What’s Up Wednesday: October 23rd Edition

It’s only Wednesday and this week has already been a rough one. I have been dealing with some hip issues that has pretty much brought my training to a halt.

If I don’t run I’m okay, but if I do it gets irritated, and that is irritating me. Last weekend I managed to get an 8 mile run in, and this weekend I planned to do 5 and only managed to do 1. Really my heart wasn’t in it to begin with so once my hip started feeling the least bit funky I just called it a day. That coupled with my little toe cutting the toe next to it, I just wasn’t in the mood.

I’m hoping and praying that I can get 10 in this weekend and then rest as much as I can for the 2 weeks after that and at least be able to get through RnR Las Vegas. I fear I may be in for a new longest half record, which is not what I was hoping for when I signed up.

My mom also kindly reminded me yesterday that I haven’t actually made our room reservations yet . . . yeah I should get on that. Now if it was a runDisney race it would have been done months ago, but it’s Vegas and “last minute” ressies are getting cheaper, so I am pretending it was part of my plan all along.

Then of course I still have that whole moving thing going on. I went to Target yesterday and when I got home Officer P informed me that our agent called and the buyer wants to close early!!!

Part of me is good with this. I just want to put it behind me and move forward, but another part of me is freaking out because that is one less week I have to get everything packed!! So, if I seem to have fallen off the edge of the earth next week, that might be exactly what has happened.

The house hunting is going less then stellar so I am getting a bit frustrated there too. I just keep telling myself to “just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming, swimming” and eventually it will all settle down and the world will be “right” again.


So there you have it.

What exciting things do you have going on this week?


  1. Oh no! I hope your hips feels better and you get back into the groove of running. I felt that way last year when I injured my knee- I was unhappy because I was hurt and unhappy because I wasn' running. I was grouchy :(
    Hope all goes well with your move, it sounds like you are an expert! Before ya know it you will be in a new home unpacking :P

    1. Thank you, Karen! I hope we find something soon. I actually don't mind unpacking because that is probably the only time everything is where it is *suppose* to be. ;)

  2. Hang in there, girl! The whole moving thing is super stressful, but it is exciting!

    1. Yes! I love looking at and getting a new house, but I hate all the drama that comes with it. Plus I just did it all. I'm not mentally ready to do it again just yet.

  3. Hope you get your 10 in and your hip feels better. Can't wait to hear about Vegas!

    1. Thank you, Abby. I chickened out and only did 3, but they were pain free so I will do 10 next weekend instead.
