Ship’s Log–January 19th


I expected my back to hurt this morning, which it did not. I did not expect the deep and horrible pain in my glutes. There was no run today. I could barely manage climbing stairs without wincing. Even sitting hurt if the surface wasn’t soft and welcoming. I can now claim with 100% certainty that putting together that foosball table yesterday was, quite literally, a huge pain in the ass.

Despite there being no run, I still ate like today like I was training for a marathon. My cheating is really getting out of hand! We took Thing 1 out for brunch to Toast this morning to celebrate her Future City team placing at their competition yesterday, and I could have ordered the tofu scramble or the oatmeal, but nooooooooo, I had to order the not-vegan, sugar and cream cheese topped carrot cake pancakes. What came out was like a whole 3-layer carrot cake, only pancakey. The dish was insane. I, who normally clean my plate like I haven’t eaten in ages, couldn’t even come close to finishing them. As far as cheats go, this was so brazen that I think I’ve lost my mind.
