Running Update

We’ve barely touched May and the mercury is already nosing 100°. Ugh. FML. The show must go on.

Occasionally I can get in an early run outdoors, but usually I’m relegated to the treadmill. Honestly it isn’t so bad because at least there I have about an hour to devote to mindless television. Foreword: apologies to all my friends who recommended shows for me to watch. I continue to watch the same I have been watching for years. First, I finished Brothers & Sisters. Then, I watched Younger (currently awaiting the next season). Now I’m on Revenge.

I’m more of a Hulu fan

The truth is this: besides Younger, I’ve seen the other series at least once before. Creature of habit much? I just have a problem committing to a new show with several episodes I have to figure out. I’m sure that’s the whole point, but when I’m running, I want to sink into the show with little extra effort.

Seems staying at home does have its perks. Like running for alone time.

But also seeing this amazing sight! I really really really don’t like geese, but seeing the cute little babies before they become angry, drab creatures is exciting. I’ve heard geese babies typically stay where they’re born. Dammit. They just poop on everything and drives me insane. Yuck.

Why did the goose cross the road?

The most important reason to run is so I can continue imbibing in the bakery madness my home has become. Comfort foods extend to bread, old-fashioned favorites, and the like; mine is cookies. Guess it could be worse, right? And when mini-cookie maker gets started, we just can’t stop. Needless to say, I’m enjoying it immensely! My heart and blood sugar are overcome with happiness. Remember this for when I need an intervention.

I ask you –

Shows you’re watching now?

Recommendations? I probably won’t watch them, but I enjoy you trying.

What’s the summer average temperatures where you live?

One thought on “Running Update

  1. I’d probably go for something simple that requires zero investment to enjoy, like “Barney Miller” or “Cheers”. Showing my age.

    If not watching, howzabout listening? Some unasked for recommendations:
    1. Sonata No. 3 in A Major, 1st Movement (Allegro), Arcangelo Corelli
    2. “Life in the Fast Lane”, Eagles
    3. “Blue Collar Man”, Styx
    4. “Peace of Mind”, Boston.
    5. “China Grove”, Doobie Brothers
    6. “Jessica”, Allman Brothers
    7. “Pride and Joy” Stevie Ray Vaughn
    8. “Come Out and Play” The Offspring (This was STOUT’s breakaway song back in the day.)
    9. “Sabotage” Beastie Boys
    10. “Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G Major, 1st Movement” J.S. Bach
    11. “September”, Earth, Wind, and Fire.

    Happy running!
