There has been much going on lately between the graduations, the work situation (which I am not at liberty to discuss), and my complete inability to get my nose out of a book long enough to get ANYTHING done.
While I’m enjoying my rediscovered love for reading random stuff (I’m in a bit of a fluff phase at the moment, though), I have much to do and accomplish.
Like that 5k I want to be able to run.
30 minutes. Surely I should be able to work up to running for 30 minutes in early September, right? I haven’t tried to run in over a year, at least not more than a jog across the street in traffic. And my hip? Well we’ll just have to see how that is.
I actually had big plans to start training for this on Tuesday (when I started writing this post), but life happened. Or “I got home from work & it was too hot to leave again” happened.
But I’m planning to try the Couch to 5k program again. I’m hoping that I can actually run & even crazier, I’m hoping that I like it.
Other random bits:
- Apparently the first weekend in June is very popular for events. I’m having my graduation lunch tomorrow and many people are unable to come because they’re going to other parties/weddings/whatever. It will be great with the people who are able to come, but I’m disappointed that some more of the family members aren’t able to make it.
- I’ve noticed lately that there is an abundance of vampire-related books. I’m not even talking series (although there are a lot of them as well), but books that look like one-offs where the writer is trying to cash in on the trend. I swear to you – I was browsing through the library eBook list today & one of the books was “The Vampire & the Virgin”. Um, SERIOUSLY? I grow tired of the vampire related books, although I do still find the Sookie Stackhouse books entertaining.
- I thought there was more randomness, but I am apparently too tired from staying up much too late reading to remember what it was.
