Most of you know that Charlie and Zelda have struggle with their relationship over the past year.
Jealousy, hatred, you name it.
But now, it looks like they are both waving the white flag, and are, for now, getting along.
I do see problems down the road for the two of them, as the relationship is pretty one-sided at the moment.
Zelda’s all, “dude let’s be frands…”
And Charlie is like, “I ain’t gonna be a frand to you, but I ain’t gonna hurt you neither…”
Oh well. Progress.
And progress is what I’m slowly making after a few weeks of feeling blah.
Dare I say I trained like a real live athlete last week, as I was able to eat normally again by Friday.
Monday: 8.5 miles easy recovery
Tuesday: 8 x 400, 2 x 200
Wednesday: 9 miles
Thursday: 9 miles with elevation gain
Friday: 10 luxurious miles in the shade
Saturday: Off (XC meet day)
Sunday: 16 miles super easy
Now the paces for the week were the least impressive I have put together in years. I’ll give you that. With the temps hanging around in the 90s, I’m totally suffocating.
When you get the urge to peel off a mesh tank at 7 a.m., you know that you’re living in like Arizona or something. But you know, it’s just the unseasonably, global warming fall weather we get here in L.A.
I look ahead at the forecast daily, hoping for a day where the temperature is predicted to be sub 90 for the high. So far, no good.
I will stop looking, and just be pleasantly surprised when I don’t have to boil water for pasta in compression shorts and a sports bra. (And also just to remind myself again, I am never signing up for summer savings ever again. Do you know how much productivity we lose without AC? Because pretty much the only thing one can do without it is just hang out in a chair and moan, “it’s sooooo hawt.”)
But anyway, the last thing I wanted to share is that I have been absolutely in love with Alice Munro short stories lately. Totally obsessed.
I read Family Furnishings a few weeks ago, and now I’m reading this:
Just in case you needed a book recommendation, of course.
Books come in handy when it’s soooo hawt, by the way.
Have a great week!
