Too much rain :(
Monday, June 10, 2013
North Georgia is getting socked with rain! Not as much as a lot of people, but we are experiencing some flooding and it's pouring right now!
I ran outside on Thursday, but it was very humid! I took DD#1 to work on Friday and DD#2 and I ran in the gym. It starting pouring after we dropped off DD#1 and the entire time we were in the gym. It was raining so hard, it sounded like the roof would cave in (the running track goes around the top of the gym, so it's closer to the roof!). A couple of times there would be bolts of lightening and very loud thunder! It was scary, even inside!
I had a pretty good run Thursday & Friday. I'm slowly working my way back up to running the entire 3 miles. I ran 2 miles straight on Friday (I hate counting those laps!) and then walked a lap and ran another 1/2 mile. My speed is usually pretty fast on the indoor track too!
DH had a rare Saturday off, so we spent most of the day doing yardwork. Even though the grass was still pretty wet, the weather report showed Saturday as being our best bet for a little sunshine. It was actually pretty nice most of the day, so I spent most of the afternoon cutting grass. DH took DD#1 to work and picked her up (I'm still not ready to drive with her yet!), so the only running around I had to do was take DD#2 & friend to the movies.
Sunday morning was still pretty sunny/partly cloudy. I ran to the grocery store and then had to pick up DD#1's boyfriend. When I got home, I had to take DD#2 to a basketball tournament (she was getting paid to keep the books) and pick up DD#3 from friend's house.
When I finally got back home, my sister was there with my great nephew. We were only able to get in a short walk before it started raining again. It rained the rest of Sunday, so I didn't get to run (the indoor gym closes early on Sundays).
It was also raining so hard, we also couldn't grill out like we had planned. I'd like to say my eating was good over the weekend, but it was pretty "off". I was even starting to "crave" veggies on Sunday!
I was just not prepared for summer to be this busy! Our fridge was so empty on Sunday, I was able to clean the shelves and drawers and not move a lot of stuff around! Usually it's loaded with fruits, veggies, etc. I stocked up somewhat yesterday, so I had my healthy breakfast & lunch. We still have the stuff to grill out for tonight, so hopefully the rain will go away!
