  1. Happy Friday, all!
  2. Hell or High Water?
  3. Got a good 10.6 mile run in on Saturday! Thus, I see myself as prepared for my half marathon this Sunday. Legs are a feeling it a little, but I walked all over the city yesterday (to the tune of 6+ miles), which I think helped them to feel not so terrible today.
  4. Good suggestions about the bluetooth stuff. May be worth looking into. Or maybe I just want a new car for the idea of having a new car, since my car was used when I bought it. Either way, I'm likely to buy a house before I get a new car, and where I live, I'm not likely to buy a house for, oh, at least five years!
  5. I came to the realization over the past few months that as nice as it would be to have a new Subaru that has bluetooth capabilities and whatnot, the guy and I really have no reason to get rid of our 2010 Subaru Impreza Hatchback with sunroof and seat warmers (more necessary when I was living in New England than now in CA) that has less than 60k miles on it. I will still daydream about a 2017 Subaru Crosstrek, however!

  8. Gosh, honestly? My coworkers. Or the fact that we attend about six MLB games a year as an office.
  9. My best friend in the whole world is coming to visit tomorrow, for three days! I am taking Friday off of work to go wine tasting and visit Muir Woods with her. Then a weekend of shenanigans shall ensue. Living in CA when she lives in VT does not make it easy to see her that much, so this is going to be awesome.
  10. Yes! This is my preferred way to run. I have even stopped using Charity Miles temporarily until I figure out how to make it work on my Android phone without having it live on my homescreen at all times. So, that means no phone! The track workout was an exception, and for working on my speed, a watch would be very useful.
  11. Nope. Last time I watched it was maybe season 3? Haha, that makes me feel old!
  12. Thanks for the recommendation! I have a FitBit One myself, but don't know where it is. I got depressed with it thanks to sitting at a desk all day while at my job. It also couldn't figure out my bike commuting, though I can't really remember what it did incorrectly any more. I'm thinking something along the lines of a Garmin watch... I'm mainly worried about comfort and a smaller face. I don't need anything that fancy. My friend had one that she could program the distances into, which was neat! I'd like something like that.
  13. Has anyone seen the preview for the movie called Raw? I saw it in the previews for Logan. Everyone in the theater was like, "Nope, think I'll pass." I am in the same boat.
  14. I met my boyfriend at a bar. He came up and introduced himself to me while I was talking with my friend about him, considering walking up to him and introducing myself to him. I don't think I'll ever be looking again, but in my past single life, I was not opposed to introducing myself to guys. I had reasonable success with it, too. As for the cashier situation... In college, my good friend was a cashier at a convenience store. She met her then future, now ex-husband there by ringing him up a few times. That's the only experience I know about that, and it didn't work out great in the end.
  15. So last week, I had a big development in my running! Get this. I ran before work! On a track! Okay, that doesn't sound that exciting. But it was literally the first time I had ever run before work, because I have always been a solid after-work and weekend runner. Anyway, a friend invited me to join her at a track that I conveniently pass by every day on my bike commute, at an earlier enough time that I could still get to work at a reasonable time. On a 400 m (.25 mile) track, we did 200m sprints followed by 400m recoveries. I did 8 rounds, and my friend did 10. I have never, ever really tried working on my speed other than just running more to build up my endurance. I am typically bad at getting myself to spring on my normal road runs, but found it really easy on the track. Maybe it was because I was going off of the track markings, which made it very easy to see how much I had left every time. I was very happy with my paces, but I need to find a better way to track myself... I was just using my Pixel's timer capabilities, but that was only as good as I was in using them. Read: not great! Haha. What do people use to track distances/heart rate/times, etc.? I'm thinking I should probably invest in an arm band for my phone, and a running watch (which I've long considered, but never bought). Does anyone have any recommendations for either? Overall, I had a lot of fun! Said friend and I are doing it again tomorrow morning. If I ever get my act together, I might get around to doing a track run 2x/week before work, but that likely won't happen until after the PE exam in April.
