I had another run in with insomnia Friday night, so I didn’t get up at my normal before the sun rises time… so today’s run was miserably hot since I didn’t get out on the road until almost 10am. I had decided to give GU another try before this run, which once again proved to be a huge mistake. By the time I hit the 2 mile marker, I knew there was just no way I was going to make it for a full 5 mile run, so I turned back around & kept it to a 4 mile run instead. My pace suffered a little bit, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it wasn’t TOO terrible in the end. Yay! :)
Note to Self: Bananas are Good
I had decided to give the GU a try because I found I had run out of bananas. Bananas are my usual go to pre-run fuel. As the Doctors (Nine AND Ten) loved to say, “Bananas are good!” Naturally, during my entire run, it was all I could think about. LOL Fortunately, I had added some more songs by The Real McKenzies to my running playlist. Punk, bagpipes, visions of kilts and laughing over the Doctor & his love of bananas helped me to push through the rest of the run.
I couldn’t find a decent clip of Nine talking about bananas, but I did find a clip of Ten! ;)
I also found a few clips of The Real McKenzies, so here is one to give you an idea… they are usually labeled as “celtic punk”.
I knit up another Smidge headband from the leftover Cherry Blossom colorway while I was watching movies last night. When I finished that, I pulled out the new design & frogged what I’d gotten done to that point. I came up with another idea to try, so I wrote down the game plan & cast on to see if my idea is going to work. It’s too early to tell just yet if my idea is going to work or not. I really hope it does because it’s something a little different & I really like it. I just don’t know if it is going to work with this colorway…
