I lied to you yesterday.
I did. And I’m sorry.
Except I’m not.
After blogging, I decided that I really didn’t want to walk Denali.
I wanted to run.
Actually, I think I wanted to wear my new moisture-wicking capris from Old Navy and decided that a run was the only way to test ’em out.
Aren’t they cute?
I picked them up on Saturday with my Crowdtap coupon and was pleasantly surprised that my “swollen” thighs and 33.5-week belly fit – or sort of fit – into the size small. “They stretch now, fit later” is my new saying. I picked them for more than fit, though - they are compression, cute (love the stripe) and moisture-wicking.
Sunday’s run put the moisture wicking to the test as it was nearly 70 degrees by the time we headed out.
No worries, though, I made sure to hydrate.
Yep, I sure did bust out the Nathan handheld. Mark said it was like old times. Yeah, except instead of gels in the zipper pouch I put a plastic bag to pick up poo.
The run, all 2.57 miles of it, was OK. Not great but not horrible. I’m noticing that I get stitches a lot more often and that I need to sometimes walk a bit longer than I’d like – walk breaks totaled 0.5 mile yesterday :(
Thankfully, the capris held up better than me. I’m not sure how to compare them – my others are C9 from Target – but they were comfy and cool and didn’t stink this morning after air drying on one of three towel bars in the half-bath downstairs.
And speaking of the half-bath …
I was warned by a very smart and lovely lady that picking at wallpaper was addicting and you shouldn’t do it.
Why don’t I listen?
It began with just a tiny spot to see how easily it would pull off and kind of grew when I had to pee six times before work the other day. Thank goodness Mark wasn’t mad but he sure did it make it clear that I was going to be responsible for finishing through.
