Passing On A Little Bit of Funny

This week has been funky. I’ve been in a weird mood where some things have struck me funny and then I can’t stop laughing at them for a day or more. I don’t know if it’s post-good-long-run euphoria (which is like post-race euphoria minus the race, medal, crowd, and oh, the finish line – click here for my post-race euphoria story) or pre-race euphoria (I still can’t believe I get emails directly from the BAA) or just the sun being out for more than one day and the weather turning warm. I actually wore a tank top yesterday. I don’t really care what the reason is, but I love this feeling. It’s like when Maria sings at the top of the mountain. Minus the singing and the mountains.

So in honor of goofy moods, happy thoughts, and good weather, I thought I’d share some of the little posters and videos that have made me laugh this week.

BUT FIRST, it’s been a pretty good week of workouts. We had a pretty easy group run Tuesday morning. I heard it was recovery for what was to come today, and I was scared. But I went about my business pretending I didn’t hear that. We all soaked in the waterway after a good stretch session, and it was just beautiful.

Yesterday was Zero Motivation Day, but I got my run in at a good pace, and Coach K gave me a pass on the strength workout. I scrubbed my floors so I sort of did strength, right?  Today was really tough but really good. I’ve always loved track workouts, especially 800’s. Today was 800’s! (I was still scared though because I totally did hear that today was going to be hard.) I got my pace assignment at a shocking 3:20, and I still can’t figure that out in a minute mile pace. Still. And it’s three hours later. Wait, I just did!!! Dur. I didn’t have anyone to run with, but I started at the same time as the 3 hour marathoners. I certainly won’t be doing that again as I kept pretty close to them until I realized how flipping fast they were going. Even my Garmin was blinking at me “KEEP IT UP AND YOU’RE GONNA THROW UP”. I kept up at my pace, give or take a few seconds, but my energy was just draining out of me. After the 6th one, Coach T said he’d make me a deal and if I came in at 3:20, I only had to do one more. Ok, got it.  Lap 1 was a little slow and I had to pick it up. I did NOT want to do another one! He kept yelling to say how much time I had left and honestly, I couldn’t comprehend. All I knew was that I had to push. I was tired from no days off since last Friday and the 30+ miles I’d gone during the week, but I knew it would be good for me to push past the limit that I perceived was there because really, we are the only ones who put limits on ourselves.  And I finished my last 800 at 3:15. Without throwing up either. What a sense of energy draining accomplishment.  I jogged my last 1.5 miles to get 8 for the day, and I. Am. Done!  I’ve got 6 on Saturday, 20 on Sunday, then it’s taper time, baby!

Well, it’s laughy time, so here you go, hope you enjoy the funnies as much as I did!!!!  I am not taking any credit for these either, just wanted to share – I do not know where they came from besides Facebook and Pinterest.

This one probably made me laugh the most. I felt like this poor guy yesterday but I did not go get drunk :)

This one probably made me laugh the most. Still laughing a few days later.

 

This poor, poor dog.

Have a great day!

    I am dying laughing! This is exactly the reason that I should not read your blog when I’m at work! I can’t even taco bout it with anybody. 😉

  2. Thanks for posting those – hilarious!

  3. I was feeling a bit melon collie this morning, but this post definitely cheered me up. Thanks for sharing!!

  4. That video is pretty funny 🙂 I am still grinning!! I love that the chip “bleeds” nacho cheese. Thanks for sharing!!

    • I just love that video, so glad you liked it too! I feel bad that the one chip was just left there…. to bleed cheese and get eaten by birds. But it’s still funny 🙂

  5. Tough workout! Sounds like fun too.

    • I’m not a huge fan of tempo runs but I enjoy track workouts. I guess if I really think about it, it really WAS a tempo run, wasn’t it. I guess the joke is on me! Oh well, I enjoyed the challenge and glad I was able to step up and do it. Thanks for reading!!!
