All this talk of Hurricane Irene, and our weather for the next few days looks like this:
I guess I'll be living vicariously through you all this weekend. Man, I didn't feel the earthquake, I don't get to freak out over the hurricane...I feel so left out!
Yesterday at work they came around and were taking everyone's computers and putting them on their desks instead of on the floor, just in case our offices flood. Umm...we've had downpours before and our offices didn't flood. I doubt "Few Showers/Wind" is going to do anything crazy, but I guess only time will tell.
I will, however, be a little annoyed if it's raining tomorrow morning for my six miles. I'm really sick of running on the treadmill, but our neighborhood is SO BORING to run in, so I was considering a couple of running trails around us.
Speaking of running, I've decided that if I survive my 6-miles (hello PDR) tomorrow, I'm celebrating by buying myself a running skirt. I've wanted one for a while, but since money is tight I haven't really been able to justify buying clothes in a while. I am, however, big on rewarding yourself for big accomplishments and since it's something I've wanted, I'm doing it! Kara suggested a Nike Dri-Fit one. Any other recommendations?
|This one comes in PURPLE!|
My run yesterday would have been awesome, except my knees felt off. My left knee felt like it would buckle and I'd be sent flying off the treadmill and my right one was just achy. I will be icing them with regularity today and tonight. I hope it's just them getting used to all the running and that they will strengthen up and play fairly from now on.
Last night while I was lying in bed, reading Catching Fire trying not to think of the uncomfortableness of the ice on my knees, Pippi was trying to figure out what the heck that stuff in the plastic bag is. I tried to get a video of her doing the head cocking, trying to figure out what that noise is, thing that dogs do because it's always hilarious, but as soon as I got out the camera she stopped. I got two other videos though and, since Pippi is tired of being depicted in picture, she requested video, so here it is.
In this one, she talks and then attacks me. Ice makes her violent.
Good luck with the hurricane and be safe! I know it's hard to believe, but your safety is way more important than getting in miles :)
