I’m about to go running. I know I haven’t updated about that in a while, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been doing it. Running is just… boring, I guess. I have had nothing to say about it. I go, I run 3.1 miles, I stretch, I come home.
I usually have to pep talk my way through it or think of what I want to update about/email to a friend/write down/something because I have the shortest attention span known to mankind. I was thinking about downloading books on tape or something. Maybe that would’ve given me something to concentrate on. I’m still thinking about this for the future.
Instead, I decided to start a new program. I use Rundouble for all my smartphone run tracking needs. It’s the best Couch to 5K app I’ve found. It’s only available for Android, though. Sorry iPhone users. I’m sure you’ll find something that is almost as good.
The latest update to my app brought in some new programs, including a couch to 10k, a 5k to 10k, and a 5k improver.
I have decided that I must be insane, because I started the 5k to 10k program on Monday. I’m about to go to w1d2. It’s 6 weeks. Yikes! This gives me something to concentrate on and goals to work towards. So, it should help with my meandering attention.
I had a hard time deciding between this program and the 5k improver… but the improver is 16 weeks. No thank you…. or, maybe I’ll work on that one next. I don’t know. There are too many choices, and I want to RUN ALL THE THINGS!
So, that’s where I stand with my running at the moment. Thankfully it’s been cooler, so I can run on the trail without heat stroke being a concern.
In other news, I’ve been working on some DIY Halloween decorations. I’m pretty happy with everything so far, and I cannot wait to finish decorating! Halloween is seriously my favorite holiday. I’m pretty excited.
Oh! I took Trinity apple picking on Monday. She was upset that I went without her. So, now I have a whole bunch of Gala and Red Delicious apples on top of the Jonagold I’m still working on!
I didn’t bring my camera, but I do have a few Instagram photos to share! I was excited because the pumpkins are ready. We’ll wait until October to get ours, though. That way they’ll last until Halloween.
….and that is all. The trail is calling me.
