Is it Thursday already? Well that’s good because this week has been a crazy one and the sooner its over the better. After a couple weeks away (or maybe just one? I can’t keep track) I’m back for some Thinking Out Loud! Please ignore any underlying tones of frustration in this post. That’s just the kind of week it’s been:)
So now that it’s October it seems like it’s “officially” fall. I’m trying to get excited about this awesome running season but I can’t help but dread the winter. I think I am going to wear shorts and tank tops for as long as possible. I don’t even want to think about wearing layer upon later again. Ugh.
This is what I imagine all those layers must feel like
While I’m not really into all the pumpkin stuff that seems to be all over the place lately, I do enjoy baking with pumpkin from time to time. Last weekend I made Paleo Running Momma’s Honey Pumpkin Pie Muffins. They were a total win. Easy enough to make, and can be eaten at any time of day. Well done, Michele:)Yes I eat off plastic baggies at work, don’t judge
So if you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I encountered several rats while running Wednesday morning. This doesn’t happen very often, so to see 3 during one 5 mile run was pretty crazy. And gross. I was trying to have a nice relaxed run, but can you really stay relaxed with rats running around your feet? To be fair there is really just one area that I have ever seen them in plus it was trash day so I should have known better. But still. Gross.
I have been practically living in my compression socks lately. I should probably get a couple more pairs and then I could just have one for each day of the week. I have been wearing them when I get home in the evening, then sleeping in them, and running in them in the morning. I just don’t wear them to work (until I start wearing boots). The other day I wore a skirt and noticed that there was a line under my knees, probably from wearing the socks for so long. I guess that means I’ll have to stop wearing dresses and skirts.
I’m back to falling behind on reading blogs again. If I have one day where I don’t have any time to read them then I feel like the rest of the week goes downhill and I just fall way behind. I went back and forth between writing this post or reading blogs, but I had a feeling if I read blogs my comments would be totally random or not make any sense. At least thinking out loud posts are supposed to be random and not make sense:)
Thanks for sticking around through that! It was a real true thinking out loud post in which I had no idea what I was going to write until it was on the screen.
Who else is as ready for the weekend as I am?
How often do you wear compression socks?
Are you a pumpkin fan?
