So since my marathon failure I've been running more. I am a pansy ass so I went from the track by my house to the treadmill when it started getting cold. But I'm still at it. I downloaded a new 5k training podcast and started it over pushing myself to go a little faster.
I have to say, despite some residual knee pain I'm just as addicted to the sweat. I literally feel myself getting antsy if I miss my morning run for some reason, like I'm jonesing for it. Much better than my Mike & Ike addiction.
Here's some more running observations. I like to think of myself as the Jack Handy of running thoughts.
-My ass is shrinking. I was leaving for a party the other night in some skinny jeans and Mems told me I should back in because my ass looked great. That's high praise from her.
-I may have been told that I'm almost like high school Katy again. That only means appearance wise. I have so much more world knowledge now, and know so many better curse words... plus my tolerance for vodka is much better.
-Award show/Pop specials are kind of awesome to watch while on the treadmill. For instance the TV was on mute while I ran, but the VH1 Divas Salute the Troops special was on and first Kathy Griffin was on looking awesome in a tiny camo bikini... then Katy Perry dropped from the sky in a red and white bustier with sequined hot pants... and my reserve to power through the last of my intervals was strengthened.
- I get really sweaty. Not like cute, red cheeked "glowing" bullshit. I'm red faced, frizzy haired and drenched in sweat. Admit it, you think that's hot don't you?
- The running is helping me get more daring with my clothing choices. I wore leggings as pants. That's almost as good as Conan wearing jeggings, but not quite.
-The best running music is Pink. First her songs, even the ballads have a beat that's perfect for my speed, and 2nd she's in such awesome shape I just think about that when I feel like stopping. Pink can kick anyone's ass so I can finish those fucking intervals.
- Coming in a close second is Eminem. One- I have an inappropriate crush on him so it takes my mind off the running... and also I enjoy run-rapping.
