Week two of shows for Dogfight is going well. We picked back up on Wednesday, and had probably our best show so far that night. My folks came last night, which was really nice, and I have some friends coming tonight as well. We’re finally settling in and figuring ourselves out, which I’m intensely grateful for. And after a few days of rest earlier this week, I’m personally feeling a lot better, stronger, and happier to be there.
I went to my first CrossFit class in almost two weeks on Tuesday. It felt SO GOOD to be back. Of course, I was still exhausted from my epic Sunday of 10k run + hiking, but I persevered. I missed my friends, I missed the feeling of accomplishment… I gotta really try not to miss full weeks from here on out!
And just like that, Ben is gone again. This time he’s off to DC to visit his older sister Leah. He left on Wednesday, and will be back for like, two whole days before he takes off again to go to Prague. I’m really glad he was home for four days, and I feel like we crammed a lot of quality time together into his short home stand.
Against all odds, I’ve actually kind of been sticking to my half marathon training plan. Definitely not religiously, and not hitting CF as much as I’d like, but I’ve done long runs the last two weekends in a row, including the longest run I’ve done since Wine and Dine back in November. I’m cautiously optimistic that I can at least be somewhat prepared to run a half in early to mid-September, which would be fantastic. Still though, there’s a lot of stuff to get through first. Fingers crossed that I can continue what I’ve been doing.
The latest in humorous search terms leading to this blog: “hot busty runner.” I literally laughed out loud at my desk when I read that one. Yes, I am busty, and yes, I get hot very frequently, so I guess I can see what brought them here, but still. Dying laughing over here.
Who else is ready for the weekend???
