You Look Mean Man!

Friday, October 19, 2012

The words spoken to me today when I waved to a guy on the track who was walking backwards. Nope, just my running face.

Today I went 4.95 miles. That's .13 less than Tuesday (or Monday? I forget.) I knew I was running slower today for some reason. I wore my running jacket because it was cold, but the sun was out so it was actually hot so I took the jacket off after the first 20 minutes. I felt that made me a little faster, so maybe I was just getting over heated? Maybe the over heating was due to my mean face making my blood boil? Who knows?

I was going to skip a challenge this week for BLC16, it was the workout with a buddy challenge. My reasoning is that I still haven't found anyone in Greenville that I like, and the very small few I have found that I kinda like are busy or are on the other side of town... okay yeah... that sounds a little mean... There's no way I'm running with my grandparents, because 1, they don't run, and 2, I don't want to run with them. Running is the only time I have away from them. Finally, it's my alone time. Me, some music, and some people at the track that try and get my attention to ask me if there dog chasing me is bothering me, or tell me that I look mean... until they realize I had headphones in and that I'm listening to music so they stop trying to communicate. It's my alone time. Sure I'm alone writing this blog, but my grandparents move around the house and sometimes come into my room saying I should apply to this job they found that expired in 2011 or requires like 5 years of experience, or they'll argue about the correct way to shred an onion. It's my alone time, yes I need it.

Now that paragraph is a little long, so I'm starting a new one to explain the reasoning for typing the one above. I joined this running club on meetup.com. I posted that site as an alternate way to run with a buddy for my BLC16 team, however I just signed up today and didn't even plan on using it for the sake of my alone time. I found a group and I believe I'm going tomorrow. They seem normal... so if I don't post on this site tomorrow, I've probably been raped, or mugged or my organs are being sold on the black market or something like that. But I found some people, I'll reserve whether or not I'll like them to myself when I find out tomorrow, I won't let my mean face give it away either. :-P

I also found a 5k in my area that is $37 for late registration. I've never seen one that cheap, so I may use that 5k as my Trick or Treat Trot the following week, I'd just do it 24 hours early. That is if I justify paying for it. I'm quite frugal... and broke... it's easier to be frugal when you don't have the means to not be frugal.

I'm also redoing my Push Ups, Sit Ups and Squats plans. I know it may sound dumb, but I haven't gotten out of week 4 for the push ups for the past like 2 months it seems. And it just gets harder and harder, and the more reps you do in a set, the longer the workouts get, and it's just making me very bored for the time being. So Sunday will be my new exhaustion tests. I'll just start in new columns in week 1 (I hope :-P)

Hopefully I'll get to bed early. That group meet is at 8:30am. If my face looks mean at 6pm, imagine what I look like at 6am!

*Note: the guy and I actually came to the conclusion that the music was just making me intense, I just can't let jokes go :-P*

    Hehe! I had the exact same response as Sonia... I was cracking up, but then I decided that I am now worried that you're going to wake up in a bathtub full of ice!!

    My hubby also gets a mean face when he runs... apparently I look friendly (even when I feel like I'm dying) because everyone wants to chat with me, but people avert their eyes from my hubby... I don't blame them... he does kind of look like the type of person who would meet someone to jog and then steal their kidneys and leave them unconscious in a tub of ice...
