This morning's thunderstorm woke me at 2am and had me laying in bed for almost an hour listening to the cracking of lightening and thunder.... it sounded like gunshots and the lightening was so bright I couldn't sleep.... and I didn't get up at 4:30 to hit the gym.
Instead I went this afternoon. Still, I hate the gym during the day. I couldn't even have the treadmill for the full 30 minutes.... I knew that was the way it was going to be, so I hauled ass on the treadmill and did as much as I could...as fast as I could.
ORN: 2.59 miles, 28:06, 10:50/mile
Lifted lower body
In response to a couple recent comments....
Chad made a comment about how softball can be so hard on the body. He's right. After my 3 games Saturday, on uneven grounds, I was a bit sore yesterday and still forked out a short run. This morning my knees where a bit sore, which hasn't happened since half marathon training last spring. Ouch. As much as I love playing, I am glad to be done for the next 8 months.
Some of you others had made similar comments in reguards to my fear of snow interfering with my Breast Cancer Awareness Ride on October 11. Now, we don't usually get much snow in October, if any, here in North Dakota. None that usually sticks or stays around for more than a day. But, there's always the posibility. Never underestimate the power of Mother Nature in the Midwest. Ever. For reals. Do you want to know how many Halloweens I had to wear layers and layers of clothes under my costume? And they had to be costumes that one would easily be able to add layers and layers of clothes under... like witches, mummies, ghosts.. boring!
This weekend I ended up driving by my soon-to-be-house to show a friend. I was so excited when I noticed the SOLD sign on it... it makes it that much more real! Only 23 more days until I close!
