Speed Bumps

Well my expectedly hectic week has already taken a toll on my meticulously planned schedule, I don't even know why I bother.

Last night I was planning 4 lovely miles of hill repeats when my phone beeped with a reminder for my 5:15 hair appointment. It's no secret, I love my hair dresser, and even if I didn't need the cut (which I did) I would still go see her. She just had her 2nd baby and this is her 2nd week back to work, so I was excited to catch up with her.

John and I actually changed to head out to run once I got home from there, but Peachie went crazy and got so upset when we were leaving to run that we decided on a 2 mile walk with her instead. I wasn't super bummed about not finishing out my miles for the day, they will get tacked on some where else, and since this is a cut back week, I am more concerned with quality miles than quantity.

This morning I woke up with the alarm and headed out for 7 miles with 3 @hmp. I made it maybe a 1/4 mile before I turned around, went home, and curled up with Peachie for some more sleep, a leisurely morning, and a big breakfast. I have no idea what happened, but as I started running I just didn't have it, I didn't care about my paces and didn't have the excitement to be out for an hour, and again, I would rather change my plans, wait until tonight and have a quality run that I will feel good about rather than suck it up this morning and feel disappointed all day.
Today is the last day of August and I refuse to let it end without a stellar run, so I have something to accomplish tonight.

Fun Fact:  I have been seeing lots of rumors that Pumpkin Spice Lattes are out at starbucks- this is my absolute favorite and really the only kind of coffee I will drink! I am really excited to hit up SBux tomorrow AM and see if these rumors are true! Are you a pumpkin spice fan? Does your starbucks have the heavenly drink out yet?


  1. I haven't seen pumpkin spice lattes yet but my roommate is on the hunt for pumpkin ale. She's obsessed!! I'm so ready for FALL!!!

  2. This has been on my calendar for months and I was so excited when I woke up today that I could hardly contain myself! Don't worry about this morning, I slept in to. Sleep is just as important as training!!!

  3. i'm not really a starbucks fan (wayyy too strong for me hah!) but i love the idea of pumpkin spice. my favorite hot drink in the fall is apple cinnamon tea though. yum.

    and go get that stellar end of the month run! i'm looking forward to starting tomorrow off with a bang :)

  4. Pumpkin Spice Latte is my all time FAVORITE SB drink too! Lemme know if it's out.. they are heavenly!!!
