Today’s Run: Hit My Weekly Goal!

img_20180318_205046_748712894903.jpg

I tried three times and for some reason, the app kept reloading the Canada mission… Ah well. I like that one. It has crazy Margaret Atwood in it.

I am liking the idea of posting to the blog every time I do a run. I honestly feel like I NEED to make sure I run because I don’t want to skip too many days of posting.

Saturday I took a rest day… Well, less of a rest day and more of a took-my-car-in-and-was-stuck-doing-that-all-day… Day. And it cost me $900!

Thanks, fucking asshole potholes in all the damn streets!

Anyways, as the title states, this is the run that put me over my 10 mile a week goal. I use Google Fit’s measurements; which go from Monday to Sunday rather than Sunday to Saturday. Oddly enough, my knee started randomly bothering me. I just took it easy and finished the run very carefully.

I can tell my speed is increasing since it’s taking me less and less time to get to 2 miles. However, I still feel dead on my feet around 2.5 miles; making getting to 3.11 or 6 miles feel as if they might as well be a million miles. I know the adage is “your race, your time” but I don’t want to take so long to run 3 miles and I would like to spend less time walking.

I can tell my endurance is better from a couple weeks ago. I just need to be patient.

As for my food today? No pics. I had Wendy’s. Today was a #fuckthediet day.

Lenni Reviews: “Angel Catbird” by Margaret Atwood, Tamra Bonvillain, and Johnnie Christmas

Mild-mannered genetic engineer Strig Feleedus works for the obviously evil at first sight Dr. Muroid perfecting a formula to replace damaged genes with healthy ones. When he cracks the secret, Dr. Muroid attempts to have Strig killed but in that attempt, Strig’s genes are mixed with his cat and a passing owl; giving him the ability to transform into Angel Catbird. After this miraculous change, Strig is dropped into a hidden world of other people who can change as well.

This is a fun, tongue in cheek origin story that manages to be both modern and harken back to classic Golden Age comics and all of their delicious campyness. That being said, if you don’t like multitudes of painfully obvious puns, you will not be happy reading this book. I can see how someone would get annoyed by them. While cringe-worthy, I get what the tone was going for and I ended up just smiling and shaking my head more often than not. I give this a solid 3.7 for looking great and giving me some chuckles.
