Last night i finished the book i had been reading; Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella and it was actually quite good. Of course it was your typical "girly" book but sometimes i just need a break so i read one and it inspires me in some odd way. Its just like running, sometimes you have to go easy, have a less complicated run, remember why you are doing this and that you actually love it.
Everyone has secrets; recently i found the blog PostSecret and its been very inspiring as well, i also bought the book and its amazing to read other peoples secrets, I don't mind that i have no idea who these people are. Its the fact that there is so much joy and sadness out there in the secrets that we hold on to.
I know that i have secrets, maybe its an only child thing, maybe its just me. Secrets go hand in hand with lies. Ok ok before we get ahead of ourselves, I'm not a compulsive liar just because i have secrets. I know that i like to keep somethings to myself, sometimes its just too personal and/or painful to talk about.
Yesterdays run was good, Very foggy which was cool because as the cars approached me on the road, their headlights glowed in the fog. I just did a little warm-up then ran a fartlek/interval combo thing. It seemed to work well because it gave me some intensity but also a little break as i could feel i was tired from the Monday run, and work has been stressing me out as well as other "life" things. Today i tried to go fast, trying to prepare for this 5k on Saturday. I was grumpy though, last night there were thunderstorm with wild lightning and pounding rain. I love thunderstorms and lightning but sometimes a girl just needs her sleep!
