Well as I said in Tuesday night’s post, I had a long shift ahead of me on Wednesday. 10 hours on my feet. Which turned into 11 hour because we were freakishly busy due to another bout of snow slowing drivers down.
Now I don’t really feel like I can complain too much. I only work there part-time, usually for no more than 8 hours a pop. (Dave usually works 12 hours a day minimum.) Plus I really really LOVE it (I mean look at all the cool food I get to make/eat). But I only sat down to eat once and my dogs were barking a mere 6 hours in. I ended up leaving around 9pm (which is super late for me) with only a protein smoothie and two meals-to-go in hand. I downed the protein drink, but didn’t even have the energy to nuke some dinner. I crawled into bed fairly soon after I got to the apartment.
I only realized at midnight that not eating more during the day was a ginormous mistake. And that my legs hurt like crazy. I tossed and turned about an hour before I decided to get up, get some food in my belly and take some advil for my poor sore legs.
Although waking up and eating in the middle of the night isn’t super fun, I do have today off so I was able to get some glorious and much-needed sleep. In light of my lazy day, I have a light post saved for such an occasion. Plus I think it qualifies for Amanda’s Thinking Out Loud link-up. Bonus.
I saw this fun running questions survey on Cori’s blog Olive to Run (confession: it took me a long time to remember her real name..it isn’t Olive haha). I’ve been getting a little more into running recently (read: I go through phases and I’m just getting out of the “I hate running and am taking x months off” phase). In fact, I ran a couple of miles last night after work. (The fact that my legs are super sore is making a little more sense having said that.)
