This week has been a busy one. My work has slowly been giving me more hours (woohoo!) and then my best friend moved down here too, so I’ve been hanging out with her a lot. This is me and Deborah last December.
This week I learned a valuable lesson. When you put oil in a lawnmower, be careful not to put too much oil in. Because if you do that, it clogs up the spark plugs and smokes a lot and then won’t start again and your lawn starts to look awful…again.
So now I have to figure out where the spark plugs are and clean them off so I can mow the lawn….anyone know anything about spark plugs or lawn mowers? (turns out this is common because I found a couple different Youtubes about it)
I also have to get some things repaired in my car so that it will pass inspection so I can renew my registration. By next Saturday! So it’s going to be an expensive couple of weeks.
We had a new roommate move in the weekend and she’s super nice and adorable. We just have one more girl moving in (maybe this weekend? we’re not sure) and then all the moving in and out will be done for the foreseeable future in this house. Hopefully she’s nice too and then we’ll have a solid house. Crossing my fingers!
Today, Cori on Olive to Run wrote about how sometimes running sucks. I totally feel this way right now. I’m really tired physically and mentally from marathon training and I’m really excited for the race to be over next week. Don’t get me wrong, I am a little excited for the actual race too! But running has started to feel like a chore and that’s not what I want it to ever feel like. I’m excited to take some time off of official training for anything and just run for the fun of it. And if I don’t feel like running or I want to work out in a different way, that’s ok! I won’t feel guilty about messing up my training schedule. I’m excited to get back to running just for the love of it and the way it makes me feel. Just 9 more days, people. 9 more days.
Hope you’re all having a great Thursday!
Seriously, do you know anything about lawn mowers and spark plugs?
Who was/is your favorite roommate?
What is your current running state of mind?
