I used to hurry a lot. I used to worry a lot. I used to stay out till the break of day.

I did it again. I waited until 8:35 at night to log in to Fluid Pudding and give you a daily update.

Seriously. Is the every day thing working for you?

This is me right now.

I’m holding a skein of yarn for two reasons: 1. I’m contemplating headbands. 2. I’m trying to hide the fact that my counter top over there by the refrigerator is covered with pill bottles. (You don’t need to see it. It might worry you, and we don’t need that.)

I’m wearing my Color Runner headband for two reasons: 1. I’m contemplating headbands. 2. I graduated from my Ease Into 5K program today by running for 30 minutes straight, and I’m still waiting for my parade to begin.

My very first run was on September 7th of last year, so it took me nearly 57 weeks to complete an 8 week program. (Sure, I screwed up my ankle and broke my leg a few times, but still! 57 weeks!) However: I did it.

Will I continue to run? Yes.

Will I ever have a 26.2 sticker on my car? No.

Will I keep checking out release dates and reviews for Gel Kayanos? Yes.

Am I getting ready to log out and color my hair a new shade of brown? Yes. Unless I fall onto the bed before I can find an old t-shirt. (This  has been known to happen.) ‘ ‘ ‘text/javascript’>

  1. The every day thing is fun! Knitting a headband? For running or for heat?
    Congrats on finishing the 30min. I could do 30sec probably and I’m still waiting for my parade. :)

  2. Are you thinking of knitting a headband? I used a great little pattern on Ravelry called 18 round Headband. I am a slow knitter and I estimate it took me about 2.5 hours-including reminding myself about how to cable using the video on knittinghelp.com
    Now I want to knit headbands for everyone!

  3. Cool looking shoes! You need to knit a few of those really cute winter headband/earmuff things. Those look so cute and keep the wind out of your ears on the cold morning jogs. :)

  4. Congratulations on the running milestone! I’m training for a marathon that’s in January and still can’t run that long without stopping. :)

  5. I am very curious about this new shade of brown, you must post an update. Will it look good with a purple headband?

  6. Yes, the every day thing is working for me. I need something constant in my life right now and you’re it. No pressure. Ahem.

  7. Oooh, I LOVE parades — let’s get it on!! Parade for Angela, starting in Cupertino CA and ending in St. Louis with a rousing finale (we’ll have plenty of time to practice for that as we go along. St. Louis peeps best be prepared for last minute improvisation, though) right in front of her house. Eventual route TBD depending on where we need to stop to pick up additional participants. Balloons, cake pops and ice cream for all — my treat :-)

  8. It doesn’t matter how long it took you–just imagine, in a year, you turned yourself into a runner. I don’t think I’ve done anything nearly that significant in the past 2 years.

  9. FYI– I’m loving that you are posting every day! I wish I could knit or crochet…I’ll continue sewing and cross-stitching instead…haha–when have I time?! I love the headband that you linked to in the next post…

  10. You rock, Mrs Pudding. Also, you are definitely in a parallel universe, because the lettering on your headband is round the wrong way. And it’s nothing to do with the water going the wrong way down your drain, either.

  11. Boom boom boom, doo doo doo doo. Those odd sounds are supposed to be of a marching band(and they are running..difficult to do both at the same time) for your parade. Congrats on graduating:)

    And I am contemplating red.

  12. Congratuations on completing the C25k! I fell off the running wagon and then moved and I should get back on the wagon but city running scares me a little. Shhhh, don’t tell my mom!
