I’m going to start with a song because I’ve been listening to it all day. You’ll probably hate it, but if you feel like listening to a Kenny Chesney live cover of John Mellencamp’s Hurts So Good then this will make your day!
By the way, both Kenny Chesney and John Mellencamp are amazing in concert.
I woke up at 5 am today to make it to work by 6. You’d think I’d be tired after working this early all week, but no. I injected coffee straight into my system at exactly 6:01 and the rest is history.
I watched videos of roller coasters, white water rafting, and talked about skydiving. I Facebooked (yes, that’s a verb in my world), blogged and chatted my face off. This may give the impression that I don’t work at work, but I assure you I do. It’s just that on occasion people don’t have a lot of news to tell the world at 6 am.
Anyway, I was in a fit of giggles all day so I had to control myself. Then I was waiting on the train from Waterloo and just as it was about to leave a guy comes running full speed toward the doors shouting “IS THIS TRAIN GOING TO WIMBLEDON???” The doors slammed shut in his face and all was silent until a guy goes, “Not for you!”
I felt so bad for him because all Londoners have been there, but I lost it. Everyone around us started laughing, and seeing as how I was repressing my hyperness all day I was laughing out loud. Fifteen minutes later I got off the train and like a crazy person was laughing to myself on the walk home.
That’s when I decided I was never going to sleep tonight if I still had this much energy so I laced up my running shoes and ran 2.5 miles. It hurt. I haven’t been running since October 16, when I ran a 5K in Clapham. That hurt, too, because before that I hadn’t put on my running shoes since September 17 when I ran a 10K in the Air Force Marathon. Ow!
I’ve decided I definitely want to start training for a half marathon. It’s actually happening. I was looking into training plans this week and now all I need is to find a suitable race!
(tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!!!)
