So, did I run this weekend? That would be a no.
Between the weather and lack of motivation, I just didn’t do anything this weekend. That’s a lie. I’ve been baking* which is not helping my tightening jeans situation at all. It also didn’t help that the gym closed super early on Friday and didn’t open on time on Saturday so I was forced to miss both of the classes I signed up for. Weak English and their fear of snow. Grumble, grumble...
Instead, I ran 7 today. On the human hamster wheel. At the gym that was surprisingly open even though there’s the fear of a few snowflakes later today. A miracle indeed.
I ran it in 1:19:27. A crappy time for most of you, but pretty respectable for this slow poke on her LSDs.
Another miracle—I finally got to sign up for a spin class which is happening this evening. It’s taken me two weeks to get into a class. That’s insane. Let’s hope the double workout today helps counteract the not-so-healthy food I’ve been enjoying for a few weeks now.
To counter the foul mood the English, their pansy ways and their shit weather have put me in, I leave you with these fun links.
- Mock the English and their inability to name a road or town without a double entendre.
- I really wish I had been in Liverpool station when they filmed this T-Mobile commercial. Looks like fun.
- This one’s been popping up on Facebook. A clip from the Ellen DeGeneres show with probably the funniest caller I’ve ever heard. Here’s a snippet from the convo: “I love Jesus but I drink a little.”
- Our fellow RBF, the Loose Moose, is jetting off to Rome next week. Go harass her and maybe she’ll buy a bunch of Popeners and start holding blog contests of her own. I can but hope.

*I need to both thank and scold the Erratic Epicurean for bringing the Pioneer Woman’s cooking blog to my attention. Everything so far, including the fruit bars (with raspberry jam...amazing) that I’ve been packing away like they’re going out of style, has tasted fan-freaking-tastic. The only problem is that it’s not helping the jeans situation mentioned above. Oy.
