Thursday Thirteen, III

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 9:04 am

Thirteen things on my mind today:

1) First of all, thank you to eveyone who came by my little blog yesterday, via Michele! Thank you so much Michele! I was so surprised and honored to be the site of the day. *blushing* I will be making a visit to each and every one of you, but it may take a little time.

2) No Mas Yasso-my-assos! Today was my last Yasso workout! Well, at least for this marathon. I so almost didn’t get out of bed this morning. I was sleeping so well and so comfy. But, I dragged myself from between the sheets. And then, on the way to the track, I was feeling so sleepy and lazy I told myself that I was just going to run 4 miles easy then go home. But of course, I didn’t. I ran a 1 mile warm-up, then did my 8-800’s. My target was 5:00 for each of them. My first was a 4:38. A little too fast. The rest were between 4:50 and 5:00, and my last one was a 4:48. I was well proud of myself! Now my legs feel like jello though. Just nine more days!

3) Isn’t it sad when I pay $2.76 for a gallon of gas and feel like I got a deal? I mean, what is up with that?

4) Last night I got up the nerve to write a ‘writers bio’ and send off some short fiction to a publication for consideration. I have no idea how long it will take for me to hear back, so cross fingers! I actually had to write about myself in the third person. Reminded me of that Seinfeld episode where Elaine dated the guy Jimmy that talked about himself in the third person. Creepy!

5) I had fried chicken, KFC fried chicken, last night for the first time in at least a year. It was so DAMN GOOD!

6) I forgot to do my Thursday Thirteen until I went to MommaK’s blog. Oops. So I’m re-doing my post from today since I kinda sorta already started a ‘list’.

7) I feel pretty today. Even thought I didn’t do my hair. No time after all that running. Just dried the front and put the rest up in a clip.

8) I had an apple cinnamon scone for breakfast. It wasn’t as good as the cranberry scones they have, but they were out of those.

9) I go tonight to re-do my BodPod measurements to see how much (if any) body fat percentage I’ve lost since August. We’ll see how that goes. I’m not going to be too disappointed if it’s not as much as I wanted, because a) I didn’t do the weight training I wanted to do, and b) well, I’m not going to get down on myself over that.

10) Tonight is also the night for ER. I love me some Dr. Kovac!

11) Hey! Today is October 13! And it’s a Thursday Thirteen!

12) I’m hungry for lunch already. I’m thinking about that fried chicken I had last night and how good it was. {chicken} *sigh* I’ll have to see what’s on the menu for the cafeteria today.

13) Just when my nails were looking good, I had to go and break one while I was opening the sliding door to the backyard. Never fails.
