MILES RUN: 3 (yesterday)
PINTS OF GUINNESS CONSUMED: 3 (last night)
COMPLAINTS: No soccer game today (though, think I am playing tonight)
So, for the first time since I moved to Austin, it down poured. It stormed last night. There was lightning and some thunder and lots of rain. I don’t think it is by any means the end of the drought, but it was was a relief. Today is the first day the sun has been hidden behind clouds. Folks, that’s in TWO MONTHS. So, no, I’m not depressed about it. I am not saying another day of sunshine would have done me wrong, but it’s nice to have rain sometimes.
So, yesterday, I ended up running on a treadmill. Since I started training for the marathon, I have been running outside and I will tell ya what. My time has decreased. 3 miles and I was running 8 minute miles and I wasn’t dead afterwards. Maybe those hills are helping a bit! Do I think I will be running 8 minute marathon miles? No, I mean, come on, it’s 26 miles. Screw that. My goal… 9 minute miles. I think I can do it. Focus.
After my run I had my first experience at the Mean Eyed Cat. I freaking LOVE this place. Texas Country (which I never, ever thought I would be a fan, but hell, when in Rome…), J Cash all over the place (it’s a tribute bar) and fairly friendly bartenders (though, don’t expect them to ask you what you want, you just have to walk up and say “hey, I want a Guinness”). It’s a dive bar, but I wanted to wear heels and I did and ya know what, it didn’t matter. Ya know how sometimes you walk in and are like “F***, I stand out like a soar thumb…” maybe I did, but I didn’t feel like it. and because of this, I think I may have found my watering hole. Though, they do not carry liquor, just an fyi.
So, this morning, when my game was canceled I have to say, I wan’t that upset. My head kinda hurt because I hadn’t eaten any dinner. I watched some crap TV for a while… actually, I watched the Real Housewives of New Jersey and if I ever watch it again, you have permission to kick my arse and call me out. It was awful. Blech….
Luckily, I may be playing tonight, if my new friend needs me.
Anyway, cheers and keep on keepin on,
