Reminder to self: Don't drink so much beer the night before a race! Ugh...
Good luck I hope you do well.
Good luck and have fun!
When you round the second bend, you will see a bunch of us pandas waving and cheering you on. I'll be the one holding the sign that reads, Go, Jeff, go!!! written in glitter ink.
Hope it went well xx
Which race Jeff? :) some friends did the flower city marathon today. Heard it was cold and yuck.
Hope the race went ok. Doing my math you should already be done. I've never been good at math though. =/
I hope it was amazing!
An odd but good weekend, I hope? Hope your leg soreness goes quickly.
Hope your leg feels better soon & the anxiety goes away. Although, I'd take leg soreness over anxiety any day!
It's interesting how a bad night sleep can trigger your anxiety isn't it? I have the same. If I have coffee on a day like that it even gets worse. Be kind to yourself. And give your legs their well deserved rest!!
Thanks, pandas! Yeah, I need a few days off, Esther. Easy run on Sunday, so two days off before. Will feel good!
Green!! Love it. Xxx
My running partners, who I used to think were friends but felt really left out of lately, had one guy drop do to injury, so they asked me to join. That will be fun! I hope the weather is good...
Happy for you, Jeff! x
That's great, Jeff! I'll be hoping for good weather for you too.
Thanks, pandafriends! :)
That's great news. Happy for you
Dog's been sick lately. Won't eat much. Getting me nervous! I worry about him!
Horrible night's sleep. Weird headache gave me lots of thoughts about my own mortality in middle of the night. Felt thankful to wake up, and doing ok this morning, just tired.
Glad you made it through the weekend ok. Was hoping the visit with your parents went well. Sorry about the other stuff though. Hope you feel better soon.
I'm glad my parents care about me and support me. It's just hard because I'm alone so often, it's difficult to function with other people. And I cope by maintaining my own routines, which are hard to break.
I'll hear about how messy my house is (it's fine) and other things I SHOULD be doing, and I'll get less sleep and eat worse. And then they'll be gone and I'll feel lonely again without that time to myself to recharge from the work week...
I'm sorry, Jeff. I can see the conflicting feelings. I wouldn't my parents to visit. It would drive me crazy even though I love them. Plus, whenever my routine is broken, it all goes to ***. Good luck!
I sometimes experience the same. I like to see my parents but they stress the **** out of me. And it's your choice what you do with their suggestions? They probably don't want you to feel lonely ^^
Sounds like there's a lot of awareness there. Would it help to hold that and play with choosing different responses? Ex: I practice an intensity exercise w/ mentor. If SHOULD is trigger, he'll say that. I connect. Talk it through.
We keep going until I have enough resilience and practice to respond to trigger in a way that meets my needs.
Didn't need that last beer, but the bartender gave us a free round, and how do you refuse that? Don't think as clearly when you've had several. Knew it would bother me today. Blah.
I always feel this way after drinking more than I intended.
Can't pass up a free round. At least it's Thursday! Do you have plans for the weekend?
My parents are visiting, which will be nice and stressful. I have to run 19 miles (according to training schedule) Saturday morning.
Ugh, not so relaxing. Wishing you the best!
Sorry you are feeling this way. Hope the visit with your parents goes nicely.
Hope those feelings pass soon Jeff. Have a good day. Best wishes, Noel
The radio show is always a nice couple-hour break...fun to play my music for people. I do wish I brought a beer though...Craving beers.
Yep! Spinning some tooonz!
Glad the insurance went smoothly. What kind of songs do you play?
Mostly indie rock, Manda. Lot of stuff from my collection is older (late-90s, early 00s), but some newer indie music too. I try to do a different theme each week.
Nice! My kind of music.
Jeff, I'm a big fan of indie rock. Do you have any mixes available online? Or drafts of mixes?
Yeah, I know you can listen to Tasha's BF radio station online. Can we listen to yours?
You guys can listen. It streams online and I archive all the old shows. I'm just trying to figure out if I want to share it, because it will kinda break the anonymity here! Again, wish we had private messaging!
Ah, I see your hesitation. Don't feel pressured into anything you don't want to do. We think you're cool for listening to it anyway! =)
