31 Day Blog Challenge – Day 6/Face The Music Friday #65

on March 6, 2015

 

#6 – Your 5 senses right now

We all know what the senses are: sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. Let’s get right to it, shall we? (This was based on when I started writing this post on Thursday night)

Sight – the newest issue of Runner’s World on my nightstand

 

I cropped it kind of funny to take out my address label

 

Hearing – my Spotify playlist

 

 

Taste – these amazing roasted chick peas that Tara made

 

 

Touch – the keyboard

 

 

Smell – this awesome Yankee Candle that makes me WISH I was on a Seaside Holiday

 

 

 

 

Day 1 and 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5

So, there is my challenge for today, now here’s my Friday training update: I’m just getting back into the swing of things. Tuesday was my first “official” workout (if you don’t count shoveling snow) since Saturday, 2/21. I’ve had a horrid cold with an awful cough and when it’s in the lungs, there’s no way I’m pushing my body so I rested. And rested some more. And some more. I still have the cough now, but am trying to slowly work my way back. Let me tell you that Tuesday’s run was horrible. I felt like a beginner runner again.

 

 

I didn’t do anything on Thursday because snow screwed everything up again with about another 8 inches. I had kind of a down day anyway and just wanted to curl up under the covers. I plan on trying to get in a run after work today so hopefully the week will pick back up again. I really need to get my shit together again. I was on a streak and this being sick really put a damper on things.

I need a song that pumps me up and there’s not really anything more epic than this on my playlist…

E.S. Posthumus – Unstoppable

  1. I hope you feel better soon, and cannot wait until all that snow leaves you girls alone.

    I notice “Ho Hey” is on that Spotify list… have you seen Jimmy Fallon’s “all-clucking” chicken version of the song?? It’s amazing: http://youtu.be/PPftVQwyPs0

    I hope you feel better soon… lingering coughs are so terrible. Can’t wait for the day when shoveling workouts are but a distant memory! 🙂

      Yes, I love that song. And I have seen that video and it’s ridiculously funny!

      I’m definitely feeling better. Took about two weeks for the cough to go away but was able to do my 9-miler yesterday and felt decent.
