As you all know, my motivation has been lower than the temperature in Antarctica. Between the car and the stitches and unpacking from our Colorado trip and a million other things, I am completely spent. But I put on a new pair of Nike Tempo running shorts. Seriously, I could live in these shorts, and I have a thing about NOT wearing shorts (I am just not a fan of my upper-legs - perhaps I should work on that). Side note: Unless you're a runway model, I highly suggest getting a size up in these shorts if you want to try them out... I try to have respect for the few people that are actually behind me when I run. ;-)
I picked out my treadmill entertainment. Who doesn't love Netflix? Come on, you know you do. We don't have cable, so we adore Netflix. But this movie was a bad choice... "My One and Only". It's based on George Hamilton's childhood, and let me tell you, it didn't distract me from running AT ALL. I might as well have been watching paint dry. I didn't finish it yet, that will require another torturous run, but I'm pretty confident that it's not going to get any better.
At mile 2, I was interrupted by a scratching on my leg... Hmmmm... what's that... oh? You're supposed to take the tag off the shorts before you wear them???
At mile 3.5, I was reminded why I really dislike running at home when I was interrupted by "I need to go powwy." I finished off the 4 miles afterwards and called it a day. I hope to get in a lot more tomorrow.
I do have to keep my running legs on, because this Sunday, I have The Hottest Half on my schedule. You know you are all jealous of my running in 90-100 degree sweltering heat in Texas in mid-August (which is the hottest month here). I am considering doing a run-walk method to get through this. I usually try to run the whole time (except for when I get water, since I've learned that getting the water into your mouth instead of on your shirt is more important than a few seconds time). It should be fun!
