Mid Week Musings 5

And I’m sick.  Boo.   I tried ignoring it but the damn germs won.    I even went home sick on Tuesday.  Then proceeded to sleep for the next few hours.   I haven’t done any sort of exercise since Sunday.   Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for being lazy- slacker is in my name after all- but not being able to run because I am sick?  Not cool.

El Nino has arrived.   Or at least 2 days of it.   I hydroplaned on my way to work this morning along with plenty of thunder and lightening.   Trees were down all the place, including in our parking lot at work.   Home town flooded pretty badly when we had a freak thunderstorm in July, I am curious how my usual running route looks.    They’ve made some storm preparations but what can hay bales do?

 

What are those going to stop?
 
Have I mentioned that I am a nerd who loves my tv shows?  Both Downton Abbey and Teen Wolf are back.  😏  Now I vacillate between confused/happy/sad on Sundays and Tuesdays.    What is going on?!

I have a race in 10 days.   How did that happen?  I am so not ready.  And I had the date wrong.  I was convinced the race was on Sunday but an email yesterday corrected that.  The race is on Saturday.  I know the difference is only 1 day but for some reason it’s freaking me out.  This will definitely be more a long run with people than a race.  But 8.2 miles equals instant PR right?

Does constant coughing count as an ab workout?  No?  Bummer.  I hoping to attempt a ride on the stationary bike.   Coughing in my house is acceptable, coughing in the gym?  Not so much.    Fingers crossed I can push through a couple of miles.

I never notice how long 90 seconds is until I started drinking hot tea.   That takes forever!

How has your week been?

What are you watching lately?

  1. Boo sick! I hope you feel better ASAP. That picture of the hay bales is kind of hilarious… I feel like they might temporarily delay some mice but otherwise…? 😉 Good luck on Saturday!

  3. Bummer about being sick! I’m on week 2 of constant coughing – totally counts as an ab workout. Glad you survived the storm! It got bad down here too, but nothing like that photo!
