Wet dog... wet me!

So I set out on my morning walk under beautiful weather conditions. But that didn't last... oh no, definitely not! Around miles 4 it started raining, then it started pouring, then the thunder and lightning started. Cooper was NOT a happy pup! I ended up carrying him the last 1.5 miles inside my jacket. Even that didn't help much as I was just wearing a denim jacket, not a raincoat. It soaked through the denim jacket, the hoodie I was wearing as well as the turtleneck and tshirt I had on. My boots got soaked, as did my jeans. I changed into dry things on my top half, but left on the jeans because, yes, I can be a moron at times. I could not get warm... and it didn't occur to me until I was sitting in the restaurant with my friend having lunch that it was probably the clammy jeans I was wearing. Doh! I did eventually dry out, except my hair which is still damp. Cooper got warmed up and dried out by running around my apartment like a crazy dog and rubbing up against all the furniture.

I am going to do my best to get to the gym tomorrow, but plans are evolving with my niece that may prevent it. I will have to play it by ear and stay flexible. If it isn't raining tomorrow I might just run outside, as the temperature is mild enough and the sidewalks are clear. For some reason I still feel self conscious about running outside. I have no troubles running at the gym. I wish I had someone to run with me. I think that would help a lot.

Today I walked a total of 10.1 miles and did 45 modified pushups and 24 big girl pushups. That's enough, don't you think?! (They helped get me warm again though.)
