Last night, I had pizza as promised. It was everything I hoped for. SO GOOD.
Pulled pork, red jalapenos, cilantro, and lime zest. I thought that after not having any for 2 months, I wouldn’t be able to eat the whole thing. I was wrong. Definitely missed having my pup to feed the extra bits of crust to though.
I think all this research is making me stir crazy, I always look forward to runs but I seriously NEED them right now. I really cannot overstate the importance of clearing my mind for a bit every day and the sweaty factor just makes it even better, I tend to get all up in my own head when I’m this deep in my work but I’m actually incapable of thinking about it while I run, my brain only goes to fun and/or totally random things. It’s such a relief and really makes me feel better about life so I stay motivated.
Usually another thing that helps is taking a 5 minute break to play with the pups. You really cannot help but smile and be in a good mood when dogs are around. They were with Joe’s parents over the weekend and Joe’s mom sent me these for Mother’s Day and they totally made me smile:
So cute. I don’t know how she got such fidgety dogs to sit so nicely. Stevie looks a bit terrified of her sign though.
For the reasons stated above I’m actually looking forward to my interval workout today (note this date on your calendar, it’s unlikely to happen again for another year). Mile repeats are going to hurt so good.
What is your favorite form of stress relief?
I always wonder…what do you think about while running? My mind goes off on all kinds of crazy tangents but at least 40% of the time I’m daydreaming about something super random like winning front row tickets to see my favorite band and they invite me up on stage (true story from a run last week)
Moms…how was your Mother’s Day?
