So, because my day was SO eventful I feel I should document it:)
Woke up this morning. Did not feel like working out so did NOT work out. I did a weight workout later last night and it drained me. That's my excuse anyway:)
Got the kids ready for school, loaded up the vehicle and headed to work.
Made it to work, saw we had 3 cancellations and decided to finally get myself in the dental chair for a root canal and a crown prep. (Or I was forced to rather by my boss) I've been totally postponing this and I quickly remembered why. The right side of my scrub shirt wore my drool for about 3 hours and the rest of the day's patients thought I was drunk...I wished I was drunk....I HATE novocaine.
Got done with work EARLY! Woohoo! Picked up my kids, fed them pancakes for supper because I am not as organized as last week. Reese was jealous of my food but I don't share so she had to have pancakes too.
Took Ryan to youth group and the other 2 to open hockey and headed out on my run. 17 degrees, light snow, north wind. I've totally thrown my plan out the window since I don't have an official race date. Well, actually, I'm just not that motivated to follow it to a T right now. Anyway, yesterday was speed (Progressive superset 1600, 800, 400 X3) so tonight was just easy. I decided to run a little fartLICK:) So, I'm cruising along under the street lights with the snow lightly falling thinking about rainbows and unicorns and I literally got hit by a car. Yes, 2 dog bites, numerous falls, one time riding my bike into the street light and now hit by a car..... I have to run on the road or the sidewalk. There are NO running paths here. When I run in town I have to run across a crosstreet every block. They have stop signs. Anyway, I was running (in reflective clothing) and I could see a car pulling up to the stop but it seemed to be an easy cross for me without slowing down. The car apparently did not see me (or even glance to the right), sped up instead of slowing down for the STOP sign and turned right into me crossing-No stop whatsoever. I literally bounced off the hood of the car and saw 2 nice high school aged boys with cigarettes hangin' out of their mouths. Very brief eye contact was made and the little punks sped off. Now, I was not hurt, just scared and I tell you, I ran about the fastest 400 EVER with both my middle fingers raised chasing this car. Why, I don't know. Obviously cars go faster than people and what would I do if I caught it anyway....Seriously, I was just livid. I even understand if it was an accident, carelessness, whatever but DON'T pretend it didn't happen and speed off!!! Sorry buddy but I got your plate and it became my mantra all the way to the police station.....
So, I am sitting here drinking a glass of wine on a weeknight which is against my current weeknight drinking ban. My mouth hurts mostly from the novocaine shots, my jaw hurts from holding my mouth open, my legs hurt because I love to avoid leg weights and then pretend I'm superwoman for one day, my head hurts because I'm getting a cold.
One more day of work, followed by a glorious massage and then I'm off to Duluth on Friday with Reese for the weekend. Hills hills hills! I am WAY slacking on my hills so it will be fun to run there!
I know I said I would write a more interesting post soon. Soon is relative....this is not a food blog but at some point I will profile what I eat since I've gotten a couple of emails about that and one topic I'm interested in is ideal race weight.
There you have it. Word.
