My mom said that she and my dad were okay with me running alone as long as I texted her every 10 minutes or so and stayed on busy roads so that if I collapsed someone would see me. Because technically tomorrow would be the day I’m clear to be alone anyways, though it’s an ECT day so nope! Not really. Anyways, I was pretty stoked about that because I’ve gotten really bored of just running laps. I did VA loop intending to do an out and back to get 6 miles in, but then I started feeling really weird about 2.5 miles in. I was a bit head warpy/dizzy and couldn’t focus my eyes, just felt strange. So I texted my mom and finished the loop- the shortest way home. Then just lay down for a while in hopes that the weird feeling would pass. I wonder if I had a partial seizure, but I don’t really know. I never lost consciousness and it was only my left side, once I was home my hand started shaking/spazzing out if I tried to lift it, but eventually it stopped. My right hand was fine, it was weird. Same with my legs. Only my left leg twitched/jerked uncontrollably. 

Anyways, my run felt really good until that all started. I kept it slow and didn’t pay attention to pace, just ran comfortably at a pace that didn’t feel hard. A pace I could easily keep up for 6 miles. Ended up averaging 8:14, I was surprised because I was expecting to feel more out of shape. I like going slower.

ECT day, I keep full body twitching randomly so that’s weird. And as usual I’m really tired and can’t stay on my feet. But no headache so that’s a plus. I’m feeling like a 7. 

Cedar City police gave me a ticket because apparently your car can’t stay parked on the street for more than 3 days and mine’s been there for over a month, and they are threatening to tow it. So I’m going to have to mail my car key to my house and my roommate will move it into the driveway. Yikes.

Today I got a blood draw to check how my kidneys are doing. Then today was kind of an off day for me. It seemed to fly by, and I guess I got distracted playing with Millie and Tessa (my 7 year old twin sisters) because all of a sudden they were going to bed and I realized I hadn’t run yet. But I wasn’t really feeling up for laps at Bonneville anyways. My motivation was low and I considered not working out at all today, then I thought nah I’ve gotta do something. So I decided on a treadmill run, then realized the treadmill would be loud and the twins were going to sleep. I asked my mom if it would be too loud and she said I could do a mile but then I’d have to call it quits because it is quite loud. So I did a mile. Then I was like, only a mile? That was nothing... should I call it quits? No! Go do a core workout! So I went outside because it was cooler and did core for 24 minutes, then my sister Hattie got home and I waved at her to come workout with me. I got her to come out for an additional 10 minute core workout. I’m happy to do what I can in my current situation, there’s always something you can do. I also mowed the lawn and that was a good arm workout lol

My mood’s an 8 or 9. Also, I must really like Hattie’s shirt because she just said I’ve told her that I like her shirt 4 times today... hahaha whoops! My memory...

Today, I decided, was my cheat day. I just really was not in the mood for a treadmill run and wasn’t given the option of running at a track unless I wanted to ditch on some plans I had with my best friend, which I really didn’t want to do because her husband is in Minneapolis right now for work and she was counting on me. So I got to swoop in and have a girls night with her hahaha. But now I’m overly stuffed with food and sugar. Cheat day. That’s what I tell myself hahaha. Then I remember that I used to eat like this every day while I was serving a mission... those were the days. CHEAT DAY. That’s gotta count for something! I’m sore from yesterday’s core. And oh yeah- we saw Avengers Endgame and it was awesome.

Also, if I’m being honest I’m slightly terrified to go back to Cedar City. I still have another month here in Salt Lake at least, but idk the thought of going back and living on my own again kinda frightens me. Or maybe it’s going back to what I had before. This time will be different because I’m moving into a place with more sunlight and windows. I didn’t even have a window to the outside in my room this year, and it was in the basement. So hopefully things are better this time around.

Mood’s an 8 or 9
