I ended up having a very quiet weekend. Went in for a massage Saturday morning then met my sister to go to the pub to watch the footy. We got to the pub, had a drink and decided everyone was really giving us the shits so we left and got home in time to watch the game in peace and quiet. I ended up sleeping through most of the last half so good thing I was at home!
Saturday night we went to see Hairspray. Mostly I enjoyed it but thought the whole John Travolta as the mother thing was really tacky — lets dress someone up as a woman and put them in a fat suit for a cheap laugh. Plus the face makeup was totally freaky. I’ve never seen the original, which is surprising because I’ve seen every other John Waters film, but I can imagine Divine being much better in the role.
Yesterday I went to Lululemon to get some new running gear. Ended up with a running skirt which is really cute plus a long sleeved top (I tried on a heap of singlet tops but they all looked awful) plus a new running bra. I didn’t end up getting out for a run so am planning to head out tonight to test it all 🙂
Then I ended up napping for most of the day – I’m not sure why I’m so tired, thinking I’m getting a cold but I refuse to.
I’m getting stressed at the moment – it’s 6 days to the half marathon and so much could go wrong:
* I could get injured
* I could fall over and hurt myself
* I could get sick
* my feet could swell up and not fit in my running shoes
* the weather could be really cold
* the weather could be really hot
* I could get abducted by aliens…
It’s like nothing I do this week will help but there is so much I can do that will harm me. Where’s that cotton wool? I felt so prepared a month ago but, with injuries and dramas since then, feel totally unprepared now.
