Short Legs

Three more days till the run! This week I'm supposed to be doing short runs only. I did 4 miles this morning, I'll do 3 tomorrow and then 3 or 4 on Thursday. I'm trying to do the short runs a little faster than my long runs.  I'm still surprised at what a slow runner I am...i mean, I know I have short legs - anyone that knows my dad and mom can see where I got them from.  We're a long torso/short leg gene pool. But I don't think I can blame my 10 minute mile on that. I used to do solid 9 minute miles....maybe that will be my goal.

As for my commitment to eating whatever fits in my palm - I'm not doing too well on that.  I'm hoping that by writing about it, it will instantaneously fix itself.  We'll see tomorrow. 

I went to dinner with Mr. Byu (serg) after work.  We got all the way home after he picked me up from the office and I started getting depressed thinking about cooking something out of nothing. So, we went to a place called Art Cafe and had pizza and salad.  Why is it that before I eat pizza I find a way to think that it's actually diet food and then after I'm finished eating, I'm so clear about the fact that it's not..at all diet food. Dang it! The mental battle is killing me! I need some motivational thoughts or something here! At least at home there was always young cute chicks that I would see going to work or shopping, or at the gym, that would give you that female competitive motivation - here I dont feel it. It's just me and how I feel about myself - which is usually okay until I try on something that is tighter than I ever remember it being..and we don't have a dryer so i cannot blame it on shrinkage.

Tomorrow is another day.

  1. You forgot to add that the pizza was thin crust and not your typical greasy/cheese-loaded stuff like back at home. It was actually good and not so bad as it might read :-)
    p.s. regarding the young/cute chicks issue, the problem is that most of them walk around with their hijab :-)


So..what do you have to say about all this?
