Did I Just Say That?!!

Sunday, November 11, 2012

I signed up for a emoticon with a bit of coaxing from the Sole Sparkers team.

They're all SO positive and motivating, that after thinking about it for a whole 10 days I said why the heck not!

I clearly failed to mention it to the bf, because after getting home from the gym he asked if I beat my last emoticon time.

I had to explain I wasn't running for speed today, I need to strategize how I'm going to go about the emoticon

He looked confused.

Oh, right, I signed up for a virtual emoticonfor December.

Of course you did, he says.

As if it were a natural progression to go from a emoticonto a emoticon in a matter of months!!

So how long do you think it will take you? He asked, pretty intrigued.

Well, my fastest 5K time was under 28 minutes, but I almost died at that speed, so it would be ridiculous to think I can do a 10K in under an hour... I'm comfortable running a 33 minute 5K, which is about an 11 minute mile... If we double that I'll be at an hour and six minutes... But then if it's only 6 minutes over the hour... Maybe I can do 5 miles at 10 minutes and the last 1.2 miles slightly faster... But then, the competitor in me is then gonna want to get it under 55 minutes... And... You see my dilemma?

No, you can do it in under an hour. Just do it. He says.

While I was showering the words: the competitor in me, kept replaying in my head.

Did I just say that?!!

About MYSELF?!!

And the bf didn't bat an eyelash?

I must look determined and serious about it for him not to have laughed or made a joke.

I'm doing a emoticon people, and at my house, its no big deal.

Just another thing I'm doing.

Who the heck am I these days??!!
