Yesterday was one of those gloriously lazy yet still somewhat productive days. Since marathon week has officially started I attemped to sleep in, but only made it til 6am. I went for a VERY sweaty, hot, humid, somewhat miserable run of 8.5 miles. I took my time stretching, cooling off, eating breakfast, and getting ready. Then I walked to the library and checked out some books:
Interpreter of Maladies (short stories) by Jhumpa Lahiri
Too Much Happiness (short stories) by Alice Munro
Noah's Compass by Anne Tyler
If you haven't read any of Jhumpa Lahiri, you should start. I started The Namesake around 11am and I completely finished it at 4:30. It was glorious.
In between all that reading I dropped off the recycling and then went to the park and sat in the grass and read. I got some sun and also got to see a deer! At home I shared the couch with this little one.
Per marathon week "rules" I mixed in chia seeds to my morning yogurt and I had a green smoothie as part of dinner.
Dave and I watched the movie 500 Days of Summer last night and loved it... well, mostly loved it. We loved the quirkiness, the music, the acting. We didn't really love some of the ideas/perspectives about love or relationships. Still, I'm glad we watched it and really loved the unique way they played with different movie styles. It was so creative and cute!
I made it til 6:45am this morning and now am headed out for a short run before church. Not sure what Dave and I have planned for today or tomorrow - but probably lots of lazy fun!!
(Also, weather.com is going to make me go into fits before this marathon, I swear. The ten day forecast says that June 5 will be 72 and rainy - which I love - but if you click the actual day it says sunny and 89. I'm choosing to believe the 72 and rainy, because 89 and sunny sounds like pure running hell.)
