This morning I woke up in a better mood than I have been in for quite some time now. That whole grumpiness thing is non-running related but I feel as though a lot of it has been worked out, hillside pep talk and all. (Yes, I get grumpy and grouchy. I try to keep the blog upbeat but I’m still human and have those days.)
I hit up the Parkway with P-Funk, the Reporter, and Kris10 to run some intervals this morning. And I am super happy to report that my 800 meter repeats went very well. Granted I had four on deck so I think a better judge will be when I get to six and seven of those bad boys. However, it’s the little confidence boost that I needed. I practically skipped into my house after I unlocked the door.
This leads me to my not-so-deep Thankful Thursday.
Today I’m thankful for working things out. I’m thankful for partners who listen as well as vent. I’m thankful for getting over the grumpiness. I’m thankful for girlfriends who send you baskets of junk food because they know you’ve been grumpy. I’m thankful for intervals that make you believe in your ability again. I’m thankful for new gals in the running group who are great additions. I’m thankful for laughing in the middle of the night because a hanging shirt looked like a scary something before my eyes adjusted. I’m thankful for little dogs. I’m thankful for sisters who don’t ever judge. I’m thankful for new blog friends who are wonderful and email me random and hilarious things. I’m thankful for becoming closer with folks I didn’t know too well before. And I’m thankful for rabbits.
What are you thankful for?
Seriously you crack me up! I'm glad your feeling better. I'm so thankful for long runs with my running buddy and feeling like all is again right with the world after!
I am thankful for that lovely image of a strutting cat you have left in my mind.
And those very same people are thankful you are not so grumpy anymore because everyone loves B.o.B the mostest when there's a smile on her face.
Wabbits? That could be a whole other blogpost I'm thinking. Glad you iz better after you haz cheezburger. I'm thankful that tomorrow is Friday.
I'm thankful for the same thing. I've been grumpy a lot lately. grumpy hugs!
I'll cheers to that!
I've been in something of a non-running related funk (that has then carried over into my running), too. I'm thankful for friends who make me spend a long run giggling and joking and for the fact that my husband has a ride to work so that our current one-car situation, though far from ideal, is workable.
I am thankful you ended your "Thankful Thursday" post with randomness about rabbits. Me * Reading reading then all of a sudden BAM rabbits… My mind did a double take wait.. what… reread ok that was just random. =)
Rebbits? WTF is that about? Volkswagon Rabbit?
Did Daisy become a rabbit?
Ohhh wait, rabbit is a corkscrew opener. You opened a bottle of wine last night and that is why your eyes weren't adjusted. Got it. Thanks for clarifying.
This grumpy thing must be contagious! I'm meeting up with a running buddy today though so maybe I'll work it all out too!
Man…I can relate…I has the grumpies this week but decided I was being stupid about dwelling on them and talked myself into a better mood.
…and a great tempo run helped things out as well…
Laughing out loud and my kids came and asked about the pics… super funny.
I'm thankful for this cooler weather just in time for my long run!!
I love running 800s! I'm glad the grumpiness is passing. We do all have those days, weeks, etc.
