Nothing to see here, people..

1/13-1/17: Got nothin. Rest. 
1/18: 6 miles, outside. 53 min (8:57? pace)
1/19: 7 miles, outside. 1:07 
Easy run with JBang. (9:32? pace). Heeding EC advice about slow, easy runs. 

Trying to post on my craptastic phone on the way to work, so apologies for the random fat fingered spelling errors and the possibly inaccurate run info. My memory is definitely not what it once was.

Lessons learned in the last month: running on weekends after long periods of weekday rests (like.. 5 or 6 in a row) mean runs will not feel great. Always great afterwards of course but during? 


Still embracing January as my easy month but trying to forge a plan for a smarter, more efficient training season come February. Maybe I'll finally get a little (race) faster?

In other great news, I talked my neighbor friend into doing the half with me. Now I have a run friend right down the street! 

Also, we have some company now that my MIL is staying with us, so hopefully I can talk JB into running with me on the weekends. 


After a harrowing first experience with straight shots of apple cider vinegar, I decided to bottle up that beast and shove in the back cupboard. However, I'm at my wits end with my flailing digestive system and had recently read an article detailing a syndrome (again. i have no memory but I'm certain there is a medical term) of under producing of the stomach acids that help break down foods, describing my exact symptoms: 

Uncomfortable feeling of fullness after (even small) meals - check!

Gas and indigestion - check!

Belching - duh.. Check check check!

In he past I have taken pancreatic enzymes and probiotics, which have temporarily helped but I am looking for any help I can get in this area.

So, tidbits where I again welcome some ACV back in my life. I dug it out from behind the mountain of sugar and spices, and shook "the mother" out of that Braggs.

"The mother".. Get it?

Anybody.......?  Oh! C'mon!


I find that drinking it mixed with a bit of warm water is almost like tea. Really sour, pungent feet soaked tea. However, there is a little less choking and coughing as the ACV goes down the gullet but in the last few days I've already felt a slight improvement in my digestive health overall, as well as my general mood. 

Although, that might also have a little to do with the fact that I slept for 10 hrs both Friday and Saturday nights.


Awkwardly ending this post because I wrote it originally on my phone and I just... Bleh.

Anyways, here's to hoping this week moves faster than the weekends.

  1. I hope the week moves fast as well. Though last weekend went by so quickly. I'm always envious of people who can write posts on their phone. I'm already terrible with grammar and spelling so lord knows I don't need to type anything on my phone.
