Barely There

I am realizing that I need another hobby. Now that I workout at (before the) crack of dawn (no joke), I need something to do at night. Jason has his hobbies and I like watching tv and reading. Nothing is on tv right now and if I read when I get home, my new bed time will be 6pm. Not a good thing. I'm too tired to go back and workout at night and I do enjoy the extra time I get with Jason, but I need something on my own.

This morning, my legs weren't awake. It seems like they're asleep every Thursday. I need to wake them up. My rest days are on Fridays and Sundays, and I don't really want to change those, but my legs really to to accommodate my training schedule. They don't want to move as fast as I want them to.

I barely made my legs accommodate my 4 mile run this morning (I wanted to do 6). Then, I think when I squat down at work yesterday, I pulled my injured booty muscle, I didn't want to aggravate it, so I decided against the stairs this morning. Instead, I lifted weights with my sleepy legs. I think that may have woken them up a little, but not enough to go back and run 2 more miles.

What are your hobbies (outside of working out)? What do you do when your legs won't cooperate with your training schedule?


  1. Outside of working out, I enjoy riding horses, reading, reading, and reading. Also I love organizing my closets!

  2. My non-athletic hobbies include hiking (ok, maybe that's a bit athletic still), reading, cooking, writing music, and anything artsy.

  3. So frustrating when the legs don't cooperate! I have learned not to force it... sometimes you just have to scrap it and rest up for the next one.

    Other hobbies... hmm, I guess I don't really have any besides running/exercise and blogging!

  4. I'm a Mom to a 4 year old little girl who keeps me on my toes so I guess that's the other thing I do besides run.

  5. I love looking for new recipes and vegan restaurants in my city! I'm kind of like a food hunter. It's scary.

    Blog stalking is another hobby that is essential in my life.

  6. I get crafty, like the bestie boys told me too!
    Paint, cards, jewlreys, heck, you might even make some side monies!!
