So-I don't have to work today and I am totally taking advantage of it accomplishing NOTHING. So far, I've drank 2 pots of coffee, played 3 games of PS3 NHL '10 and sat at the computer reading blogs! I'm thinking perhaps I could do something constructive with my son but he is in about the same mode as I am so we will likely both be lazy slugs for the rest of the day (until about 3:30 that is; when Joe gets home and we get up and run around like we've been busy doing stuff all day!!)
Yesterday was an eventful day. A 7 year old girl bit me at work, twice, and hard. I really wanted to take a picture of her and piknic/photoshop it with little devil horns and a broom. Grow up-Jenn. Anyway, I totally understand that kids are afraid of the dentist(mine included) and I'm always trying to reassure them and honestly never get upset. This girl was not afraid, she was just a BRAT. Her mother was a BRAT too making it twice as frusrating!!
After work, I raced home, ate and got dressed to head out for my outdoor run! The kids were going to open hockey so we all went to town, parked at the rink and I ran from there. I am sooo loving running outside and I'm not sure how I'm dreading adjusting when the temps are below zero again next week. I had hills on the schedule but I decided I can do hills 3 times a week if I need to on the treadmill but I can only run outside occasionally! It is very flat country up here but we do have a decent bridge over the river. There are two bridge crossings on parallel streets so in my 10 mile run I ran over the bridge 4 times. I can feel it in my calves today so I'm thinking it counts for something. I finished (10 miles/1:20:12/8:01 pace). This was pretty comfortable. I had considered doing my long run today before the snow comes in but I don't think I can fit it in. My son is home and I couldn't run until 3:30. Book Club is at 6:30 and because I have to drive to where I want to run, I would really be cutting it close and probably stressing out during my run.(You can see book club is quite important to me!!) Also, I think I'm a little tired and should have a lighter day. Instead, I will run 4-5 on the treadmill at home and hit the fitness center at 3:30 to workout for an hour or so. I plan to start my long run (17 miles) tomorrow at about 8:00 am so I can make my noon hair appt. I am PRAYING the snow holds off and I am not bound to the treadmill.
So, true to my word, I am posting a picture of myself in my laziness, unshowered, playing PS3! Have a great day!!
