Falling Off the Wagon

by Carilyn on December 7, 2012

Forgive me runners, for I have sinned.

I cheated on my taper.

I had to. Really. I was starting to seriously consider cleaning my closet and bedazzling my Nathan Hydration Vest, and we know that ain’t right.

So I ran 8 miles. And then I made this.

Out of this.

And I felt better. For awhile.

Then visions of a clean toaster oven and painted handheld water bottles started to dance in my head.

So I ran another 8 miles, this time hill repeats.

And then made these.

And ate approximately 31 of them.

And I felt better.

But if you see me wearing pink glittered Mizunos, just know that I am tapering.

 

Happy Running!

OMG. You caved. Poor girl. I know how you feel. At least you ate the cookies. That should help.

I did! I’m so bad at tapering :( And the cookies helped for the first few :)

I do hope that you didn’t eat all 31 in one sittin? Really now Carilyn.

You make me feel like a slug! I have not run for a week and still keep eating like I am running.

Carilyn December 7, 2012 at 10:26 am

That’s why I had to run – I felt like such a slug. Plus I was getting crazy – or crazier :)

Carilyn December 7, 2012 at 10:27 am

No, Kent, it just felt like 31 :) Ugh.

Hmmmm bedazzled hydration vest….I think you’re on to something. I hope to see you on Shark Tank soon!
Oh gosh we are kindred spirits aren’t we? Except I don’t have the taper excuse. I’m garden variety nuts.

Weak! That’s all I have to say.
(Damn those cookies look good)

He he! Thank you, Char! :)
