This week I think I made some progress with speed, and that run in Austin is proof to me that some of what has made me soooo slow (and with a lot of effort for my slowness!) is our weather. Which, by the way, is finally improving! A breezy October 75F feels much better than the usual humid 79-81F that I ran through all summer. I am feeling like maybe I will be able to get some speed back after all. I am starting 'official' training for the Miami Half on 10/31.
M - leftover fried chicken / salad / mac 'n' cheese
T - shrimp, plantains, broccoli
W - tacos
R - tacos in salad form :)
F-S - away in Austin
S - big salad + some random prepared foods from WF
Sorry, this meal plan isn't going to inspire anyone. Maybe this week will be better.
Finished Here I Am, onto Today Will Be Different. (loved the former and loving the latter. I may be entering a reading renaissance.)
New season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend!
Music - New Bon Iver. Very interesting, but I'm not sure how I feel about it yet.
Podcast - Planet Money has been knocking it out of the park lately - I liked their Wells Fargo episode, the Subaru episode, and the story of the inventor/origin of self-checkout. Bonus: NONE of them are about the election. Speaking of which, I voted (by mail). Yay! Cannot wait until it's over.
Blog posts of note:
Laura Vanderkam's post on Fertility and False Choices. I'm not sure how I feel about the whole egg-freezing situation, but her post was thought-provoking as always :)Boho Berry's gorgeous Filofax Bullet Journal -- omg. I have Filo envy. (But I'm not going to budge from my Hobonichi ways)
What have you been reading / listening to / eating / kvetching about lately? Have an idea for another category? Let me know :)
