I can sum up running this week pretty easily. It's sucked. I've felt completely healthy and back to normal at all times, except while running I feel totally sick again - exhausted, hard to breathe, headache, etc. I managed two pathetic 5 milers and finally made the decision to take today off, even though it really pissed me off. I woke up with a sore throat again, so it was probably the right choice. Not that I can't run through a sore throat, but that's how this whole thing began, and I'd rather not go down that road again. Plus, I'm using the time I would have spent running to blog, so you're welcome.
I appreciate all the advice on my running dilemma - 6:30 pm tonight or 3:30 am tomorrow? I'm surprised how many people said do the night run! I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, because clearly most people are leaving work with significantly more energy than me. Some nights I bypass the couch and just go directly to bed at night.
We'll be attempting the 3:30 am run. If I had to do my long run at night, I'd just spent the whole day fretting about it, plus I have no idea how to eat for that. Do I eat dinner first? What would I eat? The questions are endless. Plus, I've done 20 miles before work in the past. So let's hope this rest day cures me.
Onward to more exciting topics - I made a huge change in my life last night.
It's not. Also, when I got it for Christmas 2011, I had no idea I was about to become an aunt. So a good chunk of that 16G is taken up with baby pictures. I know some (ahem 2-3) of my readers are still back in the dumb phone era, so let me explain - once you choose a memory size, you can't ever add more. I was stuck. It had gotten to the point where I actually had to delete pictures to take more pictures, like some sort of peasant or something. That's no way to live.
I figured sometime this fall I'd look into upgrading, but I wasn't in any hurry. Then the iOS 7 came out, and everyone was talking about how great it was. You needed like 3G of memory for it, and I probably didn't even have one of whatever letter is less than a G.
Because my mom is awesome, she decided to call around for me yesterday to see if any 5S phones were available in my area. She texted me at the end of the school day that she found one place but didn't know if it was close enough.
It was less than a mile from the grad class I was about to attend. Class also got out early. If that isn't a sign from the universe, I don't know what is.
I got to the Best Buy at 6:30 pm. I left at 9:10pm. In retrospect, I really wish I'd brought dinner, but I was able to avoid flying into a hanger rage because I brought my kindle so I could read more of Orange is the New Black, and I was too excited about my new phone. If you are getting the new iPhone less than a week after it hits the shelves - you clearly need to expect a wait (please note that, angry lady muttering to herself and being a total bitch to the salespeople).
I don't consider myself a total social media addict. I don't even go on instagram some days. But I'll admit, even before I went to Best Buy, I considered the problem of how I could post a picture of the new phone (since our camera is most likely still in Grand Turk). I guess I could have done a mirror selfie, or had Eric take a picture on his phone. But I don't feel like wearing makeup today, and the bottom line is it looks like an iPhone. If you really want to see it, just go anywhere in public and you'll probably see like 5 people on one. If not, the box will have to be sufficient.
When I finally got home about 9:30 pm, my night got even better. I had a gift from Eric waiting for me.
|This is coming on all my runs now.|
Anyone else get the new iPhone? What should I check out?
If not, what first world problems have you faced lately? I realize that my problem of having to delete pictures to take pictures and not having space for the new operating system will be hard to top.
