a yodeler sans yodel...so probably just cupping hand to mouth* "Oh Dad!" Can I just throw in here that I am so excited for this week to be over...I probably say that every week, it's because I don't like the weeks, I like the weekends. The weekends are when life happens.
I am still training for that 8k and yesterday I ran three miles. Can I just say that it feels great to run that far? It feels even greater that my back and ankle didn't give out and that I didn't run out of breath...I didn't run out of breath. Thank you Leslie Sansone
for teaching me to breath normally until it gets to difficult and then take a deep breath. I am here to testify that it works! Amen Leslie! Oh, and lengthening the body is very good too. It's funny how it's been so long since I've done one of those videos but I remember the tips as I run around the neighborhood.
It rained Tuesday night and so as I was breathing correctly (through my nose not my mouth - thank you track team) I was able to smell so much. Like the smell of wet, dead leaves that makes me think of cool, fall afternoons and trick-or-treating on Halloween night. I took many deep breaths while running down one road that had the potent smell of fall.
While I was running on the way home I smelled something curious, two things came to mind but they were not similar and it threw me off. I didn't want to smell it again and yet I did, so I sniffed the air and debated...chemical and candy? What could possible trigger memories of both? That was when I was struck with an epiphany...
Nail polish smells like banana Now and Laters.
I hope you hadn't been expecting anything deep. Have a good day!
