Just some random things

My weight has been jumping up and down from 130.2 to 131 all week. It is kind of annoying! I’m almost ready to quit weighing daily again, but I don’t know. We’ll see. I’m doing everything ‘right’, so it can be frustrating. I know weight fluctuates all of the time, I just don’t remember it being this much on a daily basis. Trying to keep my cool over here. I really want to be back to my pre-Vegas weight!!

I’m running a 10k tomorrow!! I’ve been careful all week to not overdo it in any of my workouts, except I worked pretty hard on my tempo run on Tuesday. I’m feeling pretty good about it and I’m going to try to at least get under an hour. Possibly run at a 9:00 pace? I don’t know. I’m just going to try for under an hour 🙂

In preparation for the race I haven’t had any alcohol since last week. I just decided I would skip it (even though I probably would only have had a couple of beers before my rest day). I’m looking forward to a hard run and then kicking back later with those couple of beers!

I need to get back to doing Dulingo every day. My daughter has been doing it every single day this year, trying to learn some French. I don’t think I’ve done it since we left for Vegas 🙁 It is something I want to do, so I just need to start doing it again.

I’m going to start getting up earlier than I do even now. Ugh. I just know it will be easier to get my runs done in the mornings come summer, so I’m transitioning now. I had my alarm set for 4:40, so this week I switched it to 4:35. Baby steps. I don’t think I want to get up any earlier than 4:15, so I’ll work towards that and see how it goes. I’m already in bed by 9:00 pm and I don’t really want to be going to bed at 8:00 😆 This is making me feel old. Sigh.

I’ve been knitting quite a bit lately! I finished a scarf before we left for Vegas, and then another last week. I still have blocking to do but maybe I’ll get to that this weekend and then show them off. I’m trying to figure out what to do next. I might surprise M with a sweater she can wear in the fall, but that can be tricky since she is always growing out of her clothes! We’ll see.
