Back to work = less time for running. *sob* I have gotten out on the trail a couple of times this week, but I just haven’t been getting to bed soon enough to get up at my normal time in the morning for a full 1 hour run. :( It’s taking me a bit of time to get away from vacation brain, I’m afraid! I plan to get back to my usual wake up time this weekend, then hopefully will be able to get to bed earlier next week so I can get back to my daily hour long runs. We shall see, anyway!
I haven’t started up with training plans yet, so I’m still ok. But August will be here before I know it & then I’ll have to begin training in earnest for my bevy of half marathons! The first one is on Halloween, so it will be here before I know it.
Headaches & Missing Batteries
This morning I slept in a bit because 1) I stayed up too late and 2) at precisely 2:46am this morning, I apparently had some strange dream… I found myself in that half asleep/half awake state as I rapidly turned my head aside to avoid… something? And promptly clocked my forehead very hard into the edge of the window frame. See, I love to fall asleep while stargazing, so I keep my pillows actually in the window frame, right up against the window itself. So it’s not like I had gotten up & walked to a window or anything. Nope, I just whipped my head to the right really fast. Right into the edge of the window. I still haven’t got a clue what I was dreaming, but I’ve got a lovely goose egg in the middle of my forehead to show for it. Not to mention, a bit of a headache forming as well. LOL
My project 365 has taken a bit of a vacation as well. First, the camera got tucked away somewhere & it took me a while to find it. Then when I found it, someone had taken out the rechargeable batteries & used them in something else. A something else that I just can’t seem to find!! So I’m missing the batteries for the digital camera & can’t take snaps every day. :( I’ve got to remember to pickup batteries during my next dreaded shopping trip (yes, I really HATE shopping). :)
Still working hard on the manlet’s punky scarf! It’s going to end up being pretty long, which is a good thing, given that he’s a good height. I really wanted to take a picture & post it, but… *sigh* I’ve also got to rip back my new sock pattern, as it is just not working for me. :( The idea I had will work much, much better for a solid color rather than this gorgeous & totally perfect colorway I’m designing the pattern for. I think I’m going to mess around with stitch ideas & try to come up with a stitch that is more interesting & better suited to it.
