That awkward moment when the kids are being monsters and the mom doesn’t stop it and you don’t want to work for these people but you may have to
A half-decade flirtation with running has grown into a commited relationship. I started following a ketogenic diet Nov 21st 2013 with the hope that it will help me with my Shamrock 15k Run in March, and then with whatever feat I set for myself after that. I have a deep love for various TV shows and movies that I quote relentlessly with no apologies. At the end of the day, I am more positive than negative and I will curl up with a good book when the world refuses to cooperate with me.About Progress Me Training Ask Submit
I have two job interviews this afternoon. I don’t know when the first will end, but I should have about 30 minutes to go 15 miles in extreme Portland rush hour traffic… Here’s hoping that second interviewer has a kindness streak.
- I have had an amazing last four days. I don’t know why, and I don’t know how to keep it rolling, but everything about these days have just felt right (((it’s probably the sunshine))).
- I am going to miss working for this family so much.
- I just spent two hours on the phone with prospective new bosses and I feel a little cheap (because I was selling myself).
- I am really excited to get back in school and start working towards a life without nanny jobs and living in my parents house.
- I woke up so relieved to be done with my half marathon; I am so ready to start training for Hood to Coast.
- The morning of the half marathon, I was flipping shit. I hadn’t had a training run over 3 miles lately in which I hadn’t needed to stop to walk. My last long run was the 15k a month ago. Transitioning back into keto and trying to run long miles was a BITCH. But this nice lady turned to talk to me about a mile into the race and I ended up running the whole thing with her. I only stopped to walk at aid stations and finished the run at 2:19:23, only 7 minutes longer than my first half. I expected so much worse.
- I have been slotted with the hardest three legs for Hood to Coast because no one else wanted them and I was in no position to be picky. So now I will begin the long and fun journey of hill repeats and speed workouts. I couldn’t be more excited because a) if I do poorly, I have the excuse “well these were the hardest runs,” or b) if I do well, I get to brag about running the hardest Hood to Coast legs :)
- I carbed up for my half marathon, so I am going to do a month of strict keto before I get back to attempting CKD because I want my body to be keto adapted before I start playing around with it. Also, I don’t have any long runs in the near future so I can get away with not carbing up.
Life is rad.
