After being all thoughtful and serious in Tuesday’s post, I wanted to take some time to share some not-so-serious running and blogging related things. During the time I was working on my site not really posting I started a list of random frustrations that I felt the need to share. I am just hoping I can remember what I wanted to say because my notes are sort of vague! (Does anyone else write down ideas for posts and then not remember what the heck they meant?)
Running Clothes/Gear Frustrations
First of all, I feel like my running socks keep disappearing lately. They turn up eventually but for days I am convinced that the washer or dryer ate them. This morning I found one inside a pair of leggings that had been washed. Maybe I just need to check everything more carefully as I am folding my clothes.
Speaking of laundry, it’s that time of year where the clothes just pile up. Both Rob and I have been running more and wearing more layers. Cooler weather has also meant just more clothes in general. We typically don’t do laundry during the week because I hate having to fold it at the end of the night. By the time the weekend rolls around we have a ton to do.
Something weird was happening for a while with my running shoes. My right foot would feel like the laces were too tight or fitting weird. It happened with every different pair of running shoes for a few weeks. I tried loosening the laces and lacing them different and it still happened. So far this week it hasn’t happened so hopefully that was just a weird phase!
Usually in the fall I find myself moving pretty quickly from shorts to tights. I felt like I never really got a chance to enjoy the “in-between” period when capris were ideal. This year though, I have been wearing them for ALL my runs and workouts (I don’t like to bike in shorts and it’s too warm inside for full tights.) I think I have 4-5 pairs so I am constantly running out of them (see above for note about only doing laundry once a week). However, I do think this signifies what an amazing fall we are having and I really don’t want to have to make the transition to full tights!
I have never been so frustrated with passwords. Every day I am resetting a password for something. I just can’t figure out a good system to keep track of them because I am never in the same place when I want to log in somewhere. The more I reset it–> the more likely I am to forget it. Why do we need to make passwords so complicated? If I can’t even figure out how to log in to my own stuff I’m not sure how anyone else would figure it out.
There are a few things I just haven’t been able to figure out with my blog and I am trying to just stop worrying about them (they are pretty minor). There are only so many times you can search a support forum or try to chat with someone from a hosting company before getting too frustrated and giving up. I’m pretty sure that Bluehost and Bloglovin probably have me on some list for putting in so many support request in a 2 week period.
Do your running socks disappear? Do they turn up eventually?
How many password have you reset this week? (I am thinking 4 so far for me)
Do you like running in shorts, long tights, or capris? What have you been wearing for outdoor runs lately?Linking up with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud!
