Sometimes, just for funsies, I put on running clothes and pretend to be a runner. This morning, I met my trusty running partner, Lara, at the desert trail. I've been pretty sedentary as of late which I attribute to my Netflix Addiction (and my love of sitting) but I decided it was time to get my ass moving again.
I should mention here that my Netflix addiction has not improved, I just managed to fit in some running. I finished the second season of American Horror Story and let's just say, my dreams are getting weirder. Combine that with my love of Hannibal, and you end up with dreams that involve someone suturing extra body parts to your own. No joke.
Back to running. Surprisingly, I didn't struggle as much as I anticipated. We ran 3 miles out and then back for a total of 6 fairly low key miles.
|Lara stopped for yoga.|
|I stopped for a clover.|
We were almost back to our cars when we realized that we couldn't find Lara's dog, Juno. So we got to add an extra credit mile to our total for 7 since we had to search for her. I'm fairly certain that she found shade and refused to keep going.
|Yep. She's done.|
Don't let this act fool you, however. This dog loves to run. I'd guess she runs at least 2 for every 1 mile we run.
|If you look closely, there's a horse on that ramp...|
This afternoon, I took Louis The Perfect Pony for a stroll around the neighborhood by my barn for an extra mile. That gives me a total of 8. I didn't get a picture because I didn't feel like carrying my phone, but trust me when I say he looks adorbs in his work out gear. I jest, I jest. We left his work out gear at home.
I also continued my search for a gym. I found one really close to my house which is not just a bonus, but a necessity if I'm going to actually use it. If I have to drive too far out of the way, I just won't go. I haven't been by to visit, yet, but hopefully I will get a chance to do that on Tuesday or Wednesday.
I'm really hoping they have wifi, but my main concern is this color scheme. I seriously don't know if I can spend time in here without having a seizure. That is really...electrically green.
|Omg, my eyes. They burn.|
Shouldn't gyms be soothing with neutral color schemes? But it's close enough that if I felt extra motivated, I could jog there. I'll scope it out and if my brain doesn't ignite from staring at those walls, maybe I will give it a shot.
On a side note, a friend of mine wants to set me up with a friend of hers. Even her husband who constantly tells her to stop playing matchmaker thinks it would be a good match. Dating is very nerve wracking for this girl, which may come as a shock because I'm a pretty outgoing person, but it causes me a significant amount of anxiety. He sounds pretty nice, so I think I might just give it a try... At some point. When I work up my nerve. Apparently he's shy.
If anyone has had a successful set up before, I need to hear about it before I talk myself out of it. I gotta go, I have to find another TV series to binge on.
