Something Shiney................

Tonight I am having extreme ADD.  I am working on editing photos.  Laundry.  Cleaning.  I quit those things and started a blog post.  I got bored with the topic I was writing about and started writing another one.  Then Facebook grabbed me.  Then the phone.  And then... I can't seem to finish one project let alone one thought.  This is typical when I have too many thing going on at one time.  I start to lose my mind.

Instead of doing something productive, I will blog about my run.

I just felt like I had to pat myself on the back for my run today.  I was scheduled to run 5 miles but due to time constraints I ran almost 3 miles.  But I ran them fast (relatively speaking of course).  I even had a WHOLE mile where my pace was in the 9 (and then some) minute range.  It was hard because this is a way faster pace than I am used to and at 3PM the weather hot for running.  I know I pushed myself hard because I almost threw up after a the workout.  In my opinion, it was a sign of a job well done.

There were several times I wanted to quit but refused.  I was at Lake Nokomis and I had plenty of things to keep my mind off of running pain.  There is no shortage of entertainment at this lake!!  Here are just a few of the things that I encountered:
  • The Unibomber's twin brother
  • A dog taking a dump in the lake (EWWWWW that kind of kills the desire for an open water swim)
  • Girls biking in bikinis
  • Girls biking in bikinis with a body parts that should be covered hanging out
  • Girls biking in bikinis that should take an honest girlfriend shopping.  An honest girlfriend would not let them buy that swim suit!!!!!
  • More swimwear that people should not have been wearing
  • A couple getting it on (fully clothed at the point I saw them).....out in the wide open
I was happy that I was able to sneak in a run before picking up the kids.  Going to the lake today was nice because it was a change of scenery.  Even though it was a short run, It was a great workout. 

Speaking change of scenery....I had better get back to work and hope my focus returns.

I think "What Not to Wear" needs to have a prime time bathing suit edition!

My first thought is that I should run there if I'm ever in the 'hood.

I've had some ADD moments lately too. It gets so easy for something to take your focus away when everything is hitting at once. Good job on the run!

Lisa said...

did you almost throw up after the workout because you worked hard or because of the things you saw? lol

Just saw your blog linked on another one. I LOVE your blog title! Biking in bikinis is just ridiculous.

Um. Gross. *Note to self* NEVER swim in Lake Nokomis.

I totally get that way when I have too much to do as well...RANDOM.
