Crickets…crickets…anyone? Yep, it’s been a bit quiet over here. You would think that returning from a blog retreat I would be inspired to pound out the posts. Well, besides feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the goodies we brought home, I’ve sort of felt out of place in the blogosphere. I’m not sure where my writing plants me since I don’t provide any race recaps or training reports and am in no shape or form able to dish out nutrition (although I try). So, maybe it’s time to link up with Running with Spoon’s Thinking Out Loud 🙂
~ The lag in creativity may actually due to the fact it took over 12 hours to travel home on Sunday and I’m just recovering from it all. Sure I could have taken my computer on the plane but I wanted a weekend away from social media. So there.
~ Deciding not to attend Monday’s 7am spin class was probably a great decision. This would have meant running on 5.5 hours of sleep (cranky Kaitlin), walking a mile in the rain, and fighting the humidity. Yeah no.
~ Despite the thought above, I am attempting to motivate myself to workout in the mornings. Slowly but surely the 6:20am alarm is becoming possible. I’ve only hit the snooze button two of the four days so far. That’s a 50% success rate so, solid.
~ When does a heel spur go away? That would of course mean that I stop/reduce all sorts of activity…
~ Why does my phone lose it’s battery so quickly these days? I swear I don’t use it that much during the day and all of a sudden it’s at 20%
~ I still have those wonderful realizations that I live in THE New York City. It usually happens when I’m walking through the streets (ok on the daily) and look up and listen to the conversations and characters around me. No where else folks is there so much to explore and take in.
~ Has it really been a whole year since college graduation? Wow.
~ It’s been ages since I
wasted spent all my time on Pinterest. I think it’s time to find some crafty ideas or recipes to experiment with.
~ What type of posts identify with my blog? Since I don’t post much about nutrition or workouts, I don’t really fall into the “healthy living category”.
~ Should I be studying for the GRE even though I don’t know if/when I will take it?
~ I need to diversify my weekday routine. I feel like all I ever do is wake up, go to work, eat at work, work some more, work out (sometimes in the morning), go home, watch TV/blog, and go to bed. Yes I like working out and I spice it up with my weekly softball league but maybe I need to find some more exploration buddies. If you’re in the city, shoot me a note!
Any random thoughts on this fine Thursday?
