Randoms

Randoms!

The new IPhone update is throwing me LOL I am one of those old peeps. geesh... Anyone get thrown like this??

I am doing randoms because I just can't stand to hear myself talk about my ailing feet. I am so over the 👣 feet. 

Megan taught me to Snapchat and although challenged, I get a complete kick out of the ridiculousness of it! I love it :)
This is a very serious conversation ;)

Is is lunch time yet?? This thought starts an hour after I get to work everyday.
And yes, I do eat breakfast everyday, and have a protein drink on days I run. What can I say, I like food.

I jacked with my training calendar several times, so I wasn't that far off my mileage just in case....
I mean my feet could get better right.

Eaten comments on blogs. I can not figure out why I sometimes type them all out and they just go away!

Lately, I can not subscribe to any Wordpress comments or replies or anything. I went in and even made a Word press account and tried to delete old ones. No matter how many I delete, it says I am over my limit. Crazy...so if i didn't answer a question that is probably why!

Truthfully, my feet really aren't even half marathon sturdy, but then I go and look for a bunch of races. It is a sickness people, for real.

I didn't want to take my cat to the vet to get her shots because I was afraid her faith in me would be shattered???!  I know, I am not right. She survived very well though.

I like doing the circuit at the gym, but I don't love going up and down on the step. I am going to try do push ups like this in between sets on the machine one day when I feel adventurous :)



My push form is terrible! I need to get the elbows under my shoulders and stop letting them flare out. I catch myself doing this all the time! Elbows in - push up strong. Why is poor form more comfortable?!

Hot humid rain from Sunday night till Thursday night - it was a lot of this and no blue skies all week - eeeek!

My hump day run was a sweat fest even in the rain!

Humid blue skies on Friday! and a promise from my weather friend that Sunday would be the day...it would finally feel like Fall and the humidity would finally ease up.

My view during the fire drill
The sunshine looked strange on Friday lol and it didn't last long.

Sunday the grey was back and I got my long run done. I will do a post about it. I did make it 16 miles. The dream is not completely dead yet...but I am still undecided. I need to see how recovery goes.



Poor form problems?
Guilt when you take your pet for shots?
Eaten comments ever happen to you?

  1. Yay I am famous now! :) you know what really helps my push up form? Using the perfect pushup things I use. In a way they make it harder on your muscles because you can force yourself to have proper form, but it is soooo much easier on your joints! I hope your feet recover well after your 16 milet! Looks pretty. :) I always feel bad if someone tells me my blog ate theit comment because I know it is so frustrating. It's just I'm not tech savvy enough to know why it happens or how to fix it. I'm glad we're snap chat buddies. You make me laugh so hard!

    1. I am going to order the handles when I get paid! I need them and they are small enough I can take them to the gym.
      I have my compression socks on and I have been trying to take breaks and do calf raises today :)
      You crack me up too :) and truly some have been right on time when I need a laugh!

  2. I haven't updated my Iphone with the new update yet. I'm holding off as long as possible. And I struggle with proper pushup form too. Way to go on that 16 miler!

    1. Thanks - it was truly a long run LOL
      i am starting to get used to the update now, but it was the biggest change I have seen in quite awhile.

  3. I hope you had an excellent 16 mile run!

    I'm sorry if I haven't answered your snapchat... it keeps buzzing at me that I'm not doing something correctly and I get frustrated.

    It was very cool here yesterday, so hopefully, we are sending some cooler air your way!

    1. Oh, and I forgot to say... I'm always thinking of lunch, even as I am eating my oatmeal at 8:00. And right after lunch, I start to think... "What am I having for dinner?"

      Delete
    2. hahaha, I do that too! I start asking Kenny what are we eating??? are we working out ?? at like 11:00 in the morning.
      It is ok! I like to snappie whenever :) it is a no pressure chat!
      My run was pretty good until the last few miles I just wrote it out...I will post soon :)

    1. It is crazy how different this update was.
      i am trying to respect my feet, but they are so demanding! Why can't they just chill lol

  5. I always get more nervous than my dogs taking them to the vet. Its awful.
    I have the worst push up form.I know my elbows are too far out.

    1. Even when I think about it I throw those elbows out LOL I am going to order the perfect push up handles when I get paid and see if it helps :)

  6. Hahahah I eat breakfast every morning too but around 10:30 - 11am I am always ready for lunch! I guess we need to have biggest breakfasts!

    I stress when I have to take Cecil to the vet too. My boss keeps telling me that I should have the vet come to my house because it's a lot less stressful, but I don't want Cecil to ever think the vet could randomly show up in HIS house where he should always be 100% comfortable and happy! Cecil was a lot happier this vet visit thanks to his new carrier which is called something like the Happy Cat Soothing Carrier haha. The vet was like "WHOA someone's real fancy these days!" haha I will have to write about it on the blog for other cat moms :)

    1. Funny you are eating breakfast when I eat lunch LOL
      Oh pictures please of the carrier!!
      I have never though t about the vet to the house, but you are right, that would make me feel bad too. Mine Vet is literally 6 minutes from my house...

  7. What a beautiful kitty! I need to take my two young barn cats and the new puppy in soon to get them all fixed.as in neutered. and of course shots... better take my wallet :)
    Sorry your feet are being so bad. I wish I was magic and could fix them for you.
    I eat breakfast early.. like 5:30 early so I am always ready for second breakfast by 830 and lunch at 11. Its a runner thing I think, we are always concerned about the next meal.

    1. It isn't cheap to visit the vet for sure :)
      I wish I had some magic fairy dust too lol
      Ha! so true...we like to eat :)

  8. I love the "random" posts - they are such a great way to get to know my fellow bloggers more! Snapchat is a whole other world that I don't understand, LOL. I haven't updated my iPhone software but keep hearing horror stories about it. My push-up form is awful, too, but I just don't have the upper body strength to do them correctly!!!

    1. I am slow to understand too Emily LOL but I am trying ;)
      Maybe lack of strength is causing my poor form, I am going to order the perfect pushup handles and see if it helps.

  9. I read everything then completely forgot when it came to the trail pictures, sorry lol.

    Keep up the positive attitude, you really are an inspiration in determination.

    1. Snap is fun!
      I feel bad the poor animals get stressed at the vets usually :( it is the best thing but hard to do

  12. I haven't tried snapchat yet... I can not even keep up with the rest of social media. I think it is taking over my life.
    Congrats on your long run... hope your feet are holding up.
    Hope that cooler weather is coming your way. I ran in long sleeves and leggings today, it felt great.

    1. Thanks Karen :) My feet feel much improved today but I can never be sure until I try to run on them. It is supposed to rain here a lot all week so it may be challenging to run this week. Long sleeves and leggings sounds good! but I can not imagine it yet lol
      It is hard to keep up with all the media!

  13. I havent done the iPhone update but that stuff always throws me off too. I probably don't have good pushup form either, I should probably take a video or something! I don't use snapchat but I definitely get intrigued seeing all these funny pics!

    1. A video always helps me to see stuff, it can't hurt to look.
      Snap has been some fun laughs, the filters crack me up.

  14. You have snapchat?! Add me: Fettklump
    I love snap, I always add to my story when I travel and stuff :)
    Your cat is so cute! :) 16 miles, that is awesome Karen! Never let the dream die ;D

    1. Okay i added you! I am very slow on here LOL
      i am trying to keep the dream alive!

  15. I don't think my phone has been updated. Completely in the dark about that stuff, sigh. Yes guilt for pet shots. So sad to take them in. 16 miles is amazing, Karen! Kudos to you for building that kind of endurance in spite of the obstacles you face. There's so much bad pushup form out there. It just feels "easier" to do them wrong. Ha!

    1. Thanks Marcia :) I am trying to get stronger, I don't have long to go hopefully i can ride it out!
      It is crazy how it feels easier to do it "wrong" ha! I guess I made it a habit- working on it though!

  16. I love all the randoms. I'm afraid to try Snapchat. I'd get no more work done. Ever. I have to board my dogs for travel sometimes. Talk about shattering their faith! I eat two breakfasts and continue to stick something in my mouth about every 3 hours during the day. And hey, at least you DO pushups! I'm glad you conquered the 16 miles. A few months ago, did you think you would be able to do that? Thanks for linking, Karen!

    1. Snap chat could be dangerous lol
      I use to feel guilty boarding our dog she would never eat...we have to do what we have to do though!
      I do try with the push ups lol I keep wondering if it helps me!
      No, I really wondered even with intervals if I could last three hours, now I hope it feels a little better next go around :)

  17. If I see one more post on snap chat I am so there! I've really been trying hard not to get swept back up in another social media outlet but dang this looks so fun!!
    You cheat on your push ups like I do! My trainer gets on to me. Maybe why I'm not so good at them. But we all know the only way to be good is to do them! Thanks Karen for hanging in there with us!

    1. Snap is fun - it is quick hello :) but I am with you, I can barely keep up with the blog and IG LOL
      It makes me crazy I cheat on the push ups lol but trying to correct it is hard!

  18. The new iPhone update is too much for me, too. I feel like there must be a million features I'm ignoring just because they'd overwhelm me too much if I tried to learn them! I do like the gifs ready to use in texts, though!!

    1. LOL I have no idea there were gifs in text - looking now! I still have not figured out how people make them... I am still behind the tech curve lol

I love hearing from you ❤
