First of all, Blogger finally went and did it. They forced me to switch to new blogger, aka, Blogger Beta. It's a quirky platform and I've never liked it but it wouldn't let me go to my dashboard without switching.
In other wierd news, I dreamed last night that I was sick and had a terrible sore throat. I remember thinking in my dream that I was going to call in to work and that it was going to be a hassle trying to get someone to cover for me since I was on call today. And I remember from the dream re-setting my alarm clock to 5:45 which is the time I needed to get the first kiddo up to get ready for school. Well, turns out THAT part was real and I didn't get up at 4 to go running. And now that I'm on call, I don't see how I'm gonna fit a run in this evening. Wifeypoo is doing something at church tonight so I'm home with the munchkins doing homework, dinner, baths, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.,
By the way, would someone please remind me of what my focus is supposed to be right now and of the #1 thing that will improve my running? Please!!! Please!!! Remind me that losing weight is my focus right now. Not speedwork, not tempo runs, not hill work, not anything else but losing weight. That being the case, why would I opt for a short(er) interval workout that burns 885 calories over a 5-6 mile, easy run that burns well over 1100 calories? On the other hand, it's just an extra 200 calories to do the long(er) run and I could adjust my intake to make up for that. And the speedwork does add some much needed variety to my schedule which can only help me to enjoy myself more and therefore run more and therefore continue to burn calories. Think I'll stick with plan A. I'm such a dork!!!
