Good morning and Happy Monday! I am currently writing this while watching season 2 of Lost. Needless to say, I’m on the bandwagon. After a long weekend at work, I’m ready deload my brain and link up with Meg for Week In Review.
I finished the first season of Lost
My first impression of this show was positive. I like adventure, survival and mystical themes in shows. I loved 24 and the 100, so I had high hopes for this show even if people say the ending is weird. Well, it locked me in. I will keep watching. I enjoy the stories behind the characters. Coming from a Disney Channel show background growing up, I enjoy when characters are neither totally good, nor totally bad. I like complex sub-plots (which is kind of lacking right now but I have faith) and random friendships you wouldn’t expect. My favorite character is probably Sawyer. Something about him just gives me all the feels. Let me know if you watch, we can discuss!
Solving my shoe dilemmas
I bought another pair of Saucony Kinvara 6s online a few weeks ago. These are the same shoes I wore for my marathon. However, the second time I wore them, it downpoured and they got soaked. I dried them out, but now they fit weird and rub me the wrong way. I wear them once in a while, and did this morning, but still, they feel weird now. I am still loving my Saucony fastwitch for speed workouts and my Skoras. After I got the glass out of that shoe, they have worked really well. I like the feeling of minimal shoes and the strength I am getting from them, but I want to get a pair of Skora Tempos for long runs and see how they do. I did a 15 miler in my Skora Phases and was fine. Hopefully this means my feet and calves are able to handle them more full time. We’ll see.
My First (real) 5k is this Friday
Oh man, am I really racing a 5K? With competitors not in Ithaca? AT NIGHT?!?!
Why yes, yes I am. And I am scared sh*tless. I will have to enter the pain cave for a really long time and I don’t know if I’ve ever done it like this before. This will be a great learning experience no matter what…but still OUCH!
I’m going to try to remember to do this every Monday, so bear with me. I listen to billions of podcasts, many I’ve talked about on Eat Run Pavement. Each week I want to give you one to listen to.
Podcast Recommendation Of The Week:
Blissful Bites with Brittany From Eating Bird Food
I’ve been enjoying listening to all the past episodes and learning from Nicole through her interviews. Who doesn’t love hearing from female entrepreneurs who are making it in the food world? Inspiring, creative and fun. Give it a listen!
What was the highlight of your week?
Have you ever had Blissful Eats granola?
