Hello and Happy Friday, y’all!
I’m in a wonderful mood. Not sure how the hell that happened, but it did. Actually, this week has not been so bad. It was nowhere near as shitty as last week thanks to me getting – on average – 9 hours of sleep a night. Holla!
So, what’s going on in GeekGirlandia? (Don’t judge me!):
I’ve been running. And…I don’t hate it. Tuesday’s 3 miler was pretty shitty and left me sore, but Thursday’s was easy peasy except for the fact that I really had to pee. I looked for a building to duck behind but couldn’t find one. It made me a bit uncomfortable. Tonight, I’ll kill 3 or then we’re looking to get another 3 on Saturday and 5-6 on Sunday. Woot!
I’m 8 weeks out from the start of Chicago training. I know I should have more miles, but what can I do? It’s taken me this long to kind of feel normal. If I find I’m having issues adding miles over my 8 week base building period (I’ll detail that a bit more in a later post) then I’ll re-evaluate my marathon training. Maybe go with a Hal Higdon plan or something instead of MacMillian.
If any of you follow me on Twitter, you know I have some serious sleep issues. Last week, everything accumulated and I had what can only be described as a complete and total break down. I called my mom crying after not sleeping for weeks. The most I’d get continuously was 2 hours. Tops. It took it’s toll on me and I was a wreck.
My mom managed to talk me down and forced me to see my shrink. We worked through some things. Lo and behold, I’m sleeping 9 hours a night without sleeping pills. What did I do? Stopped drinking wine. It was NOT helping my sleep situation. Cut way back on caffeine. (I only have 1 cup in the morning anyway.) Force myself into bed at a decent hour. Take my medicines as they’re prescribed. Like magic, by Friday night I was able to sleep.
It’s still not perfect. The other night I only slept 5 hours or so, but that’s better than 2.
You MUST check out this Buffy the Vampire Slayer post on Pajiba. It is the shit and reenforces why I am, and always will be, Joss Whedon’s bitch.
I think this song should be Obama’s 2012 theme song:
In case you don’t feel like listening, it’s Big K.R.I.T. “I Got This”. The chorus is “Fuck these haters, Fuck these ho’s.”
It’s my new theme song.
GeekGirl puts on sunglasses and dances across the room…I Got This!
