Pulling a Rabbit Out of the Hat
All day yesterday I was so tired I could barely stand on my own two feet.
One time I closed my eyes for a second and my left eye stubbornly refused to re-open. It spasmed and stayed shut for a good 30 seconds before I could finally pry it open. I need a good night’s sleep. Thankfully I have today off of work!
When I got out for my run last night I really wasn’t sure how it was going to go. I was exhausted but the weather was nice and I didn’t want to skip so I set out for just three easy miles.
I just sort of set myself on auto pilot (except for the one time I had to stop because I had an INSANE sneezing fit). To stay awake I cranked up NSYNC as far as my volume would go. I know that’s not great for your ears but I honestly felt like I could have fallen asleep mid stride if I allowed myself to close my eyes.
How embarrassing would it have been to face planted because I fell asleep? Omg.
What a surprise when I finished my run and saw 13:51 pace for an easy run! That has not happened in a long time. Honestly, some days it feels like a struggle to get anything under 14:30 pace. A lot of that has to due with my calves KILLING me, but like I mentioned when my turnover is a little faster I feel a lot better.
This isn’t lighting fast but considering I’ve been struggling just to put two feet in front of each other the last couple of weeks it felt magic. I came home and told Adam I somehow pulled a rabbit out of the hat tonight.
When I finally showered and settled in on the couch I checked SnapChat and saw that Cecil had a field day!
If you want to see more of his snaps (and some of mine too) you can follow us @KristinaRunning :).
So, if you watched my vlog from Monday then you know my new furniture is getting delivered today! Unfortunately I got a call yesterday to let me know a couple of the pieces were on backorder and won’t be available for delivery until Monday.
The couch and loveseat will be delivered tomorrow though and those are the main things we need. Getting those two things in will really help me visualize how the living room with look once it’s complete. I’ll be vlogging the whole day because I can’t wait to show you guys. I feel like I’ve been talking about this furniture forever!

I hope you have a beautiful Friday and I’ll talk to you again soon!
When was the last time you had a surprise/magical run?
Most exciting thing you’re planning to do this weekend?
