Running related news, after all of this nonsense.
I knew it was going to be a great day when I woke up to my brother in law responding to my 131 point [cough…PR… cough…] word in Words With Friends.
you’ll note that the time stamp in the picture on the left is in regular people time. the one on the right has military time. I don’t know why my phone reverted back to regular people time, but rest assured I took care of the situation.
From there, I was productive enough to get work done; then decided it was time to do cool stuff with the kiddo.
The play dough was homemade, and it was super easy. Literally took about 15 minutes to make, and all you need is flour, salt, vegetable oil, and water. Food coloring if you really want to get crazy. Here’s a link for those interested.
She also refused to nap, something she is doing more and more these days. I am surprisingly ok with this, because she will actually have “quiet time” for about an hour, AND most importantly, she doesn’t melt down later in the day. This gave me time to make another batch of gluten free “Oreos”… they’re delicious.
So all in all, not a bad day.
My running related news :: Brace yourselves, another whine fest. A few days ago I noticed that my right arch felt bruised. I had just gone on a run the day before, so I thought that I had stepped on something and not noticed… well the pain was even worse the next day, so I kept off of my feet as much as I could. I also came to realize that this sensation occurs when I’m wearing shoes. Grrrrrrrrrrreat… When I was pregnant with Kara, my feet changed from a normal to flat arch, and my size also went up a full increment, but have since gone back to normal. I don’t know if they are “shifting” again, but I’m going to try running tomorrow to see how it goes. I haven’t had pain since, so I am fairly optimistic. I’m REALLY hoping this was a giant fluke and that everything is fine. Honestly, I am overall disheartened with how running is going for me, and at this point I don’t know if I will even care if it turns out that I can’t run anymore. Pretty crappy outlook on it, I know. But for now, just the thought of running feels like a chore – not to mention that nine times out of ten it doesn’t go well for me. So we’ll see. *sigh*
Do you prefer military time or normal people time?
When is the last time you played with play dough?
Is there a pack of Oreos in your house right now??
