Wow! Where did the week go?? Let’s see…
It’s been (and will be for the next 6 months!!) so dark in the mornings (and evenings!) when I walk Abby…thank god for her disco leash!
Monday – 4 miles easy (Zone 1 HR) + strength training
Tuesday – 2 miles easy + 4 miles Tempo (Zone 3 HR)…FINALLY, in my 3rd week of this particular training cycle, I didn’t spend the entire 4 miles wanting to die!!
Wednesday – rest day and out for dinner with family to celebrate my cousin’s 31st birthday! We went to an Italian restaurant…THAT DIDN’T SERVE PIZZA. Isn’t that illegal? Should be. FYI, I really LOVE pizza…especially, obviously, with bacon.
A friend recently asked me what bands I used for my clamshells…I use the ones that I got here and this is kind what they look like…in awkward way!
Last night was SOOOOOO exciting for our team run. It was 14C/57F…in NOVEMBER…in CANADA. That’s like a heat wave!! And I totally went into my summer clothes and dug out my running shorts!!! 8 miles feeling almost naked. I was awesome!! And look at one of my teammates…she is in just a sports bra!!! And, as per usual, FG is towering above us!
Friday – did an easy 5 miles (Zone 1 HR) this morning – felt great!
Ok, as for my dating life. A friend of mine, who also reads my blog, just texted me saying that I need to do an update on it. People, seriously, it’s like a soap opera. Since NG ended things (back in July) I have dated a few men and here are some highlights:
Space Engineer Dude: it was over before it had really started when the waitress asked us what beer we wanted (we were at a pub that HE had suggested that basically only serves beer) and he said, “Oh, I don’t know. I don’t ever drink beer”. Whaaaaat? Then why are we here?? But it was REALLY over when he insulted my profession (and was clueless that he had) and even when I repeatedly asked him to change the subject because I found it hurtful, he kept digging his hole…trying to justify his opinion. He was so good looking with the ugliest personality. I politely asked him to never contact me again.
My Gut Knew Guy: I should have listened to my gut with this guy. Something was off. Right from the start. But I couldn’t put my finger on it and kept seeing him…and then one day he TEXTED ME (coward) and said, and I am DEAD SERIOUS, “I can’t continue to see you…you go to bed too early”. I just about fell over laughing. Ok, I actually did. And so did all my co-workers when I ran out of my office to show them his text!
Police Officer: We went out 6 times…then he TEXTED me (coward) and said, “I can’t continue to see you…I don’t see myself marrying you”. WHAT???? I should hope not!! We’ve only been out 6 times!!!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH MEN??? Again, after I got over the complete shock (marriage???) I laughed about this one.
MDH: Sigh. I know. You’re all screaming at me right now. There was an attempted reconciliation, but it soon went back to crazy land and I told him where to go…and let’s be clear, the sun doesn’t shine there. THIS TIME, I have no “what ifs”. It’s over for me.
Iron Chef: This one makes me sad. He is such a perfect guy. A chef. Competes in Ironmans. Incredibly nice. Loves canoeing and being outdoors. But for me, the chemistry just wasn’t there. And trust me, I tried to make it be there. But I just couldn’t. So I ended it. And let’s be clear, I didn’t do it via text message. I have bigger balls that My Gut Knew Guy and Police Officer. lol
So tonight I have a date with a new one. Stay tuned on Monday for the lastest on Days of Jane’s Life.
