    I like/don’t like how I’ve been working out enough lately that one rest day makes me feel lazy.

    Consistency is nice, but I also need to remember I need rest sometimes.

    Last week:

    • Sunday: walked 7 miles
    • Monday: zumba/strength training
    • Tuesday: running/intervals/strength training
    • Wednesday: 25 mins arc trainer/strength training
    • Thursday: rest
    • Friday: Run/strength training
    • Saturday: 1hr arc trainer/strength training
    • Sunday: walked ~14 miles

    Yeah, it was okay that I went home after work yesterday to do laundry, make 4 batches of vegan sausage and go to bed early. (Early being 11:45, but still.)

    Yesterday. Actual distance more like 14 miles. Coney Island -> Gowanus. (Then subway home. Attn stalkers: the end of this map is not where I live.)

    I had a great plan to make an Instagram video of my walk, and I recorded a second at a time from a few different places I passed, but around mile 6 my Instagram refreshed and I lost everything :( Anyone know how to make Instagram not do that?

    I’ve walked further than this, but this felt really hard for some reason. The last like 3 miles my calves and hips hurt, but I was fully committed to making it to the new Ample Hills ice cream in Gowanus. At the end I got a half oatmeal cookie/half chocolate stout & pretzels cup and ate it on their roof deck before heading home to collapse and sit.

    After my victory at pub golf, I woke up in dire need of a breakfast burrito (and with a burned tongue from impatiently eating empanadas last night.) It was easier to go to the store and make my own than to find one that was up to my standards.

    I’ve never watched American Ninja Warrior, but this is the first woman to ever attempt/complete the final course and she is a POWERHOUSE.

    Listening to the announcers lose their minds every time she finishes an obstacle is pretty adorable.

    How can any human have that much upper body strength??

    Is It OK to Wear the Official Race Shirt on Race Day?

    The arguments made here are:

    No, wearing the race shirt is a rookie move.
    vs
    Yes, unless you’re a grumpy elitist.

    I’m inclined to agree with the latter. I’m not pro-new-shirt-race-day but also, who fucking cares? (The pro-argument in this case is all “do it! It’s awesome!” which is further than I’d go, but I’ve certainly stopped harboring any judgement for people who do this…)

    Maybe it’s because I’m an old and long ago stopped giving a shit about being ‘cool’?

    I saw someone wearing this shirt today and they are my new hero.

    Not sure what I’d do if my friends couldn’t hang with Andrew Lloyd Webber references.
(for the record, they tasted like regular carrots.)
