A Day Full of Nothing

I’ve done nothing productive today. Nothing. I’ve taken 2 naps, haven’t cleaned anything, and surprisingly I’m not too upset about it. Smile

Last night, the hubs and I stayed in and didn’t drink alcohol like good boys and girls. We finally watched 127 Hours.

Honestly, I’ve had that movie at home since the beginning of May. Why do I have Netflix again if I never watch the movies?

Anyway, if you don’t know already, it’s the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston who became trapped by a boulder on one of his climbs. He uses his own means to survive – including drinking his own urine. James Franco plays Aron and I thought he was really good. But I’ve got me a soft spot for James Franco.

And now you do too.


I thought the movie was just ok. I knew the ending to the story, so it made the content of the movie seem insignificant. Hubs thought the movie was slightly more interesting than drinking your own urine.

Then this morning was a 10 mile run with my training group. 4:45 wake-up call says what?

Next week we meet a half hour earlier. So if you think I look haggard in this week’s picture, I’m sure next week will be a treat.

Tired, puffy eyes.

The run turned out pretty good. I met a girl, Holly, that I ran with for most of the time. Chatting with her really helped me get through the run because I was so tired. The humidity was almost too much for me to handle today.

We ran by a bunch of rude houses flaunting their awesome in our face.

Those houses had a water view too.

Seriously, have you ever run by houses like this? The people that own them pick up their newspapers really slowly so you know it’s their house.

At mile 8, I tried some different fueling. A Cliff Shot in Razz flavor.

So gross. I could only choke down a little over half of it. I’m so jealous of you runners who can take these. It would make my races so much easier. The only thing worse would be drinking my own urine.

The Clif Shot didn’t give me any stomach problems the last 2 miles but I still had issues when I got home. Although the run was hard, my pace really improved from last week.

Distance: 10.11 Pace: 10:15 average
(I didn’t stop the Garmin for our 1-minute walk breaks every mile, but I did stop it for the 3 water stations.)

  • Mile 1: 9:51
  • Mile 2: 10:12
  • Mile 3: 9:32
  • Mile 4: 10:36
  • Mile 5: 10:23
  • Mile 6: 10:36
  • Mile 7: 10:39
  • Mile 8: 10:49
  • Mile 9: 9:32
  • Mile 10: 10:30

On tonight’s agenda:

Should be interesting. Smile

  1. Hell if I had been up that early I would have had the extra nap too! Isn’t it nice not to do a lot but feel so good about it? Although 10 miles is a big deal so you technically did something pretty awesome if you ask me!

    Gross. Can’t take.

  3. I saw Evil Dead on Thursday and it was hilarious! I didn’t really love the movies, but I loved the musical as did my husband and friends. Just make sure to poncho up if you are in the splatter zone. My husband took fake blood to the forehead and ruined a white shirt because his poncho tore.

    I’m with you on the Netflix. We stream a lot, but we never get around to watching the blasted DVDs. I want to cancel them, but I think my husband would cry.

    guess who is now phone stalking me? la fitness. AUGH that manager needs to GET A CLUE that his sales pitch killed it. KILLED IT.

  5. Too funny…I actually watched 127 Hours last night for my first time after having the Netflix envelope sitting around my house for a month too… I guess it’s hard to be excited about watching a movie where a guy cuts his arm off. I agree, it was OK. Beautiful scenery, though, and a good safety message for runners too – ALWAYS tell someone where you are going & when you’ll be back!

  7. I cannot get myself to try ANY kind of gel… the thought makes me want to vomit. Have you ever tried chips or regular gummy bears? I have had some luck with both. Had to use chips once because our cupboards were bare! haha

    You rekindled my obsession for James Franco. That man is a hottie. Even when he drinks his own urine.
