Baby steps. 2 miles/25:35

Thursday, August 27, 2009
(UPDATE: obviously I am training alone this cycle, but this weekend was a wash so I restarted the schedule at Day 1)

It feels so weird to be doing these 2 mile runs after I spent so many weeks increasing my distances pretty briskly when I was training for the Half... Not to say it's super easy, but it doesn't feel like I am accomplishing as much, I guess (part of this has to be how close I am to logging 100 total miles and how looooong it seems to be taking to get there compared to my last cycle). Thankfully, I can see the physical results almost immediately, I definitely feel the lift in my spirits/energy and my goal for this round of training was to get my pace up so I could set a PR (personal record) for my third go-round at the Jingle Run in December so I'm certainly on track for that.

Wilson is doing better! It appears that he isn't passing blood anymore, though he's still not moving the amounts of urine I had hoped at least there's currently no blockage. We're not out of the woods, but with temporary meds and permanent dietary changes (blargh) I have faith we'll get through it.

Tonight is going to be...interesting. I'm going to my first Yelp event in months and really don't want to have to discuss my newly single status; I really don't have much to say about it other than it didn't work out and I'll be okay and I know he will be too. Unfortunately, to a few select Yelp bitches this will probably mean that I am considered a threat to the men of Yelp again (soooo not true - I am not even on the market). Thankfully at least one of my bffs will be there and if it comes down to it I can spend my time catching up with her while indulging in a few free drinks and be perfectly happy with my evening. I'll be sporting my favorite Dave Sheely Designs ring, some sexy ass shoes and will be doing my best to stay cool-ish for a few hours in a warehouse in Georgetown - considering the past week, it could be a hell of a lot worse.

Hey lovely, sorry to hear the news (noticed someone had been conspicuously absent from FB comments) but I think you're the most resilient girl I've ever met so I know you'll be all right :)

I haven't been to a Yelp event in forever...sounds like the Georgetown one was one for the ages! Nice job on the running, too. It motivates me to get my ass to the gym!

Yeahhhh, unlike my previous exes he is not intent on driving me nuts by being constantly in my face with assholery after our break-up. ;)

The Georgetown event was pretty ridiculous! Amazing, but a bit overwhelming at the same time.

Girl, I don't know how you can handle the gym - there are typically just too many people there for me to be able to focus on what I am doing. Thank goodness for the running, otherwise I might be even crazier by now.
