All Over the Place

I am all over the place these days.  Can't keep a thought in my head longer than a few seconds, leaving post its all over the place to remember anything.   Here's a little overview into my whacked out head.  
  • my ankle, or should I say right lower leg, is making me nervous.  I'm now walking with a slight limp as the pain has move from the inside ankle to the top of the foot and bottom of the calf muscle.  just becoming all inclusive.  I don't ever go to see a doctor but may need to make an exception...
  • had a great 12 miles Saturday despite the right foot/ankle pain.  
  • realized on my run the 1 reason I like winter running versus spring.  in winter there is no one on the path!  Saturday ran past 3 different organized run/walks that blocked the path as well as all the other people that come out when it's nice.  sometimes it's just too much. 
  • weather is gorgeous here and all I want to do is run around outside.  
  • i keep wanting to check the extended forecast for Cleveland but need to remind myself constantly it's pointless.  
  • saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine last night.  My very impressive review - meh... Action was good for the most part (some cheesiness) and I love me some Hugh.  Overall the story and character development really was lacking.  Yes, I know it's based on a comic book but you can't have major holes in the story and never have your characters who are together/good friends/mortal enemies never really connect or never provide a valid reason for the relationship!  
  • hoping for better from the upcoming Star Trek and Terminator these next 2 weeks.  
  • finally finished American Wife last week.  Read this book!   Incredible story and amazingly written.  It is a fictional story based on events in Laura Bush's life.  The book is broken into 4 parts, each  occurring at a different address, in which a significant life event occurs with all the other minor events that may occur to make life what it is.  Here's a fictional glimpse into what may happen behind those closed doors.  
  • now I need to find another book that I want to read.  I have a few on the bed-side table but none I really want to pick up right now.
  • eating (and drinking) like crap these past few days.  really need to get a handle on it over these next 2 weeks.  Hopefully it's not too little too late.  
  • eating well may be tough at the in-laws next weekend.  I just hope they don't start on me having babies since it's mother's day.  who am I kidding, they did before we were married I imagine it's going to be the same or worse now.
  • went to my favorite bar/restaurant today (we go nearly every weekend) and they changed their menu.  of course it included getting rid of my favorite wrap and salad!  the replacement was no good.  I'm sad that I now need to find a new weekend place.  
As you can see, all over the place!  You have to love the taper madness... only 13 days until race day.

I saw Wolverine last night as well. I liked it, but I really like the eye candy! I'm not a huge Huge Jackman fan, but he does look nice in jean and a wife-beater. All muscley and tasty looking...yum.

New book? Hard to make a suggestion without knowing your genre preference...or, are you all over?

Carpe - I'm all over the place with books, will read nearly anything!

Hi Jamie

I am really jealous that you are going to run Cleveland. I love the course and my wife's family is still all down there. For some reason, I also really like the way the course it laid out and I am already planning to do it next year.

Take care of that lower leg. I swear by anti-inflammatories including Ibuprofen 800 or Aleve if my stomach starts bugging me.

Take care and nothing crazy these next couple weeks.

I"m all over the place mentally too, but I blame it on my kids LOL.

Have you read Three Cups of Tea? I enjoyed that one. Gah, I read a ton and I can't think of anything but the mind candy I've been reading lately (Twilight series, Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich, etc.) I really do read other stuff, just can't think of any...

One, I want to read American Wife. Your the second person who raved about it. I officially put it on my 'must read' list for the summer

Two, It's NEVER to late. Stop the madness of the eating and drinking. This is the time. 13 days...

Three, I hate when they change the menu and take off the best thing on the menu. I never know if I should tell them they made a big mistake or just assume they actually know what they are doing.

I have been trying to get through "book of air and shadows" but I just cant. I dont know if it is just my impatience right now or what. Glad the run went well and your ankle is feeling better! Too bad about the Xmen movie! I wanted to go see it but maybe I will wait till it comes out on DVD!

Enjoy your taper.

I hate it when places change their menus, especially if they get rid of something I really enjoy.

I'll have to check the book out. I love reading. My list of to reads just keeps getting longer.

Just wanted to drop by to wish you good luck on your upcoming marathon!

hope the ankle feels better soon! I was in chicago this weekend and it was gorgeous!! I hope the weather continues for you. Take care and rest up for cleveland.

Melanie said...

good luck with that ankle! take the rest that it needs, and i'm sure you'll be ready for the marathon :)

Hey Jamie...hope your ankle/foot pain goes away soon. Could it be related to the lacing on the top of your running shoes being too tight? I sometimes have pain in that exact spot and have found that relacing shoes in a different way or loosening them up in the problem area sometimes helps.

I think "all over the place" is synonymous with taper time so no sweat there.

Good luck on preparation for Cleveland. Enjoy the nice weather in Chicago.
