Well, I had a few ideas for a post yesterday but ended up getting blindsided with some allergies and just did not have the mental energy to put something together.
Seriously, allergies are absolutely the worst! I am lucky that I didn’t get Cedar Fever too bad when I was down in Austin, but I’ve been hit a few times with it up here and it’s definitely not my favorite. It seems to be going away now (with the help of Claritin), so at least it’s short-lived.
Anyways! On to Thursday Thoughts with Running with Spoons…
I am so excited that football season is right around the corner!
Only a month-ish until the season starts, which means it’s time to start thinking about fantasy football and all that fun stuff! I’m not a huge fan of preseason (meh), but I am excited that football is almost here. I am NOT excited about this study —> that shows the damage that football does to the brain. 🙁 As much as I love the sport, I have a feeling that unless they can figure out a way to protect the players, it may become a thing of the past.
I’m breaking up with ice cream
I had ice cream at work earlier this week and I ended up feeling sick for the next eight hours. I generally stay away from dairy (minus cheese because for whatever reason, it doesn’t seem to affect me like the other stuff does) because it doesn’t make me feel that great, but man, I’ve never felt that bad after ice cream before. I think as I get older, I realize that the whole taste of the food does not outweigh how it makes you feel afterwards and it makes it so much easier to cut it out.
I’m feeling better about ultramarathon training
After feeling like a failure earlier this week, I didn’t know what I was going to do with the rest of ultramarathon training. THANK YOU all for your kind words, comments and advice. It helped me feel so much better about it all. All it comes down to is that I can only do what I can do, and to enjoy the experience.
I barely remember how clueless I felt the first time I was marathon training, but man, I really was! I totally didn’t get the differences between paces; just thought that you should run them all as fast and hard as you can because, what’s the point otherwise?
So, that being said, I’m taking it one day at a time with a goal to get to the Golden Ultra start line healthy and happy to be running such an amazing adventure!
