It’s so hot, I saw a dog chasing a cat yesterday and they were both walking.
I stole that one from one of my running coaches. Who probably got if from a Laffy Taffy.
We DID have a cool front come in today and it is only expected to reach 93 today. Brr, maybe I should have brought a jacket!
I got my long run in on Saturday, instead of Sunday. It just worked better that way for various reasons, but let me tell you, it was SO nice to run with my girls again. Great to catch up, great to run in a smaller group and GREAT to have my long run out of the way at the beginning of the weekend! We headed to the lake for 10 miles, first time since THIS happened. Got yelled at by an ornery cyclist. Dude, it’s pitch black outside and I can’t hear you coming until you are right up on me! Just ring your bell and I’ll gladly move over for you. Or, holler out, “On the left” or “On the right” and I’ll scoot over and give you room. The lake is for everyone. Cyclists, runners, casual cyclists, walkers, kids on bikes, dogs on leashes, everyone. We must learn to share! Having said that, I really appreciate cyclists with bells. I love to hear the little ding that lets me know to move over. It reminds me of my childhood and makes me think that they must be having fun!
Sunday we pretty much tried to stay put during the heat of the day. I did manage to get in 3.3 miles of walking with Hubs yesterday evening. Walking is cross training, right? This morning I arrived at the trail early for 6 miles, which turned into closer to 5.4. I was soaking wet from sweat (I know, sexy, right?) and my watch was yelling for me to get to work. So didn’t put in the extra .60. Maybe tonight.
I’m going to try to play catch up at work today. I have a week’s worth of e-mails to address and need to determine what meetings I’m scheduled for.
After last week’s announcement, which made me VERY sad, I’ve committed to 2 things. I am going to diligently pray for all troubled marriages. God knows who they are, I don’t need names. AND I’m no longer going to watch Jon & Kate plus 8. Just too sad.
Good thing Dance Your (Heiney) Off premiers tonight! Now a weight loss show, THAT I can get behind!
