This week has been fantastic over here.
- With no races this weekend I get to ramp up my training a bit. I had an amazing ride yesterday!
- I met up with a friend for taco Tuesday, pressed juicery freeze and some mall browsing. It was the perfect girl time and just what I needed.
- I am heading out for my second mountain bike ride today. Yes… with stitches in my arm from my mtb ride a week ago BUT I figure there is no way I can crash again so soon, right?
With the month coming to an end in like 2 days (what?!) it is time for a “currently” February post:
MAKING: Coffee and lots of it. It is very true- the more you drink the more you need and this jobless girl shouldn’t be spending all her money on Starbucks so making my own it is!
READING: Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. It has taken me a while to get into this book and honestly I still don’t love it yet but feel invested to finish it.
LOOKING FORWARD: To getting these stitches out of my arm! They make showering and planking extremely difficult.
PLAYING: Crosswords. Man these things are hard! My mom does them all the time so naturally I figured they would be no big deal (confidence is rarely my issue). Unfortunately I was wrong, these things are hard even for someone as brilliant as I (;
WATCHING: Parenthood… if you have not watched it, get on Netflix!
Is it weird that I love The Bravermans a lot?
DRINKING: Green smoothies like this one.
WANTING: To go see McFarland USA. I have heard some good things about it from some of my runner friends like Lauren. So it is on my list!
LEARNING: To embrace my challenges. We all have ‘em! And time and time again you hear stories about how things that seemed really bad when people were in them actually turn out to be a huge part of their story. I also believe that a lot of people unfortunately miss the “calling” of their struggles. I don’t want that to be the case with my challenges, I want to embrace them and then use them to better my life!
ENJOYING: Time with my families puppies. They are the best and both have such unique personalities. Being around them so much has confirmed that I am going to need my own asap.
LOVING: The bike! I have so been enjoying my training lately. There is something different about pure cycling training as opposed to anything I have ever done before. It is challenging me in new ways, hello sprints! and quickly growing on me.
NEEDING: Hmm what do I need? A job?
WEARING: Currently… pajamas. Haha, I am writing this on my “day-off” from training and have no need to change yet.
FEELING: Relaxed. Life is good!
MISSING: Having a schedule. I actually really love and thrive when I have lots of structure in my life. I enjoy repetition and function well when I know that I have specific things at specific times. With school it was always this way. In my last job I struggled because my schedule changed every week as much. I never thought I would want a “9-5″ sorta job but I crave that sort of consistency.
Have you watched Parenthood? Where can I get the last season online since it is not on Netflix yet?!
Have you seen McFarland USA? Do you want to?
Hope you are having a good week!
