Few Things Friday

Catch Up

I have been in catch up mode for 2 weeks now and I'm still so far behind.  I'm pretty sure it's because I'm the laziest pile of shit ever so busy, but I just can't seem to find a complete 8 hours of motivation.  I have about an hours worth, tops.  Then I slack off for 3 hours, and then maybe one more hours worth before I realize it's almost time to go home.  I sometimes get REALLY motivated in the last 15 minutes of the day, but then don't finish anything because it's the end of the day!  I'm also so tired because my mind races at night about all the stuff I need to get done at work, so I don't sleep very well!

Next Race
I've finally decided that my next half marathon is going to be the Albuquerque Half on April 21st.  This gives me 3 months to run some small local races and to really intensify my training plan.  By intensify, I mean add mileage, get in my long runs, and try to increase my speed.  I've been too scared to pump up the treadmill or run a little faster AND we all know that my long runs have been a bit lackadaisical or really just lacking!  So, I'm going to work on my new training plan this weekend and find some local races to fit in and sign up for the halfer next week!  San Diego halfer will be 6 weeks after that, and so far that's the proper amount of time I need to recover and retrain.

Super Bowl Predictions
This weekend are the last two playoff games to determine the Superbowl teams.  I am going for the 49ers and Ravens to win.  I'm sick of the Patriots, not because they beat the Broncos, but because I'm sick of them!  And I'm convinced that the 49ers can beat the Giants...if the defense can capitalize on Eli Manning's dumb throws mistakes and the offense can give Alex Smith enough time to find an open Vernon Davis player, then I think they can pull off a Dubya!  So that's my prediction!  Just a side note: a lot of my Broncos guys have made the Pro Bowl game (which means they weren't originally voted in, but because of injuries, they've been chosen to replace the guys who were voted in)!  I bet Dawkins and McGahee will be a lot nicer than Bailey too!

I hope everyone has a great Friday!

  1. I know exactly what you mean about being behind...I have been running around like a crazy lady trying to get everything done. At the end of the day, all I want to do is crash...

    Hope you get to a happy place with your work :)

    And congrats on picking out your next half!
