Thursday Thoughts - The Running Edition

WOW I can’t believe I’m actually on time with my thursday thoughts post AND I started my new job this week. I swear sometimes I think I function better when I have more things to accomplish.

Anyway, I’m easing into the new full time position by working 2 days a week until June 22. Then it’s full time, pretty much 9-5. On one hand, I’m looking forward to it so I can find my groove and get into a new schedule. On the other hand, I’m worried I’m going to miss the flexibility of working for myself. Ahhhhh the dichotomy of life’s decisions. :) Let’s get to these thoughts as I have a plethora of updates to share!

Other news..

  • I’m lighting a match under the designers butt to get the cook book out by the end of the summer. Again, nothing big, just 30 or so recipes but it’s a start!
  • Have you noticed I stopped mentioning the house?? It’s still on the market but we’ve had some interest!! To be honest, I didn’t want to write about it and then jinx it. Well, that’s not totally true. The husband asked me not to blog or twitter about it, he’s the superstitious one. I had to honor his wishes as he’s never asked me to edit a thing on my site and the poor guy is the butt of many jokes. :) So I’m still going to be a little hush hush just know there is something happening! More info to come on that front.. I promise!
  • As for the new job, so far I’m ecstatic! Interesting projects, awesome office, wonderful co-workers. Who could ask for anything more? The only thing that sucks is the commute but the hours are flexible so I’m hoping to find the optimal time to leave in the morning. Tomorrow I’ll be running 2 miles before heading in. That will be a first! I never worked out in the morning when I had a job before!
  • Ok, I think that’s enough "thoughts". I’m actually writing this Wednesday night so I have to get to bed for work and my run tomorrow. My lunch is made (I do like the return of planned lunches) clothes are laid out and the house is straightened up (well, sort of.) :)

Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Prevention just publishe an article in their July issue called “Turning your Walk into a Run” It is an 8 week program and looks awesome. You can find it on their website, I have the print copy but if you just type in the title in the search box, it comes up. I think I will consider giving this a shot. I may become a runner too. Thanks Roni and good luck with the new job.

    I think your training schedule looks great! There’s flexibility in it, and that can be very important over the months. Also, I think I told you this before but I think it’s very wise to have drop back weeks in between long runs as your mileage grows. Good for you and good luck!

    it’s truly amazing how much yoga can help your cardiovascular endurance, even though it just seems like stretching. i swear my heart (both physical and metaphysical) has become stronger since i started yoga! thanks for all the running posts, i am definitely looking to ease into running soon – it’s my next fitness goal!

    Roni, I just wanted to tell you how much you’ve inspired me! I found your blog through a google search for WW recipes and reading about your running successes has got me planning to train for a half marathon in October…something I NEVER imagined even attempting! I’m super excited for you and what you’ve accomplished. Thanks for sharing!!

    Nice office – the necessities … a lunch bag and computer! Didn’t see a phone? How great to have flexible hours. =)
    I work at a University and we all work the same hours in my department.

    I also feel a little better that I recognized songs on the playlist you linked to. I think I only knew 1-2 songs on your playlist!
