Greetings, and a good Thursday to you! I’m just popping in over here with a few updates. First of all, I have a guest post up today at Fit Bottomed Girls (a website with one of my favorite tag lines of all time), where I’m writing about weight loss and maintenance.
For any folks coming over here from FBG, hello! Welcome! Please come in, look around, make yourselves at home — I do not even mind if you put your feet up on the coffee table.
In other fitness-related news, my physical therapy has been going so well I am back on a regular running schedule of one day off, one day on. That’s 3-4 runs a week! I thought it might never happen! I certainly feel like I’m starting over, though. I’m just now able to run 2-3 miles at a time, and only a few times have I run 2 miles without taking a break. I don’t even want to talk about my pace. Wait, who am I kidding? Of course I want to talk about my pace. HA! Right now, it’s about 45 seconds per mile slower than my long-run training pace was last fall. Ouch. Of course, it’s summer; it’s hot; it’s humid; it’s disgusting; it will get better soon. Over all, I am thrilled with the progress I’ve made since injury struck and I’m looking forward to what’s to come.
On another subject entirely: I have a four/five-days-a-week teaching schedule this fall. I’m used to teaching two/three days per week and working the other days either at home or in my campus office (but not in the classroom). Now I’ll be in the classroom four or five days a week, and dressed for it. What this means is I now have to come up with more work-appropriate outfits per week than I am used to. Getting dressed in a stylish and professional manner is not all that hard when you only have to do it on Tuesdays and Thursdays, you know? But now I will have to come up with more different outfits every week. Add to that: I don’t want to buy (m)any new clothes this fall for financial reasons. ‘Twill be a challenge. I’m thinking I might do the occasional post here about fashion where I might show you what I’ve been wearing and probably ask for suggestions. Would y’all be interested in such a thing? Let me know!
