I don't have much to talk about except my friend, Julia.
SHE LOOKS AMAZING!
She's down to her high school weight, size 4, and fit as a fiddle. She and I hiked 3 miles today up and down the ski slopes and got to chat about life. It was wonderful. I haven't had girl time in a long time.
Congrats Julia, you look great.

Today WVU plays South Florida. Our company is having a tailgate. The good news is we get to leave work at noon to caravan up to the stadium. The bad news is, I believe we are stopping for wings for lunch. Ugh.
With the screwy schedule today, I don't know when I'm going to get time to workout. I didn't swim last night because husby sprung a social event on me at the last minute. He doesn't ask me to do stuff like that very often and the family we went to see has known him since he was a kid and they all wanted to meet me. I felt obligated.
I think even though tonight is a bike night, I may go swim at the base. If that doesn't work out, maybe I'll go to the fitness center there and run on the treadmill. ARG! I am so used to my routine and when things get out of whack I get frustrated.
I really WANT to run today since I've been doing so well. I want to see what I have today. Maybe the rain and the screwy schedule is God's way of telling me I need a break from running.
Anyway, dodge those raindrops and have a great Thursday!

The dog decided to sleep on my tummy and chest last night. Oy.
Coffee is just not cutting it this morning.
Had a good bike ride last night. A little chilly, but good. I rode the rail trail near husby's house downstream to Masontown and back... a little shy of 9 miles.
I have a run and a swim programmed for today. I am guessing from as tired as I am feeling, my run won't go as well as I would hope. It is interval training, though.
I got a high five from the guy who walks at the same time that I run. He's very motivational. He's a soccer ref and stopped me the other day to tell me my run looks like its getting stronger. :)
Gotta get this work day started! Gotta get over the hump!

I have my credit card back in my possession. Whew.
I gave myself a To Do list last night and finished it. I now have one fully loaded iPod shuffle (that I've owned for years but never used) to take with me running. I am not usually a proponent of listening to music while working out outdoors (for safety reasons), but I figure in the cemetary I should be okay. I thought about trying a different route, but the roads are so narrow here with no shoulders that I'm nervous to run on them. I enjoy the safety of the cemetary, the other cemetary and the road connecting the two. The road is a dead end orphaned road from when the interstate was put in, so there's very little traffic on it.
I took a rest from swimming last night. I was exhausted. My body ached. I felt like I had hit a wall and pushing myself any harder may have had unfavorable results.
I plan on a 2.5 to 3 mile run today and a 10 to 15 mile bike tonight. The days have been just beautiful here and I want to take advantage of as many of them as I can. I know there aren't very many left this year.
