Hump Day Check In and the Inevitable

I'm LOVING and HATING the time change at different times of the day... I LOVE the change first thing in the morning when the sun is coming up on my run:

And I HATE when I'm walking to my car after work at 5:30pm and it's dark out.  That ensures I will be getting nothing done in the evening and will be in bed by 8:30pm...

As far as my workouts go this week here's my standings!
Monday:  4 miles -- because of time constraint before I needed to be home and in the shower I was only able to get 3 miles in.  But I'm happy with that! 

Tuesday:  strength training -- I went easy and just did some weights in my apartment instead of going to the gym.  I didn't do any legs, just upper body

Wednesday:  sprints -- I'm still learning how to make the most of my sprints but this morning I got up too late to go to the gym so I just went outside and went back and forth between sprinting 0.1 mile and 0.15 mile.  It kicked my butt!  That means I wasn't able to do it for very long but it's a start! 

Thursday:  5k
Friday: strength training
Saturday:  8 miles 
Sunday:  Rest

I'll spare you the pictures and details but I'm 99% sure I have a big toenail that's working it's way off.  I've never had this happen before and it has to be from running because I never dropped anything on it.  Now it's black and blue and more sensitive than it has been.  It's taking FOREVER to fall off!!  This has been going on for at least 4 months or so but just recently turned blue.  I'm a bit of a perfectionist/control freak so knowing this is the inevitable but not knowing when it's finally going to happen is KILLING me!  I need it done and over with NOW. But I guess I just have to let nature take it's course....

Happy Hump Day!


  1. I'm with you on the time change. But I do like that it is lighter in the morning again. I'm a morning runner and I don't like running in the dark!

    1. I agree! Luckily, this week I get to work the later shift so I can run in the morning when it's light out
