Don't blink. Just run.

Where training meets fandom. And everything in between.

Face The Music Friday #29

on April 11, 2014

Fitness this week:

Saturday – 4 hours of raking the yard

Sunday – Jamestown Bridge 10K

Monday – rest/chiro appt

Tuesday – 1 hr Unleashed OCF class

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday – rest


So this week didn’t go exactly as I had planned. I ended up switching schedules with someone Mon/Tues/Wed while they were on a trip so I worked different hours. I’m a creature of habit and when things aren’t part of my regular routine, I get thrown out of whack. I’ve had a lot of little extra things to do this week and, along with working those different hours, I just didn’t manage to get my workouts in that I wanted. For instance, instead of the run I planned on last night, I fought with a filing cabinet and my car for 1/2 hour. By the time I got home, I’d already said screw it.




This weekend will be the first time I run 7 miles as part of my training plan. I’m a little nervous, but it looks like we’ll have perfect weather this weekend so I’m looking forward to it. We also have a lot going on in terms of doing stuff around the house so we’ll be moving around plenty. I’ve got more yard work to do to prep the lawn after all that raking last weekend, plus we’re going to grab some paint because Tara will be home for April vacation and she plans on repainting the office. We’re finally going to hang up my race medals on the awesome hanger that I got for Christmas so I’m really excited they can be displayed because I’ve worked damn hard for them. I can do some during and after pics because she already started taking shelving down so it’s not technically a full before picture, but you’ll get the idea.

I’m gonna keep it short this week, so straight into the music we go. I’m a big fan of Broadway and musicals in general. I love music so much and seeing it acted out just makes me love it even more sometimes. Needless to say, I watch Glee. I loved the idea of it and when it started I liked how they mixed up or mashed up songs and sometimes even made them better. The story lines are pretty weak, but I still watch because of the music. I’ve actually discovered several songs I love through watching it that I didn’t previously know.

This past week’s episode “Bash” started with this haunting Stephen Sondheim song from Into The Woods. I thought it was hauntingly beautiful and it gave me goosebumps (even listening to it again as I found the YouTube video).

  1. Sorry the week hasn’t exactly gone as expected but looks to be a fun but busy weekend! And something active is better than nothing!

      I’m very excited about getting organized this weekend! It will do wonders to settle my mind. We haven’t done well with shopping so far tonight – we couldn’t find a bedding set we agreed on in 3 different stores. Crazy business. Tomorrow brings on new missions!

  2. Good luck with your 7 miler this weekend! I wish I would have started watching Glee!

  3. Good luck with your 7 miler!! You can do it!! You did a 10k last week! I love
    Reading about your Journey and I think you are doing awesome!:) keep up the great work!

    Also- I don’t watch glee, but I bet I’d like it! Did you ever watch Smash? I loved that show-or the first season at least… The 2nd season wasn’t as good!!

    • Courtney says:

      Thanks! I’m mostly just focused on making sure I can handle the distance, even if I walk half of it. 🙂

      I bet you would like it. I’m pretty sure it’s on Netflix. I never watched Smash…but can’t remember why. I think it was because it had a girl from American Idol that I couldn’t stand. I think she was the winner or runner-up maybe? I don’t know now. It didn’t seem interesting in the promos I saw anyway.

  4. Sorry you had a rough week, good luck on your run! I love musicals too, I watch Glee but I have been having troubles with this season.

    • Courtney says:

      Thanks! Yeah, I feel like they’re focusing too much on older cast members, but I also kind of like that because I hated when I thought they were leaving the show, so I’m torn. The episode where they shut down glee club would have been a GREAT finale to the whole show itself. I even commented on that during the episode. Unfortunately I think they’re dragging it out for at least one more season. They should know when to walk away. Of course, I’ll still be watching just to see what they do with the music.

    that glee performance was AWESOME!!! (just watched the episode this morning!)

    I’m such a creature of habit too! Good luck on your long run this weekend!

  7. I used to be addicted to Glee. The first few seasons it was so great friends and I would have Glee dates… now..ehhhh…

  8. Hope the 7-miler went ok, and sorry I was offline and missed the 10K report but sounds like it went great. Love that no matter what comes up you stay pretty darn dedicated!

  9. I can’t stand it when my routine gets messed up!! Drives me nuts! I hope your run over the weekend went well!
