I didn’t run Tuesday night, instead we went to see Cirque du Soleil’s Ovo, and I’ve never seen any of the Cirque shows before so it was a Big Night.
These little people were awesome. They were the ants, and they juggle stuff with their feet in the most amazing ways possible. First they juggle kiwis (which are 10 pounds each), and then they juggled giant corn, and then each other while spinning disks on their feet and throwing them back and forth (people and disks). It was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen! It was one of those things where you’re kind of like: wow, this is impressive and then it just keeps getting better and better.
This group was awesome too, there was actually 5 people with two exceptionally tiny trained gymnasts who flipped and balanced and then flipped and balanced at the same time. They are apparently supposed to be fleas, which I guess is kind of funny because I always kind of thought fleas were jerks but not these fleas.
Everyone should check out this show, it will seriously entertain you from start to finish! I told my husband that we have to see all their shows that come through the area from now on and he’s totally up for it. We’ll work on our foot juggling skills for the next time around.
I figured that Wednesday my running would pick up back where it left off, but it seems that once a week I have one really bad run and it’s almost always on Tuesday or Wednesday. I don’t know why but I suspect it’s because I run by myself on those days and I let those little aches/pains/heavy legs/tiredness overcome me in a way that I would never let happen on a night where chasing and being chased was a factor. Yeah, I should probably be able to push myself more and like self-motivate but that’s just not me everyday. Today was a crap run, and I’ve embraced it and the fact that there will be a lot more of them. Luckily, most races don’t happen mid-week and if they do I’m not going to them. Suck on that mid-week races and mid-week runs!
