Even though I write my Thursday posts on Wednesdays, by the time the middle of the week rolls around there’s really zero chance that I will write anything too meaningful. It’s the perfect day to just sit down and write whatever comes to mind. Also, it helps to look back at my iPhone pictures to see what the heck happened this week.
One thing I know for sure is that my allergies have come back with a vengeance over the past two weeks. CAN’T. STOP. SNEEZING. I haven’t dealt with them since last May- I remember they were awful when I was away in Florida for Memorial Day and I went running with tissues. I haven’t taken anything for them yet because 1) I don’t know where my allergy medicine would be and 2) I’m too cheap to buy more and 3) I honestly don’t know if it even really helps.
Regardless of all the pollen, I’ve still been running outside and loving it. But holy humidity! On Monday and Tuesday it wasn’t even that “hot” (like in the 60s) but you could definitely feel that the humidity was back. And I made the not-so-wise decision to run fast for the first time in like 6 months on Monday. As soon as I started the harder part of my run I felt like I couldn’t breathe. Good thing it was a fartlek run and I could do pretty much whatever I wanted.
This morning on my 5:15am drive to body pump I was thinking about how my car turns 15 this year. That’s almost as old as people are when they start driving! Weird to think about having something for that long. Maybe one day we will get a second car…maybe.
Going along with the one-car thing, I’ve been on the search for a gym in my new neighborhood. You know, because waking up at 4:30am to drive 25 minutes to the gym and then have to shower there (and leaving Rob to walk to the light rail to get to work) is not ideal.
I’m also on the lookout for a nearby nail salon that is reasonably priced. I got them done last Saturday (like May 2nd) and felt like the place I went to didnt’ do a great job. But then the regular manicure I got done there lasted 10 days (I got them done again today) and they didn’t look nearly as bad as they usually do after that long. They were still in decent shape after lots of cooking and cleaning over this past weekend. Sidenote: I really miss the price and convince of New York nail salons.
Are you guys impressed that I have managed to blog 5 days in a row again? Don’t get used to it, I have no idea how I managed it this week:) I’ll be away this weekend for my friend’s bachelorette-however, with 12+ hours on the train (between there and back) I may actually get a ton of blogging stuff done. Or I will just drink wine and sleep. We will see I guess!
What is the longest amount of time you have ever had the same car?
Do you suffer from allergies in the spring?
When you get a manicure how long does it last?
